How does THERAPEE treat bedwetting in a unique way for the patient?/ By Dr. Jacob Sagie and Tal Sagie

There are always several factors that need to be considered in order to develop a treatment method for enuresis: gender, age, frequency of bedwetting, and day control are just some of these. That being said, treating a twelve-year-old who rarely wets the bed is going to be very different than treating a five-year-old who wets the bed every night and has daytime control trouble too.
Not all patients respond to bedwetting treatments in the same way. Rather, responses can be fast, slow, regressive, and unstable. Therefore, a therapist’s response to a patient's progress should be carefully considered in every case. Furthermore, the child's and parents' attitudes toward the therapy are important to take into consideration as well. And while treatment is going on, situations can arise that influence progress.
This is exactly what makes THERAPEE
so unique. In Dr. Sagie's bedwetting clinics, we have identified and collected data from scenarios we have faced in more than 30,000 patients since 1984. As a result, we have been able to define every possible patient profile using personalized parameters. This has led us to come up with some detailed and complex algorithms that we can use in order to give tailor-made and computerized responses to enuresis patients using the software.

Specifically, we  use what we call a “visual chart,” which requires parents to supply information about the treatment itself. From there, out system carefully analyzes and computes the data to ultimately provide the right response. From there, the patient views a video clip of a bedwetting specialist addressing the child and parents while also giving feedback regarding progress, next steps, and positive reinforcements.
Essentially, THERAPEE provides a customizable and tailor-made treatment that is similar to an actual face-to-face treatment with Dr. Sagie, and not just  a CD with basic instructions that are appropriate for everybody.

Bedwetting is Treatable! By Dr.Jacob Sagie and Tal Sagie

Bedwetting may seem like a problem to which there is no solution, but this does not have to be the case. Unfortunately, bedwetting can leave children feeling humiliated and embarrassed, which can keep them from freely participating in normal activities like sleepovers, camping, and other overnight visits away from home. In fact, enuresis can even keep people from dating and having a desire to get married, in some cases.
However, it is vital for parents to realize that there are solutions to bedwettin
g. It is not an impossible problem to solve. All it takes is some time and dedication to locate the right treatment for your child suffering from enuresis. In the meantime, showing faith in your child and building his or her confidence throughout the process is also important. The sense of relief and pride that children who have overcome enuresis feel can be best demonstrated by their own words:
This sixteen-year-old female was treated along with her sisters of ages fourteen and eight. She wrote:
There is simply no way for me to describe the sense of joy I feel right now. Today, I woke up completely dry, and it is such a great feeling for me. If you are a boy or girl suffering from bedwetting, take my word for it: do not give up. Have some faith in yourself and eventually, you will also success. One day, you will be able to stop wetting the bed and it will be wonderful. Best of luck to you in overcoming enuresis. Trust me, it's an amazing feeling.
N. female, age eleven wrote:
Nobody could possibly imagine how happy I am that I stopped wetting the bed. It's hard for me to find the right words, but I can finally say that I did it. Before I was treated for enuresis, I could not sleep anywhere but in my own bed.. My own younger sister even stopped bedwetting before I did and it really discouraged me for awhile. However, I kept trying, and now this is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

The causes for bedwetting by Dr. Sagie

The conventional train of thought among both parents and many pediatricians is that bedwetting is a medical or psychological problem. Often, the patient undergoes a comprehensive and unnecessary medical assessment with no findings. However a medical, neurological or urological, problem is only the primary diagnosis among 2% of enuretics. A psychological cause, such as family problems, social adjustment, or fears is a factor among an additional 20-25% of the patients.
In fact, the majority of enuretics (75-80%) do not have either anatomical or psychological problems. For most enuretics the primary source of the issue is unusually deep sleep.  These are normal, healthy children who have not learned to activate the appropriate reflex system during sleep. Typically, when a person sleeps and pressure is built up inside the bladder, a signal is sent to the brain. Among enuretics, the signal is not recognized by the sub-conscious reflex system and instead of contracting the sphincter muscle, the circular muscle that keeps the bowel closed, the child relaxes the muscle and urinates during sleep.
