Pelvic floor exercise apps

Bladder control problems can occur in men and women, although it occurs more commonly in women. In women, doing pelvic floor muscle exercises on a regular basis has been shown to improve muscle strength and urinary continence problems. In men, pelvic floor exercises are not commonly recommended, although they can strengthen the muscles that empty the bladder. In addition, there is some evidence that pelvic floor exercises can be helpful for erectile dysfunction and so it could be considered in this context. The following apps on pelvic floor exercises have been reviewed.
