Pelvic Floor Exercises (Kegel Exercises) are often prescribed to strengthen and tone the neuromuscular tissue of the pelvic floor in the treatment of stress and mixed incontinence. However, these exercises can be very difficult, or even impossible, for some patients to perform correctly. Either because of extreme weakness of their pelvic muscles or difficulty in identifying the correct muscles to exercise, these patients are unable to perform manual pelvic floor exercise therapy.
The Liberty® Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation is a non-invasive treatment which activates natural nerve and muscle mechanisms in the treatment of urinary incontinence without active patient participation.
In women, the treatment consists of intermittent electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor nerve and muscle tissues using a tampon-shaped exerciser inserted into the vagina, or a smaller exerciser inserted into the rectum. The rectal exerciser may also be used in treating male urinary incontinence, usually following a prostate resection procedure. A common treatment schedule is 15 minutes, twice a day, every day or every other day. Following cure or improvement, a program of 2-3 treatments per week should be maintained.
The Liberty® System is for pelvic floor electrostimulation for the treatment of urge, stress, and mixed urinary incontinence in women and men.
