Kegel Exercisers: The Ultimate Guide
Exercising your pelvic floor muscles should be a part of your daily fitness routine, no matter your age. But, did you know that you can make Kegels easier with a Kegel exerciser?
What is a Kegel Exerciser?
A Kegel exerciser is a device that helps you perform those all important pelvic floor exercises. Simple exercisers offer biofeedback to show when you are squeezing the muscles correctly. Advanced exercisers are an even better alternative, such as an electronic Kegel exerciser. An electronic pelvic floor toner can work those pelvic floor muscles for you - all with the push of a button. An electronic device is a must have for those who cannot correctly contract their pelvic floor muscles, or for those who already have a weak pelvic floor (often characterised by little leaks when they cough or sneeze and/or even a prolapse).

How Do Kegel Exercisers Work?
Electronic Kegel exercisers, like the Kegel8 Ultra 20 Electronic Pelvic Toner, harness your body's natural electric signals to stimulate a pelvic floor muscle contraction. A Kegel exerciser works by producing electrical pulses that stimulate the muscles and nerve fibres in your pelvic area. This can be achieved via an internal electrode or external skin electrode pads.
Just like a sat-nav for your pelvic floor muscles, a Kegel exerciser removes all of the guesswork, guaranteeing a successful workout every time!
30% of women push down when exercising their pelvic floor muscles, instead of lifting, which can lead to further damage.
What are the Benefits of Kegel Exercisers?
Kegel exercisers help to take the confusion out of pelvic floor exercise. The Kegel8 electronic toners produce comfortable and safe muscle stimulation that effectively contract the correct muscles in your pelvic floor – strengthening and toning your pelvic floor with the push of a button.
Using a Kegel exerciser ensures an effective and successful workout for your pelvic floor every time. Guaranteeing perfect pelvic floor exercises can improve the speed at which you see a noticeable improvement in the strength and tone of your muscles. A strong and healthy pelvic floor can:
- Improve bladder weakness
- Boost intimate sensations
- Prevent pelvic organ prolapse
- Minimise pelvic pain
Electronic stimulation of your pelvic floor muscles teaches you what an effective Kegel contraction should feel like – so that you can practice your Kegels anytime, anywhere!
