What’s new in the world of kegels? This innovative product from Intimina designed to help you keep your pelvic floor in shape. When they contacted me about a post, I was glad to give them THIS floor on Friend for the Ride:
About 20 million American women suffer from incontinence. While bladder leakage can occur at different stages of life, menopausal women are among the most frequently affected. Hormonal changes during menopause often weaken the pelvic muscles, making it easier for incontinence to occur.
Thankfully, the number one doctor recommended treatment is one that can be done in the comfort of your own home – Kegel exercises.
Kegels work your pelvic floor – a group of muscles that support vital internal organs like the bladder, bowel, and uterus and help control their function. Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor and can eliminate leaks.
Knowing that the solution for most women is a simple exercise supported by doctors is comforting; however, the problem is that without guidance most women who try Kegels tend to quickly give up. They don’t know for how long they should hold each contraction or how many contractions to do; they can’t even tell if they’re making progress.
KegelSmart is a device that guides you through a short and effective Kegel workout. Made by Intimina, a Swedish brand, it’s small, discreet, and coated in a soft, medical grade silicone.
KegelSmart is like a mini personal trainer, coaching you through a complete Kegel session with easy-to-follow vibration guidance. The instructions are simple: contract your muscles when you feel the vibrations, and rest when they stop. That’s it. It only takes 5 minutes and you’re finished.
KegelSmart automatically adjusts the exercise level from 1 up to 5—with 5 being the highest—so you’re always working out at the strength level that’s right for you. When you turn on KegelSmart, a little LED light blinks to indicate which level you are on so you can keep track of your progress and keep motivated to reach level five.
Completing the KegelSmart routine once daily will help you achieve total pelvic health. Once you have reached your goals, you can reduce usage to 3-5 times a week to maintain your tone.
Bladder leaks are not something you need to live with; they can be treated. If you are experiencing leaks, talk to your medical practitioner today about Kegel exercises.
Thanks, KegelSmart, for the post and the information. Love that gorgeous shade of pink!
