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.

Understanding the Enuretic child by Dr. Jacob Sagie and Tal Sagie

Knowing the causes for bedwetting is not enough. It is essential that the parents will understand what it is like to be a child with a bedwetting problem. Since it is a genetic issue, many parents have suffered from bedwetting themselves. Even this is not enough of a preparation to deal with their child's issue.
What is going in an enuretic child's mind? The following story will illustrate the typical situation;
I received a phone call from an ex-patient who is 25 years old. He told me that when he was 9 years old he came with his parents to my bedwetting clinic. His parents accused him of not trying hard enough to deal with the problem and then he reminded me of my response to his parents: "What do you want from him? Why do you blame him? He does not wet the bed on purpose; he doesn't feel when he is wetting the bed". The young man said, “For the first time in my life, I felt that someone understood me". Although many years passed since this meeting, he remembered every single detail from this session and was so grateful. By the way, he outgrew bedwetting after only 3 months of treatment.

If parents will realize what is going on in their child's mind they will certainly act differently by showing understanding, sensitivity, empathy and support.
