Education Electrical Muscle Stimulation

What is electrical muscle stimulation?

Typically, it is your brain that sends signals to your muscles to make them move. With Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), electrical impulses are sent from a device to create involuntary muscle contractions. EMS technology has been used for years by the leading physicians, top level athletes, and celebrities to help supplement their training. Specifically NeuroMuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) causes Type 1 (slow-twitch) & Type 2 (fast-twitch) muscle fibers to contract, and at different Hz levels can provide a number of benefits to both performance and recovery.

What are the benefits?

- Recover Faster 
- Help Prevent Injury 
- Reduce Muscle Soreness 
- Increase Muscle Strength 
- Increase Muscle Endurance 
- Increase Blood Circulation 
- Warm Up Muscles to Prevent Injury 
- Improve Training Results 
- Feel your best

Increasing performance with EMS:

Electrical muscle stimulation, or EMS, devices are not meant to promote performance and improve aesthetics while you sit on the couch. Though some devices wrongly claim to do this, electric muscle stimulators are meant to be paired with your training routines and workout programs to enhance performance and support recovery in between workouts or post workout. Electric muscle stimulation uses different Hertz ranges to activate specific muscle fibers, forcing them to contract. Why do you need to increase the number of muscle fibers that contract? Simply put, so you can jump higher, lift more, run longer and recover faster.

How is PowerDot different?

PowerDot is an electrical muscle stimulator used by everyone from some of the world’s top athletes, to frequent business travelers, to busy moms. PowerDot has taken the proven concept of neuromusclar electric stimulation (NMES) and packed it into a small lightweight pod, completely controlled by an app on your mobile device. This allows you to gain access to 10+ NMES programs from virtually anywhere in the world. The app walks you through every step of the process, from pad placement, to program selection, to workout duration. We have removed the guessing game and any confusion from traditional EMS using smart technology. 

PowerDot’s everyday training programs are the perfect place to start your fitness journey using electrical muscle stimulation. Our EMS technology is designed to assist in the essential rest and recovery required during and in between workouts to develop full payoff from the previous training session.
