The aim of this study was to assess preliminary effects of a program of transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation (TPTNS) on lower urinary tract symptoms and number of episodes of urinary and fecal incontinence in older adults in residential care homes and the feasibility of a full-scale randomized trial. A pilot randomized single-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted in seven residential care homes and 3 sheltered accommodation complexes in the United Kingdom.
