I-motion training is intense, but more enjoyable and comfortable than ever. This EMS device at imotion-ems.com is the only one that automatically recalibrates programs within a training protocol and can intelligently auto-adjust the impulse intensity in each muscle group.
Are there contraindications of electrostimulation?
The answer is yes, as with everything in life. Electric muscle stimulation is not always recommended, but its contraindications are very punctual. For example:
- In people who have electrical implants, such as a pacemaker, it is advisable to consult with a specialist doctor.
- In pregnant women, high intraabdominal pressures and strong pressures on the pelvic floor can cause serious damage to the fetus.
- In people who have recently been operated on, as it can influence the recovery process.
- In case of any thrombosis, there is a risk for blood clot with EMS.
- If you have a serious illness, infections or inflammatory processes, as pathogens could reach the heart and cause a heart disease, myocarditis, etc.
- In people in the late stages of arteriosclerosis due to high muscle tensions. Thrombotic occlusion could lead, in the worst case, to a stroke.
- If you have acute heart arrhythmias, where it is recommended not to make an intensive physical effort.
- If you have diabetes mellitus, it is also advisable to consult a doctor beforehand to avoid any hypoglycemic attack.
- If you have acute arthritis, because it increases the risk of overheating.
- In people with neurological diseases and epilepsy, such as multiple sclerosis, spinal paralysis or Parkinson's.
- In acute back pains that have not been diagnosed it is also not recommended to start an intensive training with muscle electrostimulation.
- In people with abdominal or inguinal hernias, due to high intra-abdominal load pressure and strong muscle tension in the abdomen and pelvic floor.
- People prone to fluid retention. Although low-frequency currents are not contraindicated in this case, it is advisable to consult your doctor in advance.
- When you have a burn, because placing electrostimulation in the vicinity of burned areas may cause inflammation.
As you can see, in most cases it is advisable to consult a specialist who can guide you in the use of EMS against a certain disease or health problem. However, these contraindications are very specific cases.
In other situations, i-motion has the most advanced equipment to train with EMS in a totally comfortable and safe way, although it is always good to know when to use and when NOT to use this technique.
