How does EMS Work?
There are a number of ways to overload your body’s muscles for strength improvements. You can use your own body weight e.g. press ups, you can use weights, medicine balls and resistance bands. You can also use electrical muscle stimulation.(EMS)
What’s the Difference Between TENS & EMS?
While TENS is indicated for pain relief and arthritis, EMS can help improve muscle conditioning, circulation and recovery through initiating muscle contraction and relaxation. It’s in the type of output waves where TENS and EMS differentiate. TENS stimulates the sensory nerve endings, while EMS also stimulates nerve endings, the intended purpose is stimulate the muscle to contract.
The Medical Community in Large Part Recommend TENS and EMS Because:
In 1919, naturalist Dr. C. W. Kent developed and patented a device called the Electreat. This handheld, battery-operated device could be used to apply a strong tingling to different parts of the body.
