Stimulation of the Tibial nerve Repetitively to Improve Incontinence in Parkinson’s Electronically

Bladder symptoms are common in Parkinson’s disease and have significant impact on quality of life as well as implications for morbidity, contributing to falls and hospital admission. However, the treatment of bladder symptoms can be complicated and better treatments are required. STRIPE is a phase II randomised control trial that aims to determine whether electrical stimulation of the tibial nerve improves overactive bladder symptoms. We aim to recruit 220 individuals with Parkinson’s disease who have symptoms of urgency, nocturia or both in combination and are able to travel to the RICE research centre near Bath.
