Find the right EMS machine and secure the following benefits:
Build muscles fast and gentle with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and the right EMS machine! If you suffer from rheumatism or get injured, which limits your physical activity, you can still build muscles with an EMS machine. EMS is joint-gentle, can help you with losing weight and it can increase the efficiency of your workout if it's combined with classic exercises. With a device from axion you get a certified & high-quality EMS machine for your requirements.
The operating principle of an EMS machine - simply explained
The brain sends impulses to a muscle which causes the muscle to work. An EMS machine generates artificial stimulation of the muscle by the use of low frequency electrical pulses that stimulate the nerves located beneath the skin. That leads to a reaction of the targeted muscles. The muscle is unable to distinguish between an impulse from the brain or one that comes from outside. The muscle reacts with a contraction in both cases and uses up energy. Because the impulses come from the external EMS machine and not from lifting weights, EMS is joint-gentle. Because of its simple application, you can use a TENS machine easily at home or at work. Our muscle stimulator offers several pre-installed programs, which you can choose individually. There are programs for small and large muscle groups, but also for muscle relaxation. The pulse intensity, pulse duration and frequency are deposited automatically. Our EMS machine is medically certified, is checked regularly and ensures maximum of safety. In combination with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) you can alleviate pain in a targeted way without medication. We recommend you after an EMS workout the application of a massage or muscle relaxation to prevent muscle soreness. In this case, you can use our EMS TENS combo machine STIM-PRO X9 and place up to eight electrode pads through four channels.
EMS in combination with TENS
With targeted muscle building you can reduce the risk of being injury-prone. However if you feel pain and tension, an additional TENS treatment can be helpful. Our EMS TENS combo machine offers 14 different EMS programs and 16 TENS programs, which can help to prevent and relieve all types of pain.
Why you should include strength training to your workout routines
The muscles have an important function for the human body. Our joints and ligaments get protected by the surrounding muscles and they also allow us to move and do physical activities, which is required every single day. With a distinctive musculature you can reduce the risk of being injury-prone, which plays an important role in health prevention. It’s no wonder that the world health organisation (WHO) included strength training in their recommendations of physical activity. It says that adults (including persons older than 65) should do strength training at least two times a week.
Don’t forget to add pauses in your training plan. Overtraining is not beneficial, so you should not exaggerate. Please note that the intensity of your workout increases by combining EMS with classic exercises and because of that muscle soreness can occur at the beginning. Increase the intensity step by step until you get used to the intensity.
With an EMS machine you are on the right way to increase your physical activity. Most of the people suffer from physical inactivity, which results in frequent pain and weight increase. The causes are various, but most often it's because of a sedentary lifestyle. Because of that, regular physical activity is recommended for years.
Beside the healthy aspect of strength training, it can also help aesthetically. Distinctive muscles can contribute to your confidence and self-esteem. Most people know happiness after an intense workout. Also a trained body is recognised by other people, because muscles are often accompanied with discipline. You see, muscle building is essential.
Build muscles in a targeted way
The variable placement of the electrodes allows you to target a huge number of different muscles without having to rely on external equipment, e.g. in a gym. With the electrical impulses, you can also reach deep-lying muscle groups.
EMS does not require additional weights because of the stimulation current, which is why the joints can be spared with this form of training. Therefore, it can be particularly useful for people with joint pain or diseases such as arthrosis or rheumatism to use a muscle stimulation device with stimulation current.
The muscles are located around the ligaments and joints. Strong muscles act as a protective layer for your ligaments and joints and can help you be less prone to injury. With EMS training you also make an important contribution to prevention and possibly save yourself some treatments for pain relief.
If you combine EMS with classic training exercises, you increase the intensity of the workout and can reduce the training time for the same results. In addition, an EMS device saves you a trip to the gym.
Pain relief with TENS
Our EMS device also has a TENS function that allows you to treat pain & tension quickly and specifically, without the need for medication. Visit our TENS application overview page to discover all the possibilities for pain relief.
Relaxation & Massage
A stimulation current device can not only be used for muscle training, but also for muscle relaxation and massage. The frequency, contraction time and pause time differ from the current pulses of the muscle stimulator. But don't worry, our device already has special programs for muscle relaxation and massage preset, so you only have to select the right program.
Muscle preservation in rehab
Have you suffered an injury and need to immobilise the affected area for some time? Then an EMS device is the ideal support to maintain the muscles in the immediate vicinity of the injured area thanks to the targeted application.
Supports fat burning
The combination of classical exercises and the external current pulses of an electrostimulation device increases the intensity of your training and thus also the calorie consumption. On training days you thus burn more calories and in the long term your basal metabolic rate also increases due to more muscle mass.
Thanks to its compact dimensions, you can take the EMS device with you anywhere. Whether in sunny weather in the park, in the fitness studio or at home. Thanks to the practical belt clip, you also have both hands free during the exercises.
Skin Tightening & Anti-Aging
If you suffer from orange peel skin or generally want to tighten your skin, it is recommended to train the muscles in the affected areas. Muscle training tightens your skin and can also reduce cellulite. By using a training device with stimulation current in combination with conventional exercises, you can intensify this effect. Thus, EMS training can also make a contribution in the area of anti-aging.
