Effect of EVB Shorts as evidenced by Ultrasound scanning.

Ultrasound scanning confirmed:

  • EVB Engineered clothing lifts the bladder neck to a significant degree.
  • EVB’s lift the bladder neck to a greater degree than by contracting your pelvic Floor yourself.
  • EVB’s prevent the bladder neck coming down as far when you bear down.
  • EVB’s prevent the Vaginal Wall from coming down or prolapsing.

The Ultrasound study scan images showed the vertical line of the urethra increasing almost 7 times in one woman wearing EVB shorts.
This proves that EVB’s provides tangible support for the Pelvic Floor.
