Why is it important?

Clinical Messages: •Within three weeks, a combination of continence training and sensorimotor training with an oscillation rod is more effective than conventional continence training alone and it has a beneficial effect on measured quality of life. • Benefits are greater in those patients with more severe incontinence.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it shows a new way to treat urinary incontinence.
