Electrical Vibrations

Using MyKORI for pelvic floor & Kegel training

Using MyKORI

For stronger pelvic floor muscle contraction use My KORI internally, but you will still gain excellent results sitting on a chair fully clothed with my KORI placed lengthways between your legs in the area between your anus and vagina (perineum).

Pelvic floor exercises can be performed either laying down comfortably on your bed or sofa, sitting on an upright chair, standing either at the kitchen sink while washing up, or in a cue at the supermarket. It is a good idea to get into a regular routine throughout the day, be constantly aware of your pelvic floor while performing your usual activities of daily living, especially when lifting or doing anything strenuous and more physically demanding.

You could put place smiley faces or star sicker around the house to remind you to ‘Squeeze’ more often, or mark off a calendar every time you complete a pelvic floor workout. I personally have stickers on the computer screen, bed side table, on picture frames, the dashboard of the car and on my phone.

However you choose to exercises is fine, you may wish to set yourself time away from your usual routines to just concentrate on your pelvic floor away from all distractions and do all the exercise in one sitting.

How to work out the right pattern of vibrations for you

When you are sitting comfortably gently squeeze your pelvic floor muscles by contracting the muscles of your anus first (as if you are holding in a poo), then pull the contraction around to your vagina lifting up everything up in between along the perineum. Hold the muscle contraction until you are either, no longer aware of the contraction, or you feel the contraction relax. Count how many seconds you can hold the contraction for. Rest for a few seconds then try again and see if you can comfortably perform 5 contractions of the same duration in a row. I have seen many women with urinary incontinence that will only have a 2-3 second ability to contract, so no cheating start at a realistic place.

Younger women may be able to hold their pelvic floor muscle for comfortably for 10-12 seconds but by the time we are post-partum, peri-menopausal, or post-menopausal it is unrealistic to aim so high to begin with. If we think we are holding our pelvic floor muscles for longer YOU ARE PROBABLY NOT DOING IT RIGHT! You must be able to perform 100 perfect contractions at the lower level holds patterns before moving on to the next pattern.

Take your time when progressing from one pattern to the next and do not move onto the next stage until you master the last one.

It is just as important to have pelvic floor muscles that can relax as it is for the to be strong

To select the resistance training programme you wish to squeeze along to:
• Press and hold the button for 3 seconds. When the bullet vibrates briefly, it is now in standby mode.
• Once in the standby mode you must press the button again quickly to select the range of hold vibrations and release pauses for the training programme you wish to perform.

When in the standby mode press the button once for pattern one.
Pattern one cycles through the following squeeze vibrations & relaxing pauses:
1 second constant vibration followed by a 2 second pause
3 second constant vibration followed by a 2 second pause

(Repeating Cycle)

When in the standby mode press the button twice for pattern two.
Pattern two cycles through the following squeeze vibrations & relaxing pauses:
1 second constant vibration followed by a 2 second pause
6 second constant vibration followed by a 2 second pause

(Repeating Cycle)

When in the standby mode press the button three times for pattern three.
Pattern three cycles through the following squeeze vibrations & relaxing pauses:
1 second constant vibration followed by a 2 second pause
9 second constant vibration followed by a 2 second pause

(Repeating Cycle)

You can change the pattern mid-cycle by pressing the button again to choose the cycle you require. Please note, if you select a new pattern during a cycle it will not start until the cycle has finished.

• Press and hold for 3 seconds to turn off.
Start with the 3 second hold cycle and build up to the 9 second holds, build your pelvic floor strength up gradually until you reach your goal.

TROUBLESHOOTING Sometimes the bullet with need time to rest, use the classic take the battery out and put it back in again making sure the lid is on tightly.
