SensaTone Digital Pelvic Floor Stimulator
SensaTone is an ultra simple and light, but powerful pelvic floor stimulator. SensaTone PFS is compact and stylish and designed for use by women of all ages. SensaTone Pelvic Floor Stimulator exercises and strengthens pelvic floor muscles, helping to prevent or treat incontinence, whilst also helping to increase sexual sensitivity.
Pelvic floor muscles are just the same as all other muscles in your body. The more you exercise them, the stronger they become. SensaTone Pelvic Floor Stimulator performs pelvic floor exercises for you and effortlessly works out your pelvic floor muscles for optimum strength.
When your pelvic floor muscles become stronger, you will enjoy all the benefits of healthy and fit pelvic floor. Women with strong pelvic floor have greater control over their bladder as well as increased vaginal tone and greater sensation during sexual activity.
Women with weak pelvic floor often suffer pelvic floor weakness related problems. Pelvic floor can be compromised by many factors and events, such as childbirth, hormonal changes or excess body weight. On average as many as 1 in 3 adult women experiences some form of incontinence at some point during her life. If pelvic floor weakness is not addressed, it can lead to long term incontinence and the loss of quality of life. It is therefore important that women of all ages strive to achieve and thereafter maintain strong pelvic floor by performing regular pelvic floor exercises.
SensaTone effortlessly stimulates your pelvic floor muscles, performing effortless pelvic floor exercises for you, giving you strong pelvic floor muscles for lifelong continence and great sexual sensitivity.
SensaTone Pelvic Floor Stimulator treats all types of urinary incontinence:
1. Stress incontinence: SensaTone helps you to address and eradicate stress incontinence.
Stress incontinence often arises after childbirth that can compromise pelvic floor. Compromised or weak pelvic floor muscles manifest themselves through urine leakage. Stress incontinence is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women and can be experienced following the childbirth or at anytime. Stress incontinence can even occur in women, who never gave birth. Others reasons that influence pelvic floor strength and lead to stress incontinence are hormonal changes during natural ageing process, menopause and participation in high impact sports (i.e. jumping, running and heavy lifting). SensaTone Pelvic Muscle Stimulator can help you perform your pelvic floor exercises diligently, effortlessly and for the optimum strength of your pelvic floor!
2. Urge Incontinence: SensaTone PFS helps you to ease urge incontinence.
'Urge incontinence' is another common type of urinary incontinence in women. Urge incontinence simply means that urine leaks suddenly and uncontrollably. Often you urinate before you are in the toilet as it happens almost immediately after you felt the urgency to urinate. You simply cannot reach the toilet on time! Urge incontinence is often referred to as 'overactive bladder'. Again, pelvic floor muscles play an important role in bladder training. SensaTone can help you train your pelvic floor muscle effortlessly to reduce the symptoms of urge incontinence!
3. Mixed incontinence: SensaTone PFS helps you to retrain your pelvic floor to reduce the symptoms associated with mixed incontinence.
Many women of all ages experience mixed incontinence - a mixture of stress incontinence and urge incontinence. SensaTone PFS can help you develop strong pelvic floor muscles and help you prevent or reduce your incontinence problems. It is never to late to commence your pelvic floor strengthening efforts!
Using SensaTone PFS

SensaTone's Mode A addresses urge incontinence very effectively. If you are experiencing urge incontinence, you should use SensaTone in Mode A once or twice daily for 30 minutes as pre-set. You can adjust the strength of the signal to your own personal preference. Improvements are made by reducing the false signals sent by the bladder to the brain. You may see improvements in as little as 14 days.
- Mode B - Stress Incontinence: 30 minutes treatment time (10 Hz / 5 minutes; 35 Hz / 5 minutes; 50 Hz / 10 minutes; 35 Hz / 5 minutes; 10 Hz / 5 minutes).
SensaTone's Mode B is effective in reducing the symptoms of stress incontinence. You should treat yourself once daily for 30 minutes as pre-set or at least every other day, depending on severity of your urinary leaks. You can adjust the strength of the signal to your own personal preference. Improvements come slowly with build up of the pelvic floor muscle fibres and increase in nerve sensitivity. Achieving significant improvements may take up to 2 months.
- Mode C - Mixed Incontinence: 45 minutes treatment time (10 Hz / 5 minutes; 20 Hz / 5 minutes; 30 Hz / 5 minutes; 40 Hz / 5 minutes; 50 Hz / 5 minutes; 40 Hz / 5 minutes; 30 Hz / 5 minutes; 20 Hz / 5 minutes; 10 Hz / 5 minutes).

You should complete one treatment per day. You can adjust the strength of the signal to your own personal preference. You should notice some difference in your urinary symptoms within 21 days.
- Mode D - After Care: Frequency increases from 2 Hz to 10 Hz in 4 seconds and then back to 2 Hz in 4 seconds.
