The science behind the revolutionary EMSella chair

BTL EMSELLA - Body Lipo Lincoln treatment for incontinence

BTL EMSELLA utilizes High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®) to cause deep pelvic floor muscles stimulation and restoration of the neuromuscular control.

Key effectiveness is based on focused electromagnetic energy, in-depth penetration and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area.

A single BTL EMSELLA session brings thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important in muscle re-education of incontinent patients.

The EMSella chair was designed in the USA and is distributed in the UK by award-winning medical manufacturers BTL Aesthetics.

It treats stress urinary incontinence, which affects 30-40% of post-partum and menopausal women in the UK* by using HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Field) electromagnetic energy to stimulate and restore the pelvic floor muscle without the need for invasive surgery.

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is an involuntary leakage of urine as a result of a weak pelvic floor.

Stress urinary incontinence is when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure such as when you jump, laugh, cough or sneeze.

Urge incontinence is when you feel a sudden intense urge to pass urine or you can’t quite hold on like your used to.


Clinical studies show 95% satisfaction rate with 67% of those women completely dry

What is EMsella?

EMsella is a chair that uses high-intensity electromagnetic field to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor. This is similar to an MRI. The technology is known as High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology (HIFEM) and it causes deep pelvic floor muscles stimulation.

Who does this work for?

The treatment is ideal for women with stress incontinence (leak with cough or movement) or urge incontinence (leak after you cannot suppress the urge to urinate). Stress incontinence is most commonly caused by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full.

How effective is the treatment?

In as few as 3 weeks, patients strongly agree their quality of life improved by 95%. With 67% of these women being completely dry and the results were maintained at a 6-month follow-up.

How does the treatment work?

EMsella is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for stress or urge urinary incontinence. Patients sit comfortably in a chair fly clothed. The chair focuses on targeted tissue in the pelvis. Muscles are strengthened, restoring the support for the pelvic organs. Incontinence decreases, In addition, sexual satisfaction is increased.

Can Kegel exercises do the same thing?

EMsella is powerful. In fact, during one short 28-minute treatment, EMsella will provoke over 11,000 contractions, which is equivalent to performing over 11,000 Kegel exercises!

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment is not painful. You can feel a sensation during the procedure. There is no downtime afterwards. You can come during lunch break, eat and have a treatment!

How long does the treatments take?
