Our pelvic floor trainers with gold coated probes
What are the benefits of pelvic floor training?
It doesn't matter if after pregnancy or in old age - pelvic floor training is very important for both, men and women. Strong pelvic floor muscles keep our organs together, support our locomotor system and are the base of the taboo subject no. 1: incontinence.
Beside that, the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles can help men with erectile dysfunction and increase their potency in the long-term. Pelvic floor trainers allow you to stimulate the pelvic floor gently and effectively by only pushing “one button”. Therefore they are a useful training assistance for pelvic floor exercises.
Pelvic floor trainers can help you with the following problems and produce relief:
- Stress incontinence: Stress incontinence affects women more than men. Depending on the severity level, physical activities or even at rest leads to involuntary urination. Coughing, sneezing or lifting heavy weights (first degree) increases the pressure in the abdomen, which leads to involuntary urination in people suffering from stress incontinence. In the 2nd degree even light physical activities like walking and climbing stairs and in the 3rd degree even Laying and Standing can lead to involuntary urination.
- Urge incontinence: Is often called overactive or weak bladder. If there is an urge of urination, the pelvic floor muscles are too weak to control the urine output and the person has to visit the restroom immediately. The control of the bladder is impaired.
- Fecal incontinence: Fecal incontinence is often caused by impairment of the sphincter, for example after a surgery of the sphincter, following the birth with perineal tear or age-related reduction of muscle mass. Also for this case you can differ between various severity levels, from involuntary escape of bowel gases (1st degree) to involuntary escape from stool (3rd degree). If fecal incontinence is present, urinary incontinence often occurs as well.
- Increase in potency: There is a connection between potency and the pelvic floor muscles, which most men don’t know. The pelvic floor muscles are necessary to get an, for the sexual act sufficient, erection which lasts long enough. Due to regular pelvic floor training the risk of erectile dysfunction can be reduced and the potency can be increased.

How does a pelvic floor trainer work?
The pelvic floor training with EMS strengthen the muscles with an anal or vaginal probe. The probes are produced with harmless materials for easy cleaning. For an easy application, contact gel is included in our set. The different programs of the EMS machine train your pelvic floor muscles gently and have no side effects, if applied correctly. A pelvic floor trainers work like a muscle stimulator, the muscles will be contracted and trained due to electrical impulses.
An electrical pelvic floor trainer lets you train passively, the machine does all the work. This is a big advantage compared to manual pelvic floor exercises or pro-active pelvic floor trainers. In everyday life the pelvic floor most likely won’t be recognized. Because of that most people haven’t a sense for this group of muscles and can’t contract them in a targeted way.

Here is what you should pay attention to when exercising with a pelvic floor trainer
Even if the application of a pelvic floor trainer is without side effects, if applied correctly, there are a few things you should be aware of to ensure optimal use. This includes hints for your safety, for example to switch off the device before insertion or pulling out the probe. The metallic contacts of our probes can contain nickel, so if you have a nickel allergy, you can use our pelvic floor trainer sets with gold coated probes.
Additional hints, which you should note:
- - Start with a low current and increase the intensity only slowly. The pelvic floor trainers work on the principle of contraction and then relaxation of the muscles, which means that after a phase of electrical impulse delivery to contract the pelvic floor muscles, there is a rest period of a few seconds without delivery of current impulses. If the intensity of the impulse was too low for you, increase the intensity only slightly and in small steps during the contraction to get a better feel for it.
- - Make sure that sufficient contact gel is applied to the probe to ensure optimal conductivity.
- - Alternate the programs regularly to avoid a familiarization effect.
- - In the beginning, make sure that the application should not last longer than 15 minutes. After a familiarization period or on the advice of your doctor, you can then increase the application duration.
- - If you use a probe, make sure to pull it out directly at the shaft after use. This will help you avoid breaking the cable.
