Pelvic Floor Muscles and the Bio Feed Back Kegel Exerciser™
IF YOU CAN’T MEASURE IT – YOU CAN’T MANAGE IT!
Continence depends on properly functioning muscles and nerves. Urinary incontinence (UI) is an involuntary leakage of urine. It is a common and distressing problem having a profound impact on quality of life.
The cost to Australia according to the Deloittes report was $66.67 billion in 2010, or $14,021 per sufferer.
Incontrol is a member of the Continence Foundation of Australia, which recommends ‘Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercise’ also known as ‘Kegel Exercise’ and states that such exercise will manage and/or cure 60%-70% of urinary incontinence.
Over 50% of people do not know how to recognise or exercise the pelvic floor muscles, even after being instructed. Of the minority who do learn to exercise these muscles, most soon cease without instruction and motivation from a third party. This has led to a massive growing crisis, where 4.8 million sufferers will increase to 6.47 million by 2030.
The Kegel Exerciser™ (biofeedback exercise chair) provides the answer to this problem and makes the whole process of exercising these muscles faster, more focused, measured and transparent.
The new ‘Kegel Exerciser™’ is easy to operate with a software program that stores patients’ full information. All results are available anytime for perusal, from initial examination and through all training.
Clinical trials were successfully completed by Samsung and Asan Medical Centres Korea where the chairs are manufactured by Furun Medical Corporation.
