Device Description & Principles of Design
Bladder leakage and incontinence are common problems for both women and men, affecting their long-term health. Exercising the pelvic floor muscles is recognised as the way of preventing and treating symptoms of incontinence and pelvic floor weakness.
The perfect PFE is a powered muscle stimulator used for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
It sends a gentle stimulation (similar to your natural nerve impulses) direct to your pelvic floor muscles through an anal probe with stainless steel electrodes or with optional electrode pads. These signals make your pelvic floor muscles contract. If you have forgotten how to contract them, are having trouble getting muscle response, or simply want to bring back the condition of your pelvic floor muscles, the perfect PFE can work them for you to build up their strength and help you to develop your own muscle control. It perfectly complements pelvic floor exercises. The perfect PFE is very easy to use, with four clearly labelled preset training programmes, a fifth programme for chronic pelvic pain and a simple push button control.
The perfect PFE provides relief from conditions such as:
Also, can be used for non-medical purposes to:
Single channel unit to treat symptoms of urinary and faecal incontinence via an anal probe via adjustable depth.
Gentle stimulation with fine tune adjustment settings for different levels of intensity, 1 mA per step.
EMS programmes including STRES, URGE, MIXED and TONE aftercare; and additional TENS programme providing relief from prostatitis pain and pelvic pain.
Unit defaults to 20 minutes’ treatment to ensure the pelvic floor muscles are not over-worked. The user can manually reset this (Continuous, 10, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 mins).
Automatically resets the strength to zero and flashes ‘LEADS’ if the connection comes loose.
Automatic keypad lock prevents any accidental changes in settings.
Clearly shows the operation of the unit and the programme and intensity being used.
Caution should be used if you have suspected or diagnosed epilepsy as electrical stimulation may affect seizure threshold.
Caution Do not permit use by persons unable to understand the instructions or persons with cognitive disabilities, i.e.; Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
