Preliminary Performance Study of the New TIPI Device in the Prevention of Stress Urinary Incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is most prevalent among women. SUI is characterized by loss of urine from increased abdominal pressures caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, running, lifting or walking. SUI cause women to avoid routine physical activities, thus detracting significantly from their quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of new designs of the TIPI device, a conservative, disposable, treatment for temporary management of SUI.
