Micro-current Electrical Stimulation • Relieve muscle aches and pains
FDA-Listed and CE-Certified
EMS is the abbreviation for "Electrical Muscle Stimulation". The electrical microcurrents of EMS are adjusted to stimulate muscle motor nerve strands at a high enough intensity to cause muscle contractions and thus affect muscles at a deep level. Benefits can include muscle relaxation, increased local blood circulation, and treatment of tenderness. Other common uses for EMS: increasing range of motion: preventing Muscle Disuse Atrophy, releasing muscle spasms, various conditions that benefit from increased local circulation.
Electrical stimulation for the treatment of muscle aches and pains in the body has been used for many years by physiotherapists. Now, you are able to treat yourself at home with the latest in digital EMS units that are completely safe, with FDA and CE approval.
Note: TENS stands for "Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation", a related technology but designed to stimulate nerve endings for pain control without contracting muscles. For more on TENS, click on the "TENS Units" link in "Electrotherapy" menu at left.
