How effective is Elvie?
Chiaro undertook lots of clinical testing before releasing Elvie. They say: “All our product development was guided by our scientific advisory group including a number of well known researchers in biofeedback and pelvic floor exercise such as Dr. Rufus Cartwright, Imperial College; Prof. Linda McLean, University of Ottawa and Dr. Jeroen Bergmann, Oxford University. Multiple studies show that giving women real time biofeedback is one of the most effective methods for Kegel exercises with direct force measurement being the gold standard. Elvie is the first product for women that measures force directly and offers a significant advance over existing products that rely on air pressure changes and are thus unreliable”.
