The EMS system uses High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, which uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions. It is primarily used in aesthetic medicine and physical therapy to strengthen muscles and improve body contouring.
EMS with HIFEM technology is typically used for two main purposes:
1. Muscle Stimulation: HIFEM devices generate focused electromagnetic energy that penetrates through the skin and fat layers to target specific muscle groups. The energy induces involuntary muscle contractions, similar to what occurs during intense physical exercise. These contractions are much more powerful and frequent than what can be achieved through voluntary exercise, leading to a phenomenon known as supramaximal contractions. 2. Body Contouring: By stimulating muscle contractions, HIFEM technology can enhance muscle tone and strength. This can help in sculpting and toning the body, particularly in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The contractions created by HIFEM technology also have the potential to reduce localized fat deposits and improve overall body shape.
During an EMS session, a specialized paddle is placed on the targeted area of the body. The paddle delivers electromagnetic pulses that trigger muscle contractions in a controlled and precise manner. The intensity and frequency of the contractions can be adjusted based on the individual’s tolerance and treatment goals.
EMS is generally considered safe and non-invasive, with minimal discomfort and no downtime. However, it may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions or implanted medical devices. It is always important to consult with a qualified professional to determine if an EMS treatment is appropriate for you.
