Primary outcome met in PeriCoach trial
On 20 November 2020, the medical devices company announced the publication of results from a clinical trial for PeriCoach from The University of New Mexico in an esteemed Journal of Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery. The trial results demonstrated PeriCoach non-inferiority to in-clinic pelvic floor physical therapy.
The primary outcome measurement was met, with the biofeedback group using PeriCoach demonstrating non-inferiority to PFPT based on the quality of life score as measured by the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire short form (ICIQ-SF).
PeriCoach trial in brief
The clinical trial was a randomised single-centre study led by principal investigator Dr Lauren de Winter.
The study was designed to assess whether home biofeedback is non-inferior to standard of care supervised pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) for treating stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women who wish for non-surgical therapy.
The trial included 48 participants and compared PeriCoach personal biofeedback device usage with PFPT. It was aimed to support the implementation of personal biofeedback devices to overcome the issues with patient distance as well as the ability to maintain clinician monitoring.
Chairman of Analytica Dr Michael Monsour commented-
Dr Monsour also added that Analytica had the ambitious objective of forming a system to provide a treatment which is at the same level as that of pelvic floor physiotherapy (PFPT). The publication of the study in an esteemed Journal validates that the Company has met its objective.
