Telephone Survey: Optical Monitoring of Neurologic Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction (NLUTD) Using Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)/Pelvic Floor Muscle
This study is a survey to obtain opinions from women affected with neurogenic bladder about their preferences in the design of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) interfaces (minimally invasive methods to quantify the function of the bladder and pelvic floor).
Why should you participate in this study?
Led by Principal Investigator Dr. Lynn Stothers, researchers at the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre are investigating the effects of exercise on pelvic floor muscle fitness in women with and without spinal cord injury using light technology to monitor muscle fitness.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
- Are female
- Are 19 years of age or older
- Have urinary incontinence
- 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.
