In everyday life, your body naturally stimulates the muscles by sending bioelectric pulses through the spinal cord and the nervous system. Muscles need this stimulation in order to move. EMS is in fact nothing more than an amplification of the body's own electrical pulses. With gentle electrical stimulation, the body's own muscles contract more. The EMS training does not put extra strain on the joints and the musculoskeletal system.


The electrical stimulation causes the muscles to contract more and work harder. Deep muscles are stimulated much more effectively than with conventional exercises alone, making each movement stronger and allowing for faster visible improvements.


EMS was originally used in top sport and physiotherapy. Fortunately, the technology is now accessible to a wider public. 


Scientifically proven results

It has been scientifically proven that EMS training produces better results than conventional training and has several positive effects and benefits. "In summary, the increase in muscle mass with simultaneous reduction in body fat mass is a central feature of EMS." Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kemmler, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. 


Activating all muscles

Although EMS training can meet specific training needs, a key difference from other forms of training is that all muscle groups can be activated simultaneously. This makes it much more efficient than conventional strength training or gym sessions, which usually only activate a few muscle groups at a time.


Deeper effect

EMS training also has a quick and deep tightening effect on all core muscle groups. This means that you can achieve the same strengthening of low-lying muscle fibres that we would normally associate with Yoga or Pilates exercises that involve prolonged muscle tension (e.g. planks).


Building strength and endurance

When you train at the gym (or do other similar exercises), you will only use between 40 - 70% of your strength potential. EMS improves the way your muscles work together and increases the intensity of muscle contractions, allowing the body to use up to 90% of its potential - so you achieve more, in a shorter time.


Building muscle (hypertrophy) and muscle tone

The extra stimulation your muscles receive during an EMS workout leads to an increase in muscle mass. After just a few training sessions you will usually notice an increase in the size of chest, arm and leg muscles. 


Fat Reduction

EMS promotes high levels of metabolic activity during and for many hours after a training session. The higher your metabolism, the better your body will burn fat and build lean muscle mass. For women, EMS training has been proven to reduce the size of common problem areas such as around the waist, hips and thighs. At the same time, it will tone the chest and arms. For men, EMS training reduces waist size while developing arm, chest, back and leg muscles.


Improving sports performance

In many sports, strength has a major impact on performance. EMS training maximises the capacity and strength of the muscles and corrects postural problems that can hinder performance. It is an effective and efficient training method to be practised alongside conventional sports such as tennis, golf, football, running and swimming.


Improving posture and reducing back pain

An imbalance in the postural muscles in the back, abdomen and pelvic floor can cause various uncomfortable symptoms, including back pain. For example, sitting for long periods at a desk leads to a shortening of the chest muscles and a simultaneous weakening of the shoulder and back muscles. The EMS can train these hard-to-reach muscle groups in a targeted way, often leading to a noticeable reduction in symptoms and an improvement in overall posture and flexibility. 


PD Dr Bernd Wegener, senior physician at the LMU Clinic and Outpatient Clinic for Orthopaedics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and his team investigated the effect of EMS in patients with chronic back pain. "We compared 85 back pain patients with EMS treatments with a commonly used multimodal therapy (considered the gold standard). Our key statement: We were able to achieve significant pain relief in the patients we treated. Overall, we saw amazingly positive effects."


EMS training is also suitable after pregnancy

"In EMS training with electrical impulses, the pelvic floor is strengthened indirectly by stimulating the surrounding aductors and nerves." Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kemmler, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg


Reduction of stress on joints and musculoskeletal system

The EMS training intensity is not the result of heavy strain, but of electrical stimulation. This is much easier on the joints and the musculoskeletal system. During EMS training, the training intensity is generated by electrical stimulation. This allows the user to enjoy effective training sessions without additional stress on the joints, unlike when training with weights or dumbbells.
