Back Pain Relief
Research description and outcome
The researchers aimed to identify the effects of complex EMS training on back pain and a total of 49 people (31 women and 18 men with an average age of 47 years), who were suffering from back pain participated in this study. The 49 participants performed EMS training sessions over a period of 5 weeks and were assessed before as well as after the EMS training.
The research results highlighted the following:
A decrease in back pain was observed in 88.7% of participants
Frequency and the intensity of back pain significantly decreased within the training period
75.5% showed improvements in mood and 69.4% noticed an increased vitality
85.7% of the women reported an increased body stability and 75.5% felt more relaxed after training
Post Pregnancy Fitness
Getting into shape after pregnancy can be a difficult journey and EMS is one of the fastest ways to achieve the results you want in the safest, most effective way. TRAINWISE team will guide you through a tailored.
Pelvic floor strength is a common concern after pregnancy and EMS training is proven to improve control and combat associated problems, such as urinary incontinence. While the results of using EMS as a local therapy to tackle incontinence are mixed, studies carried out at Bayreuth University showed that full-body EMS achieved excellent effects in in over 75% of the participants.
The main benefit appeared to be an indirect strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles through the stimulation of the adductors, as well as the nerves that supply the pelvic floor muscles, which run past the areas with the electrodes for the abdomen and buttocks. Over 90% of the group who trained intensively showed significant improvements in their symptoms.
Statistics for reducing symptoms of urinary incontinence in 49 participants,
over six weeks (two sessions per week):
75.8 % SUI reduction
33.3 % completely UI-free
50 % reported significant
Test results showed that EMS training increased maximum strength of the tested muscle groups (on average by +9%) and significantly improved the maximum power output (on average by +29%) of participants (as shown in table). This is highly relevant for sport performance, as well as the everyday requirements of our muscular system. Most notably, it was found that EMS training was the only training method that succeeded in improving the speed factor within overall performance. Another interesting finding was the EMS training group was the only group to show improvements after the conclusion of the 4-week training intervention, which indicated EMS training requires a longer recovery period as the training effects have a delayed onset.
Body Shaping, Weight Loss & Toning
Combining EMS Training with balanced nutritional habits is an easier way to achieve your ideal shape and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
EMS allows you to target most of the major muscle groups at the same time, with the option of focusing on specific areas.
Whether your goal is to achieve a smaller waist, more muscle definition or less fat, a number of studies have confirmed the effects of Miha Bodytec full-body workouts**:
87% of participants reported being ‘thrilled’ with their results, citing clearly visible body shaping effects and improved body image.
89% felt tighter and stronger throughout the EMS training programme.
Body fat decreased by up to 4% within six weeks of starting the programme.
Women lost an average of 1.5 cm at the waist and hips.
Men reduced their waist size by up to 2.3 cm and an average of 1–2 cm from the legs, upper arms and chest (at the same as time building muscle).
Clients classed as obese lost an average of 3.5 kg and 9% body fat, 6.5 cm off their waist and 2 cm from their upper arm circumference, after only 13 weeks of training.
Clients 65 years and over lost 6.8% of fat around their waist and reduced the circumference by 6 cm
Anti-cellulite treatment needs activity and stimulation. Instead of only treating the surface, EMS activates the muscular and connective tissue in its entirety which leads to better circulation and the reduction of superfluous fat cells. The result is a firmer, tighter body!
EMS training enhances circulation through all connective tissue which helps improve skin tone; the removal of metabolic byproducts and toxins in the lymph glands. It also helps stimulate internal organs and peristalsis. Wellbeing made easy!
