Do you have problems holding back your urge to urinate? Do you fear losing control at the slightest cough, sneeze or even laugh? Incontinence is a widespread problem in our society and it presents a considerable burden for most of those affected and prevents them from participating normally in everyday life. However, many people concerned do not know that there is a simple and uncomplicated technique for an efficient treatment for this condition.
With the EMSELLA chair we offer a modern and non-invasive therapy for the lasting cure of incontinence and pelvic floor weakness in our practice.
What is the EMSELLA chair and how does it work?
The chair, developed by urologists, is an innovative approach to relieving incontinence symptoms of men and women. The electromagnetic waves emitted by the chair stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. The waves cause intensive muscle contractions in the pelvic floor and the muscles are trained much more efficiently than with regular pelvic floor training. Depending on the symptoms, only six to ten treatments are needed to achieve a lasting effect.
In addition to the convenience of an effortless therapy, a remarkable, long-lasting success can be achieved in a short time.
When am I a candidate for the EMSELLA chair?
In principle, EMSELLA treatment is suitable for people of all ages with mild and advanced incontinence problems. Especially during the menopause or after childbirth in women, before or after prostate surgery in men, or in old age for both sexes, EMSELLA therapy is highly recommendable, as the pelvic floor muscles can be strained in those situations and incontinence is a common problem. In addition, the Emsella chair can also be used preventative to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and avoid incontinence.
Women with reduced orgasmic ability and men with erectile dysfunction can also benefit greatly from the treatment with the EMSELLA chair. Here too, targeted training of the pelvic floor is the key to alleviating these complaints, as in both women and men these muscles play a major role in achieving sexual satisfaction.
How exactly does the EMSELLA treatment work?
As this is a non-invasive treatment, you will be very flexible and start your treatment sessions without any preparations. Appointments are usually scheduled twice a week, although this can be deviated from if required. The sessions last about 30 minutes and can be attended fully clothed. The patient only needs to position him/herself on the chair and can even read a book or talk comfortably during the therapy session.
