EMS (E.M.S. Units)

What is EMS?

E.M.S. stands for Electronic Muscle Stimulation. EMS is predominately used by doctors and physical therapists to prevent, or reduce, muscle atrophy. EMS is also widely used by bodybuilders and other athletes as a supplement to strength training. It is used to increase muscle tone and endurance.

What Is EMS?

E.M.S. stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation. EMS is predominately used by doctors and physical therapists to prevent or reduce muscle atrophy, or improve muscle recovery. Atrophy is the weakening and loss of muscle tone, which is usually experienced after surgeries or injuries. EMS has proven to be an effective means of preventing muscle atrophy. Doctors also see EMS as a means of increasing blood flow to muscles, increasing range of motion, increasing muscle strength, as well as enhancing muscle endurance.

How Does EMS Work?

When you perform an exercise, your brain sends a message down the spinal cord through the nerves with all the muscles you're using that causes them to relax and contract. This is voluntary muscle action controlled by your brain.

EMS, as an outside electrical source, uses electrical impulses to stimulate the nerve axons. The electrical current from the EMS passes through your skin to the nerves in the area where the adhesive electrodes are placed. These impulses reach the nerve axons, signaling the muscles to contract and relax rhythmically. EMS actually stimulates muscles that you can not normally exercise voluntarily. This allows you to train muscles that may normally have little activity or that are weaker than it should be.

Studies have shown it possible that EMS can increase muscle hypertrophy (increased development of tissue by enlargement, without multiplication of cells), endurance and strength. EMS may be used only for this or with regular weight training by aiding recovery and helping muscles grow and get stronger. Additionally, EMS can increase body temperature, heart rate and metabolism (promoting energy and fat absorption from the body).

What Does EMS Do For My Physical Appearance?
EMS is widely used by bodybuilders and other athletes to strength training as a supplement. Olympic athletes have been utilizing EMS to enhance their training and to increase muscle tone and endurance for over twenty years.

For best results, many bodybuilders use EMS in conjunction with working out. A rhythmic pumping of the muscles, produced by the EMS unit, helps deliver nutrients and oxygen to the muscles. Concurrently, waste products such as lactic acid are pumped out of the muscles. This increased blood flow to the muscles cuts down on recovery time and promotes healthy muscle activity. Bodybuilders also frequently use EMS for the relaxation of muscle spasms. EMS provides an increase in range of motion, which reduces the chance of injury. Men and Women are increasingly using EMS to enhance their appearance by toning their abdominal and chest muscles.
