Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
The Wave Brilliance Chair uses a magnetic field, released in pulses, causing muscle stimulation which strengthens and enhances the muscles of the pelvic floor, so they function better. You only need to sit on the chair, fully clothed, comfortably reading a book and let the chair help you.
It can be used to try and avoid surgery or as an adjunct to surgery.
What sort of things does the chair help?
The chair can improve symptoms of stress, urge or mixed urinary incontinence – for instance, somebody with urinary incontinence after childbirth or another person following prostate surgery.
How do I make an appointment?
You can make an appointment online for your initial consultation with your doctor. Following this, you’ll need to make appointments with reception to book the use of the chair.
What is the cost?
The initial consultation is charged at the same rate as any appointment fee – please click here for details. This is for explanation and consent to ensure this is the correct treatment for your individual circumstances.
Each subsequent visit where you attend for treatment on the chair are bulk billed and a doctor will discuss and assess your progress with you personally during each attendance.
Over what duration of time will I be treated?
Usually you will have 16-20 sessions. We suggest 2-3 sessions per week to allow the muscles to recover for a couple of days between each session. It is highly recommended that you have treatment which is not interrupted by breaks, so if you’re going on a holiday and can’t attend for a couple of weeks, then you’re best not to start the treatment until you return and can have your chair sessions continually.
Can anybody use it?
No. The use of the chair is not suitable for everybody, which is the reason why you need an appointment with your doctor first. It is very important to ensure this is an appropriate treatment option for you personally with your symptoms.
Once I’ve used the chair, am I cured of my urinary problems forever?
You are still encouraged to perform your own pelvic floor exercises as suggested by your doctor or physiotherapist in order to gain the most from your sessions using the chair. It gets you off to a good start, but still needs ongoing maintenance and input from you.
You may get quite a long time of improvement or recovery from one set of sessions, but you can return later for more treatments to help with your symptoms again if required.
