The Kegelmaster is an exercise device, just like a jump-rope, a set of dumbbells, or one of those huge resistance machines we see at the gym.
The late-night infomercials tell us everything gets better with exercise, and by golly, it's true! What they don't tell us is that in order to receive the most benefit from a workout or exercise routine, the exercises not only have to be done regularly, they need to be done correctly. That is where the Kegelmaster helps. Our bodies are remarkable devices. Just consider the way we are put together. Our bones support everything, and the skin covers everything, but what really holds us together is our muscles. A set of muscles that we depend upon greatly are those of the pelvic floor. One of the most important things that the pelvic floor muscles do for us is to control the flow of urine. As our kidneys remove the waste liquid from our bloodstream, the liquid is stored in the bladder. If the bladder is partially filled, the pelvic floor muscles hold our urethra shut until we can safely void. Then they relax and the urine will flow. The pelvic floor muscles may weaken over time for various reasons, either through trauma due to surgical procedures, childbirth, or even the aging process. When these muscles weaken, they may fail to stop the flow of urine in times of stress
