How it Works

StarFormer uses magnetic stimulation technology to target muscle tissues selectively. Magnetic pulses harmlessly penetrate into the muscle layers causing them to automatically contract. The end result is increased muscle mass.

The system offers two therapy options:

  • TightWave™

    Muscle strengthening, toning and firming of weakened areas

  • IntimaWave™

    Strengthening of pelvic floor muscles to address urine leakage issues, and improve bladder control.


TightWave™ is a breakthrough therapy for the effective strengthening, shaping and firming of 7 different areas of the body:

  • Glutes
  • Abdomen
  • Hamstring area
  • Arms
  • Back Muscles
  • Shoulder
  • Back

The session is performed with the patient lying down fully clothed. One session generally lasts between 20 to 30 minutes with patients resuming their daily activities immediately after.

In each invigorating 30-minute StarFormer® session, you’ll experience approximately 50,000 contractions!


StarFormer® IntimaWave™therapy can stimulate pelvic floor muscles and back, utilising two applicators to treat all types of male or female urine leakage and bladder control issues. The patient remains fully clothed during the session and sits on a comfortable IntimaWave™ chair.

The magnetic applicators in the chair stimulate muscle contraction in the entire pelvic floor area, increasing the strength and endurance of the pelvic floor. The result is effective and long-term relief of uncontrolled urine flow.
