Here at Style Cartel we don't believe in taboo. We want to break all taboos around us because they are all part of our lives and we shouldn't pretend they done exist. Sex, vaginas, relationships, IVF and single parenting...Let's be proud of who we are and what we stand for. That's why we love the Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer, which helps to improve women's lives around the world. And who founded the product...a woman of course!
Founded in 2013, British femtech brand Elvie is an award-winning company that is dedicated to improving women’s lives through smarter technology. Women have been underserved by technology, despite appreciating good design as much as anyone else. There are unique challenges that face women, from puberty and periods to pregnancy and menopause, that disruptive technology has the potential to transform, inform and improve. Elvie is disrupting this space. Finally, Elvie is pushing forward conversations around women’s issues and lifting the taboo around women’s bodies.
Elvie Trainer is an award-winning pelvic floor trainer recommended by more than 1,000 health professionals including physiotherapists, obstetricians and fitness experts. Elvie Trainer is the world's smallest and smartest Kegel trainer. Placed inside the vagina, Elvie Trainer walks the user through a series of five-minute workouts, helping you train by gamifying your muscle contractions. As you squeeze, the gemstone displayed on screen lifts in real-time with the contractions allowing you to visualise the exercise.
Using cutting-edge patented technology, Elvie Trainer directly measures force and motion in a unique way, unlike other Kegel trainers on the market. 30% of women push down when doing their Kegels, which can lead to damage. Elvie Trainer can detect incorrect contraction, alert the user to help them to improve their technique. Some users report results in as little as four weeks. I can already feel the difference after just a couple of weeks.
