What is special about the Liberty Pelvic Floor Stimulator?
The Liberty pelvic floor stimulator is a proven tool as it has been available for over 20 years on the US Market. The Liberty’s main advantage over other units on the market today is it’s ease of use. Liberty literally has one switch and one dial and delivers once of the strongest stimulation available. The unit offers two frequencies which have been proven effective for the treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence, Urge Urinary incontinence & Fecal Incontinence.
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI):
The Liberty has a 50 Hz frequency. The 50 Hz frequency combined with the prescribed milliamperage activates the pelvic floor muscle to contraction. Contracting the Pelvic Floor Muscle repetitively helps to strengthen the muscle thereby firmly closing the urethral opening.
Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI):
The Liberty has a 12.5 Hz frequency which is used to calm the nerves that activate the bladder to contract. Continued use of a pelvic floor stimulator has the ability to continue to help the calming effect even when the stimulation has been removed.
Milliamperage is the amount of power the stimulator transfers to the user. The Liberty’s milliamperage ranges up to 60 milliamps which is more power than you would need!
Ease of Use:
Considered on of the easiest units on the market to use. The Liberty has one switch and one dial. The switch is used to change between the 12.5 Hz and 50 Hz settings depending on the condition that you are treating. The dial is used to ramp up the milliamperage to the desired strength.
Duty cycle – is the duration of the stimulation cycle and rest cycle. It is preset at 5/10 (5 seconds of stimulation and 10 seconds of rest)
