VITAL STIM DIGITAL 400 DELUXE:
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a technologically advanced science that uses very mild electrical current to exercise your muscles and give you tone, definition, and a figure you can easily maintain and sculpt in the comfort of your home environment.
WHAT IS EMS?
Electronic Muscle Stimulator (EMS) is a revolutionary muscle exercise concept for use in your own home. Our EMS systems are portable, light weight electronic units that have been scientifically designed and proven to exercise body muscles fast, efficiently & effectively through a series of stimulated contraction & relaxation phases. For years Soviet and Eastern block Olympic contenders have used muscle stimulators to build the same rippling muscles that steroids promised.
Now the practice has finally reached the West. Once only available to doctors and therapists, EMS is recommended for anyone participating in bodybuilding, power lifting, martial arts, boxing, or anyone simply wishing to achieve their optimal athletic physique. EMS is used extensively throughout the world. The Medical Advisory Committee has allowed the use of EMS systems by athletes since the 1972 Olympics. Bodybuilders, professional athletes, physiotherapists, sports doctors and US/Canadian Track and Field athletes use EMS systems to supplement their regular workout routines. Many doctors use EMS units to aid in the rehabilitation of muscles following injury and to ease patients chronic muscle spasms and pain.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The EMS 2000 unit has two outlets known as channels (The EMS 4000 and EMS 4000R have four channels). Each channel has two wire connections with two pads attached at the end of each wire. The EMS unit delivers a gentle electronic impulse to your muscles via the soft electrode pads that comes with your system. By placing the pair of pads on a particular muscle group, your muscles respond to the impulses that are generated by contracting and relaxing rhythmically as instructed by you through the unit. When a muscle contracts as a result of a unique EMS/TENS signal, the chemical changes taking place within the muscles are similar to those associated with voluntary contraction in "normal exercising". These chemical reactions which result from muscle contractions utilizes glycogen, fat and other nutrients stored in the muscle. These resulting series of muscle contractions will enable an individual to tone, strengthen, and combat flabbiness while improving contour. Just strap it on while you're resting, reading, net surfing or watching T.V. and watch your body transform right before your eyes.
