How does it work?

The pelvic floor
The pelvic floor

Strong pelvic floor muscles support the bladder function. The muscles have the shape of a hammock. The hammock spans the space between the pubic bone and tailbone. The bladder, pelvic floor muscles and the brain work together. When the bladder is full, the brain sends a signal to the muscles to relax. If the pelvic floor muscles are damaged, for example after pregnancy, they respond too late and a little leak can happen...

You won't be doing the exercises alone for long!

Exercise your pelvic floor and measure your progress

Natural solution 

By exercising the pelvic floor muscles you regain control over your bladder function without expensive surgeries or medical treatments. Carin helps you to regain control in a 100% natural way and measure your progress. It only takes fifteen minutes of pelvic floor exercises per day. They can be done anytime and anywhere!

The problem?

Research has shown 1 in 3 women have their pelvic floor muscles damaged after having children. The effects disrupt daily life and a healthy lifestyle. Some examples:

1. That awful little trickle comes at the worst moments...

2. Leakages during daily activities (cough, laugh, jump, lift) 

3. The gym class with jumping jacks you totally avoid. Or running.. 

4. Feelings of shame and embarrassment. 

6. Side effects from pills to stop an overactive bladder. 

7. Skin irritation and infections from wearing plastic in your underwear. 

8. Adult incontinence 

9. The options? Expensive surgeries or wearing pads forever (and eventually diapers).

Do your bit to help save the environment!
Do your bit to help save the environment!

Did you know the amount of waste adult incontinence products produce? Using Carin wearable set means each women would save 28,000 pads being sent to the landfill over a lifetime.

Globally in 2013 the world produced 1.3 trillion kilograms of garbage, of these 6.5 billion accounted for adult incontinence products. 

How it works

1: Charge

Charge — The sensor is rechargeable. You just place the sensor on a special unit and connect to the USB hub of your computer. It lights up when charging, and is dimmed/or blinks when fully charged. It is tested, certified and safe to use!

 2. Sync

Sync — To get started, set up a Bluetooth smart connection on your mobile phone / or tablet. This way the sensor sends your personal data privately to the app. In the app you can track your pelvic health and see progress of your training.

3. Snap

 

Snap — We have created a secret pocket within to snap the sensor on the protective underwear. The sensor is waterproof but take it out before washing the underwear. You just wear the sensor the first 72 hours of each training cycle (1 cycle = 2 weeks).

Other testimonials -

“Before Carin I wasn’t aware that my coffee intake would influence the loss. With keeping a drink log, I notice a big difference already in the first weeks of the exercise programme.” Stephanie, 49

 “Before trying Carin I worried about the location of wearing the sensor. But I never feel it, even not during cycling!” Eva, 34 

 “I have a steady fitness routine even after having my baby. The Carin exercises are now part of my fitness routine. And the Carin underwear? I use it for that little extra protection!” Marian, 38 

 " The sensor is worn in a pocket in the underwear which feels comfortable. I am happy that I don’t have to wear pads anymore...” Kayleigh, 29

Risks and challenges

Critical risks:

Embarrassment: Carin is a product for an embarrassing topic. At least 6 out of 10 women admit they haven’t talked about their problem with others.

Awareness: 90% of women with weak bladder control after pregnancy do not seek for help. Bladder leaks are considered by many women inevitable after pregnancy. Awareness about pelvic floor training as a solution is low.

Willpower: To get back in control requires willpower to continue and a strong wish to be cured from bladder leaks.
