Urinary Incontinence/ Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Do You Have A Weak Bladder?
Now There is HOPE with Incontinence and Erectile Dysfunction
Bladder leakage is not your fault… and you shouldn’t have to suffer any more. Pelvic Floor rehabilitation using Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation (high powered magnetic frequency) is FDA approved for treatment of Urinary Incontinence and helps with Erectile Dysfunction by stimulating and rehabilitating the nervous system that supports and innervates the muscles of the pelvic floor.
✓ No Drugs… No Surgery… No Invasive Probes
✓ No more bouncing around to numerous doctors with no answers… AND…..
✓ No more Humiliation!
Recuperation can be as simple as sitting in a chair, fully clothed. The pelvic floor controls your urinary, bowel & sexual functions yet these muscles are your most neglected.
This breakthrough technology builds strength and endurance back into the pelvic floor muscles. Think of it like this: the pelvic floor is the conductor of our urinary orchestra. Our urinary function is complex but needs to be in harmony.
The therapy works by creating a pulsed magnetic field which easily penetrates bone and soft tissues, simultaneously reaching all nerves and muscles controlling urinary function.
Urinary incontinence — the loss of bladder control — is a common and often embarrassing problem affecting everyone from young mothers to nursing home patients. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that is so sudden and strong you wet your clothes frequent.

Treatments for relief
- Stress incontinence: Leaking urine when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.
- Urge incontinence: Having a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. You may need to urinate often throughout the night, causing a disruption of healthy sleeping patterns. Urge incontinence may be caused by a minor condition such as infection, or a more severe condition such as a neurological disorder or diabetes.
- Overflow incontinence: Frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that does not empty completely.
- Mixed incontinence: Experiencing more than one type of urinary incontinence.

There are many forms of substandard treatment, e.g., pelvic floor muscle exercises, medication, electric probes, uncomfortable medical devices and even surgery; however, the FDA has recently approved a treatment known as Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation (ExMI) that is very simple to use and proven to significantly improve symptoms of urinary incontinence.ExMI technology is a non-surgical, non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical treatment where patients sit fully clothed in a comfortable arm chair. The chair uses magnetic induction to penetrate deep into the perineum, activate motor neurons and innervate the muscles of the pelvic floor. Simply put, ExMI technology causes muscle contractions of the pelvic floor similar to that of a very strong Kegal exercise. Unlike any other therapy, ExMI rebuilds strength and endurance in all of the pelvic floor muscles, causing the bladder to reestablish control. Patients typically begin to see stronger muscles in the pelvic floor in as little as 12 visits with results lasting up to 2 years.
Struggling to hold on? Worried that you may not make it to the toilet in time?
Incontinence affects men and women of all ages for various reasons but one of the most common issues is weakened pelvic floor muscles. Whether it be due to child birth, weight lifting or just part of the aging process, help is available. Yes, we should all be doing our pelvic floor exercises but how do you do them when you can’t feel them in the first place? This is the problem faced by both men and women.
What is the Magnetic Pelvic Floor Chair?
The Magnetic Pelvic Floor Chair is a highly advanced piece of equipment that uses Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation or magnetic fields to contract the muscles of the pelvic floor using a magnetic frequency that is much stronger than any TENS machine or other electrical muscle stimulation device. The Pelvic Floor Chair is FDA approved for the treatment of stress, urge or mixed incontinence. The magnetic chair exercises all of the muscles in the pelvic floor region to rebuild strength and endurance to restore bladder and bowel control. The magnetic chair is capable of doing upwards of 200 pelvic floor exercises per minute at 20 times greater the intensity than the patient can do themself!
What is treatment like?
Treatment is painless. The power/frequency levels are able to be adjusted to ensure comfort at all times. The patient sits fully clothed on the magnetic chair for 22 minutes in total. Once the treatment cycle begins the pelvic floor muscles start contracting and strengthening. A cycle on the magnetic chair consists of a 10 minute cycle, a 2 minute break and then another 10 minute cycle. Treatment appointments are scheduled every 30 minutes. Many patients read a book, play on their phone or bring some headphones and listen to music during the treatment.
Will Insurance Cover This Treatment?
Insurance may cover some of the services associated with this treatment. Our Insurance team will gladly verify your insurance to determine how much of the services will be covered.
How long is the treatment plan?
A course on the Magnetic Chair usually involves 16 treatments (sometimes up to 20-24) and goes for 8 weeks with 2 treatments per week. A minimum of one day gap between treatments is required – ie. treatments can be done on a Monday and then Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday. At the end of the 16 treatments most patients are experiencing at least 50% improvement in their condition.
Is the magnetic chair suitable for everyone?
Most people are suitable for the Magnetic Chair however there are some medical conditions where the Magnetic Chair is not the recommended treatment option and you will be advised on this following an initial consult. The Magnetic Chair is not suitable for people who are pregnant, have a cardiac pacemaker or sensory deprivation (unable to feel sensation specifically in the buttocks region). Magnetic Chair treatment can continue without any concern during your menstrual cycle as well. Young children are welcomed to sit in the room with their parent as The Magnetic Chair is set up in a private room and the children can play on the floor.
What results will I get from doing a course on the Magnetic Chair?
Most patients report excellent results from a course on the Magnetic Chair however everyone is different and this can vary depending on the level of muscle tone to begin with. Many find that once completing a course on the Magnetic Chair they can then go on to correctly perform pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercises themselves as the treatment has given them a much needed boost to their muscle strength and they can actually feel that they are doing it correctly. Some patients choose to try the Magnetic Chair to avoid surgery for severe incontinence issues and the results from these patients may be only fair to average.
