The Continence Foundation of Australia has developed a free, safe-exercise app to both help prevent incontinence and enable people experiencing problems to continue to exercise without further straining their pelvic floor or suffer embarrassing accidents.
The Pelvic Floor First app has three customised workouts for people of all fitness levels and pelvic floor strength. The wide range of exercises have been designed by physiotherapist and fitness leader Lisa Westlake to ensure people enjoy the benefits of a total-body workout that protects their pelvic floor muscles.
The free app is based on the Continence Foundation of Australia's Pelvic Floor First website. It is available to download for iPhones and iPads through the App Store. The app is also available for Androids from Google Play.
Some important tips:
Given the comprehensive nature of the app, with video, audio and photographic instructions, it will require a wireless internet connection to initially download. However, once this is done, we are confident you will find the app provides you with all the information you need to enjoy a complete workout while staying pelvic-floor safe.
Please note when searching for the app on an iPad select "iPhone only" from the top of the screen.
