Vaginal weights were originally invented In the 1980's as a tool to train proprioception In the pelvic floor muscles. The use of vaginal weights has since expanded and they can be used to train pelvic floor muscle endurance, strength, awareness, and as a means of re-education for the pelvic floor muscles. Their use has been studied In various patient populations including those with urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.

The participant will:
- understand the role of vaginal weights in proprioceptive training of the pelvic floor
