Measuring vaginal pressures with Dr. Jennifer Kruger

November 23, 2018

Dr. Jennifer Kruger is a senior research fellow at The Auckland Bioengineering Institute at The University of Auckland and has been studying various ways to measure intra-vaginal and intra-abdominal pressures (IAP) in order to help women continue to exercise whilst taking care of their pelvic floor. In this episode, she gives us insight into the development of the latest pressure transducer and how it will help women in the future, as well as her thoughts on IAP in exercise.
