How does Tesla Former work?

Developed a decade ago by Iskra Medical, this chair combines electrotherapy and ultrasound technologies to provide a electromagnetic wave directly into the treatment area. This triggers the nerves located in the muscles of your pelvic area, thus causing them to exercise themselves.

By using a scientific effect called magnetic induction, the Tesla Former treatment sends magnetic pulses to train your core muscles. It does this by inducing consistent contractions that strengthens, improves circulation, just like having an intense workout.

The stimulation does not need direct skin contact, which means the patient does not have to remove their clothes. It is also non-invasive, painless and safe while provides electromagnetic waves into the selected area to stimulate muscles for the desired effect.


Why and how is it effective?



Urinary incontinence is a condition that happens to both men and women. Women however are more inclined to develop SUI due to childbirth and menopause.  As the vaginal wall loosens with age and after pregnancy, women will often find that they have to visit the toilet more often and may experience instances where urine leaks uncontrollably when they sneeze or jump.

Since the Tesla Former treatment sends electromagnetic waves directly to your pelvic muscles, it will help you to stimulate all your pelvic muscles by contracting them; emulating the results of a lifetime of kegel exercises made on your own.

In the end, your pelvic floor will be stronger and tighter, ready to avoid stress urinary incontinence.



Aside from strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, the Tesla Former can be used for fat reduction on the glutes, abdomen, thighs and arms. Just like having an intense workout, the treatment will build muscles as it triggers contractions in the muslces.

As we age, our lifestyles tend to be more sedentary. The lack of activity often causes weight gain at certains part of the body such as the tummy, thighs, butt and upper arms. It is common to experience muscle loss and an increase in fat depositing at these body areas.

The Tesla Forte provides a solution for this by targeting muscle building in these areas. Once muscle is built, it will naturally feed off fat, improve our metabolism and help to keep us from putting on weight as easily.

Results to Expect / Key Benefits

After the sessions, you will start noticing the benefits of having stronger muscles and a tighter body. As muscles are active tissues that feed off fat, you will find it easier to keep the fat from rebounding as quickly as before.

For those being treated for urinary incontinence, they will find that their pelvic floor muscles have more control - this means that you will have better bladder control and be able to hold your pee for longer without needing to visit the toilet as often.

Studies have also shown that the treatment improves vaginal dryness which may have a positive side effect on sexual life.
