Device Description & Principles of Design
Bladder leakage and incontinence are common problems for both women and men, affecting their long-term health. Exercising the pelvic floor muscles is recognised as the way of preventing and treating symptoms of incontinence and pelvic floor weakness.
The perfect PFE is a powered muscle stimulator used for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
It sends a gentle stimulation (similar to your natural nerve impulses) direct to your pelvic floor muscles through an anal probe with stainless steel electrodes or with optional electrode pads. These signals make your pelvic floor muscles contract. If you have forgotten how to contract them, are having trouble getting muscle response, or simply want to bring back the condition of your pelvic floor muscles, the perfect PFE can work them for you to build up their strength and help you to develop your own muscle control. It perfectly complements pelvic floor exercises. The perfect PFE is very easy to use, with four clearly labelled preset training programs, a fifth program for chronic pelvic pain and a simple push button control.
The perfect PFE provides relief from conditions such as:
- Urinary and faecal incontinence: including stress, urge and mixed types as well as post prostatectomy urinary incontinence in men. Additionally, it may help improve sexual intimacy by toning the pelvic floor muscles.
Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome: unexplained chronic pelvic pain associated with irritative voiding symptoms and/or pain located in the groin, genitalia, or perineum in the absence of pyuria and bacteriuria.
Treatment of erectile dysfunction in men and improvement of pelvic strength.
Also, can be used for non-medical purposes to:
- maintain a healthy bowel movement
- achieve more satisfying erection
- improve rectal sensation for enhanced pleasure
- improve pelvic strength
Single Channel - Single channel unit to treat symptoms of urinary and faecal incontinence via an anal probe via adjustable depth.
Comfortable Stimulation - Gentle stimulation with fine tune adjustment settings for different levels of intensity, 1 mA per step.
5 Preset Programs - EMS programs including STRESS, URGE, MIXED and TONE aftercare; and additional TENS program providing relief from prostatitis pain and pelvic pain.
- Treatment Timer - Unit defaults to 20 minutes’ treatment to ensure the pelvic floor muscles are not over-worked. The user can manually reset this (Continuous, 10, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 mins).
Open Circuit Detection - Automatically resets the strength to zero and flashes ‘LEADS’ if the connection comes loose.
Automatic Keypad Lock - Automatic keypad lock prevents any accidental changes in settings.
Large LCD Screen - Clearly shows the operation of the unit and the program and intensity being used.
