The EMS Shape is based on HI-EMT (High Intensity Electromagnetic Muscle Training). It works to elicit muscle contractions, tricking the body into thinking it is exercising. These contractions result in muscular hyperplasia (increase in the number of muscle fibres) and muscular hypertrophy (increase in the volume of these fibres).
Typically, it is your body that triggers your muscles into action by sending electrical impulses from the brain through to the central nervous system. However, using an EMS device allows the body to involuntarily engage in deep intense muscular contractions without actually activating the central nervous system, joints and tendons. The body cannot distinguish the difference between a voluntary contraction and an electrically induced one.
During a 30 minute treatment, you will experience up to 30,000 supra-maximal muscle contractions. Imagine physically contracting your glutes or your abs 20,000 times in one workout! The thousands of supra-maximal contractions create an extreme environment beneath the skin, building muscle mass whilst reducing fat.
