Lift & Squeeze: Comparing Laselle and KegelSmart Pelvic Floor Trainers

Dec 052017
 

Laselle_VS_KegelSmartSure, we know how important pelvic floor strength is for our overall health, but do any of us actually know if we’re doing them right?  

Enter Kegel exercisers – handly little devices that range from beautifully simple to astoundingly high tech (while always easy to use). We’ve got 2 types of products – Laselle and KegelSmart 0 which can help you kick your Kegel exercises into high gear, so let’s check out their respective pros and cons to pick which is perfect for you!

 

Laselle Weighted Exercisers

Laselle Weighted Exercisers are a deceptively simple vaginal weight that look a little bit like a mini ball and chain – though they’ll do anything but hold you back!

Coated in 100% medical grade silicone, each ball contains a small weighted ball in its inner core that moves and swirls with movement. Not only does this inner weight  offer resistance to efficiently strengthen your muscles but also confirms its correct placement.  There are different weight options which means you can work at your own pace as you build strength.

There are several ways to do pelvic floor strength exercises with Laselle which we explain further on our blog, but the key take away here is that these vaginal weights help add intensity to the Kegel squeeze and hold exercises you’re already familiar with.

Laselle is best for:  People who are confident they know how to do Kegel exercises and want to add more resistance.

 

KegelSmart

Looking much more like a bullet vibe than a pelvic floor trainer, we refer to KegelSmart as ‘a smarter way to Kegel’ and it truly is. It is designed with special pressure sensitive plates under its silicone coating that can actually sense how hard your muscles are squeezing around it.

Using this information, KegelSmart creates a personalized training program just for you by setting ‘workout routines’ and recording your progress – all you have to do is insert, contract when it vibrates and relax when it stops.

KegelSmart is a great for: Anyone who is never sure whether they’re doing their Kegel exercises the right way or want feedback on their progress.
