How Does It Work?
Working on the principle of EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) they generate safe, gentle electrical pulses that are delivered onto your skin via the pads.
These electrical pulses activate the nerves which control the muscles. The pulses then contract and relax the muscle in a way similar to an exercise routine.
The pulses generated have been designed to imitate natural muscular contractions.
The Bodi-tek EMS Toning Shorts are designed to fit a wide range of waist sizes from 8 - 16 equivalent to waist size 29" to 41".
The hook and loop fasteners ensure that the shorts sit comfortably and discreetly.
How Does It Feel?
This is the same system as TENS machines use, and if you haven't tried EMS it is a perfectly natural question to ask!
The pulses give a mild tingling sensation and as the intensity is increased you will notice muscle contractions.
The muscle contractions are smooth and each will start with a slow rise, hold in a contracted position for a few seconds and then gently relax.
Contraction and relaxing periods vary depending on the program used.
How should I Use Them?
Within the first week you should give your muscles time to adjust to the new work-out.
Use the unit once or twice (with a minimum of 4 hours resting in-between) a day for a maximum of 12 minutes per muscle group.
Programs with larger pulses/second figures give more intense muscle workouts.
We suggest that you start with a mild workout and change to more intense programs later.
