BTL Emsella Chair – For Pelvic Floor Issues, Bladder Control & Incontinence
The Emsella chair, created by the award- winning medical and aesthetics manufacturer BTL, aims to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles again and give patients back control of their bladder. It is a completely painless, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment used to improve the symptoms of incontinence and can be carried out in less than half an hour per session. Unlike many non-surgical incontinence treatments, it is completely non-invasive and can be carried out fully clothed.
The Emsella chair uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) frequencies to independently target the pelvic floor muscles and muscles at the neck of the bladder. This causes the muscles to contract and release, in the same way standard kegel exercises do. However, with the Emsella chair, the muscles are given a workout equivalent to 11,000 kegel exercises per treatment session!
BTL Emsella is so effective as it contracts the pelvic floor muscles to what is called the supramaximal level. As the treatment targets the pelvic floor muscles directly, and doesn’t require neuromuscular control, they can contract far more than they would consciously, creating the highly effective results that we see from our patients that simply can’t be achieved using manual kegel exercises alone.
The Emsella treatment also triggers the body’s natural production processes to create new muscle fibres and proteins, which further strengthens and tones the pelvic floor and bladder muscles, and improves the neuromuscular links between the brain and the bladder, which helps significantly to treat the symptoms of urge incontinence.
A course of 4-6 treatments are usually recommended to see optimum results, and some patients experience highly effective results from as soon as the first treatment.
