Living With Pelvic Health
14 million people in the UK suffer from bladder control problems
60% of women will suffer from urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. Half of all women will have some degree of pelvic organ prolapse.
It’s a massive problem making women’s (and men’s) lives miserable, not to mention being quite costly for the NHS.
Introducing Living With Pelvic Health, connecting clinicians to patients’ real-time adherence records through SqueezyCX.
SqueezyCX is the next step in evolution for the award-winning Squeezy app.
It’s the same Squeezy patients know and love – just connected to their pelvic health specialist by the Living With Pelvic Health clinician dashboard.
Easily access patient adherence records
Clinicians and physios can quickly access patients’ exercise programme adherence records, both on an individual and group level, from a laptop or tablet.
By having adherence data easily to hand, many of the obvious questions are answered so appointments can focus on areas where more education or support is needed to improve confidence, adherence and self-management.
Building on a considerable foundation
In 2013, we launched a pelvic floor muscle exercise app, Squeezy, to help address the embarrassing, yet prevalent, condition of urinary incontinence which affects one in three women over their lifetime.
Designed in partnership with pelvic health physiotherapists from the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, we brought together clinical and digital product design expertise to create a tool that was easily accessible to everyone.
And we turned a few heads…
Amazing feedback from patients and physios
Not only acts as a reminder and alarm but most importantly for me it’s an evidence record to show my physio.

It’s a great app I encourage a lot of patients to use it. Well done.
Tracy Miles – Direct contact
My record of doing my exercises before this App was appalling and as a consequence I saw only slight improvement. Now I am doing them properly every day! Brilliant idea and worth every penny! (smiley)

I should hope that every single NHS physio involved with pelvic floor rehab knows about your App, I use it all the time and recommend it repeatedly – so simple and straightforward. We all owe you huge thanks as I know it was a long slog for you. Well said, Annie James – patients love it

Great help! I found the App to be very useful! Especially the reminders part! I would recommend it to everyone who needs to do their pelvic floor exercises.

As a physiotherapist, many of my patients have told me that they find it hard to remember to do their exercises. This innovative app supports women to complete their recommended exercise programme.

Finally I’m doing the exercises and making some progress! Thank you to the makers

How can my patients start using Living With Pelvic Health?
Living With Pelvic Health relies on clinician participation and seamlessly integrating into healthcare teams’ workflows. For these reasons, Living With Pelvic Health is only available through a clinic, hospital or specialist pelvic health physios.
Our software is provided, operated and maintained by us, including all patient apps. And is able to integrate with compatible 3rd party systems such as patient management and appointment systems.
That way, healthcare teams can focus on managing patients, not apps and IT.
