Urinary incontinence is an incredibly common health condition which affects around 200 million people around the world and can be caused by a number of different things. EMSELLA is a revolutionary new treatment that has been created to help tighten the muscles in the pelvic floor and actively treat urinary incontinence.
It’s a highly effective treatment for incontinence that is clinically proven to be completely safe, and because it works by just sitting on a chair you don’t need to undress or undergo any intimate procedures, and has 95% satisfaction rating among those who have used it.

What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the medical wording for the loss of control of the bladder, and this loss of control results in bladder leakage that is involuntary or uncontrollable. There are five different kinds of urinary incontinence, which are;
- Urge incontinence
- Stress incontinence
- Mixed incontinence
- Overflow incontinence
- Functional incontinence
Urge incontinence is the form of incontinence that refers to the sudden urge to urinate, without any warning and often without enough time to get to the bathroom.
Stress incontinence happens when the bladder leaks as a result of stress or pressure being placed on the bladder from things such as sneezing or coughing.
Mixed incontinence is a combination of both urge incontinence and stress incontinence.
Overflow incontinence is a result of the bladder not being able to entirely empty itself, causing an overflow which leads to bladder leakage.
Functional incontinence is a little bit different and is caused due to a mental or physical impairment hindering the ability to urinate correctly, for example somebody who has arthritis having trouble with removing their pants before urinating.
How can EMSELLA help with urinary incontinence?
Generally, performing pelvic floor exercises would be the first step to helping with incontinence, but problems can still arise with incontinence when the exercises are stopped or something such as the birth of a child causes further leakage issues.
The EMSELLA treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive way to treat incontinence that has been caused by a weakened pelvic floor. The chair device utilises HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic) waves to trigger supramaximal contractions within the pelvic floor, which is performed twice a week for three weeks. These contractions across the 30 minute treatment period work out as the equivalent of doing over 10,000 Kegels.
Part way through I really did wonder if it was making much difference but after that I really concentrated on correct positioning and looking out for small changes. What I would say is don’t rush to get appointments too close together, allow the muscles to recover they are having an incredible workout.
This is an investment but it has fundamentally changed things for me and I would recommend the team at Nantwich clinic to take you on this journey, they are all incredibly welcoming and the treatment is simple and truly effective.
The EMSELLA chair is used to specifically target the weakened muscles within the pelvic floor, and the stimulation is proven to improve bladder control and reduce urinary incontinence. Approximately 95% of patients who undergo treatment see an improvement to their bladder leakage.
After undergoing an EMSELLA treatment to fight the symptoms of urinary incontinence, the results should be present for anywhere up to around 6 – 12 months and after that point, you can opt to undergo individual maintenance treatments to retain all of the benefits from the EMSELLA treatment.
Results can be seen between 3 – 6 months after the last treatment, depending upon the severity of the condition. If your condition is severe, it may be recommended to take 2 courses back to back over a 6 week period, with a view to a further course 6 months following.
The treatment also encourages muscle memory, meaning the patient should be in a position whereby they can begin to perform pelvic floor exercises again themselves, giving them control back again.
