You may remember I posted on here a few weeks ago asking for volunteers to be interviewed as part of a new product innovation programme which we're undertaking for a leading provider of continence and bowel care solutions.
Firstly, thank you to the many of you who got in touch and took part.
We're now interested in hearing the thoughts of more people and are looking for volunteers who would be willing to fill in an anonymous, on-line survey about their use of continence and / or bowel care products. As before, we will pay each respondent a fee by way of a "thank you".
We want to identify breakthrough solutions to bring about a major positive change in lifestyle for those living with SCI or spina bifida. Completing this survey is one way you can get your needs for continence and bowel care in front of the manufacturers. Through previous research like this, Strategyn created one of the most successful medical devices ever. We hope to repeat that success here.
Details are as follows:
The survey is open to anyone over 16 in the UK or US and who lives with a spinal cord injury or spina bifida.
We will pay each respondent a fee of Â£20 (or $40 if you live in the US) for a completed survey. Additionally, all names of respondents will be entered into a draw to win an extra Â£100 (or $200). There will be a draw for each user group so there are 2 cash prizes of Â£100 ($200) to be won!
To qualify for the survey you must use one of the following solutions for continence or bowel care (if you donâ€™t meet these criteria but know someone who does, please pass this message on to them).
Intermittent or indwelling catheters
Urine drainage bags (leg or night bags)
Bowel management products / solutions (anal plugs, anal irrigation systems, fecal collection bags, enemas, laxatives, suppositories, manual bowel stimulation)
If you think you would be interested in completing this survey and helping to develop the next generation of continence and bowel care products, please send me an email at:
In your email, please state whether you are from the UK or US and which user group (SCI or spina bifida) you belong to.
We'll then send you details of the survey in the coming days. Depending on which products you use, the survey will take 30-45 minutes to complete. You can complete this in one go or save it and return to it at a later time.
Hope to hear from you soon!
