Gold coast businesswomen launch new medical device to help prevent and treat urinary incontinence

Nadia DuensingTwo Gold Coast businesswomen have launched a new life changing medical device that will help Australian women suffering from urinary incontinence. Statistics show that there are around 4.2 million Australians aged 15 years and over living in the community with urinary incontinence and that 1 in 3 women suffer varying degrees of incontinence. Nadia Duensing and Barbara Simpson, the directors of Options for Health Australia, are dedicated to helping improve the lives of the millions of women suffering from incontinence in silence. Urinary incontinence is one of the most common problems associated with a weak pelvic floor. They have launched a new product, Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret, which can effectively yet comfortably and discreetly strengthen the female pelvic floor muscles.  The pelvic floor encompasses the bladder, uterus and rectum. It plays an important role in the storage and evacuation of urine and stool. “We want to radically change the incorrect belief that incontinence is a normal part of ageing. It is never too late to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor,” Ms Duensing said. Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret is listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods as a Class 1 Medical Device. This device is manufactured in Germany to the highest award winning standards. The material used in the manufacture is Silikomed, which has been clinically and dermatologically tested and is BPA free. The directors of Options for Health Australia will launch Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret in Australia to coincide with World Continence Week (June 23-29, 2014). Ms Duensing said the theme of this year’s World Continence Week is ‘Managing the Mother Load’. This theme will target women who are planning a pregnancy and those who have had their baby, promoting greater awareness of the risk of incontinence and preventative and treatment strategies. “Many mothers commence an exercise program to regain their pre-pregnant figure, but the pelvic floor is unseen and forgotten until it is too late,” she said. “Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret may strengthen the vaginal muscles prior to pregnancy and are ideal for postnatal exercises following pregnancy.” A common misconception is that older women only suffer form urinary incontinence. In fact, urinary incontinence is a health issue that affects women of all ages. After using Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret, Gold Coast resident Margaret Buring found relief within a very short period of time. “I was staggered that within a week of using it that I found that I could hold on. I think the more it’s used the better it works. By consistent use of Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret I no longer have that problem of urinary incontinence. I have complete control.” For more information or to purchase Pelvic Floor Assist MEDIballs secret, visit www.pelvicfloorassist.com.au
