What is EMS?

Whole-Body Electrical Muscle Stimulation (WB-EMS) with patented Impulse-Shift Technology (IST) is only available on E-Fit Systems and offered by EM-Pulse Fitness. 

Learn more about this amazing advance in fitness below.

WB-EMS

During sport and other physical activities, the brain’s messages are transmitted to the muscle’s neuromuscular connection through the nerve-tract by electrical impulses. The whole-body EMS technology delivers electrical stimulation directly to the muscles causing them to contract or relax just as they do during traditional workout, but with the opportunity to go deeper into the muscle.

EMS technology has a long history of research and development carried out to reach perfection. There are several distinct impulses used in the fields of therapy, cosmetology and rehabilitation. These kinds of stimuli, also known as voltaic currents, are different electrical waveforms that are apt to cause certain effects.

 

When used properly, they contribute to the recreation and growth of muscle and connective tissue, as well as to the prevention of deep vein thrombosis, thus avoiding undesirable side effects.

E-Fit and EMS

The history of the electrical stimulation of muscles dates back to 1791, hence to Luigi Galvani’s experiment. Since then, countless research studies and sports results have confirmed its effectiveness. Moreover, technology has been registered, as a recognized muscle conditioning approach, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The E-Fit devices also use the EMS technology, which has been perfected for convenient usage throughout the years.

 

The device consists of a special suit equipped with 10 electrode pairs, a modern voltage and frequency control system regulating the treatment process. The comfortable dress is made from a breathable material, thus allowing freedom of movement and perfectly keeping the electrodes on the appropriate muscle group.

Impulse-Shift Technology (IST)

Thanks to the Impulse-Shift Technology (IST) the E-Fit devices cause much lower heat-and impulse-load to the body; making it safer, more comfortable and more efficient to use compared to other EMS devices. IST, developed by E-Fit engineers, and exclusive to E-Fit, is a unique method that shifts the respective impulses between channels in time, so the human body is stimulated in only one spot at any given moment in an unnoticeable manner, thanks to the carefully picked shifting frequencies.

 

Some of the greatest advantages are that the cross-impulses between the channel-pairs can be prevented and the energy need of the device and the level of the output signal can be lowered to a small fraction of the original need.

 

This means that the overall impulse-load forwarded to the human body will equal to the power of one channel only (even when calculated for 10 channels), so the full output performance of the device with manual control is 3.5 Watt maximum and the actual performance is not more than 0.06 Watt RMS, even considering the impulse peaks and the breaks between them.

Direct Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Wireless Technology

The E-Fit Infinity is using a unique peer-to-peer connection to communicate with E-Fit Wireless Units instead of commonly used Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies, making the connection less prone to dropouts or interferences with other wireless devices.

E-Fit Infinity is able to communicate with up to 10 E-Fit Wireless Units in parallel via designated, separate radio channels avoiding interruptions and ensuring stable communication.

Finest Carbon Fiber Composite Cover

The E-Fit Infinity device is a state of the art carbon composite device.

Carbon fibers have several advantages including high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion. To produce a carbon fiber, the carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber as the crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio (making it extra strong for its size).

Innovative E-Fit Technical Wear

with Patented F.C.P. Electrodes

The most comfortable EMS technical wear is designed for highly active and easy movements.

CUSTOMIZABLE / ULTRALIGHT / FLEXIBLE / DURABLE

 

The technical shorts and jackets are separately available with hidden cables and replaceable electrodes.

The patented Flexi Carbo-Plate Electrodes (F.C.P.E.) are unique in the world and proven to be the best in the EMS market thanks to the special carbon-silicon fibers:

 

/ allows perfect contact and impulse transmission
/ no unpleasant feeling, no skin irritation
/ durable and easy to clean
/ 5-year warranty
