WHAT IS ELECTRONIC MUSCLE STIMULATION (EMS)?
Electrostimulation is a technological innovation designed to treat muscles by exercising them passively with electronic impulses, that is, involuntary contracting the muscle.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Electrostimulation, specifically the kind used at The Body, is very simple.
Our EMS stimulator has 10 channels that adjust to the intensity needed for different muscle groups, making it possible to customise training to clients’ objectives.
During training we can also modify the frequency of the electrical stimuli, measured in Hz (cycles per second), that the device emits. Different objectives are achieved by customising this frequency along with stimulation and rest times and exercises.
WHAT ARE ITS APPLICATIONS BY TRAINING PROGRAMMES AND TYPE?
There is a broad range of EMS stimulator applications that make the proper use and training in these devices crucial.
The objectives of EMS treatments range from activating endorphins to muscle hypertrophy to many other programmes that focus on increasing muscle strength and development to increase both explosive and reactive strength, muscular endurance, muscle tone, weight loss, anti-ageing, etc.
