How FemiScan works?
FemiScan devices (excluding FemiScan Stim) monitor and records muscle activity of each contraction of the pelvic floor muscles by using EMG-signals. The method offers accurate and fast measuring of pelvic floor muscle activity. Based on the measurement Home Trainer gives direct verbal feedback to guide the user towards correct exercising technique.
At the clinic, the medical professional can transfer the stored results to his/her computer, set new training goals and upload them into the FemiScan Home Trainer. Individualized training program and interactive verbal monitoring increase user compliance and are responsible for the significant increase in contraction strength and the decreased incontinence seen in case-controlled clinical trials.
Despite of modification possibilities it is possible to use FemiScan devices independently at home by a person suffering from urinary incontinence.
All that FemiScan user needs to do is to set the electrode in its place, put the headphones on, start the program by pressing the FemiScan button and follow the verbal instructions given through the headphones.
In the beginning of every training session FemiScan determinates the relaxation target level and the exercise target level. This is followed by the default or individualized program, which can be adjusted at the clinic by using FemiScan software. FemiScan Home Trainer saves data from every contraction into its memory where it can be downloaded and analyzed at the clinic.
The clear results from Femiscan therapy can normally be seen after training of 812 weeks. However positive changes usually occur after regular training of a few weeks. To reach permanent results it is recommended to repeat the therapy period once a year.
