Biofeedback for child wellness!

On April 6, Opération Enfant Soleil renewed its support to the HMR Foundation for the 5th year by donating $16,073 to the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont Pediatrics Department. This invaluable support will help finance biofeedback treatments for urinary incontinence in children.

Developing continence marks an important step toward a child’s autonomy. When an incontinence problem becomes chronic, the child and the family may feel a great sense of heaviness, or even distress. The acquisition of a biofeedback device for bladder training using biofeedback may lead to a significant improvement, or even to the resolution of chronic symptoms. In this way, the treatment contributes to reducing psycho-familial repercussions, to the great delight of children and their families.

Thanks to their generous donation, this specialized technique can provide children with effective ways of dealing with the situation. The Foundation wishes to express its heartfelt gratitude to Opération Enfant Soleil for its loyal commitment to child wellness!
