The Life-care gold-plated vaginal electrode is a comfortable, internal vaginal electrode with side -positioned gold-plated contact plates, designed to make contact with the levator ani (deep layer of pelvic floor muscles) on the right and left sides when inserted in the vagina.
Life-care gold-plated vaginal electrode is suitable for use with the Pericalm , Pelvitone Continence and TENS electrical stimulation devices.
It can also be used with the Peritone and Simplex EMG biofeedback devices.
Vaginal Insertion and Use:
- Usually easiest lying on your back with knees bent comfortably but can be inserted and used in side lying
- For best contact with the muscles to be stimulated, the electrode plates should be facing your hips (ie left and right) not your tailbone and pubic bone unless advised by your treating health professional.
Only insert the body of the electrode, the flange at the end where the leads exit the electrode MUST remain outside the vagina.
- During a contraction of the pelvic floor muscles when the stimulation machine is active if you have the biofeedback stick attached, it will move downwards
- The sensation should be a strong buzzing type sensation, but not painful. It may take you a few sessions to get used to the feeling before you can turn it up to elicit a contraction.
- Even without a contraction being elicited initially, the sensory input of the stimuation will help to reconnect your pelvic floor with the sensory and motor cortexes in the brain.
- You can also use the electrode as a biofeedback tool when not attached to a stimulation machine- just insert as above and practise pelvic floor contractions - the indicator stick should move downwards if doing correct action.
Care of your electrode:
- Please handle your electrode with care, the wires in the leads are delicate.
- Insert and remove via the flange, NOT the leads
- DO NOT wrap the leads around the electrode when storing
- Clean your electrode before and after each use with warm soapy water. Let it dry and return it to its plastic bag and store in a safe dry place.
The Life-care vaginal electrode is designed for single person use and should not be autoclaved. It is manufactured from medical grade materials but not in guaranteed sterile conditions and we therefore recommend cleaning before initial use.
Do not use if pregnant, during your period, or if you have a vaginal infection.
Before using electrical stimulation for the pelvic floor check here for further contraindications.
