(FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions


What are electronic muscle stimulators?
       

They are state-of-the-art units that are scientifically designed to give your muscles a fast and effective "workout". They are lightweight, portable, and can be used almost anywhere.


How do electronic muscle stimulators work?
       

Under normal exercise, the brain sends impulses to the muscles you are using, causing them to voluntarily contract. An Electronic Muscle Stimulation unit mimics the brain by delivering gentle electrical pulses to your muscles, causing them to contract and then relax, as if the message were coming from your brain. The effects of this stimulation tones the muscles just like regular exercise, without putting undue stress on your back, knees, neck and other joints.


Are electronic muscle stimulators safe?
       

If used as directed, electronic muscle stimulators are very safe, reliable and, in fact, have been used by the medical community for many decades. The technology continues to be used extensively in hospital settings, physiotherapy clinics, and is used by chiropractors, spas and health clubs.


What do the impulses that stimulate the muscles feel like?
       

Since your muscles are contracting and relaxing in a similar fashion to regular exercise, the sensation feels very similar to a good workout. Some have described it as a mild tingling sensation. Remember that since you control the strength of the impulses, you also control the amount of stimulation and can adjust for your own comfort level.


How soon will I see results?
