NeoControl® Pelvic Floor Therapy System is a non-surgical therapy for the treatment of stress, urge, and mixed incontinence in women. NeoControl exercises all of the muscles of the pelvic floor to rebuild strength and endurance, restoring bladder control. The technology that makes this treatment possible is Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation, or ExMI™ for short. Cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June of 1998, NeoControl is the first product to utilize ExMI™. ExMI™ technology produces highly focused pulsed magnetic fields. To receive treatment, patients simply sit in a chair that allows the therapeutic fields to be easily aimed at the muscles of the pelvic floor that control continence. The pelvic floor muscles contract and relax with each magnetic pulse, exercising them like any other muscle in the body. The process is similar to Kegel exercises for the pelvic floor. While conventional Kegel exercises enhanced by biofeedback techniques can help to restore continence, women often do the exercises incorrectly, incompletely or neglect to do them at all. With NeoControl, the system performs the exercises for the patient, and it performs them more completely and effectively than the patient could do on their own. No active participation by the patie
