EPI•NO is clinically proven to reduce the chances of tearing and episiotomy during delivery by gently exercising and training the perineum, while strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
EPI•NO training is based on the principle that the human body performs more efficiently when trained for a specific event.
Would you run a marathon or launch onto the ski slopes without first stretching and exercising the muscles you will use?
Natural Childbirth is another physical event. It requires training and preparation of the muscles and tissue to facilitate control, and to avoid the risk of perineal injuries.
Depending on the practice in the country where you live, up to two-thirds of all mothers suffer a spontaneous tear of the perineum or require an episiotomy. The consequence of this perineal damage can be painful, and can result in long-term impairment of your quality of life. Clinically tested and suitable for use from the 37th week of pregnancy, the EPI•NO trainer helps to reduce the risk of perineal tearing and episiotomy during childbirth.
