What does the app do?

The app comes preset with a standard set of exercises, but it can be personalised with a programme set by a specialist physiotherapist. It reminds you when you need to exercise and you can record the number of exercises you've completed. The app has visual and audio features to help you with your programme.

For the app description, go to App website, Google Play, iTunes and for a detailed review, see Reviews.

PROS CONS 

✔ Developed with input from Women’s Health Physiotherapists, uses evidence-based research and is approved by the NHS (public health system in the UK)

✔ Visual and auditory guided pelvic floor exercises. Has a default exercise program with both quick and slow contractions. This can be customised by a physiotherapist.

✔ Exercises are recorded automatically so you can track your progress.

✔ Has reminders

✘  Costs $6.49

✘ A financial grant was received from a drug company, but it was unrestricted, and I could not find any mention of medication.

✘ Can’t export exercise records.

✘ No bladder diary like with the squeezy app for women.

✘ No section on bladder retraining for those with urge incontinence.

✘ It could do with more information, such as information on other treatment options for erectile dysfunction and incontinence.
