Femmeze is an innovative device designed to:

  • improve dignity and self-management of a posterior or back wall vaginal prolapse (often called a rectocele).
  • re-align the rectum and re-position the stool to more easily initiate and complete a bowel motion.
  • avoid the need to support the perineum and back wall of the vagina with your thumb/fingers.
  • aid women with poor dexterity and flexibility to open their bowels effectively while maintaining independence 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Femmeze® Vagina Trainer is a single user medical device.

A posterior prolapse occurs when the back wall of the vagina nolonger has the support of muscles and connective tissue.

With gravity and the weight/size of a full rectum the back wall prolapses into the vagina.

Symptoms include the sensation of vaginal heaviness, fullness and pressure, a lump or bulge maybe felt in the vagina and is often associated with difficulty emptying the bowels.

Prolapses can be graded from 1-4, depending on the how far the prolapse moves down and sometimes out the vagina.

 Femmeze helps by temporarily reducing the prolapse, restoring the vaginal wall and rectum to it's more correct position while opening yoru bowels.

 

 

How to Use the Femmeze:

The FEMMEZE ® is shaped like a shoehorn, the paddle end of the device is inserted  into the vagina whilst your thumb rests within the recess that is located at the top of  the handle (Fig. 1) and with at least two fingers located within the grooves that are  positioned on the reverse of the handle (Fig. 2).

femmeze guide

To insert the trainer apply a small amount of a vaginal lubricant (Restore Physiotherapy sells and recommends Pjur woman) around the paddle of the trainer gently insert into the vagina as shown in Diagram 1; push in a posterior direction repositioning the rectocele so as to permit voiding as in Diagram 2.
