EMG and Pressure Biofeedback with Pelvic Floor Stimulation for Clinical Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Pelvic floor stimulation – also referred to as ‘perineal stimulation’ – is the most popular method of continence therapy and pelvic floor rehabilitation in professional clinical settings. Taking aside the traditional Kegel exercises -purposeful voluntary contractions of pelvic floor muscles, recommended by professionals as the routine first step of keeping pelvic floor strong in order to prevent incontinence, the electric pelvic floor stimulation is the next step in pelvic floor rehabilitation and in re-education of weakened and compromised pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor stimulation is a therapeutic modality commonly delivered by professionals, such as continence physiotherapists in hospitals or continence therapy clinics, whilst it is recommended by midwives, obstetricians, gynaecologists, urologists and urogynaecologists. Whilst suitable for men and women, pelvic floor stimulation is especially successful in re-educating of female pelvic floor muscles and effectively combating all types of incontinence in women.
The key aims of pelvic floor stimulation are re-education and rehabilitation of pubococcygeal muscles and anal levators. Normally, vaginal stimulation probes are used as well as anal stimulation probes. Pelvic floor stimulation therapy is frequently preceded by a diagnostic pelvic floor muscle assessment with EMG (Electromyography) and/or Pressure Biofeedback enabling selection of appropriate stimulation parameters for the best therapeutic outcomes. EMG and Pressure Biofeedback also represent valuable tools in the evaluation of treatment progress in the course of the therapy.
Pelvic floor stimulation heightens perineal muscle activity, leading to a concurrent improvement in two important factors of pelvic floor strength – pelvic floor muscle tone muscle tone and local blood flow. Furthermore, an increase in urethral closure pressure has been reported (ref. Dr Pigne, Dr Bourcier) and a significant improvement in bladder compliance together with a considerable reduction in non-inhibited contractions of the detrusor muscle.
Advanced perineal rehabilitation device for clinical use by continence professionals include unique pelvic floor stimulation equipment by BEACMED:
- TOTEM-UG Pelvic Floor Stimulator (TOTEM UROGYNACOLOGICAL) - a unique wearable incontinence rehabilitation device with wireless connection to a PC. TOTEM-UG combines EMG and Pressure Biofeedback with Pelvic Floor Stimulator, working together to re-educate and rehabilitate pelvic floor muscles and treat incontinence. Utilising a specially designed TOTEM-Combicon Vaginal Probe, TOTEM-UG allows differentiated training on the left and right side of the pubococcygeal muscle with either pelvic floor stimulation or biofeedback, whilst at the same time acquiring the pressure produced by the involuntary contractions or patient driven voluntary pelvic floor contractions.
Nu-Tek EMG ETS STIM Devices and Neen EMG Biofeedback
Nu-Tek is a new brand of EMG ETS STIM Devices for muscle assessment and muscle rehabilitation. The Nu-Tek EMG and Stimulators have been especially developed to provide affordable, yet advanced devices for therapeutic applications at clinics and for use by individuals at home.
Nu-Tek EMG ETS STIM Devices have been designed by Jim Oliver, formerly of Verity Medical - the makers of the NeuroTrac brand of electrotherapy devices - and an expert in EMG and neuromuscular stimulation and all the applications of EMG and neuromuscular stimulation in continence therapy, pelvic floor assessment, pelvic floor rehabilitation, general muscle rehabilitation and pain relief. The aim of the Nu-Tek range is to provide clinicians with an advanced and reliable alternative brand of devices for clinics and for home use, thus, delivering choice as well as affordability.
Technologically advanced, but easy to use and affordable, all Nu-Tek devices deliver reliability, accuracy, cost effectiveness and value for both the professional and individual users.
Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation and Continence Therapy being the highest on the Nu-Tek applications agenda, the Nu-Tek Muscle Rehabilitation Devices also effectively address applications in Sports, General Physiotherapy and Neurology.
EMG, ETS and Electrical Stimulation as Treatment Modalities are supported by research and clinical studies and proven in successful and effective daily practice for many years. Broad list of applications for EMG, ETS and STIM stretches from Continence Therapy, General Physiotherapy, Muscle Rehabilitation and Sport Training Enhancement to Pain Relief.

Neen Electromyography Biofeedback
EMG stands for ‘electromyography’, which means the measurement of muscle activity using an EMG device. Muscle activity is normally measured in microvolts (µV), whilst the duration of muscle contractions and muscle relaxations is measured in seconds. EMG devices record the muscle activity values and display them on their display screens, aiming to assist in the retraining of weakened or otherwise compromised muscles.
Biofeedback provides greater awareness of physiological functions, such as muscle tone, using special devices that capture activities within the target muscles or organs, using surface skin electrodes or internal electrodes (i.e. probes) and even intramuscular needles.
Awareness based on biofeedback can be highly motivating and it frequently helps the sufferers of some conditions (i.e. pelvic floor weakness, continence problems) to actively work towards positive improvements.
During EMG Biofeedback, muscle activities are detected, displayed and recorded on an EMG device. The data is subsequently analysed for diagnostic purposes. In short, the EMG based muscle assessment is a method, which assists medical professionals in arriving at correct diagnoses and thereafter implementing appropriate therapeutic actions.
Neen EMG Biofeedback Device Peritone PLUS has been designed for use in a variety of diagnostic applications, including continence and pelvic floor related conditions. Equally, Neen Peritone PLUS can also be used successfully for Sports and General Physiotherapy applications. When used at home, Peritone PLUS shows the users how strong their pelvic floor muscles are and helps them to support their pelvic floor workout. Now equipped with a Bluetooth connection software, Peritone PLUS can be easily linked with a PC to analyse pelvic floor status.
