Effectiveness of a new biofeedback software program

Are you interested in participating in a research study that is investigating the effectiveness of a new biofeedback software program?

The UNC Center for Functional GI and Motility Disorders is evaluating a novel software program to be adopted for use in biofeedback therapy for the treatment of accidental bowel leakage.  We are currently recruiting individuals who are experiencing episodes of accidental bowel leakage to participate in this research study.

Participation includes having a catheter inserted into the rectum to test software that will be used for a new anal rectal manometry and biofeedback device.  No clinical or diagnostic tests or therapies will be done.

Participants will be paid $100.00 for completion of the research study, which will last approximately one hour.
