NeoControl is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy for the treatment of incontinence. For patients suffering from incontinence caused by a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, NeoControl can offer unique therapeutic benefits. NeoControl exercises all the muscles of the pelvic floor to rebuild strength and endurance, re-establishing bladder control.
The therapy is completely painless. Nothing other than the chair ever touches you. You'll feel a small vibration or tapping while sitting in the chair. You'll even be able to feel your pelvic floor muscles contracting. After the therapy, your muscles may feel a little sore, but it is not much different that a light work-out.
How it works:
NeoControl is based on a revolutionary new technology called Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation (ExMI). This FDA cleared technology produces highly focused pulsing magnetic fields. You sit fully clothed in a comfortable chair, allowing the therapeutic fields to be easily aimed at the muscles of the pelvic floor that control continence. These muscles contract and relax with each magnetic pulse, exercising them just as you would with Kegel exercises. You simply sit and relax.
The painless treatments take from 20 to 30 minutes and are usually done twice a week. A complete course of treatment may take 8 weeks or more, depending on the condition of the pelvic floor muscles when therapy is started.

NeoControl Compared to Non-Surgical Therapies:
Both Kegel exercises and Kegels enhanced with biofeedback require you to actively work at isolating your pelvic floor muscles and master contracting them. Plus, you must do this regularly and correctly to gain clinical benefit. NeoControl on the other hand, requires no participation. It does all the work for you and exercises the muscles more completely than you could on your own.
