TESLAChair Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS FMS?
FMS stands for Functional Magnetic Stimulation which delivers up to 3 tesla. A special magnetic ﬁeld is generated by a pulse of current inside the EM (electro magnetic) mechanism, and this induces a current that triggers the motor nerve system of the body, stimulating the targeted muscles to contract, and helping to boost circulation and nutrition.
WHAT DOES TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Patients are seated and fully clothed when being treated in the comfortable TESLA Chair. The therapy is non-invasive, painless and without any known side effects.
You will be encouraged to concentrate on muscle contraction during the stimulation. This facilitates the implementation of active learning exercises.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR MY PROBLEM?
The treatment is suitable for all types of urinary and faecal incontinence. It is used for faster rehabilitation after surgeries in the urogenital area, after childbirth and for some sexual dysfunction and chronic pelvic and lower back pain. You will complete a questionnaire and receive a physical examination as part of your assessment for treatment.
