FAQ

Is EMS another new-fangled technology?

EMS know-how is nothing new. As early as in the 1700s, the relationship between electricity and muscle contraction was noted. Electro-Myo (Greek ‘myos’ = muscle) Stimulation (EMS) equipment have been used since the 1950s as a legitimate and drug-free means of enhancing professional athletes’ training, as well as for rehab therapy to restore muscle function after a stroke, serious injury or major surgery. By the late-1960s/early-1970s, Bruce Lee was using EMS as part of his rigorous, multi-faceted training!

Isn’t it unnatural to use electric current on our bodies?

All of our bodily functions work by micro currents that the body naturally produces. Miha bodytec simply mimics the brain, sending electrical impulses to large and deep muscle groups, causing them to alternate between contraction and relaxation. To our muscles, whether impulses are sent from the brain or from an external source makes no difference. The same response is drawn: the muscles contract.

Are the currents safe for the body?

The micro currents used in EMS training are completely safe for the human body; there are no known adverse effects even for long-term use.

What distinguishes miha bodytec from conventional gym equipment?

EMS allows for multiple muscle groups to be stimulated all at the same time, and even at levels beyond voluntary activation. Hence, an intense, whole-body workout in just 20 minutes is possible! Moreover, the level of stimulation of the various muscle groups can be individually controlled in miha bodytec. This caters for personal goals and current sensitivity. No additional weights are used, and there are no high-impact running or jumping, so joints are not stressed and older people can easily use miha bodytec.

Conventional gym training involves working out fewer muscle groups at any one time, hence the demand for much longer time for each equivalent workout. Not everyone has the time or the inclination to ‘be seen’ spending hours at a gym. Moreover, conventional gym training is subject to the body’s natural inhibition mechanism. Lastly, additional weights may be used; excessive weights may precipitate premature wear and tear of the joints.

What is miha bodytec’s trump card over other exercise machine?

Miha bodytec’s time-efficiency (20 minutes per intense, whole-body workout) is unrivalled, and its efficiency as a fitness and even medical solution has been verified by independent studies.

What makes a miha bodytec workout different from regular exercise?

The human body has a natural energy-conserving system, always holding back the activation of some muscle fibres even in the most demanding load. Hence it is impossible to voluntarily activate all fibres in a muscle group simultaneously. EMS, however, bypasses this inhibition and directly stimulates all the fibres in a muscle group. Consequently, muscle tension produced in a maximal EMS contraction is up to 30% higher than a maximal voluntary contraction! (“The truth about EMS” by Charlie Francis)

What do I do in a miha bodytec workout?

Training can be either isometric or dynamic. Every miha bodytec machine comes with a chart of 18 basic isometric positions of various levels of intensity and targeting different muscle groups. The trainer can progress or regress on the difficulty level, according to the client’s goals and needs.

Is miha bodytec only for fit, young people and gym junkies?

EMS training is suitable for people of all age groups and fitness levels, as long as they are in general good health. In fact, the absence of additional weights and high-impact or complicated movements make miha bodytec workouts suitable for older users, too.

Conditions that are incompatible with EMS training include: pacemaker use; implanted difibrilator; advanced arteriosclerosis;  cancer; TB; pregnancy; hemophilia; hernia; diabetes mellitus; serious neurological illnesses (e.g. multiple sclerosis; Parkinson’s disease; epilepsy); fever; metal implants; lymph edema; acute arthritis. The skin must be free of inflammation (pus; scaling; itch)

Can I build a chiseled body through miha bodytec?

miha bodytec has a program using 85 Hertz that is ideal for hypertrophy of muscles. Further, miha bodytec allows the user to target specific muscle groups like those in the arms, chest and legs. Ladies who work out with miha bodytec need not worry about developing a masculine physique, for the female hormone, estrogen, prevents female muscles from developing that way. That’s why female body-builders have to supplement their strict diet with certain hormones in order to bulk up.

How does miha bodytec help me tone my body (slim down)?

Miha bodytec builds up muscle mass. Muscles, even at rest, consume more energy than fat. As the body’s metabolism rate increases with increased muscle mass, excess fat is burned. The focus is on a healthier, fitter and trimmer body with a lower body fat percentage; the focus is not on dramatic weight loss, as is often the case with diets, for muscles weigh more than fat. An added bonus with working out with miha bodytec is that connective tissues are tightened, leading to less cellulite (‘orange peel’ skin) and the prevention of further varicose veins.

What is the main difference between miha bodytec and TENS gadgets?

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) gadgets stimulate localized nerve fibres under the skin, blocking pain signals from inflamed/injured joints or muscles. Therefore TENS is for pain relief. TENS gadgets do not tone or strengthen muscles, unlike miha bodytec.

What is the main difference between miha bodytec and vibration machines?

miha bodytec:

• offers targeted stimulation of individual muscle groups

• allows customized intensity at each muscle group, and reaches deep muscles that are hard to activate voluntarily

• allows the user to work out within a 2m radius. In fact, the user can even work out in conjunction with other cardio-vascular equipment e.g. treadmill, elliptical and bicycle, to enhance the calorie burn.

• Vibration machines stimulate the musculature of the whole body, with no option to isolate the location of, or intensity for, individual muscle groups. Also, the workout is restricted to the platform.

independent studies verifying miha bodytec’s effectiveness

* University of Bayreuth 2003 Miha bodytec training for back ailments resulting from unbalanced muscles: 82% reported less chronic back pain, with 30% cured. Maximum strength among participants increased by an average of 12%, and strength endurance by 69%

* German Sport University Cologne (the world’s largest sport college) & Sport University of Bayreuth (2002, 2003, 2006, 2008. Miha bodytec training for high-performance athletes: Up to 30% increase in maximal power and velocity within 4 weeks of training. Average increase of 4cm in muscle girth in the whole body within 3 months 67% increase in maximal power of the abdominal muscles. 74% increase in explosive force of the core muscles. 8-9% increase in isometric maximal strength. Up to 17% increase in dynamic maximal strength. 40% higher CK-activity. Endurance performance increased in 71% of the subjects. Static strength endurance increased in 34% of subjects after 6 weeks of training. Up to 108% increase in dynamic strength endurance.

*University of Bayreuth & University of Erlangan-Nuremburg (2002, 2003) EMS training for body-shaping: Average loss of 4% body fat. Average loss of 1.5cm off the hips among female subjects. Up to 2.3cm reduction of abdominal girth among male subjects, with a concurrent muscle gain of 1-2cm in legs, upper arms and chest. Overweight subjects lost an average of 3.5kg weight and 9% body fat, plus 6.5cm off the waist girth and 2cm off the upper arm girth
