Pelvipower Chair – Training for a Stronger Pelvic Floor

Pelvipower chair treatment
PelviPower Chair Summary
Pelvipower Chair is a treatment chair that uses electromagnetic field technology to create RPMS (Repetitive Peripheral Muscle Stimulation) to exercise the pelvic floor and surrounding muscles. It’s used to strengthen the pelvic floor to improve urinary incontinence, back pain and erectile dysfunction. These are pelvic floor problems associated with childbirth and ageing.


Procedure Time
Your Pelvic Health Physiotherapist will tailor a plan for you. A treatment takes 15 minutes and you will need about 8-12 sessions scheduled a week apart.

Result Effect
Many patients will experience a notable difference after one session the results will normally continue to improve over the next few weeks.

Result Duration 
The majority of patients will need four treatment sessions per year to maintain the results.

Anaesthetic
None required.

Back to Work
You can resume normal activity immediately following treatment.

Sensitivity 
None.

Risks and Complications
There’s a possibility of mild cramping for up to 24-48 hours.

Magnetic Field Therapy (MFT)
The PelviPower magnetic field therapy (MFT) uses a repetitive impulse to stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor and the surrounding muscles. It is intended for people who cannot reliably complete conventional training on their own or for those who prefer a rapid and simple method.

 

Biofeedback Training (BFT)
The biofeedback trainer supports the patient’s individual training. An integrated sensor detects the activity of the pelvic floor muscles. This enables the visualisation of muscle movement on a monitor during training. This bio-feedback increases the effectiveness of the training and self-perception of the pelvic floor.

“Magnetic field stimulation is extremely well suited to strengthening the body core. It provides an excellent deeply penetrating effect for an effective neuromuscular training.”
