Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscular injuries while increasing strength. EMS is an effective way to manage pain in a non-addictive, cost-friendly way. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment, which causes the muscle to exercise passively. These impulses sent by the device mimic Central Nervous System signals that cause the muscles to contract. Often, professional athletes massage muscles as a form of physical therapy after working out to improve blood flow to the sore area. Electrical Muscle Stimulation works similarly. Some blood vessels are so small that blood cells have to travel through one by one. Exercise causes the muscle tissues to start to swell, and when this happens, blood flow to these little blood vessels can be cut off.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy can help:
- Increase blood circulation in legs
- Reduce swollen feet & ankles
- Relax muscle aches and pains due to inactivity
- Improve and facilitate healthy muscle performance
- Ease soreness and tenderness caused by poor circulation
- EMS can be used for healthy athletes either as a strength training tool, or post-exercise recovery tool. EMS also has the potential to provide rehabilitation for those recovering from an injury.
Poor circulation may cause tired, aching, and heavy legs. This and swelling feet afflict most people at some point in their lives, usually caused by standing or sitting for a long time. The AccuRelief™ Ultimate Foot Circulator works by sending electronic pulses to the foot or body muscles through footpads or self-adhesive electrode pads. The physiological result is that the foot and calf muscles contract and release, creating a pumping action. This action imitates the body’s natural circulatory system in the legs while walking.
As the calf muscle contracts, blood will squeeze into the deep vein of the leg and push toward the heart. This action effectively prevents blood from pooling. This powerful device delivers prescription-strength relief by relaxing stiff muscles, increasing blood circulation, and reducing swollen feet to help you get back to a normal activity level.
