Pelvic Floor Centers of America™ ( PFCA™) opens its 10th Certified Center for pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation in Jupiter, Florida. PFCA™ launched its national physician network February, 2014 and is licensing its technology through a new and exciting opportunity to medical providers with minimal up front cost. As stated by Bradley A. Cole, CEO, “Our research estimates that 1% of the patients requiring medical intervention for urinary incontinence would result in a need for over 460 PFCA™ centers today in the State of Florida. Today, it is estimated that 43% or 23,000,000 women will suffer with bladder weakness in their life time. PFCA has assembled a world class team to execute our 5 year business plan and franchise model to expand into all 50 states resulting in a significant business opportunity for our investors and shareholders. We are focused on Florida as our beta site growing 2 to 3 new centers per month and expect to sell our first franchise starting 2016.”
The cornerstone of PFCA™ centers is the FDA approved Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation (ExMI™) Technology. ExMI™ technology produces electromagnetic fields to induce contractions of the pelvic floor muscles. There is no need for direct contact, probes, patches, or other electrodes; patients may remain comfortably seated in the leather ExMI™ chair fully clothed throughout the duration of the 20 minute treatments. The ExMI™ Nerve Stimulating Therapy has two FDA Approved indications. The first is for urinary incontinence diagnosed as stress, mixed, or over active bladder (OAB). The second is prevention of atrophy of the muscle. Bladder weakness is caused by weakness in the muscles of the pelvic floor, either due to general atrophy with age, damage after giving birth, hysterectomy, or a combination of these factors. When the pelvic floor muscles are made to contract by ExMI™ stimulation, these activities will help to strengthen and restore effective control. 117 Multicenter clinical studies have confirmed the efficacy of electromagnetic stimulation of the pelvic floor for the treatment of incontinence.
How does ExMI™ work? This internationally patented technology utilizes electromagnets that are designed and built into the seat of the ExMI™ chair. The effective magnetic field above the magnets is small – about the size of a small pineapple. The patented ExMI™ computer program signals the ExMI™ technology to push a pulsating magnetic wave into the pelvic floor. The pulsating magnetic wave connects to the nerves inducing a depolarization of the nerve and creating a deep muscle (Kegel) pelvic muscle contraction. By adjusting the strength of the field, the nerves and muscles of the pelvic floor are induced to contract at certain levels for muscle force, muscle volume, and muscle endurance. The rate and strength of the pelvic floor contractions can be adjusted to optimal settings using controls, like tuning the frequency and volume on a radio.
Pelvic Floor Centers of America is currently looking for qualified Health Care Providers and qualified Investors to partner with PFCA to grow our national network of centers dedicated to providing a new therapy option for patients with bladder weakness issues.
