SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

(BOECKH-BEHRENS, W.-U. / GRÜTZMACHER, N. / SEBELEFSKY, J., unpublished dissertation, University of Bayreuth, 2002).

Aim of study
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of extensive EMS training on back ailments.

Methodology
49 employees of the University of Bayreuth with back ailments, 31 women and 18 men averaging 47 years of age, took part in the study voluntarily. The frequency and intensity of the back ailments as well as general complaint status, mood, vitality, body stability, and body contour were determined with the help of initial and subsequent questionnaires. 10 units of EMS training, twice a week, each lasting 45 minutes, were carried out within the following training parameters: pulse duration 4 s, pulse interval 2 s, frequency 80 Hz, rise time 0 s, pulse width 350 s. In the process, a period of about 25 minutes of training, during which various static exercise positions were assumed, followed a habituation period lasting 10-15 minutes in each case for the adjustment of individual pulse strengths. The training period concluded with a five-minute relaxation program featuring a pulse duration of 1 s, a pulse interval of 1 s, a frequency of 100 Hz, a rise time of 0 s, and a pulse width of 150 s.

Results
88.7% of the subjects saw a reduction in back ailments, with significant relief from the complaints in 38.8% of the cases. A slight improvement in the general complaint condition resulted in 41.9% of the cases. The frequency and the intensity of the complaints also declined sharply during the training time frame.

In addition, the EMS training led to the following general effects: 61.4% of the individuals reported an improvement in their general complaint condition, 75.5% saw an improvement in their mood, 69.4% registered increased vitality, 57.1% of the men and 85.7% of the women perceived improved body stability, 50% of the subjects asserted positive effects on their body contour, and 75.5% felt more relaxed after the training.

Conclusion
Whole body EMS training combats back ailments, a common condition, very effectively. The current evidently engages even deep muscles that can only be reached with conventional treatment measures with difficulty. The special whole body EMS training represents a time-saving, very effective all-round training that achieves far-reaching, positive health effects. At the same time, therapeutic as well as preventive objectives are achieved.

(BOECKH-BEHRENS W.-U./SCHÄFFER, G., unpublished dissertation, University of Bayreuth, 2002).

Aim of study
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of EMS training on urinary incontinence.

Methodology
The presence, type and the intensity of urinary incontinence complaints were investigated in 49 individuals with back ailments with the help of initial and subsequent questionnaires (GAUDENZ 1979). A largely slight to moderate form of urinary incontinence was present in 17 individuals (15 women, 2 men) averaging 47 years of age.
10 units of EMS training, twice per week, each lasting 45 minutes, were carried out with the following training parameters: pulse duration 4 s, pulse interval 2 s, frequency 80 Hz, rise time 0 s, pulse width 350 s. In the process, a period of about 25 minutes of supervised training, during which various static exercise positions were assumed, followed a habituation period lasting 10-15 minutes in each case for the adjustment of individual pulse strengths. The training period concluded with a five-minute relaxation program (pulse duration 1 s, frequence 100 Hz, rise time 0 s, pulse width 150 s.

Results
An alleviation of urinary incontinence complaints was achieved in 64.7% of the cases. 23.5% became complaint-free. A decrease in complaints occurred in 24.4%, and 35.9% saw no change. These results corresponded somewhat to the improvements that have been reported for treatments of incontinence with special, local electromuscular therapies (cf. Eriksen 1987, Sebastio 2000, Salinas Casado 1990, Meyer 2001).

Conclusion
Whole body EMS training represents an effective training system. It achieves therapeutic goals such as relief from incontinence and back complaints and preventive goals such as muscle formation, body contouring and improvements in mood, vitality, body stability and general performance.

(VATTER, J., University of Bayreuth, 2003; publication AVM Verlag, Munich 2010).

Aim of study
The objective of this paper was to discover whether positive changes with regard to strength, anthropometry, body awareness, mood, general health factors, back pain and incontinence can be realized through the use of electrically stimulated whole body training in a field test.

Methodology
In four fitness centers, 134 volunteer subjects (102 women and 32 men) averaging 42.5 years of age were surveyed, tested and compared to a control group (n=10) and examined based on age and gender before and after six weeks of training. This involved a determination of maximum strength, physical endurance, body weight, body fat percentage, girth, frequency and intensity of back and incontinence complaints, as well as general complaint status, mood, vitality, body stability and body contouring.
The 12 training units were carried out on a twice weekly basis with the following training parameters: pulse duration/interval 4 s/4 s, 85 Hz, rectangular pulses, pulse width 350 s. An approximately 25-minute training session with static exercise positions followed an habituation period totaling 10-15 minutes. The training session concluded with a five-minute relaxation program (pulse duration 1 s, pulse interval 1 s, 100 Hz, rectangular pulses, pulse width 150 s).

Results
82.3% reduced their back pain, 29.9% were symptom-free afterwards. 40.3% complained about chronic pain beforehand and 9.3% after completion. 75.8% saw improvements in incontinence, and 33.3% were free of symptoms afterwards. The number of medical conditions was sharply reduced (about 50%). Maximum strength rose 12.2%, and muscular endurance 69.3%. Women benefited to a greater degree than men did (13.6% vs. 7.3%). 18 subjects ended the training prematurely. No changes were identified in the control group.

Body weight and BMI remained virtually the same. The body fat percentage fell 1.4% in the training group; it rose 6.7% in the control group. The younger persons undergoing the training lost more weight than the older; no gender- or weight-related variations resulted. Among the women in the training, the body circumferences were reduced significantly at the chest (-0.7 cm), thigh (-0.4 cm), waist (-1.4 cm) and hips (-1.1 cm). Among men, they decreased at the waist (-1.1 cm) with simultaneous growth at the upper arm (+1.5 cm), chest (+1.2 cm) and thigh (+0.3 cm). The control group showed no improvement and expanded at the waist and hips in the same time frame.
Body feeling improved, with 83.0 % exhibiting less tension, 89.1% greater stability, and 83.8 % higher performance. 86.8 % noticed positive body contour effects. 90.0% of the participants perceived the training positively. High intensities brought more significant improvements for the patients with complaints but increased the incidence of muscle aches.

Conclusion
Whole body EMS training represents a persuasive method to reduce extremely common back and incontinence complaints. The increases in strength match the experience with conventional strength training and in some ways are even superior. The body contouring and mood aspects appeal to men and women at all age levels. Thus whole body EMS is an effective form of training appealing to a wide spectrum of target groups.

(Speicher, U. / Nowak, S. / Schmithüsen J. / Kleinöder, H. / Mester, J., German Sport University Cologne 2008; published in “medical sports network” 04/2007, among others.)

Aim of study
The goal of the present study was to compare classic strength training methods with dynamic whole body EMS with regard to their effects on strength and speed.

Methodology
80 sports students were randomized into equal parts into classic training groups for hypertrophy, maximum strength, quickness and muscular endurance, the modern procedure for whole body EMS and vibration, as well as the two mixed groups, whole body EMS/hypertrophy and vibration/hypertrophy. The classic training groups worked on the leg curl and leg extension musculature on (Gym80) machines in the respective groups in 3 series with various additional weights (30-90%, 3-15 repetitions). The EMS groups executed side steps and knee bends without additional weights (load/interval 6 s/4 s, pulse frequency 85 Hz, pulse width 350 μs, bipolar rectangular pulse (60% intensity). Standardization was via visual biofeedback. The training took place twice a week over a period of 4 weeks. Entry and exit tests were carried out on strength diagnostic machines before and after the training as well as after a two-week regeneration phase. The dynamics were measured by means of performance (strength x speed) with 40% and 60% additional load at various angles.

Results
All types of strength training were able to improve maximum performance significantly. Maximum strength improved the most, 16%, within the hypertrophy group, followed by 9-10% for EMS. Only the EMS groups showed significant improvement in speed. The measured speed performance improved by about 30% – significantly more than by classic methods (16-18%). This is apparently due to EMS‘s direct control of fast-twitch muscle fibers.
Mixed training designs such as EMS and classic hypertrophy training show the typical changes that result from the two training stimuli (a maximum 7 % growth in strength and 12% improvement in performance).
Combinations of classic and modern training procedures could thus open up new, promising configurations of stimuli. Long-term effects of whole body EMS must in particular be emphasized. The greatest boosts in performance appear after a two-week period of regeneration.

Conclusion
Compared with various types of training to boost strength and speed, dynamic whole body EMS training with miha bodytec has been shown to be a highly effective training method. Whole body EMS was the sole form of training able to improve maximum sports performance in speed of movement. In addition, pronounced long-term effects are opening up new possibilities in training periodization. An carefully dosed amount of whole body EMS together with the dynamic execution of movement represents a promising combination for strength and speed training.

Aim of study
A substantial change in body composition, with an increase in abdominal body fat and a corresponding reduction in muscle mass, especially occurs in women after menopause. To counter this trend, whole body electromyostimulation training today stands out as an alternative to conventional muscle training featuring smaller orthopedic and cardiac loads at a comparably low training volume. The goal of this pilot study was to establish the applicability and feasibility of EMS training for older people as well as determine the effectiveness of this form of training on anthropometric, physiological and muscular parameters.

Methodology
30 post-menopausal women with long training experience were assigned randomly to a control group (CG: n=15) where they continued their training as usual, and an EMS group (n=15) , which completed a 20-minute whole body EMS training session every four days, in addition to twice weekly strength and endurance training. The most important anthropometric data (weight, size, percentage of body fat, waist circumference, etc.) were determined, along with resting metabolic rate and VO2.

Results
The resting metabolic rate showed significant reductions in the CG (-5.3%, p = 0. 038) and no changes (-0.2 %, p = 0.991) in the EMS group. Despite a medium effect size (ES: 0.62), mere tendencies without significant differences appeared between the EMS group and the CG (p= 0.065). The cumulative value for the skinfold thickness declined significantly in the EMS group (p= 0.001) by 8.6%, compared to a slight, insignificant increase in the control group (1.4%); a difference that turned out to be statistically significant (p = .0001, ES: 1.37). Waist circumference as a criterion for abdominal adiposity fell in the EMS group significantly (p > 0.001) by -2.3 % (vs. CG: +1.0 %, p= 0.106). The corresponding intermediate group difference turned out to be significant (p = 0.001, ES: 1.64).

Conclusion
In summary, improvements in functional parameters such as maximum strength and speed have been demonstrated along with health-relevant effects on body composition. In addition, a high acceptance of EMS training in this population of well-trained, post-menopausal women was established. So, aside from its effectiveness, the practicability of this type of training seems assured.

Aim of study
Sarcopenia and (abdominal) adiposity are closely associated with mortality, multi-morbidity and frailty in older people. The aim of this study was to determine to what extent whole body electromyostimulation (WB-EMS) training can influence body composition and cardiac risk factors in older men with metabolic syndrome.

Methodology
After randomization, a total of 28 men with metabolic syndrome according to IDF (69.4±2.8 years) from the Erlangen area were assigned to a control group (CG: n = 14) or to a  WB-EMS group (n = 14). The 14-week training WB-EMS regime provided a 30-minute endurance and strength program with the application of EMS every 5 days. In parallel, the control group underwent whole body vibration training focusing on “increasing flexibility and well-being.”
The abdominal and whole body fat mass as well as the appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASMM) were selected as  the primary end points. Secondary endpoints were the parameters of the metabolic syndrome according to IDF (waist circumference, glucose, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, systolic and diastolic blood pressure).

Results
At a high effect size (ES: d`=1,33), the change in the abdominal fat mass shows significant differences  (p = 0.004) between WB-EMS and CG (-252±196 g, p = 0.001 vs. -34±103 g, p = 0. 330). Parallel to this, whole body fat diminished by -1350±876 g (p = 0.001) in the WB-EMS group  and -291±850 g (p = 0.307) in the CG (difference: p = 0.008, ES: d`= 1.23). The ASMM also showed significant differences (p = 0.024, ES: d`= 0.97) between the EMS group and vibration control group (249±444 g, p = 0.066 vs. -298±638 g, p=.173). With the exception of a significant inter-group difference (p = 0.023, ES: d` = 1.10) for the waist circumference (EMS: -5.2±1.8 cm, p = 0.001 vs. CG: -3.3±2.9 cm, p = 0.006), no further effects on the parameters of  the metabolic syndrome (see above) were shown.

Conclusion
At a low training volume (about  45 minutes/week) and a short period of intervention (14 weeks), whole body EMS training exhibits significant effects on the body composition of older persons. Thus WB-EMS could be an appropriate alternative to conventional training programs for people with low cardiac and orthopedic capacity.

(Fritzsche, D. / Fruend, A. / Schenk, S. / Mellwig, K.-P. / Kleinöder, H. / Gummert, J. / Horstkotte, D., Bad Oeynhausen Heart Clinic, Herz 2010; 35 (1): 34–40)

Aim of study
The view that moderate endurance training as a part of secondary prevention improves the prognosis for chronic heart insufficiency has been sufficiently validated. Based on experience, however, only a few well supervised, highly motivated and mostly younger patients can be reached with a complementary, sustained, sport therapy in clinical practice. Our own experience with with whole body electromyostimulation of patients with cardiac insufficiency shows a thus far unanticipated potential for the regeneration of neurohumoral, inflammatory and skeletal muscular disease symptoms within the context of systemic CHI disease. Against this background, the effect and acceptance of whole body EMS in patients with cardiac insufficiency was investigated.

Methodology
15 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of CHI completed a 6-month training program (whole body EMS) with a miha bodytec device. The stimulation parameters were defined as 80 Hz and 300 μs at 4 s pulse and 4 s pause for a period of 20 minutes, followed by a cooldown in the 100 Hz range. The patients themselves chose the amplitude (mA), and the subjective feeling of “muscle contraction/current sensation” was set at step 8 of a ten-step scale. The specifications were 40–70 repetitions in the main section, with exercises in isometric holding positions and dynamic motion drills. Cardiac efficiency was assessed in an initial test and after three and six months of training by means of spiroergometry, electrocardiography (EKG) and echo; the metabolic status including creatine kinase (CK) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH); in addition, weight and body fat distribution were determined (impedance scale).

Results
Up to a 96% increase in the oxygen uptake at the anaerobic threshold could be demonstrated (VO2AT 19.39 [± 5.3] ml/kg body weight [BW] before the start of training; VO2AT 24.25 [±6.34] ml/kg BW at the end of the training phase; p < 0.05). The diastolic blood pressure fell significantly (psyst < 0.05; pdiast < 0.001), muscle growth was up as high as 14% at constant weight. The training method was 100% accepted (no dropouts). The patients indicated that their subjective capacity was significantly higher.

Conclusion
For the first time, the study showed the effect of EMS training in patients with cardiac insufficiency. The improvement in the objective assessment of their capacity as well as the optimization of muscle-physiological and metabolic parameters by far surpassed the results of traditional types of aerobic training for primary and secondary cardiac rehabilitation in patients with CHI. The form of training selected holds great potential in the treatment of patients with cardiac insufficiency.

FAQ

EMS is a specialised intensive fitness training using technology to activate musculature.

We combine Electro Muscular Stimulation with basic fitness training to achieve a better training response than conventional training. EMS is a technology already used by pysiotherapists to develop muscular strength in clients. Our whole body EMS training uses the same technology to increase strength, endurance and stability.

EMS training combines cardiovascular and strength training in one session. During training 1/6 of the musculature is recruited increasing Vo2max (Endurance fitness level such as jogging)?? . Furthermore the technology recruits 90% of all muscles in one training session. EMS improves intra muscular coordination and increases the number of mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) resulting in more calories burnt. Additionally slow and fast twitch muscle fibers increase simultaneously.

EMS uses the same nerve pathways as the brain to elicit muscle contraction. The muscle cannot determine if the impulse comes from the brain or from an outside source. If a muscle is pre activated through a physical pose, the impulse from outside only enhances the same muscle recruitment, making the muscle work harder. As such, EMS is an active training technique, as the client has to pre-activate the muscles.

To move any muscle in the body the brain has to send an electric impulse through the nerves. Electro Muscular Stimulation enhances this impulse before it reaches the muscle, resulting in a more intensive muscle contraction.

During training sessions, our clients wear a vest fitted with electrodes as well as arm and leg straps, over a specially designed undergarment.

Before the impulse is emitted onto the body the client pre – activates their muscles through an exercise position. A slight tingling on the skin is expected. This may increase to a light ‘knocking’ feeling in the muscles with higher intensity settings.
After the initial adaptation phase the intensity can be increased, resulting in an improved fitness response.

EMS is safe as it uses low electric frequency to initiate muscle contraction. There are no known adverse effects but caution is still advised for specific medical conditions, as covered in contraindications. The stimulation only occurs on skeletal muscle tissue and not on deeper organ tissue such as the heart.

Electro stimulation therapies have been used and perfected since the 1950’s and are still applied in physiotherapy to build muscles, with low impact on joints.

This technology has been used since the mid 2000’s. Studies since have shown a positive effect on overall fitness, with reduction of lower back pain and increased balance and strength , while maintaining protection of the joints.

The success of EMS training is due to the deep activation of stabilizing muscles, improving posture and overall strength.
The training in Inpuls studios is contraindicated by the following conditions:

  • Epilepsy
  • Artificial cardiac pacemaker
  • Pregnancy
  • Severe circulatory disorders
  • Abdominal wall hernia or inguinal hernia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Tumour disease
  • Arteriosclerosis at an advanced stage, arterial circulatory disorders
  • Severe neurological disease
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Febrile disease, acute bacterial or viral processes
  • Bleeding, increased bleeding tendency (haemophilia)
  • Liver diseases
  • Wounds, inflammation, burns, skin irritations, eczema in the electrode area

*Need to consult doctor

No. Everybody who starts fitness training with an EMS machine is considered a beginner because muscles are activated in greater number than in conventional training. The adaptation time ranges between 4 to 6 weeks. After this time the body has made the necessary changes to increase training parameters and intensity.
EMS trainers are specially educated to operate the machines. As the mental and physical fitness of clients will vary from session to session depending on external life events, a personal trainer can monitor and adjust the training accordingly.
Certainly yes. Hypertrophy (muscle building) and improvements in strength are related to the stimulus intensity. A mid to high intensity is the appropriate range to achieve muscle growth. After 4 EMS sessions a 10% increase in strength has been measured. This result increased to 34% after 6 EMS sessions. For women there was no increase in muscle mass but an increase in strength. These differences are hormone related.
EMS is perfect for weight loss. One result of metabolic training with EMS is the increase of mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell which burns calories). It has been shown that low frequency EMS training results in an increase in mitochondria of up to 20%. Furthermore, studies have shown body fat reduction of up to 4% within a 6 week training cycle.
70% of all back pain occurs in the lumbar area (lower back). Back pain can be the result of muscular imbalances (extensor and flexor muscles in the torso) which can be caused by bad posture. The function of stabilizing muscles is inhibited and the back pain gets worse. After only 2 sessions of EMS 20% of clients reported being pain free, with 50% after 6 weeks. Overall, 88% of participants reduced their back pain dramatically.
EMS training is perfect for mothers to rebuild deep lying pelvic floor muscles and overall body strength. However a doctor’s certificate is required before beginning training. This is usually around 6 weeks after giving birth.
Before any physical exercise the body needs to be hydrated for optimum function. Consume 0,5l water an hour before coming to the studio as well as a small snack such as a banana to ensure blood sugar does not drop. Again hydrate after the session to replace lost fluids.
