The Magneto Stym, a device for Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) is an effective alternative to established electrical stimulation methods with many advantages for rehabilitation. Magnetic fields are less painful, allow deep penetration into heterogeneous biological tissue and do not require skin contact.
FMS does not stimulate pain nerves on the skin surface and is therefore more pleasant than classic electrical stimulation. Magnetic fields pass through clothes, tissue and bone on the way to otherwise inaccessible areas. FMS treatment increases the strength and endurance of the muscles.
The Magneto Stym, standardly equipped with a chair, is a new, effective incontinence treatment method using FMS for treatment of the pelvic floor. The pulsed magnetic field generated by the device causes the muscles of the pelvic floor to contract without the need for any electrodes. It can be used with both women and men, for all types of urinary and faecal incontinence, for faster rehabilitation after surgery or birth, and even for some sexual dysfunctions or chronic pain in the pelvis or lower back. Very effective for postpartum strengthening of pelvic floor muscles. Additionally, the patient learns how to properly perform exercises that strengthen the muscles.
The Magneto Stym device can be upgraded for treatment of a large range of indications, using a hand-held applicator (see below and see Tesla Stym).
