UW Urology treats pediatric incontinence with video games

The UW Department of Urology, under the direction of Dr. Patrick McKenna, is helping children overcome incontinence without invasive tests and surgery. The Pediatric Urology Biofeedback Program uses a NASA-inspired video game, along with education and medication, to teach patients how to control their muscles better, helping children achieve dryness. The Big Ten Network featured a news story on the program during a recent episode of “Forward Motion,” a 30-minute news magazine program that spotlights the inspiration behind some of UW-Madison’s most innovative research and teaching.
