Abstract

Objective: Performing pelvic floor muscle exercises (PFME) may improve patients’ return to urinary continence following radical prostatectomy, however many men find these difficult. This study investigated the use of an animated pelvic floor model to see if it improved men’s understanding of the pelvic floor, and their ability to correctly perform a pelvic floor contraction.
