As Dr. Barber explains, “Women finally have a non-invasive solution for resolving incontinence, improving vaginal dryness and gaining relief from embarrassing pads or liners. The Emsells chair is an effective and simple procedure that takes less than 30 minutes and does not require women to disrobe. The best part is the results are almost instant and there is no downtime. ”
According to Dr. Barber, ‘After childbirth, over 50% of women experience urinary incontinence from coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise. Incontinence can appear after childbirth, as the process of giving birth can weaken the tissues around the bladder. Additionally, over 80% of women suffer from vaginal dryness, sometimes accompanied by itching and/or pain. Less than 25% talk to their doctor about treatment. The Emsella will give the confidence women desire when it comes to pelvic health and sexual function.”
The BTL Emsella is intended to provide entirely non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation of pelvic floor musculature for the purpose of rehabilitation of weak pelvic muscles and restoration of neuromuscular control for the treatment of male and female urinary incontinence.
The BTL Emsella should be considered by women who want to eliminate bladder leakage caused by stress urinary incontinence and improve their sexual function.
