Exercise intervention in the management of urinary incontinence in older women in villages in Bangladesh: A cluster randomised trial
The Lancet Global Health Jun 17, 2019
Wagg A, et al. - Via a cluster randomised trial on 3,577 recruited women from 16 pairs of villages in Bangladesh, the researchers intended to evaluate effectiveness of a group intervention that comprised pelvic floor muscle training, mobility exercises, and bladder education over the education alone, and report changes between villages rather than between individual participants. Change in number of leakage episodes between baseline and 24 weeks in some women was observed. No adverse events were observed. Hence, it was concluded that a structured group-exercise intervention had the potential for the management of the urinary incontinence in older women in communities largely outside the reach of pharmaceutical or surgical interventions.Go to Original
