GyneFlex

Dr. Kegel's Perineometer
Dr. Kegel's Perineometer

History
In 1948 Arnold Kegel, MD noted that, "the passage of the fetal head through the vagina during delivery is inevitably attended by muscle injury... Never, however do the organs resume their original integrity of form and function." While noting the equal occurrence of pelvic floor muscle weakness in women who have not had children, in 1956 he stated that, "the stretching process of childbirth... is merely a precipitating factor and not the primary cause of pelvic floor muscle weakness", the lack of exercise and consequent muscle atrophy is. Optimistically, he noted that, "after having been stretched over a wider range than any other muscle (the pelvic floor muscles) can regain physiological tension and are able to recover their function after many years of disuse and partial atrophy". He proclaimed, "... it is not enough merely to keep a woman alive; it is important to preserve function... ,the relaxation of the vaginal outlet (and muscle responsible for urinary control, pelvic organ support, and sexual response) is caused by a lack of tone of the (pelvic floor) muscles".

Prior to world War II the accepted treatment of injured or weakened muscles was prolonged rest and passive exercise. According to a war summary, when treating disabled veterans, it was found that, "in the preservation or restoration of muscle function nothing is more fundamental than the frequent repetition of correctly guided exercises... carried out against progressively increasing resistance, since muscles increase in strength in direct proportion to the demands placed on them".

Dr. Kegel further observed that in a large series of women the same percentage of women who had not born children as those who had suffered symptoms of pelvic discomfort, bladder dysfunction and sexual disturbances. He concluded that for all women, "early pelvic floor muscle education and resistive exercise offer new hope in lasting relief".

The need for some method by which the pelvic floor muscles may be preserved and developed has long been recognized. Hippocrates tried oil injection, hot douches and salves, Soranus (110AD) attempted support with the hand. Kegel tried the cumbersome, awkward curved spatula retained perineometer in 1948. Finally in 2000 the anatomically correct, self-retaining, easy-to-use progressive resistance exerciser: GyneFlex.

Today, most people refer to the vaginal squeeze, hold, and release exercises as Kegel's exercise. Dr. Kegel's perineometer (pictured above) which gave resistance to this exercise and made it work has long been forgotten.

Modern Kegel's are non-resistance isometric exercise. Something Dr. Kegel never believed in or published about.

Only GyneFlex is medically designed to offer the truly effective resistance vaginal exercise which was Dr. Kegel's vision and life work.

GyneFlex is to vaginal muscle exercise (Kegels) what dumbells are to arm curls.

In 1956 Dr. Kegel said, "In genital relaxation the muscles sag like an old hammock". In 2000 there is a simple effect way to both prevent and treat this potential problem affecting every woman.
