URApp- a new smartphone app to aid adherence to bladder training in young people with urinary incontinence and urgency
A research team at the University of Bristol has developed a smartphone app (URApp) to aid adherence to bladder training in young people (aged 10-19 years) with urinary incontinence and urgency. URApp allows users to set their daily drinking goal; provides discreet reminders and a diary to help establish a regular schedule of drinking and toilet visits, and gives personalised feedback to help users track their progress towards their drinking goals.
