Pelvic Floor Safe Exercise app
The Continence Foundation of Australia has developed a free, safe-exercise app to both help prevent incontinence and enable people experiencing problems to continue to exercise without further straining their pelvic floor or suffer embarrassing accidents.
The Pelvic Floor First app has three customised workouts for people of all fitness levels and pelvic floor strength. The wide range of exercises have been designed by physiotherapist and fitness leader Lisa Westlake to ensure people enjoy the benefits of a total-body workout that protects their pelvic floor muscles.
App features include:
- Instructional videos and audio for all workouts
- Detailed pictures and instructions for each exercise
- Pelvic floor muscle exercise guide
- Ability to save favourite exercises for personalised workouts
- Links to useful websites to learn more about your pelvic floor
The free app is based on the Continence Foundation of Australia's Pelvic Floor First website pelvicfloorfirst.org.au. It is now available to download for iPhones and iPads through the App Store. The app is also available for Androids from Google Play.
Please note that given the comprehensive nature of the app, with video, audio and photographic instructions, it will require a wireless internet connection to initially download. However, once this is done, we are confident you will find the app provides you with all the information you need to enjoy a complete workout while staying pelvic-floor safe.
Please note when searching for the app on an iPad select "iPhone only" from the top of the screen.
