Swedish intimate care brand Intimina today launches KegelSmart™ personal Kegel trainer - aiming to help women finally conquer Kegel exercises. KegelSmart is the smartest, simplest, and most effective new generation trainer and the first to be FDA cleared.
Women so often hear about the importance and benefits of Kegel exercises, but the problem is that, without guidance, most who try Kegels quickly give up. They don't know for how long they should hold each contraction or how many contractions they should do, and they can't even tell if they're making progress.
Despite the benefits of Kegels encompassing all aspects of intimate health, effective Kegels remain an elusive health goal for almost all women.
KegelSmart is a device that takes the guesswork out of Kegels by acting like a personal trainer, coaching women through a five-minute session with a series of vibrations. Using intelligent touch sensors to register pelvic floor strength during each exercise session, KegelSmart is the only Kegel device that automatically sets an exercise level to match the user's strength. All that's left for the user to do is contract when it vibrates and rest when it stops. There’s no need to count contractions or use a stopwatch, and no distracting app is required.
KegelSmart can bring the benefits of Kegels to the millions of women living with pelvic floor problems:
• 1 in 3 women in the US have pelvic floor disorders like bladder leaks
• These disorders are more prevalent than diabetes
• They can be caused by pregnancy and childbirth, obesity, menopause, and high impact sports
When performed correctly, Kegels prevent and eliminate bladder leaks, recover pelvic floor strength after childbirth, improve vaginal tightness, and even enhance sensations during intimacy.
"KegelSmart's vibration guidance means you can even use it with your eyes closed," said Amandine Pranlas-Descours, Intimina Global Brand Manager. "This kind of simplicity is vital, allowing you to focus on doing Kegels effectively and take five distraction-free minutes for your health. Until now, Kegels have seemed difficult to master, and women give up quickly. KegelSmart will change all that."
KegelSmart has already gained approval from medical experts including Dr. Laurie Bailey Birkholz, Medical Director of Women's Health for Holland Hospital Michigan, who confirms "A device like KegelSmart will finally allow women to get the guidance they need to do Kegels correctly at home, and reap the enormous benefits that these exercises offer. As women make health goals for themselves in 2015, I hope to see Kegels right up at the top."
KegelSmart is made from phthalate-free, medical-grade silicone. It is FDA cleared as a class II medical device. Retailing at $99.95 USD, KegelSmart is available direct via intimina.com from December 10, as well as at medical offices and leading retailers from 2015.
