What is EMS (Muscle Stimulation) Neuromuscular Stimulation?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscular injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise passively. It is a product derived from the square waveform, originally invented by John Faraday in 1831. Through the square wave pattern it is able to work directly on muscle motor neurons.

This is being widely used in hospitals and sports clinics for the treatment of muscular injuries and for the re-education of paralyzed muscles, to prevent atrophy in affected muscles and improving muscle tone and blood circulation.

What are benefits of EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation)

1. Relaxation of muscle spasms

2. Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy

3. Increasing local blood circulation

4. Muscle re-education

5. Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis

6. Maintaining or increasing range of motion

How does Muscular Stimulator work? The EMS units send comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerves in the treatment area. Because the stimulation of nerves and muscles may be accomplished by electrical pulses this modality can help prevent disuse atrophy. Accordingly, incapacitated patients can receive therapeutic treatment to create involuntary muscle contractions thereby improving and maintaining muscle tone without actual physical activity.

The EMS Muscle Stimulator is an easy to use system. A marvel of miniaturized electronics the lightweight power unit transmits electrical pulses through the skin surface and stimulates motor units (nerve and muscles). The electrical impulses are "ramped" so that they closely emulate natural muscle contractions.

EMS is helpful in conditions where the reduction of physiological range of motion is due to or the result of fractures with consequent immobilization, operative intervention, or arthroscopy, in shoulders, knees, and backs.

EMS units are used to treat a number of medical conditions that require muscle stimulation. The most common are: long-term disuse after fracture or prolonged bed rest, progressive strengthening for join and muscle injury, immoblized limbs, atrophy prevention , stress incontinence, muscle weakness, improving muscle tone, after weight loss or childbirth, muscle spasticity following a stroke.

Most common uses: Prevent or retard disuse atrophy, strengthening programs, reeducate muscles, postop orthopedic surgery, joint replacement, gait training, shoulder subluxation and reduction of muscle spasms.


Electrotherapy and Chronic Pain

Electrotherapy can help relieve and manage chronic pain. This kind of pain is usually the result of an accident or other injury, perhaps to the lower back or a joint in the hand or knee. If it lasts long enough, the pain itself becomes a disease. The most common forms of chronic pain are back pain and arthritis.

Chronic pain is often treated with over-the-counter painkillers and prescription drugs. These drugs may have unwanted side effects and can be very expensive.

A Review of Electrical Muscle Stimulation



Electrical Muscle Stimulation, also known as EMS, is a very popular way to shake the muscles and prevent muscle atrophy. Some patients need it desperately, thatís why a lot of doctors use it on a regular basis. EMS is good when the patient has been suffering from strong injuries and is put to bed for a long time. Muscle atrophy can be a consequence of this, so electrical muscle stimulation is the only way for these people to get their muscles strong again.

Electrical muscle stimulation is basically done by stimulating some parts of the body. For this purpose, an electronic device is used, the little electrodes of which are out directly on the body areas that need to be stimulated. A slow tension is then put on the wires, and muscle stimulation is done. By dialing the voltage, you can pick different pressure on the muscles, for creating various effects.

The electrical impulses are a strong stimulation for the muscles, and they really suffice in making the body feel in good shape again. The low voltage is usually done on smaller, involuntary muscle groups, which cannot be stimulated in other ways. The low voltage also stimulates the brain, which starts sending impulses through the involuntary muscles, thus stimulating them as well.

You may as well buy the device from an online store, or any kind of specialty store, and you can find for the meager price of twenty bucks, batteries and electrodes included.

Many people find their final relief when using the EMS device. It is so practical and easy to use. There are few things easier to comprehend. You can find cheap battery-loaded devices, as well as electronic plug-in stimulators, both for no big costs. The best thing about these devices is that you can also use them to lose weight and give tone to your muscles. You can make your muscles stronger and fitter. This kind of stimulation is considered a safe way to keep a good form.

  • I was very happy with the service that I got from the staff at LG Med Supply. I looked all over the net for over a year to see who was the main Co. that had not only what I needed but who was the Co. that seemed to be the main Manufacturer of the Tens Unit. Then I started checking who had all of the Conductive Designed Pads That my Dr. wanted me to have and here again LG Med Supply had all of the items and were offering the best prices on all of the items that I needed. LG Med Supply was hands down the best in all of the categories as far as who had all of the items that I needed from the Back Belt Strap/Neck electrode/Shoulder and Knee Conductive Designed Pads that my Dr. wanted me to start therapy with. LG Med Supply is the only web site that had a vast selection of different shaped Electrodes which deliver a totally different stimulation that really gives you a completely different feeling then a straight square pad electrode. Thank You LG Med Supply for being there in my time of need. Carter

  • Well I'm amazed because it came like the very next day. If it wasn't the very next day, it was definitely the day after that. Wow, they are the fastest I ever did business with online. I'm gonna assume they keep a stock in major cities somehow. Thank you for the opportunity to give them feedback because they do deserve it. Greg L Newman
