How Electronic Muscle Stimulation works:
Electronic Muscle Stimultion is an internationally accepted and proven
way of treating muscle injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses
to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise
passively. Electronic Muscle Stimulators (EMS) Stimulate, Re-educate,
Massage, and Build Muscle. Electronic Muscle Stimulation is basically
done by stimulating some areas of the body. For this purpose, an
electronic stimulation device is used - electrode pads are placed
directly on the body area(s) that need to be stimulated. By dialing the
voltage, you can pick different pressure on the muscles, that create
various medical and cosmetic effects.
The low voltage is usually done on smaller, involuntary muscle
groups, which cannot be stimulated in other ways. The low voltage also
stimulates the brain, which starts sending impulses through the
involuntary muscles, thus stimulating them as well.
