KegelSmart Personal Trainer
Its maker calls this device a "smarter way to Kegel."
Why? It's a trainer because it guides you through pelvic floor exercises, registering the strength of your muscles and adjusting the exercise (up or down) based on your contraction strength.
Insert the KegelSmart into your vagina. When you feel a gentle vibration of the device, contract your pelvic floor muscles. When the vibration stops, relax. Sensors within the device read the amount of pressure exerted; using a scale of very strong, strong, average, weak, and very weak, the KegelSmart selects the right level for your next session. The KegelSmart will continue to evaluate your pelvic strength to ensure you're exercising at the optimal level, adjusting the exercises as you go.
Uses one AAA battery, which is not included. One-year manufacturer's warranty.
Manufacturer: Lelo Intimina
Who Should Consider This Product
Every woman can benefit from a strong pelvic floor, which supports internal organs like the bladder, bowel, and uterus. The KegelSmart is a simple way to assure that Kegel exercises are done effectively, whether you're preparing for or recovering from childbirth, looking to prevent incontinence, or seeking enhanced sensation during intimacy.
Why We Chose It
Lelo has been among our favorite manufacturers for the quality of their design. Their Intimina line has been a smart addition, and this product in particular was developed by Intimina's medical advisory board, which includes gynecologists and pelvic floor experts.
Things We Like
- Easy to use: You don't need to choose a level, count muscle contractions, or time yourself. It's like having a personal coach providing direction.
- Five levels of exercises: Each of the levels has its own routine designed to build strength and tone over time.
- Immediate feedback: When on, a flashing LED light displays the current strength and duration level (one flash for level one through five flashes for level five).
- Useful any time, anywhere: The guiding vibrations are silent for discreet exercising.
- Waterproof for complete hygiene: The KegelSmart can be washed in soap and water.
Made of medical-grade silicone, the KegelSmart is hypoallergenic, latex- and phthalate-free, and contains no toxins. An antibacterial pouch is provided for storage.
Turn on and insert the KegelSmart. When you feel the vibration, lift and squeeze your pelvic muscles and hold the contraction for the duration of the vibration. When the vibration stops, release and relax your pelvic floor muscles. Resting between contractions is an important part of the exercise, as it gives your muscles time to recover. Breathe normally as you do your routine.
Each exercise routine will begin with a warm-up of short contract/rest motions, followed by the main workout of longer contract/rest motions suited to your pelvic floor strength level. A series of three quick vibrations signifies the end of the exercise routine and the device will turn off automatically.
