Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of incontinence episodes from baseline to follow-up greater for device arm than sham arm [ Time Frame: One week after final treatment visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Significant increase in the percentage of patients reporting a reduction in number of incontinence episodes per day for the investigational device vs. sham

  • No Serious Adverse Events or Unanticipated Adverse Device Effects [ Time Frame: First treatment through follow-up (one week after last treatment) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Freedom from Serious Adverse Events or Unanticipated Adverse Device Effects related to procedure and/or investigational device through follow-up
