Prostate problems

Bicycle saddle for prostate problems?

After a prostate operation or in the case of frequent prostate inflammations, it is crucial that the saddle does not exert pressure on the sensitive perineal area.  The saddle models 621 M-D active and 602 M-D active provide the best possible relief in the perineal area and are recommended after prostate surgery.

If you have a prostate problem see a doctor !

The prostate is a chestnut-sized organ and consists of glandular, muscle and fat cells. It is located immediately behind the soft tissues of the perineal area and lies below the urinary bladder and surrounds the urethra. Men over the age of 45 should go for regular check-ups, because the prostate is an organ that can grow constantly. In addition, the risk of developing prostate cancer increases with age. 

This often causes problems in old age, because the older men get, the higher the probability of being affected. In the course of time, recurring urinary tract infections (pain when urinating) may also occur, making it impossible to sit on the bicycle saddle without discomfort. In the case of prostatitis, pressure on the perineal area must not be applied under any circumstances.

If you have had prostate surgery cycling is only recommended after a certain time – if at all – and with a saddle like the SQlab 600 active.
