Neurotech Vital Compact Versus Itouch Sure Pelvic Floor Exerciser US
A prospective, randomised, controlled, single-blind, multi-site clinical study employing Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles of women suffering from stress urinary incontinence. Approximately one-hundred and eighty (180) female patients diagnosed with stress urinary incontinence will be enrolled in this study. All patients who are considered eligible to participate in the clinical study and give consent will be randomised to complete either a 12-week treatment programme with the Neurotech Vital Compact device or a 12-week treatment programme with the itouch Sure Pelvic Floor Exerciser. The 12-week treatment programme will be completed by the subjects at home with treatment with the device in accordance with the device Instructions for Use.
