How do Male Incontinence Clamps work?

Incontinence clamps for men are worn around the penis to block the urine flow. They apply gentle pressure to the top of the penis and urethra. This slight pressure controls the bladder leakage without affecting the blood circulation in penis. The penis clamp is required to be released while urinating to allow the flow of urine into the toilet or urinal. It can be worn comfortably during day and night. But it is important to remember that the clamp should be released every 2-3 hours to prevent bladder overfilling.
