Electrostimulation was first known for its muscle building functions, to make your muscles move and, provided that your device such as a Sportelec is sufficiently powerful, to strengthen your body, reshape your figure and burn off excess fat.
More recently the skills of electrostimulation have been extended and are recognised for sports training. Active recovery, preparation for exercise, rehabilitation after an accident are also recognised qualities of electrostimulation and of Sportelec. The treatment and relief of muscular pain is widely used by Sportelec and electrostimulation equipment, including by pain centres, which is an indisputable recognition of its effectiveness. But recently, tests to develop an electro-stimulation waistcoat or EMS have shown a new effectiveness which raises questions about the reasons for this phenomenon.
Indeed, the aim of electrostimulation has been limited until now to the functions we have just listed and nothing could lead us to believe that other effects could exist. The Sportelec team was very surprised to find that by using a waistcoat which diffuses the currents of the Sportelec Multisport Pro, several testers felt an energising effect, especially the day after their session. A feeling of freedom of movement and fitness was felt. Additional energy seemed to be available to the athletes. What could be the reason for this? Indeed, the Sportelec electrostimulation waistcoat allows the pectoral and abdominal muscles to be worked at the same time as the back muscles. This is undoubtedly where the explanation for the fitness phenomenon of electrostimulation lies. It must be said that people who practice EMS in specialised centres such as the Sportelec centre in Cogolin have also spoken about this phenomenon of getting back into shape thanks to electro-stimulation.
After their sessions they feel a sense of relaxation, even for people who are overworked by their work or professional activities and who lack sleep have recognised this.
Which electro-stimulation features could create this effect ?
The fact that all the nerve endings in the back are stimulated by this Sport-elec electro-stimulation waistcoat needs to be examined more closely. Because the currents used by Sport-elec are muscular but also analgesic at the same time. The EMS specialists know that to make pain relief with electro-stimulation, tens currents or low frequency currents are used, but in reality these frequencies are also contained in the muscular currents, so when you use your sportelec in recovery or in sports preparation you are also using analgesic currents which will act on the feelings of diffuse pain that you feel.
Some of these tensions are even imperceptible but they play on your performance and on the feeling of fatigue or generalized heaviness. So by doing electrostimulation on a large part of your body and especially on your back, you will relax your body and recover energy. The analgesic currents contained in your muscle currents will act and send a signal of well-being to the brain. The currents are like orders perceived by the brain as signals of well-being that contradict the pain signals. Nothing is certain, but it seems that practising electro-stimulation, especially on the back with the sportelec electro-stimulation waistcoat, gives you a good feeling, good news that needs to be confirmed, but you can already get started and confirm the performance of the sportelec multisport-pro waistcoat
