INNOVO is a non-invasive type of neuromuscular electrical stimulation device (NMES). It is a type of cycling shorts that are worn for half an hour in different positions at home (lying, sitting or standing). The device should be used five days a week for 12 weeks. The device contracts and relaxes the pelvic floor muscles correctly, 180 times in the half hour session and the pelvic nerves are stimulated as well. It gives a comfortable contraction in the buttock area and internally correctly contracts and relaxes weakened pelvic floor muscles to train them and improve their function. IPPM recommends that INNOVO is used under the supervision of your GP or Pelvic Physiotherapist.

INNOVO is a type of neuromuscular electrical stimulation therapy which trains the pelvic floor muscles when they are very weak, and it also stimulates the pelvic nerves. It is an amazingly comfortable therapy with no invasive probes. It is evidence based and was invented by a Professor of Physiotherapy and the product won the Irish Times Med Tech product of the year in 2019. INNOVO can be used along with your pelvic physiotherapy sessions with Aoife in the clinic or by video call. Some insurance cover might be available depending on your policy. Aoife will advise you.
