Why should do pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation training?
Pelvifine is an EMS device designed for women who are seeking a fast, effective way to tone and tighten their pelvic floor. Whether you’re battling the disruption of age related pelvic floor weakening or the struggle of regaining tone after childbirth, Komwell can work for you. Komwell doesn’t require great effort or mind numbing concentration to get amazing results. Just insert the ergonomically designed vaginal probe, clip the toning handset to your belt and go about your day! Did you know…? •Pelvic toners have been prescribed to hundreds of thousands of women in the UK. They recognize that squeezing thin air isn’t as effective as squeezing against resistance. The meager dozen or so clenches recommended by most ladies’ magazines are ineffective compared to the hundreds produced by an EMS machine. •A woman can utilize about 40% of her muscles when practicing a regular Kegel, whereas an EMS unit can activate up to 90%. •Women worry about size as much as men do. •Approximately 10 million women in the US are battling urinary incontinence, and for most of them the first treatment suggested by their doctor is Kegel exercises.

Pelvifine cannot be used; while pregnant, if you have been fitted with a metal IUD,

Electrical Stimulation for Urinary Incontinence
Electrical stimulation is used to treat urinary incontinence by sending a mild electric current to nerves in the lower back or the pelvic muscles that are involved in urination.
You may be able to provide electrical stimulation therapy at home using a unit with a vaginal or anal electrode. Timing and duration of therapy varies. For example, your treatment may consist of 12 weeks during which you have 15-minute stimulation sessions twice a day. This kind of stimulation has been used for both urge and stress incontinence.
How vaginal or anal electrical stimulation works is not well understood. The stimulation may make the muscles contract, producing an effect similar to Kegel exercises, which strengthen the muscles by contracting them frequently. The stimulation may also encourage the growth of nerve cells that cause the muscles to contract.
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) has been used for severe urge incontinence or overactive bladder that hasn’t been helped by other treatment. In SNS, the doctor puts an electrical stimulator under your skin above your buttocks. It is attached to electrodes that send pulses to a nerve in your lower back (sacrum). The sacral nerve plays a role in bladder storage and emptying
