If you don’t know what a pessary is, let’s start by saying it’s a quality-of-life-saving device, and in this episode of Fit2B Radio, we interview the maker of one: Gaynor Morgan started out as a nurse and invented a leading pessary called “Incostress” that stops incontinence and helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Gaynor’s original invention was for her mother who was facing this condition and couldn’t find a solution after the surgery failed her. However, Incostress went to clinical trial in the UK where 30% of the patients came off the waiting list for surgery, and a further 78% showed a significant improvement in stopping their stress incontinence. After her mother passed away suddenly in 2004, Gaynor opened her company in memory of her, vowing to continue to help as many women as possible. She began developing other medical devices to help women who show symptoms of incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse issues. She has worked with some of the leading doctors in this field and has helped pessary manufacturers with designs of pessaries. She has won several international awards for the work she has done in the female health sector and continues her work training medical staff and personal trainers while also advocating for more women’s health physiotherapists and personal trainers to work with the pelvic floor. Not all pessaries are created equal, so don’t miss the VIDEO version of this podcast!
