Try EMSELLA at Pravan Clinic

A multipurpose treatment

At Pravan, we’re focused on bringing constant innovation to our patients. And that's why we brought EMSELLA, an innovative machine that provides non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation of pelvic floor musculature using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to rehabilitate weak pelvic muscles and restore neuromuscular control for treating females’ and males’ urinary incontinence.
