Efficacy of Top Flat Magnetic Stimulation Technology for Female Stress and Urge Urinary Incontinence: A Clinical Evaluation

Andrea Biondo, Pablo Gonzalez Isaza, Irene Fusco


Background: Urinary incontinence (UI) is a popular problem with a broad range of severities and etiology. This study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of a device based on top flat magnetic stimulation to manage women affected by urge urinary incontinence (UUI) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Methods: Eighty-one female patients (35 patients who reported SUI symptoms and 46 patients who reported UUI symptoms) underwent a total of eight treatments sessions performed twice a week for 4 consecutive weeks, for 28 min. Immediately before each treatment and up to 3 months of follow-up, two questionnaires (Incontinence Impact Questionnaire-Short Form (IIQ-7) and Incontinence Questionnaire Overactive Bladder Module (ICIQ-OAB)) were used.

Results: ICIQ-OABs average score significantly decreased (P < 0.05) from 10.54 3.03 at baseline to 5.45 2.24 at 3 months follow-up. IIQ-7s average score significantly decreased (P < 0.05) from 15.53 5.62 at baseline to 6.76 3.10 at 3 months follow-up.

Conclusions: For all women examined, protocols used led to a decrease of SUI/UUI complaints, achieving good results and improving patients quality of life (QOL) without risk.
