Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a type of electrotherapy stimulates a muscle contraction using electrical impulses, also called neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electrostimulation, is the cause of muscle contraction by electrical impulses.
This is distinct from transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), in which an electric ultrasound current is used for pain therapy and weight loss.
EMS has received increasing attention in recent years for many reasons: it can be used to strength training therapy for healthy subjects and athletes in the area of physical therapy; it could be used as a rehabilitation and prevention dode tool for partially or totally immobilized people; could be used as a test tool to assess neuronal and / or skeletal muscle function in vivo; could be used as a post exercise recovery tool for human body’s of athletes.
The electricity and pulses are generated by a machine and delivered by electrodes to the skin near the stimulated muscles and Human skeleton. Electrode is usually the pad that adhere to the skin. The impulses mimic the action potential that comes from the central nervous system, causing muscles to contract and massage using the massager.
The physical therapy in the prevention muscle atrophy can occur:
Musculoskeletal injuries (damage to bone, joints, muscle, tissue and tendon, foot, human back, knee), perhaps could solved by using a Foot Massager.
The use of EMS has been cited by sports physicians as a complementary technique for sports training, and published research is available on the results obtained. In the United States, EMS devices are regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as Emergency medical services for human body’s rectus abdominis muscle.
