The PeriCoach comes with a discreet case that can store the sensor, as well as charge it between uses. Ensure the sensor is cleaned and dried before storing in the charging case. Ensure the sensor is cleaned with soap and water and dried after use before storing in the charging case. We recommend to fully close lid to prevent lint/dust build up on the sensor unit.

Simply select 'Reconnect' and the app will attempt to reconnect with the sensor. You may need to try a couple of times before connection is re-established. Ensure the phone is within direct range of the inserted sensor. This may require opening legs so that inner thigh is not covering the handle of the sensor.

1. In a clean bowl or washbasin dilute a mild household soap/detergent with water.
2. Soak a soft cloth in the soapy water and wring out the excess moisture.
3. Wipe the probe all over.
4. Rinse the cloth in water until it is free of all detergent.

6. Let the probe dry before replacing it in the charging case.
The PeriCoach is designed to assist in performing proper pelvic floor exercises, known to improve muscle strength and endurance leading to reduction or elimination of bladder leaks as well as improve sexual satisfaction. Just as with all forms of exercise, consistency is key and progress may occur at different rates based on your starting circumstances. Women exercising an average of 5 sessions a week report improvements as early as 4 weeks. However, if you have an underlying condition or your incontinence is not due to a weak pelvic floor, you may need to seek alternative treatment.
The PeriCoach is safe to use during a normal pregnancy as it does not deliver any energy into the body. If you have an unstable pregnancy, or if your doctor has advised you against sexual activity during your pregnancy you should not use the PeriCoach whilst pregnant.
