The Flex Belt® vs. Ab Flex

Ab Flex from Sport-Elec is an electronic muscle stimulation product designed to tone the abdominal muscles. This piece of equipment utilizes light electrical pulses to contract the muscles in the abdomen, simulating the act of exercise without requiring the user to move. The four built in toning pads plus an included one month supply of conductor gel allows Ab Flex’s current to pass to key muscles painlessly.

Ab Flex is worn around the middle—it is cloth and adjustable to fit snugly against the skin. Once the AbFlex’s batteries are in place and the unit is switched on the person using it can select one of several intensity levels. Though the control console on this product protrudes from one size Ab Flex itself is slim enough to wear under clothing. Sport-Elec states typical results from regular use are 1 cm of loss in 2 weeks.
