abstract

  • Pelvic floor muscle sEMG is reliable and consistently predictive of several important clinical status variables, suggesting that it can be a useful tool in early at-risk detection and prophylactic intervention for disorders of pelvic floor muscle laxity. Recent advances in sEMG technology make it cost-effective, convenient, noninvasive and easy to learn and administer by assisting staff. This technology is a powerful complementary tool for digital assessment of pelvic floor muscles and should be considered for use in gynecologic practice.
