Electro Muscular Stimulation or EMS is an electrical impulse applied locally, which stimulates the muscles and causes a physiological contraction. This is a replication of the natural process controlled by the brain. Natural muscle contractions actively use the nervous system resulting in significant nerve fatigue. Its main objective is to strengthen the muscle either in addition to exercise or as part of muscle rehabilitation.

It also helps you to

•work your muscles to recover after an injury,
•strengthen and tone your muscles after or during physical exercise,
•relieve pain
•enjoy deep relaxation at any time.

For several years now EMS has been indispensable to great athletes and physiotherapists who sing praises about its merits and excellent results.

No, the training is not at all dangerous. Electric Muscle Stimulation has been used by chiropractors, physicians and osteopaths for decades, but only recently has it started to make headway in fitness training and beauty/wellness purposes. The machines themselves use very low voltage electrical impulse.
No, there is no danger of the electric impulse damaging the nervous system. The use of low frequency impulse is widely used in training and rehabilitation therapy, and EMS uses the natural principle of sending electrical impulses direct to the muscles.
Most people can use EMS training but if you have a certain health condition that prevents you from participating in conventional sport then you must get approval from your doctor.

Please do not use the product if you are:

– Pregnant

– Have a heart pacemaker

– Suffering from severe circulatory disorder & arterial circulatory disorder

Yes, but only six weeks after delivery. There are numerous studies that clearly indicate that EMS quickly and effectively trains the deep pelvic floor muscles. It is an elegant countermeasure to a tendency towards incontinence. The positive effects naturally apply to all of the connective tissue and skin structures that are stretched and overstretched during a pregnancy.
EMS training is no more strenuous than a conventional workout. By the end of the session you will need a rest and a drink of water, depending on the intensity of your workout. The 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.
This is not how the technology works. The technology enhances the impact of the exercises you do, but you must be doing exercises in order to experience benefits. As you work out, the electrical pulses will stimulate the muscles, dramatically improving the efficiency of the exercise routine.
Our clients usually report visible results within four to six sessions. It can take a little longer, or shorter, depending on your body weight and level of fitness when you come for your first session.
The workout element of the session lasts exactly thirty minutes.
We recommend that you train twice a week. After each training session it usually takes around 24-36 hours for the body to recover and consequently, doing more than three sessions is not recommended. As you see you progress and your body adjusts accordingly, you can train thrice a week based on your comfort level.
You only need to work out once or twice per week to achieve comparable results to several hours in the gym. This means you can literally save yourself hours per week! The results will come quickest if you workout twice per week.
Whilst EMS might seem like a thoroughly modern exercise trend, its origins stretch as far back as the 18th century and beyond. From humble beginnings in Asia Minor to the exercise phenomenon it is today, EMS has had a long and interesting journey.

Back in 200 BC Claudius Galenus discovered that illnesses such as headaches and gout could be treated using a natural electric impulse. Through the application of his forward-thinking research, Galenus was the first to discover that EMS might be beneficial to the strength and well being of the human body.

Skip forward to 1780, in the studio of Luigi Galvani, he discovered that a frog’s leg contracts as the result of electronic stimulation. This scientific breakthrough showed that electric impulses could be used to elicit a controlled contraction from a muscle but it took almost another 100 years for the first meaningful book to be published on the subject. Arthur Garrett’s ‘Electrophysiology and Electrotherapy’ was published in 1860 and detailed the ways in which EMS could be used to effectively aid those with reduced mobility and muscle function.

In 1939, scientists discovered that mammals experienced higher muscle function when those muscles were electrically simulated, but it wasn’t until 1971 that this was proved on humans as well, with their subjects showing up to a 40% gain in strength. By the 1990s EMS as we recognise it today was born, and was becoming a regular feature both in fitness workouts and physiotherapy.

Now EMS is used as a part of a workout for athletes and professionals looking to get fit in a fraction of the time. This amazing technology is also used by astronauts to aid muscle atrophy, and continues to play an important role in many physiotherapy sessions.

So, whilst using electric impulses to improve your fitness might seem a little futuristic, its actually one of the most ancient ways of improving muscle performance and fitness. Join the tradition and book your first EMS training session today.

The device has 5 hours of run time after every full charge. It is highly recommended to charge the device after every 3 sessions of use.
It is recommended to use the device with sufficient battery as using the device when battery is running low might cause the stimulation to be weak.
The suit has to be skin tight without any air pockets in between the skin and the suit. This is to ensure that the electrodes are fully in contact with the muscles. Air pockets will cause discomfort during stimulation. Arms/Legs/Waist straps can be worn to secure the suit to the body even more.
Yes. EMS can supplement your normal gym routine and users can save time and achieve better results by doing so.
Warm up is mandatory before EMS training, this is to ensure that the muscles are warm and ready for the training sessions. This is to also ensure proper functioning of the electrodes on the suit. The suit will not be able to detect if muscles are cold.
It is best to do dynamic warm-ups before training sessions and stretching after training sessions as well.
Yes. EMS allows users to recruit up to 90% muscle fibres during training which will cause users to have muscle soreness like any other trainings. It is recommended to train using EMS 2 to 3 times a week. Users can increase training frequency as they see progression.
If you encounter any damage on the pads and wires, refrain from using the suit and contact the help line to get it replaced. Please follow the maintenance guideline on the manual to prolong the suit life.
Do not attempt to do any self-repair as damages incurred will lead to void of warranty. Always check if the box has been charged and also try restarting the box if you face a problem. If problem persists contact customer support for further instructions.
This happens when the skin becomes too dry due to insufficient warm up and hydration. Always start the sessions with dynamic warm ups and hydrate yourself throughout the sessions. When muscles get cold, you will not be able to feel the stimulation.
Adjust the intensity according to the type of training you are about to do. Make sure that the stimulation is not too strong to the point that it can restrict your movement. Start with light intensity and progressively increase the intensity to your desired level.
The device takes 2 full hours to be fully charged. Please refrain from charging it overnight.
