There’s now a smart kegel women can use that pairs with their phones known as kGoal. The interactive training system exercises the pelvic floor in women.
kGoal was designed to be used by various body types and anatomies. During testing, kGoal was found to be comfortable for use in 95 percent of the women tested. Arielle Duhaime-Ross who wrote a review after using it herself, fell into the 5 percent that found it uncomfortable. In her article she said not only did it not fit, but it hurt as well.
While kGoal is compatible with Android and iOS devices, according to the official website it does need “Bluetooth 4.0 capability and iOS v8 or Android v4.3 or newer as the operating system.”
The physical features include real time, tactile biofeedback, a personal workout guide, performance tracker and comfortable material, known as silicone, made to mold itself to you.
The real time feature is used through touch and sight and helps you make sure you’re using it correctly. The workout guide offers different exercise plans best suited for the user and her skill. The performance tracker can measure and keep information like endurance, completed exercises, exercise times and muscle strength.
This device can be used by pregnant women, but the makers of kGoal recommend talking with your doctor before using. It weighs 3 ounces and is splash resistant for an easier clean. Customers receive a one-year warranty, and battery life is about two hours at least, but that depends on usage. It only takes one and a half hours to charge and includes a USB charge cable. It costs $149.
Kegels help women exercise important muscles in their nether regions that support the womb, the bladder, and the bowels. If these muscles are weak there is a greater chance of being unable to control your bowels and bladder.
It’s possible to strengthen these muscles without a device at all, but some women can’t tell if they are doing the exercises right or wrong and this device makes things more clear and easy. If you want to strengthen your muscles in your lady parts and want to keep track of your progress with some help getting there, then maybe you should give kGoal a try.You know, after you save up cause college women be broke.
