Telephone Survey: Optical Monitoring of Neurologic Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction (NLUTD) Using Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)/Bladder Fullness
This study is a telephone survey to obtain opinions from men and/or women affected with spinal cord injury and neurogenic bladder about their preferences in the design of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) interface to measure bladder function.
Why should you participate in this study?
Led by Principal Investigator Dr. Lynn Stothers, the purpose of this study is to obtain the opinion of men and/or women with spinal cord injury and neurogenic bladder into possible end-user designs for near-infrared interfaces to measure the bladder and pelvic floor muscles. An end-user is a patient with bladder symptoms and a history of neurologic disease.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
- Are 19 years of age or older
- Have urinary symptoms
- Have a history of neurogenic bladder for at least 1 year
You may be ineligible to participate in this study if you:
- Do not have urinary incontinence
- Have a history of neurogenic bladder for less than 1 year.
The study will take place remotely via a 15-minute phone survey.
