Advances in Uro-Gynecology
Innovation in rehabilitation: wireless biofeedback
We're proud of our state-of-the-art wireless biofeedback rehabilitation equipment. This advanced technology measures live pelvic floor muscle activity and displays it visually on a screen. Each person can see, in real time, the strength and duration of their muscle contractions.
Wireless vaginal probe: A revolution in mobility
Our system uses a vaginal probe with specific sensors and, crucially, it's wireless. This design offers unrivalled freedom of movement. This means you can perform natural movements - such as walking or jumping - while simultaneously observing pelvic floor activity.
Rehabilitation in a realistic context
The major advantage? This approach places rehabilitation in a realistic, everyday context. Beyond instant awareness of contractions, each person can adapt and improve their movements in real-life situations. It's this realistic experience that brings added value, optimizing the results of rehabilitation.
