A randomized single blinded pre-post test evaluation of Pelviva® versus unsupervised pelvic floor muscle exercises, was conducted by Wellcome Trust Research Centre, Manchester.

Primary outcome:

Using a condition specific quality of life questionnaire (ICIQ-UI) (clinical trial standard for category) women using Pelviva® for 12 weeks experienced a four times greater reduction in the impact that bladder leaks had on their lives when compared to women doing unsupervised Pelvic Floor muscle exercises

Secondary outcome:

Using the patient global impression of severity and improvement (PGIS/PGII) scale 84% of women, using Pelviva reported improved bladder control


Pelviva plus unsupervised exercise produced a significant better outcome than unsupervised exercise alone.

Women found Pelviva comfortable, easy to use and experienced no adverse events

Post-marketing surveillance

Femeda is committed to an enhanced post market clinical evaluation programme for Pelviva®.

Both a post market Clinical Study and a Longitudinal Human Factors Study are planned post launch in Quarter 2 2018. These are designed to deliver enhanced claims for professional marketing and public relations development.
