Key product: Aquaflex Pelvic Exercise Cones 

Pelvic floor exercises help to treat and prevent stress incontinence and are important for women to perform following childbirth. Pelvic floor exercises are one of the first treatment options for people suffering with stress incontinence. Stress incontinence is most common in older women and following childbirth however women who are obese are also at high risk of developing stress incontinence. We will look at ways to exercise the pelvic floor muscles and also the range of pelvic floor exercisers that are available including the Aquaflex Cones.

The Pelvic Floor muscles wrap around the bottom of the bladder and rectum which can become weakened in older women, women who have recently given birth and obesity. Weak pelvic floor muscles can result in stress incontinence where urine leaks during the day, for example when the person coughs, sneezes or during exercise. Performing pelvic floor exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor often cures stress incontinence. If pelvic floor exercises are performed after child birth, stress incontinence can be prevented from developing in later life.

There are a number of different ways to exercise the pelvic floor from performing your own exercises by tightening you pelvic floor muscles to using pelvic floor exercisers like the Aquaflex cones. Pelvic floor exercisers such as the Kegel 8 Pelvic Floor Exerciser can be in the form of an electrical device using electrical stimulation or vaginal cones like the Aquaflex Cones Pelvic Floor Exerciser. The Aquaflex Pelvic Exercise Cones are a clinically proven pelvic floor exercise system. Aquaflex Cones are weighted vaginal cones which are held in place, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise Cones are specially designed to improve pelvic floor muscle tone and restore bladder control. Used for 20 minutes a day the Aquaflex Cones can improve the strength of the pelvic floor muscles in just 12 weeks.

The Pelvic Floor Educator is an extremely simple and effective solution for improving the pelvic floor. The Educator is designed to educate the user into performing the correct pelvic floor exercises. The Pelvic Floor Educator comes with an external part which acts as a visual indicator to show if the pelvic floor exercises are being performed correctly. The Pelvic Floor Educator is an excellent training item for people with a weak pelvic floor as it trains the user into strengthening the correct pelvic floor muscles.

The Kegel 8 Ultra Pelvic Floor Exerciser is an electrical device which has been designed to automatically perform the squeeze and release of pelvic floor exercises. The Kegel 8 Ultra Pelvic Exerciser send signals to your pelvic floor muscles which make the muscles flex and contract as if they were being exercised normally. The Kegel 8 Ultra is designed to accurately target the muscles from deep within the pelvic floor. Within the Kegel Exerciser range there is also the Kegel 8 Tight and Tone Plus Pelvic Floor Exerciser which is a fast and accurate way to restore pelvic health and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. The Kegel 8 Tight and Tone Plus comes with a wider probe which is ideal for women who have had children and feel that their vaginal muscles are not as tight as they should be.
