EMS pain relief units penetrate deeper than a traditional TENS to help reduce muscle atrophy.
EMS units (or Electrical Muscle Stimulation) help reduce or prevent muscle atrophy, the weakening and then loss of muscle tone that happens after injuries or surgery. It helps increase blood flow and range of motion and increase muscle strength and endurance. It can also help with pain management by assisting in relieving muscle pains from spastic muscles, tight muscles or sore muscles. EMS signals pentrate deeper than TENS signals and the frequency is usually above 200 Hz.
