Electric muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electric stimulation, muscle stim or e-stim, is delivered through the compex machine, a small device that sends electronic pulses to your nerve fibers in order to create involuntary muscle contractions.
At movement perfected we use this to;
- Improve swelling and improve strength in a graded manor in early stages of rehabilitation.
- Compex helps to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to facilitate the flushing of toxins, helping you recover faster.
- To add to muscle training the muscles are ready to boost muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of your muscle fibers-both Type 1 slow twitch muscle (endurance) and Type 2 fast twitch muscle (power and explosiveness). It Boosts results. Your muscles don’t know if you’re using EMS or lifting weights. When you do both, Compex recruits your muscle fibers to help take your workouts to the next level
