(Electrical muscle stimulation)
The basis for post-exercise recovery is the normalisation of tissue through the movement of nourishment and waste. EMS is specifically designed to accelerate this process. The EMS device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events.
The process begins with the activation of Nitric Oxide (NO), which dilates blood vessels and leads to increased flow delivering more oxygenated blood and nutrients to the area. The lymphatic and venous systems also require and benefit from localised muscle activity. Because of this, using EMS after physical activity helps move the related waste and deoxygenated blood away from the fatigued area(s). This exchange of nourishment and waste, without stress or fatigue, accelerates the recovery of the muscle.
