Electrostimulation has been the subject of numerous clinical and research studies over the last 50 years.

The effectiveness is proven each time, whether it is for :
- developing strength
- recovering after exercise
- relieving pain
- rehabilitate after accidents
- acting on the microcirculation
The currents act on the body and make the muscles react by stimulating the chemical reaction that creates calcium ions and makes the muscle
A muscle acts like the cylinder of a jointed arm, it can only cause one movement, it is naturally designed for that.
For example, if the arm bends under the action of the biceps, the biceps will shorten and the arm will bend with it. You can see this by watching your biceps bulge during the movement of the arm. The calcium ions created by the electrical command from the brain cause the muscle to react, its shortening causes the movement.
The same is true for every muscle: one muscle equals one movement.
So the evolution of our body over millions of years and the need for movement to live, run, jump, etc. has created muscles that correspond to each movement. It is the same for the eyes, the smile, the walk, etc.
Before/after using electro-stimulation: physical evidence of the effectiveness of our method
It's interesting to take a moment to watch your muscles work, it's fascinating how nature has adapted to give us this body capable of acting and surviving. It is the same for all species as Darwin has shown.
One muscle per movement, so when you electrostimulate a muscle with your Sport-Elec, you work a single movement. This seems logical but it is very interesting to be aware of this.
The currents of your Sport-Elec electro-stimulator replace the cerebral order and provoke the creation of calcium ions which cause the shortening of your muscles. In this way the muscle contracts.
There are several forms of muscle fibres (fast, medium and slow) so depending on the current generated and its frequency, the fibres will react differently, which makes it possible to work the muscles in different ways for different purposes.
When a weightlifter works on his strength he gets powerful muscles to lift heavy loads, but when a runner trains he creates fine and fast muscles so the action of his muscle fibres is different from those of the weightlifter. The same is true of Sport-Elec currents.
So, to sum up, Sport-Elec's electro-stimulation is very effective because we are specialists and we have been working on this subject for 30 years.
Many devices and companies have tried to trivialise electro-stimulation by showing muscles contracting quickly, but these are only fake products which are not capable of really contracting the muscle and working it for real efficiency. They are massage products which only use fast frequencies without the capacity to generate movement.
The Sport-Elec electro-stimulators work, but only if you use them!
The regularity of your electrostimulation sessions will be an essential element.
To prove its effectiveness Sport-Elec has carried out clinical trials and gathered together the scientific bibliography of current knowledge on electrostimulation. The tests were carried out on panels of people corresponding to the users of Sport-Elec.
The clinical tests prove it, in just 2 weeks of use, you can see the results:
+ 205% muscular endurance
+ 80% increase in muscular strength
89% of testers feel their abs toned
80% of testers feel their abs firmed up
Before and after photos of the buttocks, taken during the clinical tests, show the results obtained in just 2 weeks.
The studies carried out by the Regional Institute of Sports Medicine in Haute-Normandie and by the IEC in Lyon show the results after 4 weeks of use for 20 to 30 minutes a day (on 31 people):
- muscle tone + 38
- skin firmness + 31
- skin tone + 36
- muscle volume + 20
Before and after photos taken during the clinical tests show the results obtained in just 2 weeks.
- Results on the buttocks :
- muscle tone + 39
- skin firmness + 52
- skin tone + 46
- muscle volume + 39
Improvement of the general appearance of the figure by about 12%.
Before and after pictures taken during the clinical tests show the results obtained in only 2 weeks.
