Studies on EMS
Whole-Body Electromyostimulation Training
Whole-body EMS is a safe and effective method for training all types of people. It uses basic EMS technology that has been used since the early 1970s in the rehabilitation arena. Current is directed between two electrodes exciting the motor neuron and forcing a muscle contraction. The X Body device has 9 pairs of electrodes that cover the major muscle groups. The hertz are adjustable from 1-100, allowing specific muscle fiber type recruitment. This is extremely important for individuals suffering from injuries, joint pain and those unable to workout at the necessary loads to recruit specific muscle fiber types. This is also helpful for those suffering from cardiovascular conditions and significant obesity issues; the circulatory system is taxed at a lower rate than traditional training and yielding a significant caloric and metabolic response.
The device is extremely safe and has shown no risk of impacting organs due to the type of current used and its inability to pass through visceral (cutaneous) fat. This specific technology is new to the US but has been used in Europe for over 10 years and can be found in over 82 countries without medical concern (if used correctly). READ MORE >>
