Kegel8® Ultra 20 Pelvic Floor Exerciser / Toner

£171.99

Kegel8 are long-established in the pelvic floor exerciser game and tend to pop up everywhere. They have a range of pelvic toners that can be confusing to tell apart from each other, because there are only subtle differences between them.

Essentially they way they differ is in the probe that accompany the main electronic unit. This main unit is what allows you to control the settings of the probe and choose specific pelvic floor exercises.

The Kegel8 Ultra 20 Pelvic floor exerciser comes with the rather blingy Gold Glide Probe, which has the dubious honour of being ‘the most powerful vaginal probe on the market today’ according to Kegel8. The Ultra 20 is targeted at bladder weakness and prolapse but has 20 programmes that cover a wide range of pelvic floor issues. Read full review below.

The probe

The Kegel8 Ultra 20 pelvic floor exerciser sports two gold-plated electrodes, which eliminate nickel intolerance and improve stimulation. It is also the only probe to deal with prolapse and low cervix.

The probe is the latest to be released by Kegel 8 and has a fair few advantages over its predecessors. They’ve eliminated the protruding stem, which can make seated pelvic floor exercises uncomfortable (and seated pelvic floor exercises are actually much better for your posture and proven to give better results).

The two electrodes are both positioned to stimulate the back part of the pelvic floor, which is where the majority of the muscles are positioned.

It’s also lightweight, which means that when you’re standing up, the Gold Glide will stay perfectly in place. It has a ‘scoop’ side, which should be facing downwards when inserted. This scoop offers support while you exercise if you have prolapse.

The programmes

The Kegel8 Ultra 20 pelvic floor exerciser can be used to cure bladder weakness and incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse and lack of sexual sensation.

There are 20 clinically-proven programmes to choose from, all of which strengthen the pelvic floor muscles in subtly different ways. We tested one of the ‘pelvic pain’ programmes over a 12 week period and the effects were pretty astonishing.

Having read the blurb beforehand about how the Kegel8 Ultra 20 blocks the pain signals being sent to the brain and stimulates the release of endorphins for natural pain relief, it all seemed a little far-fetched. But how wrong we were, within only 3 weeks the post-childbirth pelvic pain was subsiding, when it had been around for months previously.

Conclusion

Overall, the unique Gold Glide probe that comes with the Kegel8 Ultra 20 Pelvic floor exerciser is more comfortable and lightweight than the other Kegel8 probes (namely the Pelviline, Comfort and the Periform Plus), and whilst it is a product targeted at bladder weakness and prolapse, in reality it does the full works and will have your pelvic floor fighting fit in a matter of weeks.
