About ExMI Technology:
How does ExMI therapy work?
Special electromagnets have been designed and built into the seat of the ExMi chair. An effective magnetic field the size of a pineapple is generated.By sitting in the chair over this magnetic field, the muscles of the pelvic floor are induced to contract. The effect is a natural muscle contraction.
How does ExMI cure incontinence?
For most urinary incontinence is caused by weakness in the muscles of the pelvic floor, due to age or damage caused by giving birth, hysterectomy, radical prostatectomy or a combination of factors. When the pelvic floor muscles are made to exercise by stimulation, this activity will help to strengthen and restore effective control. Multicenter clinical studies have confirmed ExMI stimulation of pelvic floor for treatment of incontinence.
What else can ExMI therapy do?
In recent years, dozens of clinical studies in 15 countries have been implemented regarding future applications. The fact that muscle activity radically improves blood flow indicate a variety of possible treatment indications. Many f the following conditions are pending FDA approval for treatment with ExMI: fecal incontinence, prostatitis/prostadynia, interstitial cystitis, radical prostatectomy, benign prostahypertrophy (BPH), post-partum incontinence, female sexual dysfunction, male hormone and sperm count deficiency, pelvic pain in men and women, neuropathy due to chemotherapy/diabetes, and arthritis.
PFCA utilizes ExMI technology
Unlike electrical stimulation, ExMI uses electromagnetic fields to induce natural contractions of the pelvic floor muscles. There is no need for direct contact, probes, patches, or other electrodes; you remain comfortably seated and fully clothed throughout the duration of treatment. Electromagnetic stimulation is painless and harmless. ExMI offers renewed hope to those whose only previous options were surgery, drugs and behavioral therapies.
