Understanding Urinary Incontinence
The most common causes of urinary incontinence (UI) for women include vaginal childbirth, body aging, and menopause. When you urinate, contracting muscles will force urine out of the bladder and down into the urethra. At the same time, sphincter muscles around the urethra will relax in order to release urine from the body. Incontinence occurs when the muscles and/or nerves that help release or retain urine are damaged.
Different Types of Urinary Incontinence
The two most common types of urinary incontinence are Stress Incontinence and Urge Incontinence.
Stress incontinence is the most common type of urinary incontinence. Stress incontinence refers to urine leakage during movement or exertion, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping, etc. The leading cause of stress incontinence is usually menopause or vaginal childbirth. When stress incontinence occurs, tissues that support the bladder are stretched and/or weakened. This makes the bladder exert pressure downward on the sphincter muscles that keep the urethra shut. Ultimately, muscles are prevented from closing as tightly as possible for urinary retention to occur during physical stress. Stress incontinence is improved when the muscles and tissues supporting the bladder are strengthened.
Urge incontinence refers to a sudden “urge” to urinate, often followed by an involuntary loss of urine. Urge incontinence will occur when the muscles in the bladder contract due to abnormal nerve signals. As the overactive bladder muscles overpower the sphincter muscles that close the urethra, urinary retention is lost. Similar to stress incontinence, urge incontinence can be improved by strengthening the muscles that support the bladder.
Kegels, a common name for pelvic floor exercises, strengthen muscles and tissues that support the bladder. Kegels are the most prescribed treatment given for improving urinary incontinence.
How Emsella Works
Emsella is the first device of its kind. The Emsella device is an ergonomic chair that is FDA-cleared to treat urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity. The chair, also known as the ‘kegel throne,’ is equipped with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology or HIFEM. A typical treatment is 30 minutes long, in which the patient (fully clothed) will sit on a chair. The electromagnetic energy will penetrate the pelvic floor and activate neurons that signal pelvic muscles to contract. In just one session of an Emsella treatment, more than 11,000 supramaximal pelvic floor contractions will be delivered. This is the equivalent of 11,000 Kegels. No downtime is required for Emsella treatments.
Emsella treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless. In addition, treatments from this revolutionary device result in the strengthening of pelvic floor muscles, tightening of the vaginal wall, and rebuilding of the tissues that support the pelvic organs. All these effects lead to a decrease in both urge and stress incontinence, improved urinary retention, and- as a bonus- greater sexual satisfaction.
As with all medical treatments, results from Emsella may vary.* Some patients report an improvement in bladder control after just one Emsella treatment. However, for most patients, an average treatment plan includes up to 6 treatment sessions in total (2 sessions weekly, for 3 weeks). Research shows that 95% of patients that followed the average protocol reported an improvement in their quality of life just after 3 weeks of Emsella treatments. Two-thirds of these patients also reported eliminating or reducing their need for pads to catch leakage.
The Cost of Emsella
Emsella costs will vary per patient. Many factors affect the price of Emsella, including the number of sessions recommended for optimal results.
