Summary

An innovative form of whole body vibration therapy on a treatment bed (Evocell®) to fight against the disabling and isolating symptom of postoperative incontinence in a prostate cancer patient is presented. A supervised program with outpatient active pelvic floor training and a novel form of synchronous high-intensity whole body vibration therapy using the Evocell® device was performed in a patient with postprostatectomy stress urinary incontinence. The patient had previously failed regular pelvic floor exercise. During the intervention, namely a whole body vibration treatment in a lying position on a treatment bed, the patient performed active and passive pelvic floor exercises under professional guidance. Over a period of 6 weeks after starting treatment, the patient regained continence (usage of 1 safety pad). Furthermore, his ability to work increased (return to work) and his ability to attend social activities improved.
