Pelvic Tech has revolutionized the pelvic device distribution industry. Being that we are a company run by Pelvic Health Clinicians, we feel strongly about making sure that clients/patients are able to get the best and most appropriate devices- with a clear and thorough knowledge of how to use them. By helping people take control of their own health and recovery, they will work that much harder to heal and restore their own pelvic floor functioning.
The devices that are presented throughout Pelvic Tech are designed to decrease incontinence, pain, and poor pelvic muscle coordination – while improving sexual health. Sex is an ADL (Activity of Daily Living), and anyone who wishes to participate in sexual activities should be able to- despite physical limitations.
While many of the devices that you see at Pelvic Tech can be directly related to sexual health, they also function as tools to decrease pelvic muscle dysfunction. In many situations, there are strategies and devices to assist with incontinence (both urinary and fecal) and pelvic pain. Once those symptoms have improved, you will notice a change in your sexual health.
