What is PelviPower Magnetic therapy?
THE PELVIPOWER™ MAGNETIC FIELD TRAINER IS BASED ON THE TECHNOLOGY KNOWN REPETITIVE PERIPHERAL MUSCLE STIMULATION”.
The chair has a magnetic coil and which gives effective short bursts of repetitive magnetic impulses. It has been shown to create lasting changes, enhancing personal awareness of individual muscle functions and the ability to control and coordinate them. The impulses are generated in such a way that the corresponding muscles contract, stay contracted for a certain period of time and then relax again for a certain period of time. Regular exposure to these impulses not only strengthens the muscles of the pelvic floor and surrounding muscles, but also significantly improves coordination over the entire muscular system.
The training has the same amazing effect as traditional pelvic floor exercises when it comes to strengthening the pelvic floor (if you are doing them ‘correctly’ 3-4 x daily!). However, the significant difference is that the training does not involve any physical exertion, and that it has a stronger and more targeted effect than with “normal” training. Studies also suggest the effect lasts much longer than the traditional exercises.
DURATION AND NUMBER OF TRAINING SESSIONS
PelviPower training session are 15 minutes long. The best results are achieved in 10 to 20 therapy sessions. Patients will generally be able to notice a change in their muscle strength after the third treatment. Muscles take a while to strengthen, just as they would from ‘normal’ exercise. Nobody becomes an athlete overnight. Athletic performance is the result of consistent training.
Apart from occasional muscle aches and stiffness during the initial stages of treatment, there are no known side effects. Absolute contraindications are cardiac pacemakers and other electronic implants, pregnancy, epilepsy, recent surgery/radiation therapy and foreign bodies containing iron.
