What is Emsella?
Emsella uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to generate a series of supramaximal muscle contractions in the pelvic floor muscles. These contractions are more powerful than the voluntary muscular contractions that occur during exercise and do not allow for a relaxation period.
During Emsella, these contractions strengthen the pelvic floor and retrain those muscles to help relieve both stress and urge incontinence. Strong pelvic floor muscles support your pelvic organs and help you retain control over your bladder and bowels.
The benefits of a healthy, strong pelvic floor cannot be understated. If left untreated, incontinence can cause daily discomfort and diminish your quality of life. Emsella strengthens pelvic floor muscles, thereby reducing stress and urge incontinence—no more worrying about incidents when sneezes or laughter catch you off guard. Emsella gives you the confidence to live your best life.
