Pelvic Floor Muscle Strengthening
StarFormer® is Fotona’s latest innovation for gynecology: high intensity Tesla magnetic stimulation (HITS™), enabling fast and easy strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles without effort.
The StarFormer® IntimaWave® treatment uses non-invasive, HITS™ technology to selectively target muscle tissues and provide strengthening, toning and firming of the pelvic floor muscles to effectively treat urinary incontinence.
How it Works?
StarFormer® can be used to stimulate both the pelvic floor and back muscles to treat all types of male or female urinary and fecal incontinence. During treatment the patient remains clothed and sits on a comfortable IntimaWave® chair with built-in applicators in the seat and back of the chair. The magnetic applicators in the chair stimulate muscle contraction in the entire pelvic floor area, leading to increased muscle strength. The result is effective relief of uncontrolled urine flow.
The IntimaWave® treatment is gentle and fast, and no patient preparation is needed. The generated magnetic pulses harmlessly pass through the patient’s clothing, skin and bone, reaching otherwise inaccessible tissue. The therapy is non-invasive, painless and with no known side effects.
