The Elise Pelvic Floor Exerciser is simple and easy to use. It’s a safe, drug-free, non-surgical solution to treat stress incontinence. The Elise Pelvic Floor Exerciser can provide freedom from the use of incontinence pads and can help sufferers return to a normal lifestyle.
How does it work?
The Elise sends a gentle stimulation to your pelvic floor through a vaginal probe, working your pelvic floor muscle for you and enabling you to develop your own muscle control. Along with pelvic floor exercises, the Elise gently strengthens and tones your pelvic floor muscle which in-turn improves the symptoms of incontinence (bladder weakness). Sessions last for just 20 minutes a day and should be used for a period of 12 weeks. Many see improvements within as little as 3-4 weeks.
The Elise provides relief from 3 forms of incontinence:
Stress Incontinence describes the involuntary leakage of urine when a person coughs, sneezes, strains or makes sudden movements. It is particularly common in women and occurs when the bladder neck and the other mechanisms that act to hold urine in the bladder are not working properly.
Urge Incontinence describes an overactive bladder. A person may experience a strong and sudden urge to go to the toilet but are not always able to hold on, or have to go so frequently that it becomes inconvenient.
Mixed Incontinence is a combination of both Stress and Urge Incontinence.
The Elise can also be used with an anal probe for the improvement of symptoms of bladder weakness in men, and of fecal incontinence (please contact us for more information).
