  • Kris Says:

    I appreciate that someone realized that “kegels” are sometimes done wrong and that strong pelvic muscles are important in women’s health and made something that helps !!

  • Mary Nasvik Says:

    I want one of these! I have bladder control issues, and this would be very helpful for me. I'm 65 and would surely use this!!

  • Susanne G Says:

    Would like to try! Thanks.

  • Barbara Says:

    looks so interesting. can't wait to try.

  • Victoria Says:

    Bladder leak driving me crazy! Would love to have one to finally get this under control!!!

  • LaRue Says:

    I’ve had pelvic floor therapy by a professional pelvis floor physical therapist. I learned so much. But I would LIVE to try this as an alternative to what I learned.

  • Anne Says:

    I am a fit 60 year old, I workout 6 days per week, 4 of those days doing yoga. Core strength is emphasized during yoga and indirectly works on the pelvic floor muscles. Despite my dedication to exercise and fitness I recently became aware that I was not spending enough time working my regular Kegel exercises. I sneezed and urinated slightly, after this happened I realized I needed to spend more time working out this specific area of my body. I refuse to believe the advertisements that proclaim the percentages of women who use adult diapers, to me this is not acceptable. I have started to spend more dedicated working out the pelvic floor muscles and it makes such a difference. I can see how a device such as Elvie could working out this important muscle group.

  • Sheila Cope Says:

    I would like very much to win an Elvie!

  • Sheila Cope Says:

    I’d like very much to win an Elvie!

  • Sheila Says:

    After listening to your Pod Cast I'm excited about the possibility of trying Elvie. I'm 70 years old and have had incontinence issues for many decades. At first I used pantie liners during the daytime as as the years progress so did my incontinence to the point where I now wear heavy duty pads day and night. I would so love to not have to use them any more because I have to have them with me when I leave home for the day or when I travel. Thank you for developing a product that sounds like it will work even for me.

  • Phyllis Says:

    This is really exciting! I have had both types of incontinence for many years, probably as a result of having a very large baby. I've tried everything recommended, bladder and colon lifts (3x). The last was a little more successful, but only a little. I've been to therapy, tried all the gadgets - nothing. So, as you can imagine, I'm ready to try something that sounds so positive. I need those muscles of steel! Thanks for your interest in this problem.

  • Lynne Says:

    Ditto the last submission. I am 72 and am very interested.

  • MaryLou Says:

    I am an active 85 y o woman who is plagued by bladder incontinence, urinary frequency, leakage. I have tried several meds that do not work. In consistency of Kegal exercise & never sure I am doing it correctly. Anxious to try ELVIE.

  • MaryLou Says:

    have had a major problem for several years and Elvie may be my answer. Currently I keep Depends & Poise in business. Meds do not work for me. I have tried to do Kegals but am not faithful because never sure I am doing it right & forget to do it regularly.. Need help!! Marylou

  • Iveta Moore Says:

    For sure I could use one.

  • Cindy Says:

    thankful someone has a nonsurgical idea.

  • Mary Says:

    Would love to try it. Seems like an awesome product.

  • Brenda Says:

    Maybe it will help with my infertility!

  • Jody Says:

    Hoping this will help me get in shape in important areas, along with going to the gym to get everything thing else in shape.

  • Elaine Says:

    Alexis rocks! This is such an intelligent, unself-conscious discussion and interview. I'm 68, the mother of two, fairly informed and I only remember some cursory comment by somebody way back then that I should do kegel excecises when I had my babies. Now my daughter is pregnant with her first and I am, as we speak, buying this for her. Thank you so much.

  • Judy Says:

    I’ve had a miserable year health wise. At 66 I’ve been treated for a blood cancer in my manubrium. Also had kidney stones, then surgery to remove ovaries and tubes due to a rare tumor on one. BUT THE WORST issue this year has been dealing with leaking, pessorys which don’t work, and now the impending surgery to reposition my bladder early 2018! It’s been a very expensive year for me thus far. Do you expect the price to come down any time soon?

  • Patricia Says:

    Very timely presentation. Women today are trying to take the initiative to take care of themselves rather than sitting by and accepting things. This sounds like something all women need at some point in their lives. I think I would benefit as I am 68
    and starting to have problems also. Thanks for your work in this area.

  • Lindsay Says:

    Have been thinking I need something to help train my post partum pelvic floor. Trying to do kegels doesn't seem to be working, but I think this could do the trick!

  • Sharon Says:

    I am currently seeing a PT who is able to hook up to a machine to tell you if you are doing kegels right. It has helped but something that you could do at home would be excellent since this is an area that people don't talk about. We are living longer so we are having these issues while we are still active and don't want to have to worry about coughing, laughing and the urgency that can plague us.

  • Lisa Says:

    Would love to try it! After 4 children, this is definitely a problem!

  • Crystal Says:

    So cool!

  • Sammie Says:

    I KNOW I need to be using Elvie to control my pelvic floor. I’d love to be the winner of one so I could start using it right away. If not I will be saving my money & give myself a belated Christmas present.

  • Janice Says:

    Sounds like an important breakthrough product.

  • susan Says:

    sounds worth checking out!

  • crystal Says:

    Sounds great but is it only for women with leakage issues?

  • Kelli Says:

    Wow! Great pod cast I can not wait to try it. Thank you Tania for championing this issue!

  • JD Says:

    As a 64 year old Pilates instructor I am interested in trying it for myself - and then recommending it to clients.

    If this works a woman’s world maybe revolutionized.

  • Liz Says:

    As a mature lady with 3 pregnancies under my belt but still with a healthy sex life after menopause but I’ve begun to have bladdder control issues..I’ve been doing Kegal exercises for awhile but what a great way to keep track if I’m doing enough....Not only would I like it but my husband will reap the benefits too...

  • Patty Says:

    This brings me hope. At 64 I thought I was dumed to bladder leakage unless I chose surgery. There are lots of new challenges with the aging and some are disempowering and embarrassing, actually make me feel less than. I would love to see if Elvie will allow me to hold onto control of this bodily function and increasing pleasure with love making would take it right over the top.

  • Mary Says:

    I am almost a year out from baby #2 and my pelvic floor is in desperate need! I work on it with at home exercises but having this little gadget would motivate me to do it every day!

  • Karen Says:

    Sending this out to all the ladies in my life to listen to. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, discussing it publicly & designing a product that will help.

  • Christina Gingerich Says:

    Would love to have one but too pricey for me.

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    Thank you for the kind words and for sharing!

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    Could not agree more! Elvie is an excellent motivator since through the app you can see and feel your progress.

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    Hi Crystal, Elvie isn't just for leak prevention, it's designed to help you gain pelvic floor strength. While cutting down on leaks is a huge, a strong pelvic floor benefits your posture, core strength, reproductive health. Whether you use Elvie to help stop leaks or to improve your sex life the benefits all stem from increased control of your Kegel muscles.

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    I hear you Christina. I likened the expense to 19 yoga classes. For every time the instructor told me to use my pelvic floor and I got nowhere, Elvie has helped me make progress I don't think I could have made otherwise. Elvie is definitely worth saving up for or to give as a group gift. I hope she doesn't see this but my siblings and I are all chipping in to get one for our mom this year!

  • Alicia Says:

    Great podcast. Thank you. It's good to know there's something out there besides pads or Depends..

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    Hi Alicia,

    Exactly!! Elvie is the solution, not a band-aid. Thank you for being part of the Kegel revolution!

  • Patti Says:

    I had a similar treatment in the doctors office, I would love to have the convenience of at home

  • Mary Ann Says:

    Gave birth to six children. Am now eighty years old. Have slight bladder prolapse (maybe medium) Is it to late for Elvie to help me?

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    Hi Mary Ann, while it's advantageous to start soon it's never too late for improvement! Elvie is for all ages.

  • Amy Says:

    I would love to try this!!

  • Shannon Says:

    This subject has been popping up in a lot of conversations lately. I'd love to try a product to help me.

  • Ann McFarland Says:

    Performing kegels can be tricky. I'm "older" and had a hysterectomy several years ago due to cancer. So....now my problem is a bladder that doesn't always do as it should. The Elvie sounds as though it would be a godsend. Thanks for bringing it to the general public (....uh, me).

  • Alexis Brinkman Says:

    Hi Ann, thank you so much for sharing your story. You're speaking up for so many people who have had hysterectomies and are looking for the next step they can take in improving their bladder control and pelvic strength. I hope this reaches other women who've had the same experience!

  • Judy Says:

    I believe that I need one really badly.

  • Leslynn Says:

    I have been wanting to try this product for a while. Seems like a well thought out design.

  • marlene brotherhood Says:

    Is this helpful if one has already suffered a prolapse?

  • marlene Says:

    I would love to try this out

  • Kelly Says:

    I have been diagnosed with Prolapsed Pelvic Organs and have been trying physical therapy and weights but hope to get an Elvie to take charge and really see my progress.
