World Continence Week 17th – 23rd June
Does bladder leakage stop you from doing the things you love?
Well you certainly aren’t alone, over 5 million Australians have some form of incontinence.
It’s World Continence Week on 17th – 23rd June and an opportune time to tell you all about the “Wave Chair” and the fantastic results our patients are experiencing.
This breakthrough technology builds strength and endurance back into the pelvic floor muscles. Recuperation can be as simple as sitting in a chair, fully clothed.
What is the ‘wave chair’?
The Wave Brilliance Pelvic Floor Therapy System, aka Wave Chair is a non-surgical therapy for the treatment of stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence. For patients whose difficulties stem from a weakening of their pelvic floor muscles, Wave Brilliance can offer unique therapeutic benefits. Unlike other therapy options the Wave Chair exercises all the muscles in the pelvic floor to rebuild strength and endurance and restore bladder and bowel control. The ‘wave chair’ embraces ExMI™ Pelvic Floor Therapy System, a non-surgical therapy for the treatment of stress, urge and mixed incontinence, prolapse and pelvic pain.
How does it work?
The process is a bit like pelvic floor exercises or Kegel for the pelvic floor. While conventional pelvic floor exercise can help to restore continence, patients often perform the exercises incorrectly, incompletely, or inconsistently. With ExMI™, the system produces highly focused pulsed magnetic fields and performs the exercises for the patient in a more complete and effective manner than the patient could do on their own. No active participation by the patient is required.
What happens on the ‘wave chair’?
During treatment, a patient sits fully clothed in a specially designed chair that has the ExMI technology embedded in the seat. The treatment is painless and takes approximately 20 minutes, involving a series of sessions, typically performed twice a week. A complete course of treatment may take eight weeks or more, depending on the condition of the pelvic floor muscles when therapy is started.
What are the results?
Studies have shown that rebuilding the pelvic floor muscles with ExMI is effective in helping patients regain continence. In addition, patients treated with ExMI have reported significant improvements in their quality of life.
