Kegel exercises for women

The Kegel Exercises were designed by American gynecologist Arnold Kegel in the 1940s in order to strengthen the pelvic floor musculature and improve the urinary incontinence problems of his patients.

WHAT THE KEGEL EXERCISES ARE FOR

Kegel exercises consist of the contraction of the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle, the main muscle of the pelvic floor. The PC is hammock shaped and extends from the pubic bone to the coccyx. Its function is to support the pelvic organs keeping them in correct position. This muscle controls the flow of urine and is responsible for the pleasurable contractions that are experienced during an orgasm.

The Kegel exercises seek to recover the muscular strength of the pelvic floor, and are recommended by midwives and gynecologists especially for pregnant women, for those who need to recover muscle tone after delivery, for those suffering from urinary incontinence and for those who suffer from dysfunctions sexual

An initial problem that many women experience when they try to perform Kegel exercises is that it is not easy to locate the pubococcygeus muscle. A simple exercise to locate this muscle is to voluntarily interrupt the flow of urine. The muscle that allows this contraction is what we are looking for. However, this exercise is not recommended as usual therapy because it can cause urine infections.

Dr. Kegel did not devise these exercises to be developed with an empty vagina. In fact, he designed an original device that pursued the same purpose for which PELVIMAX and PELVIMAX MINI have been created. Over time, however, their original message has been lost and today many women perform their exercises without the help of any additional device. A clinical study shows that the results obtained through the practice of Kegel exercises are more effective when performed with vaginal spheres such as PELVIMAX and PELVIMAX MINI than without the help of a vaginal device (Arvonen T, Fianu-Jonasson A, Tyni-Lenné R).

Many women who practice Kegel exercises without the help of a vaginal device do it incorrectly, because instead of contracting, they push the muscles, thus aggravating an incontinence or prolapse problem. (Waterfield A, Freeman R, Waterfield M, Campbell J).

To illustrate this, imagine a person who wants to get strong and toned biceps. It will be very difficult to achieve your goal if you just do exercises that consist of raising and lowering the arms without more. The results will be much better and faster if you use some type of weight to exercise your biceps. With the pelvic floor muscles the same thing happens. PELVIMAX and PELVIMAX MINI add a weight to the practice of Kegel exercises so that the results of strengthening the pelvic floor musculature are faster and better. In addition, with PELVIMAX and PELVIMAX MINI the practice of Kegel exercises is carried out automatically since when introducing the spheres in the vagina, the pubococcygeus muscle contracts spontaneously and exercises constantly during the period of time in the that the spheres remain inside the vagina.

That is, you will not need to perform any additional exercise beyond striving to prevent spheres from spilling out. It is our recommendation that while the spheres remain inside the vagina, move or walk at a gentle pace, since the weights located within each sphere will produce vibrations that will stimulate, exercise and massage the pelvic area to strengthen the muscles of the perineum.

Thanks to the discretion of the spheres, you can perform the Kegel exercises at any time of the day without anyone noticing anything.
