Elvie Kegel Exerciser
Elvie is an award-winning exercise tracker for the pelvic floor. Simply insert vaginally, connect to the app, and track your kegel exercises! As the muscles contract, the on-screen gem lifts, allowing users to see their pelvic floor exercises in real time.
Six unique activities in the app were designed with the help of physiotherapists and experts from Imperial College and University of Oxford. From "Speed," which challenges fast-twitch muscles, to "Hold" which builds endurance, the exercises give the pelvic floor a full workout. Elvie is like a personal trainer-- motivating and correcting as users exercise, and tracking progress over time.
The pelvic floor is a powerful little set of muscles that sits like a hammock between the tailbone and pubic bone. When healthy and toned they prepare your body for pregnancy, childbirth, aging, and impact sport. These muscles also contract rhythmically during orgasm.
Pelvic floor exercise is recommended by health authorities around the world to prevent or treat pelvic floor problems, improving symptoms in over 70% of cases. But many people either don't know how to do them, or do them incorrectly. Biofeedback has been shown to work effectively in helping people learn the exercises, but the technology has only been available in hospitals until recently. Elvie is the smallest Kegel exercise tracker available and the only one to detect whether users are exercising correctly using motion sensors. Force sensors measure the strength of the wearer's squeeze, and the app allows users to visualize each exercise.
The pelvic floor also plays an important role in supporting pregnancy and childbirth. More than half of new mothers experience bladder control and pelvic floor problems, and Elvie can help by preparing the body for pregnancy and speeding up recovery after childbirth.
