How Yarlap® Came to Life

Incontinence significantly impacts quality of life. It is wide spread among women of all ages but It is a condition many find too personal to disclose.

The physical discomfort and disruption may carry the additional emotional burden of shame and embarrassment that often occurs with leaks. Indeed, there are clinical studies that suggest a correlation between female incontinence and depression.

Exercise is the natural solution. Unfortunately, for a significant number of women who try to tone their pelvic floor muscles with Kegel exercises, as many as 60% find it difficult to determine if their pelvic muscle exercises have been performed correctly, even when guided by a licensed healthcare professional.

Yarlap® solves the problem – it stops the cause of the leaks and is FDA Cleared to help you maintain urinal control! Plus, treating the cause is significantly cheaper than diapers and much more environmentally responsible.
