Our Expert View
Incontinence is a common problem for women, affecting their long term quality of life. Exercising the pelvic floor muscle is recognised as a way of preventing and treating symptoms of incontinence.
However many women are unable to perform pelvic floor exercises effectively. Elise is designed to help by building the muscle strength and allows you learn how to control your muscles.
Stimulation strength gradually increases to make exercise comfortable, while a safety override feature ensures you are not overworked. Like many forms of exercise it may take some weeks to notice the benefit.
Elise is a discreet and compact pelvic floor exerciser designed for home use. It has programmes for Stress, Urge and Mixed incontinence as well as sexual wellbeing. These programmes use clinically proven parameters and is suitable for women of all ages.

why it works
An internal probe is inserted into the vagina and operated using a hand-held Elise control unit.
The stimulator will exercise the pelvic floor muscle for you and users as they get used to the sensation should join in by contracting their pelvic floor muscles at the same time as the stimulation is felt to help re-educate the muscles in question.
Evidence suggests that optimum usage levels are 15 to 30 minutes daily we recommend you gradually build up to this level so as not to over exert the muscles.
