Effects of Whole-Body Electromyostimulation on Physical Fitness in Postmenopausal Women

Effects of Whole-Body Electromyostimulation on Physical Fitness in Postmenopausal Women

Physical activity has a fundamental role in the prevention and treatment of the inconveniences associated with advanced age, such as chronic diseases, functional limitation and dependency. Postmenopausal women are associated with loss of strength and power [2] along with increased weight and fat mass [3,4], which may be due in part to decreased physical activity […]

Impact of Active Recovery and Whole-Body Electromyostimulation on Blood-Flow and Blood Lactate Removal in Healthy People

Impact of Active Recovery and Whole-Body Electromyostimulation on Blood-Flow and Blood Lactate Removal in Healthy People

Low-frequency EMS has been used for rehabilitation and recovery for many years. EMS is thought to increase blood flow and accelerate the elimination of muscle metabolites (Lattier et al., 2004). EMS activates muscle pumps in the limb, resulting in increased flow and velocity of blood volume and capillary action (Tucker et al., 2010). Following this […]

Effect of 8 weeks of electrostimulation, on muscle strength and body composition.

Effect of 8 weeks of electrostimulation, on muscle strength and body composition.

Electrostimulation is a widely used method in the area of ​​clinical rehabilitation and sports training. Different types of electrostimulation devices, low frequency device (TENS) and medium frequency device (Russian current) are used in this study. As mentioned in another blog post [2], medium-frequency devices are less effective in terms of force work than low-frequency devices […]

EMS increases the capacity of the left ventricle and the peak of oxygen consumption in patients with chronic heart failure.

EMS increases the capacity of the left ventricle and the peak of oxygen consumption in patients with chronic heart failure.

Electrostimulation in skeletal muscle is a new therapeutic strategy with promising effects in terms of treatment with patients with chronic heart failure. When the capacity of the left ventricle is reduced in patients with heart failure, a series of changes occur that lead to a loss of skeletal muscle and abnormalities resulting from muscle metabolism. […]

Effects of WB-EMS superimposed on the increase of type II fiber strength in soccer players in competitive season

Effects of WB-EMS superimposed on the increase of type II fiber strength in soccer players in competitive season

Improving short-term physical performance in high-performance soccer players is of crucial importance. Therefore, ensuring a proper recovery after a match and the integration of effective strength programs to systematically increase football-relevant strength parameters during the competitive season is a demanding task for the coach. Due to the lack of time, the implementation of alternative training […]

Effects of WB-EMS on the reduction of muscle mass induced by energy restriction during weight loss

Effects of WB-EMS on the reduction of muscle mass induced by energy restriction during weight loss

Whole body electrostimulation (WB-EMS) is a novel technology that helps us save training time by producing greater adherence to training and is highly customizable. Therefore, WB-EMS could be a very effective alternative for those who have little time to train and low adherence to training [2]. Recent studies have confirmed that WB-EMS has a comparable […]

The influence of WB-EMS training on the performance of ice hockey players of different competitive status

The influence of WB-EMS training on the performance of ice hockey players of different competitive status

Introduction: For the past few years, Full Body Electrostimulation (WB-EMS) has found its place in strength training planning. Several studies in professional athletes of various types of sport have shown that complementary training with WB-EMS can achieve efficient results in terms of strength gains [2,3,4,5,6,7,8]. In a systematic review on EMS [9], we examined maximum […]

Effects of different training programs (WB-EMS, HIIT …) on body composition.

Effects of different training programs (WB-EMS, HIIT …) on body composition.

As we already know, physical training is very important to achieve important benefits in body composition. Concurrent training where resistance training and cardio are combined induces a decrease in body fat and increases muscle mass in sedentary men and women. In addition, resistance resistance training was found in one study to improve sedentary bone mineral […]

The use of WB EMS together with protein supplements improves body composition in older people with sarcopenia.

The use of WB EMS together with protein supplements improves body composition in older people with sarcopenia.

Introduction The hypothesis of this study was to determine whether WB-EMS with protein supplementation significantly improves local sarcopenic obesity by increasing muscle mass volume and decreasing fat volume compared to a control group. Method Subjects in this study were divided into a group with WB-EMS + Protein Supplementation (n = 24) and a control group […]
