What is Estim?

Estim is known under a few descriptions, Erotic Stimulation, Erotic Electro Stimulation and Electric Stimulation.

Depending what your needs are there are plenty of devices to chose from and it is always best to discuss the types of devices with your medical advisor prior to investing.

Estim is also known as EMS Electrical muscle stimulation or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)

What ever you chose to call it or which ever product you decide to use all of them come down to one thing, which is forcing the of muscles to contract through electric impulses.

Women with weak pelvic floor muscles may see this as an easy option for pelvic floor exercising, but  with every good idea there is always a down side, which is why it is so important to discuss any alternative pelvic floor therapy with your medical advisor and physiotherapist. Over use of an electrical stimulation on muscles and cause over tightening of the muscles which can lead to fatigue.

Using Estim with a physiotherapist.

The physiotherapist may place electrodes on the skin in various locations or insert a probe into the vagina to be able to stimulate a single or group of muslces.

These controled contractions via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscles. The physiotherapist can chnage the settings to allow for a strong or gentle muscle contraction. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.

EMS machines can be beneficial as a strengthening training device towards healthy muscles and ligaments. It can also be used effectively as a rehabilitation method in patients that have little or no sensation of the muscles.

The machines used in physiotherapy practises are more powerful and tend to reach deeper into the muscle mass than the home devices.

There are several types of EMS devices and are used in different ways but all end up with the same purpose: to contract and stimulate muscles through the delivery of electrical impulses.

EMS can be particularly helpful for stroke patients.

IncoStress No More Misery for Thousands of Women

IncoStress No More Misery for Thousands of Women

IncoStress Gaynor Morgan The answer in the palm of your hand

What is the award winning magazine Women Talking about?

Millions of women experience incontinence, largely due to insufficient strength to the pelvic floor muscles. Some may lose a few drops of urine while running or coughing, while others may feel a strong, sudden urge to urinate just before losing a large amount. Many women experience both symptoms.

Incontinence can be slightly bothersome or totally demoralising and for many women the risk of public embarrassment stops them enjoying many activities and impacts on their quality of life. Additionally urine loss can also occur during sex and cause tremendous emotional distress.

Gaynor Morgan’s mother Carole suffered in silence for years and searching for solutions mother and daughter found help was not readily at hand. As incontinence isn’t deemed a life threatening condition, very little money is spent on research. The most common solution offered for incontinence is pads, which only hide the problem but never solve it. Gaynor and Carole were looking for a more permanent solution.

Gaynor’s story behind the development of reveals experiences and challenges that brought invaluable skills for running her successful company. Born in Bridgend, South Wales, Gaynor’s career has taken her half way around the world and back as the C&G Medicare Ltd headquarters are located in South Wales supplying the UK, Canada and the European market with their products.
