Stamina and electrostimulation
We know the qualities of electrostimulation for muscular rehabilitation and active recovery within the framework of sports activities, but we talk less about the capacity to increase endurance thanks to the use of sportelec electrostimulation devices.
The brand has specially designed programs for this muscular training objective. When we talk about endurance in electrostimulation, we are talking more specifically about muscles, but we will see that muscular endurance increased by currents also has an effect on the endurance of the entire body of the athlete. Thus, in the context of respiratory insufficiency, we speak of electrostimulation because the development of muscle mass, particularly for walking, will have a direct effect on the patient's endurance to move. Respiratory insufficiency is difficult to treat and gradually leads to a loss of mobility due to muscle wasting. The muscle has this particularity that it exists only because you use it, otherwise it disappears after being gradually atrophied, hence the idea of therapists to use electrostimulation to re-tone the atrophied muscles and restore the ability to move to patients. The poor ability to walk of these people does not allow them to maintain their muscle mass, it is very often very old people their cardio respiratory capacity is low.
By recovering muscle mass, they start to walk again, but they also relieve their heart which, despite poor oxygenation, allows them to make an effort again. There is therefore a link between muscle mass and the ability to make a physical effort. The healthier and more developed the muscle, the less effort the heart has to make to use it and the better the performance. In cycling, for example, we will increase the gear ratio of the cyclists' bike during training on certain climbs to force them to develop a muscular strength greater than that which they would normally use on their usual gear ratio. By doing this they are building muscle strength at the same time as they are building their heart and increasing their muscular endurance.
There is therefore an important interest in using the endurance programs of your sportelec, the repetition of the sessions will increase your muscular strength locally and will facilitate your physical efforts and increase your performance.
