Your Pelvic Floor Muscles Are Essential

1. Control of urinary continence
2. Management of bowel incontinence
3. Support to hold pelvic organs
4. Enhancement of sexual function
5. Stabilization of core and lower back

1/3 of Women Suffer From Pelvic Floor Disorders

These disorders often arise from weakened pelvic floor muscles and can manifest in various symptoms:


The pelvic floor muscles naturally contract to close the urethra and rectum, and they voluntarily relax during urination and bowel movements. 

However, when these muscles weaken, they can no longer maintain a tight seal around the urethra and rectum, resulting in uncontrollable leakage or urgency for both urine and stool.

There are different types of incontinence:

Stress Incontinence - This type involves the involuntary leakage of urine when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or engaging in activities like running or jumping.

Urge Incontinence - It's characterized by a sudden, intense urge to urinate, often requiring an immediate search for a restroom.

Mixed Incontinence -  This condition combines urine leaks that can occur both with physical activity and the urgency to urinate.

Lower Back Pain

A weakened pelvic floor can contribute to lower back pain. These muscles play a crucial role in providing core support. When they lose their tone, it can result in an imbalance and heightened tension in the lower back, ultimately leading to discomfort and pain.

The Hidden Challenge of Pelvic Floor Strengthening

Strengthening pelvic floor muscles might sound simple, but it can actually be quite difficult. A major challenge is identifying and isolating these muscles. Unlike the more visible muscles in the arms or legs, pelvic floor muscles are concealed within the body, making it hard to feel or detect their contractions.

Improper Exercises Can Aggravate Symptoms

Many people are unaware of the correct techniques for pelvic floor training, which often leads to improper practices like incorrect squatting or using the "stop pee" method. These incorrect methods can actually worsen symptoms. Proper training is crucial, as statistics show that one in four women perform Kegel exercises incorrectly, potentially exacerbating pelvic floor issues. It's essential to be well-informed and practice these exercises correctly.

Pelvic Floor Weakness Can Be Overcome

Contrary to common belief, the weakening of pelvic floor muscles is not an unavoidable fate. By practicing pelvic floor exercises and utilizing innovative solutions with biofeedback technology like Perifit, you can effectively strengthen this area, leading to improved overall well-being and a better quality of life.

Effectively strengthen pelvic floor muscles with biofeedback

Biofeedback is a modern technology that uses electronic sensors to provide real-time information about muscle activity. In the context of pelvic floor strengthening, biofeedback enables pelvic muscle activity to be visualized and understood.

In a biofeedback device, such as Perifit, force sensors detect contractions and relaxations of the pelvic floor muscles. This data is then transmitted to a mobile app or another device, allowing the user to see in real time the intensity and duration of their muscle contractions. This method not only allows users to monitor whether they are targeting the right muscles, but also helps to tracks progress over time.

Proven Reasearch and Backed by Science

Cut-out the guesswork with targeted exercises

One of the main strengths of biofeedback is its ability to eliminate uncertainty in pelvic floor training. Without feedback, only 50% of women perform Kegels correctly, while 1/4 risk unintentional harm. Biofeedback offers an undeniable advantage by providing instant visual confirmation of muscle engagement. This enables more targeted and effective exercises.

Backed by research

A recent meta-analysis of pelvic floor muscle training programs found a larger treatment effect in programs that integrated biofeedback than in programs that didn't.Italso found that training with equipment or accessories was more effective than unassisted Kegel training.

Best alternative to traditional methods

Compared with traditional methods such as unassisted Kegel exercises or Pilates, biofeedback stands out for its precision and interactivity. It offers a more engaging and personalized experience, which can increase motivation and adherence to a regular exercise program.

In summary, biofeedback represents a significant advance in pelvic floor rehabilitation, offering a precise, scientifically validated method tailored to individual needs.
