Kegel Trainer

It’s a good idea for ladies to do kegel exercises, but many don’t know where to start. (Or what it is they are exercising.) That’s where Elvie comes in. It’s a smart kegel trainer that coaches you through workouts to help strengthen your pelvic floor. Elvie is connected to an app that provides feedback (and encouragement) as you work the pelvic floor muscles. This muscle group runs from the tailbone to the pubic bone, and acts like a hammock that lifts and supports your core. Keeping this area healthy is also important for major functions like bladder control and even sex. Built-in sensors gauge your strength and progress, and a workout is only about 5-10 minutes a few times a week. Regular Kegel exercises can help build up muscle tone and strength in this often overlooked, but important, area, which can lead to a stronger core—and a healthier you.

    @Robin thanks for your questions. Elvie is covered in medical grade silicone which means it's very simple to clean- just wash with mild soap and warm water before and after use. Elvie does not do Kegels for you, but helps you build strength by measuring your squeezes and giving real time feedback via the app. As you move up the levels more games will be introduced to keep you motivated to beat your personal best!

    @Suzanne hi, I have many questions and this is very expensive! I use to do keels but after 5 vaginal births to my daughters, a horrible hysterectomy and bladder sling put in with pig ligaments, then screws put in my SI joint, a network disc in the middle of my back with spacers and the the final thing a Medtronic Box with all my spine that shock me all day. I still had sex at the age of 50 every day and only a little urine leakage. Now from a large needle injection in my tallbone I can't do kegels anymore,have trouble holding urine and contracting my vagania.... forget it. This I think would be prefect but the cost is high and also I want to know can I use it if I have a Medtronic Box inside my back? Thank you if you if can help me and no I don't want to go to doctor, lol, take care, Lyn

    @Lyn hi, thanks for your questions. As Elvie is a passive device that measures pelvic floor muscle movement, users do need to be able to contract their pelvic floor muscles in order to use it. You mentioned that you have trouble contracting your vagina, so Elvie might not be the product for you at this time. However if there is a point in the future where you are recommended to do Kegels then Elvie certainly could be useful for you, in conjunction with advice from your doctor. I hope this helps, do let me know if you need further clarification.

    @jessica Hi, you can use Elvie during pregnancy as long as you are not suffering from any complications.

Every pregnancy is unique so if you are unsure please consult your qualified medical professional before use.

  • Suzanne
    Suzanne – Special Guest
    7/17/2017 11:49 AM

    @Yvette Hi! Kegels have been shown to significantly reduce the effects of stress incontinence and many doctors and health organisations worldwide recommend that women do Kegels regularly.

    However, women often don't know how to do the exercises, or find it hard to stay motivated. Elvie tells you if you're exercising correctly (1 in 3 women push down instead of lifting) and measures the strength of your squeezes, allowing you to track your progress in the companion app. This kind of instant biofeedback is proven to be the most effective way of encouraging regular and effective exercise but was mostly used in a hospital setting...until now!

    Hi Suzanne,

    I'm just wondering if this product would help rejuvenate me regarding the loss of sexual pleasure. I'm 54, on hormone replacement therapy to help with pain during sex, but I have found I have lost sensation "down there", other than feeling irritation. Would this product help me in any way in that regard? Many thanks, Lisa

  • Suzanne

    7/17/2017 11:53 AM

    @Lisa Thanks for your question. Elvie is designed to help women reap the benefits of regular pelvic floor exercise which includes better bladder control a stronger core and (yes!) improved sex. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles which are the same muscles that contract when you orgasm so there is certainly a connection. However if you are feeling pain and irritation I would advise your consult your doctor before using Elvie, as with any pelvic health condition. I hope this helps!

    I just wanted to add some masculine emphasis here about how important, and easily overlooked, this type of exercise is. My wife had real problems with her pelvic floor after our last child was born. Incontinence was a real issue. She started doing these exercises and after about a month, her bladder control started to improve.

    But the hidden up side was in her sexuality and self body view.

    I will be buying one of these come payday as a gift to my wife to help encourage her to continue to do her exercises.

    I want to thank the designers and builders of this tool for making this a tool and not going down the path of "toy." And I can tell all the perspective feminine buyers out there, that if they use this regular, your lover will certainly take a deep notice!
