10 Best Pelvic Floor Exerciser UK

Your pelvic floor muscles, or the string of muscles supporting your womb, bladder, and bowels, are responsible for keeping your bladder closed. After giving birth, these muscles weaken, causing them to lose their ability to prevent bladder leakage.

If you’ve only heard of pelvic floor exercises now and you’ve already given birth, don’t worry. You can still start engaging in some pelvic floor exercises. There are now several devices that help you improve your pelvic floor muscles. 

We’ve curated a list of 11 of the best pelvic floor exercisers after childbirth below.

 

Things to Consider When Buying Pelvic Floor Exercisers

We encourage you to read through and consider the following first before purchasing pelvic floor exercisers. 

 

How soon after childbirth should you start pelvic floor exercises?

According to the NHS, it is safe to begin doing pelvic floor exercises right after your delivery. They have, however, suggested that you start with gentle movements that you are comfortable with, and slowly progressing to more vigorous exercises as tolerated.

Ensure that you read the device’s conditions of use before purchasing. Some of them may be used immediately, while some may require you to wait a few weeks before being able to use some.

 

Consult a health practitioner before using a pelvic floor exerciser.

Before using devices that aid pelvic floor strengthening, it is best practice to consult with your health practitioner first. 

 

Common Types of Pelvic Floor Exercisers

  • Electrical stimulators. These devices send low-frequency electrical impulses to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles to contract.
  • Kegel balls.  These are small weighted balls inserted into the vagina to help you contract and relax your pelvic floor muscles efficiently.
  • External non-electric, non-invasive trainers. These are small clip-like equipment tucked under your bottom to support your pelvic and abdominal muscles during exercise.

 

Key features:
  • Patented technology.
  • Four adjustable therapeutic massage modes.
  • Three doctors on customer support.
  • Joy ON Kegel weights app.
Specifications:
Type Kegel balls.
Weight 272 g

Premium Pick

Our overall best pelvic exercisers go to the Kehel Exerciser from Joy ON. The Kehel boasts of patented technology, and are probably the only kegel balls in the market with focus vibration points and an intelligent pressure sensor. The Kehel device itself is waterproof and has a good battery life of up to three hours. 

The accompanying Kehel app allows for a personalized evaluation of your pelvic floor muscles. Also, it has interactive games, making your training a more enjoyable experience. The app, available in English and Spanish versions, doubles as a calendar where you can set up personalized monitoring, training, record your sessions, and encourages you to stay motivated. 

Workouts on the Kehel can be done manually or with the help of the app. There are two massages modes for manual and four massage patterns when used with the app. 

The set comes with a hard copy guide that includes a QuickStart guide, pelvic floor exercises with photos to help beginners, and other exercises suitable for intermediate and advanced users.

Functionality meets style in this high-tech kegel ball design, truly deserving of the top spot on our list.

Key features:
  • Hugged fit wearable shorts design.
  • INNOVO app for iOS.
  • FDA cleared.
  • Hand-held stimulation controller.
Specifications:
Type Stimulator.
Weight 1.9 kg.
Battery Rechargeable.

Premium Pick

If you’re not too keen on sticking things inside your you-know-what, this may be for you. The INNOVO pelvic floor exerciser prides itself on its non-invasive electrical muscle stimulation technology.

INNOVO is a pair of shorts designed to deliver a series of 1980 pelvic floor contractions within a half an hour session. The shorts come in a range of different sizes, from a low hip measurement of 32.5 inches to 52 inches. A handy controller is attached to the shorts to allowing you to take control of the intensity of muscle stimulations.

INNOVO also comes with an app for iOS users that tracks your progress, usage, and improvement over time. The app allows you to set reminders and log your daily mood and comfort levels. 

You can’t use INNOVO if you have:

  • An intrauterine device (IUD) or copper coil in place.
  • Any implanted electronic devices, such as a cardiac pacemaker or a defibrillator.
  • Epilepsy, pregnancy, and heart conditions.
Key features:
  • UK-manufactured.
  • CE marked product.
  • Four variable weights.
  • Physician designed and tested.
Specifications:
Type Kegel balls.
Weight 249 g.
Battery N/A.

Value Pick

Doctors and physiotherapists designed the Aquaflex weighted vaginal cones. The system comes with two vaginal cones accompanied by a set of weights. The cones are made in the UK using high quality, medical-grade, and BPA-free plastic, while the accompanying weights are made of stainless steel material. 

The Aquaflex is intended for the cones to accommodate variable weights, and then inserted into your vagina. Similar to a tampon, the cones have cords attached for easier removal. The idea is that the pelvic floor naturally contracts around the cone upon insertion. As your pelvic floor muscles strengthen, your tolerance will increase and will, therefore, be able to accommodate heavier weights in place.

The Aquaflex system is easy to use and highly effective, which is probably why it still regarded as among the best traditional vaginal weights in the market.

Key features:
  • Award-winning device.
  • Waterproof.
  • Elvie trainer app.
  • 5-minute training sessions.
Specifications:
Type Stimulator.
Weight 322 g.
Battery Rechargeable.

Best app features

The Elvie Trainer wins the best app feature category on our list owing to its award-winning pelvic floor trainer. It comes as a small pebble-shaped pod designed to be inserted just like a tampon. An optional cover comes with the pod, for a comfortable, custom fit.

The device connects to an app on your phone that proactively monitors your pelvic floor exercises. The app is compatible with versions equal to or higher than Android 4.3 or iOS 5. 

Through direct force measurement technology unique to Elvie, the app determines whether you are exercising correctly. It delivers real-time visual feedback for you to improve your technique. Training modes are available for all stages, from beginners to advanced users, and it only takes five minutes to complete one full session, with claims that results are noticeable in just four weeks of use. 

Because it is covered in medical-grade silicone, Elvie is safe to use with an IDU or a coil.

If you have a pelvic health problem, such as a prolapsed pelvis or pelvic pain, consult your health professional first before purchasing an Elvie kit.

Key features:
  • Safety Duration Override.
  • One-Touch Memory.
  • LED Backlit Screen.
  • Four Optional Programmes.
Specifications:
Type Stimulator.
Weight 458 g.
Battery 2 x AA.

Best safety feature

The iTouch Sure Pelvic Floor Exerciser is a vaginal probe used to send your pelvic floor stimulations that work your pelvic floor muscles. It is designed to help you develop your pelvic muscle control while strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. 

The probe comes attached with a battery-operated device that displays the strength of stimulations and helps allows you to fine-tune the same. 

A distinct feature of the iTouch is its safety duration override, which automatically turns off the stimulation after 20 minutes to prevent overwork of your pelvic floor muscles. Hence, it grabs our spot as the best safety device feature.

In saying this, however, because it is an electrical stimulator device, you shouldn’t use the iTouch Sure if you have:

  • A pacemaker in place.
  • Problems with heart rhythm.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Cervical cancer.
Key features:
  • Six increasing colour-coded weights. 
  • Training E-book.
  • Hypoallergenic.
  • Lifetime money-back guarantee.
Specifications:
Type Kegel balls.
Weight 599 g.
Battery N/A.

Best for all skin types

This set of six, colour-coded weights are manufactured using medical-grade, BPA-free, latex-free, phthalate-free, and waterproof silicone, making it perfect for all skin types, hence our best pick in this category. The ergonomic, discretely coloured design of the Ikegel Pelvic Floor Exercise System weights also makes it our choice for the best kegel weight design.  The balls are designed to be hygienically inserted like a tampon and comes with a short cord-like tail for ease of removal.

The six increasing levels of weighted balls make it an ideal option for all pelvic floor exerciser levels – whether you are just learning or are already advanced in your pelvic floor exercise techniques. 

The kit also comes with a storage pouch, allowing you to train anywhere and a free comprehensive e-book to guide you through the entire pelvic floor training experience and keep you motivated.

Key features:
  • UK designed.
  • Six-step programme.
  • Double-sphere design technology.
  • Money-back and lifetime warranty.
Specifications:
Type Kegel balls.
Weight 322 g.
Battery N/A.

Best non-app training programme

The Secret Whispers Pelvic Floor Toner is a UK-designed set of four hypoallergenic and waterproof weighted balls, each with a progressively increasing weight from 15 g to 55 g. 

The different weights are designed to be used in combination with each other to complete a six-step progressive weight programme to achieve optimum pelvic floor strength. This doctor recommended programme sets the Secret Whispers Kegel apart from other Kegel weights, which is why we think it is the best training programme that is independent of an app. 

The kit comes in a magnetic closure box for discrete storing of your Kegel weights. A bonus silk pouch and step-by-step e-Book containing all you need to know about pelvic floor training.

Key features:
  • Five variably weighted cones.
  • Clinically proven and tested.
  • Discreet design.
  • Latex-free.
Specifications:
Type Kegel balls.
Weight 222 g.
Battery N/A.

Best for on-the-go

The LadySystem Kegel system comprises a set of five weights inserted like a tampon. The weights are shaped like a cone to allow the vagina to hold these comfortably. The cone weights range from 5 to 55 g, which you use progressively as tolerated until you reach the heaviest cone.

LadySystem is clinically tested and registered with the UK MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency).

LadySystem comes in a compact, discreet case, allowing you to take it with you anywhere you go. If you are the type who is always on the go, this may just be the best pelvic floor exerciser for you.

  • Simple and compact design.
Specifications:
Type Stimulator.
Weight 159 g.
Battery 2 x AAA.

Best compact electrical stimulator

The sleek, stylish, and compact design of the SensaTone pelvic floor probe and the handheld controller is our pick for the best compact electrical stimulator. The ergonomically designed vaginal probe system is designed to provide bursts of electrical pulses that contract and relax your pelvic floor muscles to strengthen them.

It comes attached in a simple digital device with an LCD allowing you to change from four preset programmes targeted at treating different types of incontinence.

Key features:
  • External non-electric, non-invasive 
  • Ergonomic design.
  • Available in multiple colors.
  • Lightweight and portable.
Specifications:
Type External.
Weight ABS plastic.
Battery 2 x AAA.

Best non-invasive and non-electrical

The Leezo pelvic floor muscle trainer is a non-invasive, non-electric, externally used Kegel training device and is our best non-invasive and non-electrical device on this list. Made of durable and lightweight ABS plastic, you simply position the device below your buttocks when performing pelvic floor exercises to enhance targeted pelvic floor muscle strengthening.

Other than pelvic floor training, it also claims to help tighten your thighs, lower abdomen, and buttocks.
