Easy to use and position correctly
The Efemia Bladder Support is simple to insert, remove and use. Thanks to its design and material you can easily start using the product in the comfort of your own home, without any assistance from health care professionals. You can use the product occasionally or daily for three months.
The device is inserted into the vagina until the handle rests tight up against the pubic bone/perineum and the support rings are completely through the vaginal opening, just like a tampon. The labia then cover the handle.
When pressure is placed on the bladder the mid-urethra is pushed lightly against Efemia’s support rings, making it bend so leakage is reduced or stops altogether.
Support rings - The upper part consists of two support rings. These support the mid-urethra through the front vaginal wall when there is a sudden increase in pressure on the abdomen and bladder. Mid-section - When there is a sudden increase in intra-abdominal pressure, the mid-section ensures there is sufficient support in the rings. It also ensures that the rings are positioned against the mid-urethra. Thanks to its triangular shape, it can be both thin and remain stable. Handle - The handle remains outside the body. It keeps the device in place and makes it easier to remove
