Your Ultimate Pelvic Floor Training Partner
What are kegels? Developed by Californian Gynaecologist Dr Arnold Kegel, kegels are exercises which are clinically proven as an effective non-surgical treatment for pelvic floor weakness.
That's not to say if you don't have children / are under the age of 50 / can sneeze with a full bladder no problem, you don't need to worry about kegels!
Your pelvic floor is like any other muscle in your body and if you don't use it - you'll lose it! Whether you see the signs or not, your pelvic floor muscles are slowly losing elasticity, tone and strength from the ripe old age of 18; we're not joking!
Given this fact, the chances are you want to know more...
What is the pelvic floor? Why should I give it so much attention?
If you think toning your tummy is a priority, think again!
Your pelvic floor is a band of muscles which stretches from your pubic bone to your coccyx. Acting like a hammock, your pelvic floor muscles support your uterus, bladder and bowel; protecting them from gravity and holding everything in place.
If you leave these muscles to weaken – as they naturally will for all of us (rapidly infact if you have had children or are approaching menopause), you are knowingly putting yourself at risk of leaks when you laugh, cough, sneeze or even worse your pelvic floor muscles could give way completely resulting in pelvic organ prolapse.
By exercising your pelvic floor muscles you’ll start to feel the difference and in turn, understand the importance; you’ll feel more toned (‘down there’), have greater control over your bladder, and benefit from greater intimate sensation… so will your partner for that matter! And as for that stubborn ‘pot belly’… probably also due to a weak pelvic floor; tightening those muscles will help draw your tummy in!
"If you're not exercising them (pelvic floor muscles) the problem is you could start to become incontinent and the problem could get steadily worse... The good news is that if you do exercise them regularly you can prevent it."
Dr. Dawn Harper from TV's Embarassing Bodies
How to do kegels
Stick to a strict routine like this, carried out at least 5 times per day and you can expect to begin to feel the difference in 8-20 weeks.
Do you want faster, guaranteed results?
Give Kegel8 just 12 weeks and get results! The Kegel8 Ultra 20 uses neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles to contract. The mild electrical current is delivered deep into the muscle bed via a vaginal probe for fast, effective toning and strengthening.
"The probe stimulates the muscles - the right muscles in the right way."
Dr. Chris Steele
Don’t be mistaken by thinking that this is a machine for the lazy; the fact of the matter is kegels aren’t easy. In fact, 50% of women don’t know how to perform an effective pelvic floor muscle contraction (and we suspect 90% of women forget or simply can’t find the time to do them – correctly of otherwise!)
Kegel exercises with the Kegel8 electronic pelvic toner have been proven to be more than twice as effective than manual pelvic floor exercises which means you only need exercise once a day. Simply choose one of the 20 pre-set programmes on the medically certified device and let Kegel8 do the work.
Trust us; you’ll be amazed by the results!

Comes complete with an easy exercise plan, created by Amanda Savage, to get results in 12 weeks!
The included exercise plan designed to promote more effective pelvic floor exercises not only ensures the efficacy of Kegels when using the device, it actively encourages the user to practise contracting their muscles alongside the machine, which prepares them for ‘real life’ scenarios when they don’t have access to the machine. In addition, by training the brain to correctly identify the location of the pelvic floor muscles, it will improve the user’s ability to perform independent pelvic floor exercises and help them to ‘hold’ a contraction. This ensures more effective pelvic floor exercise, whether training with or without the device.
It is thought that many women push downwards during independent pelvic floor exercises, which, rather than strengthening the muscles, can lead to further damage. In addition, it can be difficult to locate and target the correct muscles, making exercise less effective. The Kegel8 Ultra 20 V2 Electronic Pelvic Toner removes the guesswork and essentially acts as a Sat-Nav for your pelvic floor muscles, correctly targeting and stimulating a contraction within them using a small electric current. These contractions not only build strength and tone in a matter of weeks, but they also calm the nerves that are responsible for a sensitive bladder! With 20 clinically proven pelvic floor exercise programmes which vary in frequency, intensity and duration, the Ultra 20 is proven to treat a variety of different conditions, including bladder weakness and sensitivity, lack of intimate sensation, pelvic organ prolapses, pelvic pain and more. And, in addition to tailored programmes, the specific condition guides created by Amanda Savage advise exactly how the device should be used to ensure optimum results.
