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.
