What makes Flyte different? Why should I consider it?
Flyte™ is one of the fastest in-home pelvic floor muscle-strengthening stress urinary incontinence (SUI) treatment cleared by the FDA because it's used for 5 minutes per day, once a day. Clinical studies show Flyte can begin to significantly improve bladder leaks in as little as 2 weeks when used as directed in the privacy of home. (Standard treatment time is 6 weeks.)
Unlike other devices, only Flyte uses mechanotherapy to promote a healing response within the cells of the pelvic floor muscles, improving bladder control. Flyte is a proven safe, effective and affordable alternative to surgery to treat SUI.
Can I just do Kegel exercises? Why do I need Flyte?
Kegel exercises, also known as pelvic floor muscle training, can be an effective first-line treatment for women with incontinence caused by weak pelvic floor muscles. But you need to do them correctly. (Many women aren’t sure if they are doing it right — or their muscles are too weak to do them.) And you need to do a lot of them! That’s where Flyte comes in. Flyte is much more effective than Kegel exercises alone because Flyte tells you when you’re activating the pelvic floor muscles properly. Flyte’s mechanotherapy also amplifies the benefit of a Kegel. This means that it takes a lot less time to see results — weeks not months.
How is Flyte different from other pelvic floor devices?
Flyte offers both biofeedback and treatment using mechanotherapy. Mechanotherapy prompts the body’s natural healing response to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Other devices deliver no therapy – they just teach you how to perform pelvic floor muscle exercises through apps; or they use electrical stimulation and electrodes to deliver current to tissue and force muscles to contract. Some women find this uncomfortable.
Also, unlike many other devices on the market, Flyte is backed by robust clinical research from two peer-reviewed studies including a total of 179 patients and is proven safe and effective. Other devices may have limited clinical data or are based on studies of only 20 – 30 patients.
How do I know Flyte works?
We can’t predict what kind of result you will see because individual results vary, and we know Flyte won’t work for everyone. For example, Flyte is not designed to treat incontinence caused by damaged nerves or torn muscle. Flyte is designed to treat incontinence caused by weak pelvic floor muscles. It’s FDA cleared and was studied in a randomized, double-blinded controlled trial led by principal investigators who are physicians independent from Pelvital. This type of clinical trial is the gold standard method of determining whether a product is safe and effective. This means Flyte is backed by high-quality evidence. Many other home-use pelvic floor devices on the market have not been clinically studied to meet these high standards.
