Strengthen Pelvic Floor Muscles with the All-New Emsella Chair
新增設修護椅Emsella Chair 助收緊盆底肌

Aging, childbirth, weight gain, menopause, long-term constipation, chronic cough, and other factors may contribute to weakened pelvic floor muscles, which may then lead to insufficient support of pelvic organs. Pelvic floor muscles that experience added pressure or a loss of control may also bring about vaginal laxity, frequent urination, or urinary incontinence, greatly affecting a person’s quality of life.
With this in mind, the Rehabilitation Center at Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road recently installed an Emsella Chair, which easily and effortlessly targets a range of intimate health and wellness issues. The chair is equipped with patented technology that aims to strengthen and rehabilitate weak pelvic floor muscles, and is also recommended as post-natal exercise for new mothers. A single 28-minute session on the Emsella Chair induces 12,000 painless supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, and over 80% of patients report significant improvements in terms of incontinence issues after treatment.
Those interested in receiving treatment through the use of the Emsella Chair should note the following:
1. Doctor's referral is required for treatment.
2. Treatment program targeting weak pelvic muscles includes: bladder muscle exercises, supplementary home exercises, Emsella Chair treatment, and recommendations for lifestyle changes.
3. Emsella Chair treatment may require a total of 6 or 8 sessions. Patients are suggested to undergo one session per visit, twice per week.
4. The first Emsella Chair treatment session includes an initial assessment, completion of a questionnaire, pelvic floor muscle training, and a trial run on the Emsella Chair. The fee for the first session is HK$1,180. Each subsequent Emsella Chair session is HK$750.

有見及此,香港港安醫院—司徒拔道(香港港安)的復康中心新添置了修護椅Emsella Chair,幫助輕鬆改善各式各樣的私密處煩惱。其專利技術有助緊緻盆底肌肉,提升肌肉控制度,解決私密問題,亦可以幫助媽媽進行產後運動。只需安坐修護椅28分鐘,便猶如進行了12,000次盆底肌訓練。有研究顯示逾八成病人接受治療後,尿失禁問題得到明顯改善。
1. 有關服務須經醫生轉介。
2. 針對骨盆肌肉無力問題的治療計劃包括訓練膀胱肌肉運動、居家運動、修護椅治療,並會教導病人改善生活方式。
3. 修護椅治療共有6節或8節兩種療程,建議每週進行2次,每次1節。
4. 首次修護椅治療療程包括初步評估、問卷、訓練盆底肌肉運動及體驗修護椅,費用為港幣$1,180。其餘每節修護椅療程費用為港幣$750。


Promoting Health and Wellness in the Workplace

As a response to pandemic-related stress and pressure experienced by our frontline medical staff and employees, Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road (HKAH – SR) hosted various wellness activities in August to encourage staff to take time out to relax, recharge, and focus on their health.
The Lifestyle Management Center (LMC) organized a series of 15-minute stretching and exercise workshops for hospital staff, where they learned simple stretching exercises to effectively relieve muscle tension and achieve a more satisfying state of rest. The LMC also held its first-ever high-intensity interval training (HIIT) class, which proved to be very popular with employees and taught participants to burn maximum calories in a minimum amount of time, therefore facilitating fat loss and muscle building.
Finally, the Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) Department hosted an OSH Fun Day, which featured interactive activities that enabled staff to learn stress management techniques in an easy and fun way. Small gifts and prizes brought a lot of joy to the participants! The event not only infused the workplace with a healthy dose of cheer and enjoyment, it also promoted a harmonious environment that inspires motivation, dedication, and productivity in employees.

健康生活促進中心為醫護人員和員工舉行了一連串伸展運動工作坊。在中心導師的帶領下,參加者在15分鐘內透過簡單的伸展運動來舒緩肌肉緊張,從中得到更有效的休息及放鬆。 首次舉辦的高強度間歇運動課堂亦獲不少同事青睞,參加者在短時間內消耗更多的熱量,有助減脂增肌。
職業安全與健康部就舉辦了OSH Fun Day,以遊戲方式將各種有效及容易執行的壓力處理方法帶入工作環境,各式小禮物亦帶來了驚喜!此活動既為工作帶來歡樂,又維持和諧的氣氛,好讓同事盡情投入工作的時光,提升工作效率。

Get Ready for the Brand New U500 and U700 Surgical Wards
U500及U700外科病房 全新面貌即將呈現

To elevate the in-patient experience, Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road is currently upgrading its U500 and U700 surgical wards. The renovation work is expected to conclude by the fourth quarter of 2021. Elegant, comfortable, and designed with the needs of our patients in mind, our renovated wards will offer a much more personalized experience thanks to newly installed “smart bedside stations” – multimedia panels that allow patients to not only easily access medical information such as personal particulars, admission arrangements, test results, and billing details, but also order meals and participate in video conferences.
