Pelvictrainer is a device that uses biofeedback in the training of the pelvic floor muscles, without any need for internal probes. The patient performs exercises in a sitting position, dressed. Thanks to a sensor built in the device seat the device records the pelvic floor muscles activity while they are tensed, relaxed, or contracting. The device monitor displays a large and clear graph providing data used by the patient to perform the training.
Prophylactic pelvic floor exercises should be performed by everyone, regardless of age, but above all, they are recommended to those over age 40. Weakening of the pelvic floor muscles results in the urine leakage, e.g., during coughing, laughter, running etc. It may also lead to prolapse of reproductive organs, urethra, and loss of sexual sensation in women and men (problems with erection). Another symptom is the lumbar instability and pain, as well as hips and even knees pain. The pelvic floor muscles are directly responsible for overall stability, which is why exercising them is so important also as an effective analgesic measure.
