The history of the electric-muscle-stimulation stretches back to a 1791 experiment by Luigi Galvani, a pioneer in bio-electricity, and since then the technology has continually developed. EMS technology has been used by NASA since the 1970s to train their astronauts in zero gravity environments. The benefits of whole body stimulation helped keep them fit in space where conventional exercise proved ineffective due to the lack of gravity. For the past 30 years EMS technology has been used for rehabilitation and physiotherapy. EMS is now recognised throughout the world and its benefits have been used extensively, especially in the US. In the last decade the use of EMS technology by professional athletes has been gradually growing and it is now the latest fitness trend for the general public.
EMS technology stimulates the muscles with impulses causing them to contract and relax in the same way as conventional exercise. When used while training EMS activates up to 92% of your body’s main muscles achieving highly effective results. The technology behind E-Fit personal training represents a time-saving, hyper effective workout resulting in all-round positive health and fitness.
