Is EMS safe?
There is nothing more important your safety for us. Our manufacturer follows strict guidelines backed by the International Safety Standard for an Electrical Device, IEC60335-1. Our machines work with very low impulse frequency and are unable to give you an electric shock of any kind. The only sensation you will feel are your muscles working better than ever before. These electrical impulses activate your muscles not your organs or heart. Any load on the heart is a product of the workout not EMS and is the equivalent of what you would experience during regular, non-EMS training. In addition, there are no known side effects of EMS training.
