The WOMEN-UP project, funded by the European Comission, is developing a new self-managed
home treatment for stress and mixed urinary incontinence that will be overseen remotely by a
therapist. We need volunteers for our clinical testings. Are you willing to step in?
Any involuntary leakage of urine is considered incontinence. UI is a common disease which affects
population of all ages in more or less severity. It impairs the quality of life of the affected and their
families. Besides, it increases costs on health and social care services. A European survey found a
prevalence of UI in 35% of women of between 18 and 99 years old. Most of the affected women
are untreated due to lack of awareness of clinical treatments and/or sociocultural barriers.
All you need to do to contribute is answer a brief survey and if you comply with the profile we
are looking for, your nearest health center will contact you.
