2. The method of claim 1, the detecting comprising monitoring a state of a bladder of the user. (0)

3. The method of claim 1, the patch affixed behind and/or below an ankle bone of the user. (0)

4. The method of claim 1, the electrical stimuli activating a tibial nerve of the user. (0)

5. The method of claim 1, the generating the electrical stimuli having a duration of approximately 10 seconds. (0)

6. The method of claim 1, the electrical stimuli comprising square waves having an amplitude between 10 and 100 volts, pulse widths between 100 and 500 microseconds, and a pulse repetition rate of between 3 and 30 pulses per second. (0)

7. The method of claim 1, the electrical stimuli comprising voltage-regulated square waves having frequencies between 10 Hz and 50 Hz, and having currents between 20 mA and 200 mA. (0)

8. The method of claim 1, the electronic package further comprising sensing circuits and an electronic switch to alternate between stimulating and sensing, the electrodes providing the stimulating and the sensing. (0)

9. The method of claim 1, further comprising: receiving the patch as a kit that includes instructions that instruct the user to activate the patch within 10-15 seconds of the user feeling the urge to urinate. (0)

10. The method of claim 1, the control unit applying an electrical signal via the stimulators to the electrodes to generate electrical stimuli of varying tissue depths based on a variation of power. (0)

11. The method of claim 1, the electrodes comprising a pair of interlocking electrodes, the control unit applying a time-varying voltage signal via the stimulators to the interlocking electrodes to generate a beam forming electrical stimuli. (0)

12. A system for treatment for an overactive bladder of a user, the system comprising: a patch externally on a dermis of the user, the patch comprising a flexible substrate and an adhesive on a first side adapted to adhere to the dermis of the user, an electronic package directly coupled to the substrate, the electronic package comprising a control unit and one or more stimulators, and electrodes directly coupled to the substrate and the electronic package (7) (2)
 

20. A method of treatment for an overactive bladder of a user experiencing a symptom of overactive bladder, the method comprising: providing a topical nerve stimulator comprising one or more electrodes and a power supply in electrical communication with the one or more electrodes (0) (2)
