FemiScan - Soft and Safe Pelvic Therapy
Effective Clinical Treatment for Stress Incontinence, Urge Incontinence, Unstable Bladder and Pelvic Pain
FemiScan HT Clinic Set
FemiScan Inco Trainer - shown with vaginal sensor
The Inco Trainer is used by Physiotherapists, Gynecologists and Urology Nurses to evaluate condition of the pelvic floor muscles. The measurement is based on EMG activity recorded from the pelvic floor muscles. With the help of the anatomically designed probe both left and right sided activity can be measured simultaneously. An easy to use Windows program is part of the package.
Evaluation of Muscle Condition
With the user-friendly FemiScan software, an individualized training program can be designed for the patient. Instructional prompts are transferred to the FemiScan Home Trainer, which guides the exercises with clear verbal commands. Measurement results and a training diary are recorded in the Home Trainer memory, available for review during the next follow-up visit.
Individualized Tailoring of the Training Program
The Home Trainer has an internal microprocessor, which contains a training program, a sound processor for verbal instructions and memory sufficient for one month of training.
Home Training Phase
The Home Trainer enables complete home care follow up and a graphic display of the results and progress.
The FemiScan system uses single-user sensor covers for both EMG biofeedback and electrical stimulation.

Stress and Urge Incontinence
The two main types of urinary incontinence.
Urge incontinence is a consequence of hyperactive bladder function in which the patient senses the need to urinate before leakage of urine. Urge incontinence is associated with e.g. recurrent urinary tract infections and central nervous system disorders.
About a fourth of urinary incontinence cases are urge incontinence. Urge incontinence can be treated with medicines that relax bladder muscle function.
The most common (40%) incontinence disorder is stress incontinence, in which urine leaks during physical exertion. Other problems are also associated with urinary incontinence, such as fecal incontinence and prolapse of the uterus. Urinary incontinence caused by insufficient support of the pelvic floor can be treated surgically, but surgery can be avoided with many other modes of therapy. Pelvic weakness can cause light bladder leakage (LBL).
Most Urinary Incontinence Cases Can Be Successfully Treated
Active pelvic floor muscle training is the most important of the pelvic floor conditioning methods. Such training increases pelvic floor muscle strength and functional capacity.
New training methods take advantage of developments in microprocessor based EMG biofeedback. EMG biofeedback enables e.g. follow-up of individually tailored home training programs. Through biofeedback many physiological conditions or changes of which the patient is completely unaware can be observed.
Voluntary contraction of weak pelvic floor muscles is especially difficult. Biofeedback is beneficial in teaching control of many body functions, including control of pelvic floor muscles. Visual or auditory feedback reinforces self instruction.
80% of Patients Undergoing Physical Therapy Improve
For improvement of urinary stress incontinence by non surgical means it is important that pelvic floor exercises be properly carried out for a sufficient period of time.
After a traditional three-month pelvic floor training program without biofeedback or electrical stimulation, 55% of patients improve, 15% do not benefit and 30% discontinue exercises before the end of the program.
By improving the method of follow-up with FemiScan and increasing motivation, 80% of women suffering from stress incontinence can improve.
When using FemiScan with both biofeedback and electrical stimulation, along with complementary techniques of weighted cones and manual facilitation, Biomation will guarantee 85% successful results.
