High-Intensity Electromagnetic Muscle Training
The CMSlim™ HIPEX treatment is a next-generation HI-EMT (High-Intensity Electromagnetic Muscle Training) medical device targeted to increase pelvic floor muscle tone and bladder control in those who suffer from stress incontinence. The HIPEX™ Chair is specially designed for safe pelvic floor muscle stimulation. It uses a specific range of electromagnetic frequencies that force the pelvic floor muscles to maintain a contracted state for several seconds at a time over a 30-minute treatment and is the equivalent of 30,000 pelvic floor contractions.
Women or men with bladder control problems can experience physical and mental discomfort. HIPEX™ is an excellent solution that can help to improve bladder control and have a better quality of life as bladder control is affected by pelvic muscles. Treatment is available for young or old, male or female. One can sit fully clothed in the chair while the pelvic floor muscles are contracted and tightened to recover bladder function. You will be seated comfortably on our HIPEX chair while the device performs pelvic floor exercises for you.
CMSlim™ HIPEX treatments produces supra-maximal muscle contraction through electromagnetic impulses, which are independent of brain function, at a rapid rate that doesn’t allow for the relaxation phase. Supra-maximal contractions produced by the CMSlim™ device will utilize 100% of the pelvic muscle ability, 100% of the time, which drastically increases the physiological workload required for muscle strength and growth.

Frequently asked questions
Here are the answers to the commonly asked questions.
1. What is Stress incontinence?
Stress incontinence is the most common type of incontinence and can affect both men as well as women. It is also the most common type of incontinence that affects younger women. Stress incontinence occurs when pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder and urethra, weaken and put pressure on the bladder and urethra to work harder. With stress incontinence, everyday actions that use the pelvic floor muscles, such as coughing, sneezing, or laughing, can cause you to leak urine. Sudden movements and physical activity can also cause you to leak urine.
2. How many sessions are required to get results?
You will require an initial course of 8 treatments over a 4-week period. It is advised that you maintain the muscle tone of your pelvic floor with single treatments every 2-3 months.
Many patients will feel an improvement in pelvic muscle strength and bladder control after just one treatment; however, you will notice the best results around a month after the initial course of 8 treatments.
3. Is the treatment painfull?
Most would describe the treatment as unusual but pleasant and is certainly not described as painful. You will not have control of the muscle contractions as they will be involuntarily stimulated by the HI-EMT pulse. The intensity of the treatment is gradually built throughout the treatment, and each treatment program integrates a stretching, warm-up and cool-down exercise so as to reduce any muscle fatigue or discomfort.
4. Is there any side-effects?
The possible side effects are very mild in nature, such as a tight internal sensation. It is advised to avoid exercise for 24 hours following a CMSlim™ HIPEX treatment.
