PelvicToner: an option for use in pelvic floor muscle training

The PelvicToner device is now available to prescribe on the NHS. Pelvic floor muscle training (PFME) is recommended as first line treatment for urinary incontinence in women by NICE.
 
A small study in 40 women published online by the British Journal of Urology International compared PFME without resistance to PFME using the PelvicToner device over a period of 16 weeks.

Using subject-reported improvement between treatment groups as the primary outcome measure, the device was shown to be non-inferior to the standard treatment. However, some patients found the biofeedback given by the device to be beneficial.
