IMPRESS funds Pilot Study for Incontinence in Children

 

IMPRESS has awarded funding to a new pilot project focussing on incontinence in children.

The manual dexterity and mental maturity required to operate some of the implantable devices used to treat urinary incontinence means these devices are not ideal for younger patients. This six month study seeks to investigate the plausibility of adding intelligent electronic control to such devices in order to make them more user friendly for children while possibly also reducing the risk of tissue erosion, which has been a long standing drawback and significantly reduces the long term success rate of such treatments.
