Loss of bladder control results causes the accidental leak of urine is called urinary incontinence. It may be slightly bothersome or totally debilitating. It may leads to embarrassment and keeps them away from enjoying many physical activities, including exercising. Urinary incontinence may develop emotional distress because of some outside factors, such as difficulty getting to standing position or only being able to walk slowly, which prevent them from getting to the toilet on time.
Old women experience urinary incontinence more than young women or young girls. Muscles in the wall of bladder contracts during urination. Sphincter muscles surrounding the urethra relax which let the urine to pass out from the body. Incontinence will occur when the muscles of bladder suddenly contracts or are not strong enough to hold back the urine. Then the urine may escape with less pressure than usual when the muscles are damaged, this causing a change in the position of the bladder.
Stress incontinence is the most common type of urinary incontinence. 80% of the females suffering from urinary incontinence have stress urinary incontinence. Obese women having greater intra-abdominal pressure leads to weakening of pelvic floor muscle which causes stress incontinence.
During pregnancy, child birth and menopause physical changes results in the weakening of muscles of bladder. As the result of physical exertions, muscles of bladder become weak that increase intra-abdominal pressure leakage may cause. Leakage may occur during coughing, sneezing or heavy lifting.
Wii fit games are computer-generated scenario that simulates experience through senses and perception. This approach is being used by physical therapist so than their patient stick to their exercise protocol and it enhance their training and functional level. Wii fit game based pelvic floor muscle exercises helps the pelvic floor muscle to strengthen by different movements such as anteversion,, retroversion, lateral tilting, truck rotation, circumduction and pelvic stabilization. video game based treatment that enhance patients' motivation, functional training and hence adherence to exercise regimen. As clinical practice in women's health physical therapy lacks options for pelvic floor muscle training and wii fit game based pelvic floor rehabilitation is an innovated method so could be a valuable adjunct in management of female urinary incontinence protocol.

Experimental: Wii Fit Training Experimental Group
receiving Wii fit based abdomino-pelvic training
Other: Wii Fit Training Experimental Group
Experimental group receiving wii fit game based abdomino-pelvic training. A specific protocol was developed by the researchers. Wii fit games which promote exercises focusing on the abdominopelvic cavity strengthening, using as a therapeutic means a Wii™ console with a Wii Fit Plus™ CD game. The protocol was design that which playing games participant perform different pelvic movements such as anteversion, retroversion, lateral tilt and circumduction that maintain trunk control and stabilization with mild abdomino-pelvic muscle activation. Duration of each game is 5 minutes with 90 seconds interval between them twice a week. After performing the sequence of virtual games, a series of abdominopelvic and lower limb muscle stretching exercises will done.
Active Comparator: Conventional Training Control Group
receiving conventional pelvic floor exercises.
Other: Conventional Training
Control group (n=20) receiving conventional pelvic floor exercises. Conventional exercises includes:
- EMG biofeedback [ Time Frame: 8 week ]EMG biofeedback device shows electrical activity of pelvic floor muscles and can assist with both muscle strengthening AND relaxation training
- Michigan Incontinence Symptoms Index: [ Time Frame: 8th week ]Michigan incontinence symptoms index is a clinical measure of type, severity and bother related to urinary incontinence.The M-ISI is a parsimonious measure that has established reliability and validity on several levels and complements current clinical evaluative methods for patients with urinary incontinence
