Capstone Project:

Incontinence has major psychological, physiological, and financial implications for children and their families.

Urinary and fecal incontinence, the involuntary leakage of urine or stool, is a common problem among both adults and children. Although most patients will improve with behavioural therapy and medication, 1% of patients will become refractory, not responding to any treatment. Sadly, these patients are currently condemned to a lifetime of poor self-esteem, shame, isolation, poor school performance, aggressiveness, and other behavioural challenges.
