Where does EMS Training come from? ــ The Future of Fitness, Today

Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is the new method of stimulating the body muscles using electric impulses that mimic the natural electric impulses that our brains send to the muscles in order to contract them. EMS has become the fastest growing trend in the health and fitness industry, with studios in many countries around the world outnumbering conventional gyms.

Whilst Electric Muscle Stimulation training might seem like an entirely modern training method, its origins stretch as far back as the 18th century and beyond. From unpretentious beginnings to the phenomenal fitness training it is today, EMS has had a long and interesting journey.

  • In ancient eras, 200 BC, Galenus found out that health complaints such as headaches and gout could be treated using natural electric impulses. Through the implementation of his later experiments, he was the first to discover that EMS might be very effective to the strength and well-being of the human body.
  • During the mid of the eighteenth-century, some physicians and scientists had laid the foundations for today’s physical therapy. However, the greatest turning point in the journey of EMS as a training method was achieved only by the Italian physician and anatomy scientist Luigi Galvani in 1780.
  • By the time, electric stimulation is proved by the scientific breakthrough that it could be an efficient way to induce adjusted muscle contractions, but it took almost 100 years for the first considerate attribution in this industry; it was the first book to be published on the subject.
  • In 1939, scientists had found clear evidence that mammals experience greater muscle function when those muscles were stimulated by the electric current, but it wasn’t verified until 1971 that this was proved on humans as well, with their subjects showing up to a 40% gain in strength. By the 1990s EMS, as we recognize it today, was founded and became a regular feature both in fitness workouts and physiotherapy.
  • In parallel with these first trials, another development was achieved: the therapeutic applications in pain therapy, which had already been described formerly, also received wide acceptance in the 1960s, especially as the TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nervous Stimulation) emerged as a special appliance of EMS.

Nowadays, EMS is used as a part of fitness training for athletes and professionals who are looking to get fit efficiently in a very short period of time. Furthermore, this fabulous technology is used by astronauts to support muscle atrophy, and it continues to play a significant role in plenty of physiotherapy sessions. This has now been further developed so that an easy, simple system of electrode vests and belts is adopted, as definitely most of the people regularly use and wear them.
