Pelvic Floor Training and the role of Biofeedback: Health Care Professionals usually advise Pelvic Floor Training as a first line treatment or an adjunct therapy for urine leakage that occurs during coughing, laughing or on exertion. Pelvic floor exercises are effective, but only if carried out regularly and diligently. The lack of feedback on progress may lead to frustration and the discontinuation of an exercise routine, hence, it is prudent to choose devices/exercisers with biofeedback function, such as Peritron Perineometer and PFX range of pelvic floor exercisers with pressure biofeedback. The challenge is to motivate and encourage the workout and simultaneously ensure exercising of the correct muscles. Appropriate feedback will stimulate discipline and step-wise progress. PFX is available in 2 versions - vaginal for women only and anal that can used by both men and women. PFX and Peritron Perineometer products can help people, who wish to monitor the effectiveness of their exercising efforts, because of the valuable biofeedback that they generate. Pelvic floor exercises should become routine events in women's lives, but especially before and after childbirth, hysterectomy and the menopause.
