Voiding dysfunction is a condition where there is inconsistent coordination within the urinary tract between the bladder muscle and the urethra. This results in incomplete relaxation or overactivity of the pelvic floor muscles during voiding (urination). Voiding dysfunction is estimated to be present in more than half of the elderly population.
JOGO therapy is built with the clinically proven science of EMG Biofeedback which has been studied for many years to treat Voiding dysfunction in both children and adults. Typical JOGO therapy for Voiding dysfunction lasts eight 45 minutes sessions spanned across 8 weeks, provided either in-person or remotely by the JOGO's Digital Clinic through certified pelvic floor therapists (patients receive a JOGO kit shipped home for tele therapy).
Biofeedback assisted Pelvic Floor Muscle Training (PFMT) is a FDA Approved treatment for Voiding dysfunction. American Urology Association (AUA) and American Urogynecologist Society (AUGS) recommend that Behavioral Therapy like JOGO Biofeedback assisted Pelvic Floor Muscle Training (PFMT) should be the first line of treatment for Voiding dysfunction before trying medications or surgery.
