What is ED (Erectile Dysfunction)?
ED is a result of insufficient blood flow to the penis.
This is why pelvic floor exercises, or kegel exercises for ED are so important for sufferers. These exercises target the muscles at the base of the pelvis, especially a muscle known as the pubococcygeus.
A strong pelvic floor therefore equals a strong pubococcygeus by association, which is necessary to attain and maintain an erection.
If you suspect that you may have erectile dysfunction and it is affecting you both physically and mentally.

What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence — the loss of bladder control — is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that’s so sudden and strong you don’t get to a toilet in time.
Though it occurs more often as people get older, urinary incontinence isn’t an inevitable consequence of aging. If urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don’t hesitate to see your doctor. For most people, simple lifestyle and dietary changes or medical care can treat symptoms of urinary incontinence.
What are the symptoms of Urinary Incontinence?
Many people experience occasional, minor leaks of urine. Others may lose small to moderate amounts of urine more frequently.
Types of urinary incontinence include:
Urine leaks when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.
You have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. You may need to urinate often, including throughout the night. Urge incontinence may be caused by a minor condition, such as infection, or a more severe condition such as a neurological disorder or diabetes.
You experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn’t empty completely.
A physical or mental impairment keeps you from making it to the toilet in time. For example, if you have severe arthritis, you may not be able to unbutton your pants quickly enough.
You experience more than one type of urinary incontinence — most often this refers to a combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
How does Starformer Intimawave help Urinary Incontinence?
StarFormer can additionally be used to stimulate pelvic floor muscles and back, utilising two applicators to treat all types of male or female. During treatment, the patient remains fully clothed and sits on a comfortable Intimawave chair.
The magnetic applicators in the chair stimulate muscle contraction in the entire pelvic floor area, increasing the strength and endurance of the pelvic floor.
The result is effective and long-term relief of uncontrolled urine flow.
