BTL Emsella® Urinary Incontinence Treatment
The Emsella® Incontinence Treatment in Newcastle is a highly effective, non-invasive pelvic floor machine for treating stress incontinence. The Emsella Chair, a pelvic floor machine, is an advanced medical device that looks like an ordinary chair using electromagnetic technology to stimulate and tighten the pelvic floor muscles quickly. Strengthening the weakened pelvic floor muscles, restores bladder control and eradicates urinary incontinence.
If, like most of us, you struggle to do your pelvic floor crunches daily, fear not, as just 1 session on the Emsella® chair is the equivalent of 11,000 pelvic floor tenses! This makes it the very best pelvic floor trainer available.
The BTL Emsella® chair is a revolutionary, non-invasive, and comfortable physiotherapy treatment for:
- Men or women are suffering from urinary incontinence
- Mothers with stress incontinence following childbirth
- Women with decreased sexual satisfaction
Endorsed by highly regarded gynaecologists worldwide, the BTL Emsella® treatment results are truly impressive in improving quality of life.
How The BTL Emsella® Chair Works
The pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic floor organs and control continence. However, natural body ageing, childbirth and menopause can cause this group of muscles to decondition, resulting in incontinence problems such as leaking urine when coughing or sneezing.
The BTL Emsella® treatment uses High-Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic Energy (HIFEM) to stimulate and strengthen all the pelvic floor muscles, not just the subset that can be exercised with voluntary contractions (Kegel exercises). These stronger pelvic floor muscles restore continence and the confidence to enjoy normal daily activities without fear of losing bladder control.
During each 28-minute session, you sit comfortably on the Emsella chair while it generates thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions. Each session is equivalent to doing 11000 pelvic floor exercises without the hard work!
The procedure is non-invasive, and you remain fully clothed throughout. No drugs are required, and you will most likely feel a slight tingling during the treatment. You can leave immediately after each session with no recovery time and resume normal daily activity.
The majority of people need a course of 6 sessions over a period of 3 weeks to see optimum results, with most people seeing and feeling results after just 2 or 3 treatment sessions.

What Are The Pelvic Floor Muscles?
The pelvic floor muscle spans the bottom of the pelvis and is one of the core muscles. It supports the pelvis organs including the intestines, uterus, vagina, bladder and urethra.
The pelvic floor muscle is the base of the entire pelvis – it stabilises and supports the lower back (spine and pelvis) together with adjacent core muscles. Also, it stretches like a hammock to support pelvis organs such as the bladder, uterus and intestines. Any cause of damage to the pelvic floor muscles may result in pelvic floor dysfunction.
Common causes of a weakened pelvic floor include ageing, pregnancy, childbirth, multiple deliveries, being physically inactive, prostate cancer treatment in males, obesity, chronic constipation, heavy lifting, chronic cough, etc. Moreover, infections of the pelvic floor muscles, inflammation, injury, or overstretching may damage the muscle.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
If you are struggling with any of the following conditions linked with pelvic floor problems, then BTL Emsella® might be the perfect treatment for you:
- Stress incontinence caused by menopause or childbirth
- Embarrassing urine leakage when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or exercising
- Inability to control the bladder when feeling a sudden, intense urge to pee
- Intimate health conditions such as vaginal laxity and difficulty reaching orgasm
- For men where infections, prostate cancer or stress have had a negative impact on incontinence and/or intimate health.
- For women where body ageing, childbirth and menopause have led to incontinence as the muscles that support the pelvic floor lose strength.
It is effective for both men and women in improving bladder control and intimate health.
The Science Behind BTL Emsella®
BTL Emsella® chair adopts a breakthrough technology called High-intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology (HiFEM ™). It is a non-invasive MRI technology that induces supramaximal contraction of pelvic floor muscles without causing pain. It will result in intense contraction of muscles without your conscious control and hence strengthen the muscles, restore energy and tighten bladder, urethra and pelvic area muscles. It further gives you back control of the bladder and improves leaking or urinary incontinence. The strength and endurance of the pelvic floor muscles and the urinary system will be significantly improved.
HIFEM™ ultrasound imaging
Clinical data shows that 28 minutes of HIFEM can induce 12,000 times of supramaximal contraction of pelvic floor muscles. It is the only patented technology in the world that can reach 10 cm depth of the pelvic floor muscles.
