Staying fit with COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).
With the threat of contracting COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), many of us have decided to stay indoors and self isolate rather than putting ourselves at unnecessary risk contracting the virus.
Our day to day routines have been interrupted by this deadly virus. We are worried about contacting the virus from densely populated areas. Shopping centres, restaurants, gatherings and particularly gymnasiums: being a highest risk area.
But keeping fit indoors is difficult, especially when you have to go out and purchase bulky gym equipment for your home and then not having the space to put it.
So how do we train and stay in shape at home? Together with a balanced diet plan , Maxell’s Electronic Muscle Stimulation devices or EMS are a perfect way to tone and stay in shape.
What is EMS? Also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation or ems, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. EMS has received an increasing amount of attention in the last few years for many reasons: it can be utilized as a strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes; it can be used as a rehabilitation and preventive tool for partially or totally immobilized patients; it can be used as a post-exercise recovery tool for athletes.
The impulses are generated by a device and are delivered through electrodes on the skin near to the muscles being stimulated. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. The impulses mimic the action potential that comes from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The use of EMS has been cited by sports scientists as a complementary technique for sports training.
There are many different EMS units on the market today and also at varying price points that can confuse consumers. So we will try to explain the difference between Maxell’s EMS unit and other on the market
• Advanced Super Lithium Ion battery: Every Maxell EMS unit comprises of a specifically made lithium-ion cell that drives huge dynamic power range. This enables peak performance of the devise throughout the course of the workout and maximum benefit to the user. Other cheap imitations will only the power source of either AA/AAA battery which cannot push that level of power.
• Worlds most advanced EMS Theory. Dr. Toshio Moritani is the world’s leading authority on EMS research with over 30 years research experience has proven that the most effective frequency for EMS training is 20Hz.
All Maxell EMS devises operate in the frequency of 17.5hz – 20hz. This maximises the effectiveness of the workout. Other cheap imitations operate in very low frequency ranges.
• Maxell EMS devises have been tested and approved by the Australian Therapeutics Goods Authority or TGA, giving piece of mind that our EMS devices effectively work and are safe for use. Other cheap imitations are not tested and inconsistent and unsafe electrical signal can burn the skin
If you thinking of your next piece of fitness equipment that will help you stay in shape and tone your muscles: Maxell EMS products are an excellent choice. They have been established as the number 1 seller in the Japanese market. Choose between either the 2 PAD , 4 PAD, or 6 PAD to target hard to exercise muscle areas.
