About Us

A new interactive evidence visualization on pelvic floor muscle training, or PFMT, is now available on the PCORI website. This visual evidence synthesis tool uses data from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to assess the efficacy of PFMT to treat urinary incontinence (UI). This evidence visualization stemmed from a PCORI-funded 2018 AHRQ systematic review on nonsurgical treatments for urinary incontinence. Pelvic floor exercises were also highlighted as an effective nonsurgical treatment for UI in PCORI's 2019 Evidence Updates for Women and Clinicians.
