WHAT IS EMS?
ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION
EMS uses low- and mid-range frequency impulses to activate 90% of muscle fibers, engaging both small and large muscle fibers through functional body movements (voluntary) and in static positions (involuntary). EMS helps reduce stress and impact on the joints, ligaments, and tendons while toning, strengthening, and assisting in muscle mass gains.
THE EVOLUTION OF EMS
BIOPHYSICS BEHIND EMS
- Human body fluids are electrolytes that equal conductors
- Most organs are ordered by electrical impulses
- Skeletal muscles receive electrical impulses from the (CNS) Central Nervous System
- Muscles contract through electrical impulses (bioelectronics) in normal state
- Electrical impulses can be prepared artificially and delivered into the body
Nuzuna’s LIT wearables make use of this effect with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), which is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. The impulses generated by the LIT system are delivered through pre-placed electrodes in the LIT-SUIT, LIT-PANT, or LIT-VEST.
LIT wearables utilizes between 30 HZ to 2850 HZ to target motor nerves and stimulate Type I & Type II muscle fibers, simultaneously activating 90% of muscle fibers in the body. These impulses can significantly increase the body’s natural muscle contractions and help stimulate injured muscles and manipulate nerves to reduce pain.
100% BACKED BY SCIENCE
Muscle atrophy or loss of muscle tissues was very common among astronauts due to lack of gravitational force on the International Space Station. In 1970s, NASA scientists began developing EMS technology to help astronauts build and maintain muscle tissues in space without needing gravity. Later in the 1980s, EMS became a staple device used in physical therapy and hospital settings for several decades. It is designed to stimulate both sensory nerves and muscle fibers more effectively. EMS is a painless procedure that helps accelerate recovery and providing relief from painful or uncomfortable symptoms.
