Prior to the course
Patient D was born in 1954; she suffered from stress incontinence, a weak vagina and it was difficult for her to clench her pelvic muscles. The jump peak on the graph on the left side is due to a pressure being wrongly applied during the test. This had to be corrected.
After 10 weeks of practicing
10 weeks later, she happily came to be measured again, although she was rather upset because she had missed one or two days of practice. She had no need to reproach herself, as the graph shows that she had increased her clenching force from five to 90. The clenching force in her vagina became 18 times stronger. She was very happy as she no longer suffered from incontinence.
