What is EMSELLA®?
EMSELLA® is a non-surgical and comfortable treatment that can help with urinary incontinence. This technology provides a non-invasive option that can treat urinary incontinence that can cause the loss of bladder control, which is a condition that happens twice as often in females than males due to factors such as childbirth, pregnancy and the hormonal changes during menopause.
How does EMSELLA® works?
EMSELLA® uses focused electromagnetic energy to induce thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a single session that helps with re-educating the muscles of incontinent patients to strengthen the pelvic floor. The act of re-educating the muscle contraction is extremely important as the main cause of incontinence is the loss of bladder muscle control.
What causes Incontinence?
Urinary Incontinence is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles that are unable to support and control the bladder. This condition will lead to involuntary urinary leakage that usually happens while you are coughing, sneezing, laughing or other sudden exertion that uses abdominal strength.
This condition is commonly found in many females after childbirth as during the process of pregnancy, the additional weight and pressure stresses the pelvic floor muscles causing the pelvic floor to weaken.
If incontinence is left untreated, it may worsen over time and cause pelvic organ prolapse in severe cases.
Who is suitable for EMSELLA®?
This treatment is suitable for men and females suffering from incontinence and females after childbirth, treating it as a post-natal care. However, it is not suitable for patients who are pregnant or have a pacemaker or metal plate.
