What is EMS?

Wearable technology has become a must-have in the everyday routine and whether you want to define your abs and increase muscle tone, firmness, and strength, or to supercharge your current workout routine, Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology is the perfect solution for you. Let’s take a deeper dive into what is EMS, the benefits and why you need to incorporate it into your everyday routine. 

What is Electrical Muscle Stimulation?

EMS is a long-established therapeutic modality (application of thermal, mechanical, electromagnetic, or light energies for a specific therapeutic effect) that works by introducing small electrical pulses into the body to strengthen muscles. Small, precisely timed electrical pulses are sent to the nerve supplying the target muscle telling the muscle fibres to “contract”​. The muscle fibres contract in much the same way as if the message had come from the brain while exercising.​

The Flex Belt uses EMS technology to penetrate and stimulate the deepest core muscles. It replicates natural muscle contractions by sending impulses from the medical-grade Gel Pads to the 4 abdominal muscles causing them to tighten and tone in just weeks. These nerves branch out to reach all the abdominal muscles (not just those under the pads) causing them to contract and relax naturally, working all the muscles at the same time. In fact, The Flex Belt provides 150 perfect muscle contractions per session.

Once you switch on your Flex Belt, you will feel it working. A mild pulsing and tingling sensation, followed by the tightening of your abdominal muscles. The muscles should contract smoothly, hold themselves in a tensed position for a few seconds and gently relax again. By the end of the session, your muscles may experience fatigue and it’s in the resting period between toning sessions that recovery, repair and growth happen, building those core muscle groups even stronger.

The Science Behind Muscle Fibers  

Muscle makes up 25 – 45% of your body mass and defines your body shape, posture, and movement. It also protects your body and keeps you warm.

Muscle degeneration is common as you get older. There is a linear loss of muscle mass from the age of 30 and a 26% reduction in type II fibre mass by the age of 80. This can be reversed or slowed down by exercise.

Muscle is an adaptive structure that responds in a specific way to a specific exercise stimulus​. When you perform regular exercise over a period of weeks your body adapts.​ Interestingly, exercise creates metabolic stress which signals to the body to increase exercise capacity​.

EMS activates Type II muscle fibres that you can normally only reach with high intensity voluntary effort. ​Moderate exercise like walking uses more Type I fibres and is great for burning fat and improving cardiovascular fitness. It does not challenge the Type II fibres that are required to improve muscle condition, which is why EMS technology like Slendertone is a great complement to your routine.​
