- •Multimodal exercise is feasible for sedentary postmenopausal women with urinary incontinence.
- •Multimodal exercise showed promising results in improving symptom severity and quality of life in this population.
- •In this population, the multimodal exercise can be as effective as pelvic floor muscle training alone in improving pelvic floor muscle function.
