Emsella Pelvic Floor Trainer Chair

The Emsella Pelvic Floor Trainer Chair treatment is available at Dr Novikova’s practice in Cape Town and in Johannesburg for the treatment of urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity in women.

  • Do you experience urine leakage when performing physical activity such as jumping, laughing, coughing?
  • Do you sometimes feel like something is falling out of your vagina?
  • Do you experience a sensation of looseness in your vagina?

BTL Emsella is designed to strengthen pelvic muscles and reduce incontinence without drugs or surgery.

Benefits of Emsella include:

  • Emsella patients experience noticeable relief from stress incontinence and/or hyperactive bladder
  • Enhanced sensation in the pelvic area
  • Treats entire pelvic floor area in a 28-minute session!
  • Non-invasive and non-surgical
  • No recovery or downtime needed
  • Remain fully clothed during treatment

A single 28-minute session results in 11,200 pelvic floor muscle contractions which has the effect of performing the same number of Kegel exercises

How does it work?

The main effectiveness of the emsella pelvic floor trainer chair treatment is based on focused electromagnetic energy.

A single session of Emsella treatment induces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions – these are extremely important in the muscle re-education of inconsistent patients.


If you answered YES to any of these questions, then we have the solution for you!

The BTL Emsella Chair is an FDA-cleared device for the treatment of urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity. The Emsella uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field to activate motor neurons located in the pelvic floor. This pelvic floor trainer is a revolutionary alternative to the commonly recommended ‘Kegal’ exercises.

How does it work?

This non-invasive, lunchtime treatment penetrates targeted pelvic floor tissue and stimulates muscles to build strength and restore support for pelvic organs. The Emsella does all the work, initiating intensive pelvic floor exercises through 11,200 muscle contractions in just 28 minutes. Stronger pelvic floor muscles result in a tighter vaginal wall and decrease in urinary incontinence. With dramatic results that are immediate and on-going, the Emsella offers a solution to debilitating issues without needing to undergo surgery or any other invasive treatment.

How long is a session?

A treatment session with the Emsella takes around 30 minutes. Some improvement of symptoms is expected from the very first session, though we advise 2 treatments a week for 3 weeks (6 in total) for the best results. Most patients report no discomfort during the treatment while some report mild, tolerable contractions. These contractions have the effect of the same number of pelvic exercises, with no effort required from the patient. The Emsella is a walk-in walk-out procedure with no downtime and the patient remains fully clothed and able to resume normal activity immediately.
