Why pelvic floor exercise matters
The pelvic floor is a very important set of muscles, but a lot of people are fairly uneducated about them. They sit like a hammock between your tailbone and pubic bone. When healthy and toned they protect your body against the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, ageing menopause, impact sport and much, much more. If your pelvic floor muscles do become weakened or damaged it can lead to bladder and bowel incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse and even a lack of intimate sensation. Despite what many tv adverts may suggest, you don’t have to accept the risk of leaks every time you cough, sneeze or laugh.
Pelvic floor exercises, or Kegels, are commonly recommended by experts to prevent or treat pelvic floor problems which you can do anytime by squeezing the muscles, however, the muscles are hidden which makes it difficult to know whether you are exercising them correctly as there is no indication that you are doing the right thing. That’s where Elvie comes in, it is your really personal trainer…
Elvie is the award-winning manual pelvic floor exerciser which makes workouts easy and fun. Simply place the small device inside, connect it to the app and watch the gem which indicates how your muscles are working. The app includes six unique games that have been designed with the help of physiotherapists and experts from Imperial College and University of Oxford. From Speed, which challenges your fast-twitch muscles, to Hold which builds endurance, the 6 different exercises give your pelvic floor a complete workout. Elvie is your most personal trainer - motivating and correcting as you exercise, and tracking your progress over time, actually making it enjoyable as your try to beat your old scores. The exercises can be set to 4 different difficulty levels so whether you are a total beginner, or a Kegel queen the Elvie is great for you.
Why Choose Elvie, the award-winning Kegel exercise tracker?
Elvie is the smallest manual Kegel exerciser available and the only one to detect if you are exercising correctly using motion sense technology. The force sensors measure the strength of your squeeze and connects to the app allowing you to see each time exercise and how effective it is. This addresses one of main reasons women fail to do their Kegels, the inability to see if they are doing them properly. Because the app records the results of each workout you can easily see the progress you are making which will help to keep you focused on the path to gaining a stronger and healthier pelvic floor.
Elvie is made with medical grade silicone and is rubber and latex free. It is 100% waterproof and has passed rigorous testing. More than 150 women were consulted during the design process and over 98% of women found the shape comfortable and easy to use. It even comes with an optional cover for custom sizing. The small and sleek design of your Elvie and its charging case makes it super discrete, perfect for taking on your travels.
Can Elvie be used during pregnancy?
You can use Elvie throughout pregnancy as long as you aren’t suffering from any complications. Every pregnancy is unique so if you are unsure it is always best to consult your qualified medical professional before use. We recommend waiting until six weeks after birth before resuming use of your Elvie.
Can I use Elvie with an IUD?
Yes, you can use Elvie with an IUD (or coil). The tail of Elvie is the part that connects to your device, and this remains on the outside. Elvie is completely covered in medical grade silicone with no exposed parts and so is safe to use with the coil.
Is Elvie just for women who have had children?
No, there are numerous factors that can affect the strength of your pelvic floor muscles including pelvic surgery, menopause, high impact exercise, smoking and much more. If you are suffering from any of the symptoms listed above, then Elvie may be for you!
