TensCare Pelvic Floor Exerciser Review

by - May 27, 2022

I’ve always related the term urinary incontinence to the elderly but after having given birth to my two girls, I realise that it was not necessarily true. According to Mayo Clinic, 1 in 4 women experience urinary incontinence and it’s twice as likely to happen to women than to men. This happens because of weak pelvic muscles. Pelvic floor muscles are very important for women as it supports the bladder, bowel and uterus.

As a mother, I’ve had my fair share of urinary incontinence after the birth of my second child. I learned that this was due to the pelvic floor muscles being weakened after birth. To help strengthen my pelvic floor muscles, kegel exercises were recommended but let’s face it, it can be hard to tell if you’re doing it right when you’re not totally sure how it’s supposed to be done or how it’s supposed to feel. 

Thankfully TensCare has produced Kegel Trainers which are easy to use and help train and maintain our pelvic floor muscles. 

Who Is TensCare?

TensCare is a British medical device company that has almost 30 years of experience in electrotherapy and are mostly known for its Pain relief TENS units and Kegel Trainers. Their Kegel Trainers have been recommended for postpartum recovery as they work with hospitals and pharmacies in the UK. Just last year, TensCare received one of the most prestigious awards in the UK, the Queens’s Award which gives them nationwide recognition as a trustworthy and prestigious brand. Besides that, they have also won the Parents' Choice Award 2022 in Malaysia for the best kegel exerciser.

TensCare Kegel Trainers
Currently TensCare offers two Kegel Trainers, the Alivia Kegel Trainer and TensCare Kegel Toner. 

The Alivia Kegel Trainer suits women who have given birth better, it comes with 5 programs: -

3 Exercise modes that provide the pelvic floor muscles an all-round workout through different frequencies and pulses so that your muscles don’t get used to one exercise mode. This makes it much more effective than the traditional kegel exercises.

1 Tone mode that helps strengthen pelvic floor muscles.

1 Pain Relief mode for postpartum cramps. Period pain relief programs can be used for postpartum cramps as well, which uses TENS technology.

The Kegel Toner is an entry level trainer that is suitable for beginners and women who are preparing for pregnancy. It’s recommended for women who want to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. It comes with 2 programs: 1 Exercise and 1 Tone. The Kegel Toner is great for women who want to prevent urinary incontinence and maintain their pelvic floor muscles. For those who are experiencing pre-existing urinary incontinence, Alivia is recommended.

Personally, I prefer the Alivia Kegel Trainer and got that for myself, it is specially designed for mothers and to help postpartum recovery. I highly recommend this for new mothers, start using it 6 weeks after giving birth to speed up with recovery. If I had this back then, I would have definitely used it and suffered less from all the pain I was going through.

The Alivia Kegel Trainer was really easy to use, before starting just remember to go to the toilet because you wouldn’t want to pause in the middle of your treatment. Next, use the TensCare Go Gel to lubricate the probe tip and lay down in a comfortable position and environment. Make sure to double check your wires and once it’s connected properly insert the probe into your vagina and start your treatment. 

*Tip: Do not use a silicone-based lubricant on the stimulation contacts as it may decrease the effectiveness of the Alivia’s muscle stimulation. Always ensure the Alivia is switched OFF before inserting the probe.

After experiencing Alivia Kegal Trainer for myself, I would say that it is really helpful and the best thing, it was comfortable, I had my doubts before I got it since it was an invasive product I didn’t know what to expect but after trying it out for a few times, it has cleared my doubts, I’m happily doing my exercises now because of the variety of modes it has, the exercise aren’t boring,
