Pelvic floor

A strong pelvic floor stabilises the internal organs of the abdominal cavity, makes the body feel stronger and improves posture. It is essentially the power centre of the body. Unfortunately, we tend only to become aware of it when its fundamental tightness declines and it is no longer able to do its job properly. With pelvic floor training at Kieser, you can specifically strengthen this group of muscles within the body.

What is the pelvic floor?

The diaphragm seals the abdominal cavity from above, while the pelvic floor muscles seal it from below. The pelvic floor ranges from the pubic bone to the coccyx, and its sides are defined by the pelvis. It consists of multiple layers of muscle which collectively are about as thick as the palm of your hand and are layered over one another in the shape of a funnel. This is how the pelvic floor keeps the abdominal organs (intestines, rectum, bladder, genitals) in position.

How does the machine work?

The heart of the machine is a pressure sensor, which is incorporated horizontally into the seat. The "sensor tube" detects the intensity of the contraction of the pelvic floor muscles and visualises them on the screen of the machine, so that the training progress becomes visible.

The training consists of a sequence of muscle contractions whose intensity is determined individually before each workout. You sit on the sensor tube and as soon as the pelvic floor is tense, a small dot moves on the screen. By tensing and relaxation you drive with the point along a line so you always have the control of tensing the right muscles.
