Patients with an overactive bladder could have a rechargeable wireless device fitted to ease their condition, according to draft guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

NICE noted in its draft guideline document that around 19% of people in the UK had an overactive bladder, women and older patients most likely to be affected.

Government health minister Nicola Blackwood said: “This revolutionary device offers a new solution to help people managing this condition to go about their everyday lives free from worry or disruption. Our priority is to ensure NHS patients have access to the latest innovative treatments.”
