About the Company
Elvie is a femtech company offering products and services that use technology to focus on women's health.
Their mission is to "improve women's lives through smarter technology".
Currently, they offer a wearable breast pump and Elvie Trainer.
What Is Elvie Trainer?
Elvie Trainer is a kegel-tracking device for training your pelvic floor muscles. The device uses a patented system of force and motion sensors to measure your pelvic floor contractions and connects to an app that provides real-time visual feedback.
Until recently, this technology was only available in hospitals, but Elvie Trainer enables you to benefit from biofeedback technology in the comfort of your own home — or anywhere.
What Are Pelvic Floor Muscles?
Pelvic floor muscles are the layer of muscles that support the pelvic organs and span the bottom of the pelvis. The pelvic organs are the bladder, bowel, and uterus in women.
Is Elvie Trainer Right for You?
Using Elvie Trainer During Pregnancy
You can use Elvie Trainer during pregnancy as long as you do not have any complications.
Using Elvie Trainer After Giving Birth
After childbirth is a great time to get into a regular pelvic floor exercise routine using Elvie Trainer.
Using Elvie Trainer With a Coil or IUD
Elvie Trainer is completely covered in medical-grade silicone with no exposed parts, so it is safe to use with your coil or IUD.
Using Elvie Trainer With a Pelvic Health Condition
If you have a pelvic health condition (e.g. prolapse or pelvic pain) it is recommended that you consult a health professional before purchasing Elvie Trainer.
Using Elvie Trainer on Your Period
Whether or not you wish to use Elvie Trainer on your period is up to you.
There is no reason not to.
If You Can't Perform a Pelvic Floor Exercise
Elvie Trainer detects your pelvic floor squeezes so you need to be able to perform a pelvic floor exercise in order to use it.
If you know you can't perform a pelvic floor exercise independently talk to your health professional before buying Elvie Trainer.
Is Elvie Trainer Safe?
Elvie Trainer is made with medical-grade silicone, is BPA free, 100% waterproof and has been through rigorous safety testing, including stamp, drop, tumble, water, irritation, and heat testing.
Elvie Trainer connects to your phone via Bluetooth, which emits from the tail of Elvie Trainer.
The tail always remains outside of your body.
Bluetooth devices are extremely low powered — approximately 100 times less than the maximum power of a mobile phone.
It is due to this fact that lots of wireless healthcare and medical devices use Bluetooth.
Elvie Trainer uses Bluetooth Low Energy, which offers an even lower emission than standard Bluetooth.
Elvie Trainer is CE marked, meaning it conforms with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA).
Elvie Trainer Benefits

How Does Elvie Trainer Work?
In simple terms:
- Place Elvie Trainer inside
- Connect to the app
- Do your Kegels and track your progress
As you squeeze your pelvic floor muscles, a gem on the app lifts in response to the strength of the contraction helping you visualize your pelvic floor movements in real-time.
30% of women push down when doing their Kegels.
This can lead to damage.
Elvie Trainer solves this problem by proactively monitoring and measuring force and motion that can detect incorrect contraction.
This helps you improve your technique.
The app also comes with a built-in set of 5-minute exercises in order to give your pelvic floor a full workout.

Elvie Trainer is compatible with both iPhone and Android devices:
- iPhone 4s or newer
- iPad 3 or newer including iPad Air and iPad Mini
- Android 6 or newer
- Your device needs to have Bluetooth Smart Ready and it should support Bluetooth Low Energy
