Two years after the treatment we followed up those women who had used the app Tät® for treating stress incontinence. The improvement in symptoms and quality of life, compared with before treatment, was statistically significant and at the same level as three months after the start of treatment. The long term results provide support for use of the app Tät® as a first-line treatment. Read more here (summary in English).
A health economic analysis of the app Tät for treatment of stress incontinence was recently published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research. The study concludes that the app is a new, cost-effective, first-line treatment alternative which can increase the access of these women to healthcare in an economically sustainable way.

The treatment of stress incontinence via the internet or via the booklet has been shown to also produce good long-term results. In the article ”Non-face-to-face treatment of stress urinary incontinence: predictors of success after 1 year“ we have examined what the predictors are for successful results after one year. The results at the 1-year follow-up were found to be more successful in those women who achieved successful results from the pelvic floor exercises after 4 months, those who exercised regularly in the final month before the 1-year follow-up, and in older subjects.
