The magic chair

Author: admin

Here’s a quick way to plug a leak—no surgery, no tedious exercises. A high-tech chair called ‘BTL EMSella’ can do wonders for individuals suffering from stress urinary incontinence or any kind of incontinence. The chair, recently approved by the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), uses high-intensity electro-magnetic pulses that penetrate the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and create muscle contractions, thus strengthening the muscles. This achieves much more aggressive contraction during six short sessions resulting in enhanced results than what Kegel exercises can do. You just need to sit, fully clothed, on the chair and its electromagnetic technology will activate motor neurons in your pelvic floor.
