EMS is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electrical impulses. Every movement in the body is produced by an electrical impulse sent from the brain to the muscle fibers. In conventional training these electrical signals cause muscle contraction and trigger movement. Through using this natural principle, EMS is able to intensify the process to reach deeper muscle layers which are hard to activate through conventional training. This is achieved by applying EMS electrodes directly above the muscles. Controlling each muscle group by adjusting the training intensity according to your individual goals and comfort level.
Please do not use the suit or leggings if you have any of the following medical conditions:
- Active medical implants
- Severe circulatory disorders
- Arterial circulatory disorders
- Strong bleeding tendencies (hemophilia)
- Abdominal wall hernia
- Inguinal hernia
- Tumour diseases
- Arteriosclerosis in advanced stage
- Severe neurological disorders
- Diabetes mellitus
- Febrile diseases
- Acute bacterial or viral infections
- Use of the electrodes in the vicinity of the thorax can cause increase risk of ventricular fibrillation
- Liver diseases
With wireless EMS training suits, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with EACH contraction and the muscle contractions are stronger and more intense than a voluntary exertion can do alone. Compared to conventional weight training, deeper muscle groups are activated which leads to better intra and inter muscular coordination.
A 20-minute workout involves the contraction of over 38,250 pieces of muscle, including the deep stabilizing muscles! Exceeding 20 minutes will overtrain and exhaust your muscles.
No, there is no danger of the electric current damaging the nervous system. Low frequency electric pulses naturally occur in the body, and EMS treatments have been a recognized physiotherapy technique since the 1950s.
Yes, elite athletes use EMS in addition to their training in order to improve strength and speed. EMS Training is recognized in the fields of competitive sport, rehabilitation, and medicine as well as wellness and beauty. Our muscles naturally contract through electronic impulses, and EMS Training makes use of this effect and intensifies it for more effective training.
Does EMS training hurt?
No, wireless EMS training is no more strenuous than a conventional workout. The EMS training equipment uses low impulse frequency. The experience of receiving the impulses may take a little getting used to, but it is not painful in any way.
No, it is not suggested. Performing the right exercises in line with the rhythm of the impulses significantly augments the favorable effects of EMS workouts.
The weekly amount of workout recommended by EMS fitness machines is 2×20 minutes. Unless you do other exercises as well, 3 training sessions a week are allowed with at least a 48-hour rest period between the sessions.
No, the suit contains no cotton and works dry. To get the instant feeling right away you can spray water on your body or on the pads because some people need more time to get their body warmed up.
There are 20 pads that are controlled in groups: Legs/Butt – Back/Waist – Arm/Chest – Abdomen
No, the suit is designed to be as unrestrictive as possible.
Hand wash in cold water. Alternatively, place the suit in a laundry bag and wash in cold or warm water on a gentle cycle. The material is antibacterial, so you don’t need to wash it between each workout.
Only underwear but nothing can cover the pads. For example, boxer shorts will cover the pads, however, thong underwear can be worn.
Only underwear but nothing can cover the pads. For example man’s can’t wear boxers because it’s gonna cover the pads however, ladies can wear thongs
The suit has been thoroughly tested and passed over 100 machine washes with perfect results. The POWERBox’s 1,000 mAh Lilo battery lasts approximately 4-5 20-minute training sessions, depending on intensity. The battery can be charged between sessions.
No. Do not use an EMS suit during pregnancy, and using EMS while nursing is not recommended.
If you have diabetes, please consult with a physician before training with EMS. Diabetes Mellitus is characterized by high blood sugar, which results in an absolute insulin deficiency (no insulin production, type 1) or relative insulin deficiency (insulin production, but the body is unable to metabolize it). Blood sugar drops during intense training, potentially triggering a hypoglycemic episode.
The presence of electrodes in your body’s tissues may slightly alter how an applied current travels through them, which could produce unexpected or risky effects on trainees’ sensations.
Avoid physical activity and training with the EMS suit if you’re sick. There is a risk of pathogens entering the heart, causing valvular inflammation or acute heart disease.
Several studies indicate EMS can effectively train the deep pelvic floor muscles, an elegant countermeasure to postpartum incontinence. The contract-and-relax nature of EMS training yields positive effects on all connective tissue and skin structures, including muscles and structures that are overstretched during pregnancy. Important: Consult your gynecologist and do not begin training until four to six weeks after delivery. Begin training at a very low intensity and increase gradually with each session.
Rented suits are sanitized for each client. The electrodes on the main suit work through the fabric and do not make direct contact with skin. Our suits are produced with special anti-bacterial fabric for increased hygiene.
With EMS suits, you only need to work out once or twice per week to achieve results similar to several hours in the gym. This means you can literally save hours per week!
