Title: (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR EXAMINING AND CURING URINARY INCONTINENCE, AND FOR EXERCISING BIO-FEEDBACK OF WOMEN VAGINA MUSCLES
Abstract:
(EN) Provided is an apparatus for examining and curing urinary incontinence and exercising the pelvic floor muscles and vaginal muscles using bio-feedback including a controller main body, a probe (1000), and a bio-feedback device. The probe includes: an insert frame (1000) extending in a longitudinal direction thereof; an insert expansion part (2000) surrounding adjacent to a front end of the insert frame ( 1 000) and expandable therearound; an air supply path (3000) connected to the interior of the insert expansion part (2000) to supply air; a handle (4000) engaged with the insert frame (1000); a fixing means (5000) for fixing the insert expansion part (2000) to supply air; a handle (4000); a valve installed at the air supply path (3000); and a PTC ceramic heater (1600) and a vibration motor (1700) installed at the insert frame (1000). An elastic member (2200) includes a magnet (1800), an insertion depth adjustment part (4700), and leg support parts (4800) installed at the insertion depth adjustment part (4700). The bio-feedback device includes a sound generating means (7000), and an image display means (8000). The main body includes a controller (9000) for controlling each component, a motorized air pump, an air flow detection sensor, a pressure detection senor, a spring air cylinder, a solenoid air injection valve, an air tank, etc. Therefore, it is possible for a user to readily perform examination and treatment of urinary incontinence and pelvicfloor muscles (vagina muscle) reinforcement exercise using bio- feedback.
