The Optima is a long, slim vaginal probe with 3 isolated hemispherical electrodes to target the posterior, anterior or lateral muscles
The benefit of this is you can select the electrode combination you want to use based on the muscle group(s) you wish to target; the posterior, anterior or lateral muscles. This works via a triple tailed connection; connect the black tail to engage the top electrode, the red tail to engage the middle electrode or the white tail to engage the bottom electrode - you just need to make sure that you always connect two electrodes to ensure you have a complete circuit. This probe is ideal if you suffer from asymmetry (a lack of feeling on one side) or a prolapse. What's more, the gold plated electrodes make this probe ideal for those with a nickel allergy.
*please note this probe is compatible with the Kegel8 Ultra 20 only*
How to use your new Optima Probe
It's easy to get great results from the Optima Probe, and you can use it in different ways, depending on your particular problem.
1. Each of the electrodes of the probe has its own connection. Decide which electrodes you are going to use (see below for tips) then attach a leadwire adaptor to the connection of these electrodes.
- Black connection corresponds to electrode 1 (see diagram below)
- Red connection corresponds to electrode 2 (see diagram below)
- White connection corresponds to electrode 3 (see diagram below)
2. Insert the lead wire into channel A of your Kegel8.
3. Choose which programme that you would like to use, then increase the mAs to a comfortable level.
4. Allow your programme to run, then gently remove the probe.
5. To prolong the life of your probe and prevent infection, clean your probe with Kegel8 Klean, then store in the original bag.
Which electrodes should I use?
For Rear Stimulation (the back of the pelvic floor): Connect electrodes 1 & 2 and insert the probe fully with the electrodes pointing towards the back.
For Front Stimulation (the front of the pelvic floor): Connect electrodes 2 & 3 and insert the probe fully with the electrodes pointing towards the front.
Nerve Damage: if you have nerve damage, or a lack of sensation on one side, you can turn the probe a quarter-turn so the gold electrodes point to the side with the damage and connect electrodes 1 & 2 and insert the probe fully.
Biofeedback: if you are using the probe with a healthcare professional and biofeedback device, use electrode 3 as your reference electrode and ensure the probe is inserted fully into the vagina.
Purchase this product on its own or with 2 lead wires in the pack size variant option when adding to basket.

was wondering if this would be beneficial for me to use?
I have a bit of bladder prolapse and weakness one side. I have had many operations
over the years from hysterectomy in the eighties to para-vaginal repair in 2002 and
a rectopexy in 2012. none of which has "cured" my pelvic floor weakness problems.
so I am hoping to do this myself. My vagina seems more saggy and loose at the
top, so would this probe tighten that area more as the entrance to my vagina is
already getting tighter. So what I guess I am asking is this - have you a probe that
will tighten top as much as bottom of vagina - if so could you advise me please
which one is best.
Thank you for your question. I am pleased that you are taking charge of your pelvic floor and I am pleased that your Kegel8 Pelvic Toner is improving and toning your pelvic floor/vaginal entrance. I really don't know if exercising will help with improving the tone of the upper part of your vagina. I am not sure what type of hysterectomy you have had, but your vaginal canal is made into a vaginal vault when the uterus and cervix is surgically removed and sutures close the top of the vagina. The surgical closing of the top of the vagina sometimes results in a loss of the vaginal tissue's ability to stretch, elongate and contract. There is little or no muscle here, the best thing you can do is keep on with your targeted pelvic floor work-outs and 'plump' up the muscles of the pelvic floor (mainly by the vaginal entrance) - making them stronger but also making them thicker. I often liken a weak pelvic floor to a minute steak - you know, think and floppy, whereas a toned and exercised pelvic flor is like a good fillet, thick, strong and supportive - hope my analogy works for you.
Also remember - a Good Vitamin D3 - essential for helping your muscles get strong and clinically proven to help with pelvic floor exercise.

Hope this is of help to you, keep kegelling!
Thank you for your question.
The three electrodes on the Optima cannot be used simultaneously - only two at a time, and it's great for stimulation of a certain area - however have you thought about the perisize?
The http://www.kegel8.co.uk/perisize-nickel-free-vaginal-probe.html this uses both channels on the Ultra - and is very powerful, directing stimulation through the four electrodes to the back of the vagina. I use this probe and it is really powerful and really transforms the Ultra into something else (very comfortable too!)
Hope this helps
This probe can be used in a number of different ways - it really just depends on the symptoms you are experiencing and your purpose for use.
If you are using Kegel8 for general exercising, strengthening, incontinence, prolapse, etc. then the probe should be inserted with the semi-spherical electrodes facing down so they sit on the muscle bed when inside.
However, if you are suffering nerve damage to one side of the pelvic floor (often a result of pregnancy) then you should insert the probe to have the electrodes facing the area in which you experience lack of sensation i.e. left or right. Once you have treated your nerve damage you should then revert to treating the whole pelvic floor by using the probe with the electrodes facing down as described above.
This probe can be used with any programme on the Ultra.
If you would like to discuss this further with us so we can relate it directly to your circumstances please do give us a call. We are here to help.
Best wishes and good luck.
We have 2 probes that we could recommend to you for helping with your prolapse. If you suffer from a nickel allergy the Perisphera U probe has Gold plated metalised nickel-free electrodes. There are two, large flat electrodes on the base to provide global stimulation, and two ‘saddle-shaped’ electrodes on the side to offer undifferentiated stimulation to the left and right branches of the pubococcygeal muscle. For optimum use, it is advised to use all 4 electrodes, however Perisphera U’s dual channel offers you the choice to use separately when desired.
Please be aware that this probe does not come with any lead wires, you will need to purchase the relevant lead wires to go with your unit.This probe needs two sets of lead wires.
For more information on the Perisphera U please follow the link http://www.kegel8.co.uk/beacmed-perisphera-u-perineal-probe-10090.html
If you don't require the nickel free option, the Pelviline probe is the perfect alternative for prolapse suffers. The Pelviline Probe is wider than most standard probes and is easier to keep in place to make your exercises easy and effective. The stainless steel electrodes offer excellent conductivity and make your exercises easy, comfortable and effective.

I especially like it because it targets all areas, and I don't need to worry whether I've got it in the right place ( whether it's in far enough or not) Also because it says it can deal with the problem of not much sensation on one side.
Thank you for your enquiry.
Can you please clarify which Kegel 8 Unit you have and what exactly your problems are so we are able to advise you on which probe would suit you best?
As i'm sure you can appreciate, not all our customers would like their answers or query's on show to the public, that is why some answers aren't available to view.
