A pelvic workout

TELL me what makes a man, crooned Westlife. But Bioinfinity asked, “What makes a woman?” And the answer, they say, lies within the pelvic floor muscles.

The pelvic floor muscles are the unsung workhorses in the life of a woman. Located at the base of the abdomen and adjacent to the vaginal canal, they support the spine, which helps prevent back pain; they hold the foetus during pregnancy and push the baby out during childbirth; they are responsible for a women’s sexual experience; and they help to control the flow of urine.

Commonly, women report a decrease in quality of sexual experience following childbirth. This is due to the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. If left unchecked, this often develops into back pain, urinary and faecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse, a condition where the bladder or uterus protrudes into the vaginal canal, requiring surgical correction.

All of this can be prevented by simply strengthening the pelvic floor muscles through exercise. The Australian government advises, “Every woman who has had a baby should do pelvic floor muscle training.”

But as a group of media representatives and bloggers learnt from physiotherapist Suhaila Shohaimi of Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM), this is often far easier said than done.

Many women end up using the wrong muscle group, or applying the wrong technique, reaping no reward for their efforts.

To help women strengthen their pelvic floor muscles effectively, Bioinfinity has introduced the Vibrance Kegel Device.

Market Development executive Jayne Lee highlighted the high quality medical grade silicone rubber material, biofeedback and audio-guided training features, and strength-enhancing sheaths that combine to make the device a potent weapon to restore a woman’s vitality. She also shared that the device has won the Gold Medal at the Geneva Awards for Invention.

Subsequently, participants heard from two users of the Vibrance Kegel Device on how it impacted their lives. One of them is a 52-year-old mother of three. “Since I started using the device, many people have asked me the secret to beauty and looking younger,” she said.

Another lady shared how the device helped her to bring her intimate experience to new heights, thanks to her newly strengthened pelvic floor muscles.
