How Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Works




Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) reproduces the body’s natural process of voluntary muscular contractions with “optimal” electrical impulses. When an electrical impulse is applied to the motor nerve, it provokes a deeper and more complete muscle contraction than what can be attained through standard voluntary training or activity. A muscle cannot tell the difference between a voluntary contraction (triggered by the brain through voluntary activity). The result is a more efficient workout regimen with less risk of injury to joints and tendons and without cardiovascular fatigue.

Benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation with a Compex Muscle Stimulator include:

  • Customized workouts/individualized training.
  • Improve strength, endurance, speed and power.
  • Exercise and build more fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers in less time.
  • Increase muscle performance, strength and size.
  • Potentiate muscles before a workout.
  • Reduce injury and fatigue.
  • Recover faster

Compex enables athletes to individualize and optimize their workouts so peak performance can be achieved. EMS is not meant to be a replacement for traditional strength training exercises, it’s a complement to your existing sports training program—allowing you to target your training for increased power, endurance, speed and strength.

Compex Sport features 5 levels of progression that will keep you challenged and help you improve with every training session. Electrostimulation is also beneficial for recovery after a workout - the Active Recovery program is a relaxing 24 minute session which will increase blood flow 4.5 times faster, remove lactic acid, release endorphins and promote muscle relaxation.
