Whether you want to switch on your muscles and increase muscle tone, firmness, and strength, or to maximise your current exercise routine, Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is the perfect solution for you. Let’s take a deeper dive into what is EMS, the benefits and why you should incorporate it into your everyday routine.
What is Electrical Muscle Stimulation?
EMS is a long-established therapeutic modality (application of thermal, mechanical, electromagnetic, or light energies for a specific therapeutic effect) that works by introducing small electrical pulses into the body to strengthen muscles. Small, precisely timed electrical pulses are sent to the nerve supplying the target muscle telling the muscle fibres to “contract”. The muscle fibres contract in much the same way as if the message had come from the brain while exercising.
Slendertone uses EMS technology to penetrate and stimulate the deepest core muscles. It replicates natural muscle contractions by sending impulses from the Gel Pads to the 4 ab muscles causing them to tighten and tone in just weeks. These nerves branch out to reach all the abdominal muscles (not just those under the pads) causing them to contract and relax naturally, working all the muscles at the same time.
Once you switch on your Slendertone, you will feel it working. A mild pulsing and tingling sensation, followed by the tightening of your abdominal muscles. The muscles should contract smoothly, hold themselves in a tensed position for a few seconds and gently relax again. By the end of the session, your muscles may experience fatigue and it’s in the resting period between toning sessions that recovery, repair and growth happen, building those core muscle groups even stronger.

The Science Behind Muscle Fibers
Muscle makes up 25 – 45% of your body mass. It defines your body shape, posture and movement. It also protects your body and keeps you warm.
Muscle degeneration is common as you get older. There is a linear loss of muscle mass from the age of 30 and a 26% reduction in type II fibre mass by the age of 80. This can be reversed or slowed down by exercise.
When you perform regular exercise over a period of weeks your body adapts. Exercise creates metabolic stress which signals to the body to increase exercise capacity. Muscle is an adaptive structure that responds in a specific way to a specific exercise stimulus.
EMS activates Type II muscle fibres that you can normally only reach with high intensity voluntary effort. Moderate exercise like walking uses more Type I fibres and is great for burning fat and improving cardiovascular fitness. It does not challenge the Type II fibres that are required to improve muscle condition, which is why EMS technology like Slendertone is a great complement to your routine.
