The Effect of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy on Vaginal Elasticity

2019-10-09 09:21:39 | BioPortfolio


Women suffering from stress urinary incontinence are offered pelvic floor physiotherapy as an optional treatment. Strengthening of the pelvic floor is measured to date by manual examination and lacks precise evaluation. The vaginal tactile imager assists in evaluation of the changes in the pelvic floor after physiotherapy.


Women with stress urinary incontinence will undergo 6-10 pelvic floor strengthening physiotherapy sessions. The participants will undergo a short examination of vaginal elasticity using a vaginal tactile imager prior to beginning physiotherapy and additional examinations after 6 treatments, 10 treatments and 3 and 6 months post-treatment cessation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.

Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.


Support structures, made from natural or synthetic materials, that are implanted below the URETHRA to treat URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.
