We have previously demonstrated that this app facilitates training for men undergoing radical prostatectomy. More than 10 000 men have used the app. Now, we want to study if the app affects the need for contacts with health care facilities. The app is updated with new content, new illustrations and questionnaires. The app is free to download at App Store and Google Play.
The pink app, which is now being produced by eContinence AB, contains simpler free content and the possibility to upgrade to Premium with new exciting content and new features. Initially the app will not be available in all countries due to the CE marking regulations there. Find out more here

We will soon launch a completely new version of the app including simpler free content and the possibility to upgrade to premium, with new content and new features. Initially the app will not be available in all countries due to the CE marking regulations. Read more here
