Regular pelvic floor muscle training and use of the app Tät® were associated with improvement

When freely available, two thirds of users who answered the 3-month follow-up found their symptoms of urinary incontinence to be improved, the same level of improvement rates as with other forms of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT). In a recently published study we further analysed factors associated with improvement and found that regular PFMT and app use both increased the odds of improvement. The study can unfortunately not determine, whether this additional effect of app use is a result of more focused PFMT or other functions in the app. The article is available in full-text here

New study of the real-world effectiveness of the app Tät® for urinary incontinence

We have analyzed data from 2672 women with urinary leakage, that responded to anonymous questionnaires at download of the app Tät® and after three-month. In a previous trial we have shown that the app is effective regarding improvement of urinary incontinence in comparison with a control group. We can now conlude that the app Tät®is effective for self-management of urinary incontinence even in the real world. The reduction in the incontinence symptoms was less and the users did not exercise as often as in the previous clinical trial. Read more in BMJ Open
