According to the American Urological Association, 25-45% of women older than 30 years old suffer from stress urinary incontinence, and although men are less likely to report it, they too often suffer from incontinence.

It is a well-known fact that urinary incontinence can be caused by many factors, including pelvic relaxation, birth trauma, and sometimes systemic pathology. A large proportion of the treatment available involves medication and surgery.

Many stories show that after one year, more than half of these patients stop using their medication, mainly due to the numerous side effects of the medications prescribed to treat overactive bladder. Botox injections are also used in the lower segment of the bladder and surgical slings are commonly used but require extremely invasive surgery.

Emsella® is a unique electromagnetic chair that uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor. Emsella® is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment designed to treat stress or urge urinary incontinence.

Patients are able to comfortably sit in the chair wearing their regular clothes. It is designed so that the electromagnetic field focuses on targeted tissue in the pelvis. This treatment strengthens pelvic muscles and restores the support of the pelvic organs. The vaginal walls are also tightened, and incontinence has been proven to decrease.

Emsella® is perfect for those who need rehabilitation of weak pelvic muscles and restoration of neuromuscular control – for both male and female urinary incontinence.

Emsella® is the first treatment to offer this kind of technology:

  • Allows patients to painlessly contract pelvic floor muscles
  • Muscles are contracted 11,200 times in a 23-minute session.
  • Typically required to have 2 treatments per week for a 3 week period – a total of 6 treatments
  • Patients are able to relax as they sit on the electromagnetic chair

The best thing about Emsella®? There is no downtime after each session! You can even have your session during a lunch break. Your provider will create a treatment plan for you. Emsella® is the perfect solution for those who are working out and have noticed leaking as they progress.

By choosing Emsella®, they have been able to achieve supramaximal contractions and significantly improve their leakage. Some people see improvement after a single session and results will usually continue to improve over the next few weeks.
