STIMFIT AbBelt Electronic Muscle Stimulator
The STIMFIT Electrical Muscle Stimulator (EMS) is a small and powerful device intended to stimulate healthy muscles in order to improve or facilitate muscle condition and performance. Resulting from more than 20 years of research in the medical field, the various types of muscle work that the STIMFIT device imposes on the stimulated muscles are able to improve or facilitate muscle performance, in addition to firming, tightening and strengthening muscles.

The STIMFIT Electrical Muscle Stimulator provides six (6) muscle stimulation programs. These training programs correspond to the type of muscle performance that you wish to improve or maintain.
STIMFIT EMS Training Programs
Resistance – 30 minutes
The stimulation sequences in this program are intended to increase the time a muscle is able to maintain high power work over short time periods. The intensive contractions of stimulated muscles may induce an exhaustion state in these muscle fibers without psychological fatigue and little cardiovascular stress. This program, like physical resistance training, activates anaerobic metabolism and induces the production of lactic acid. The program targets fast and slow-twitch muscle fibers.
Strength – 30 minutes
This program imposes high power on muscle fibers and is intended to develop the maximum contractile force in a muscle. Because this program increases force of any muscle, it is great for any athlete, professional or amateur. The program targets fast-twitch muscle fibers.
Explosive Strength – 20 minutes
This program is designed to increase maximal muscle force and speed at which this maximal force is achieved. It can help improve performance of athletes in sports that require fast bursts of force in a short time – e.g.; sprinters, football players, weightlifters, etc. The program targets very fast-twitch muscle fibers.
Endurance – 40 minutes
The activity (contraction) pattern imposed on muscles during this program resembles the activity of voluntary endurance exercises. It develops the aerobic type of metabolism in muscle fibers and increases their capillary blood supply. It trains the muscles to maintain effort for longer periods required in endurance sports like marathons, long-distance bicycling, etc. Impulse sequences in this program are designed to improve the body’s resistance to fatigue (improved endurance). The program targets very slow-twitch muscle fibers.
STIMFIT EMS Special Programs
Active Recovery – 24 minutes
This program considerably speeds up muscle recovery and should be used after sport events or after intense training. This program reduces muscular stiffness, and soreness and permits muscles to recover back to their normal performance levels after heavy workloads. The active recovery program consists of low frequency muscle twitches that provide a feeling similar to a massage. This 24-minute program effectively flushes metabolic waste out of your muscle and brings fresh nutrients and blood into the muscle. This helps reduce muscle soreness. In case you have a tired/sore back you can use the Active Recovery program to rejuvenate your muscles.
Potentiation (Warm-up) – 4 minutes
The Potentiation program prepares muscles to work faster and easier at the very beginning of training or effort. It is useful for any kind of active sport, especially before competition, as it gives the muscles a chance to become “better prepared” before starting rapid physical movements requiring a lot of energy. In a “potentiated” muscle,
maximum strength can be reached easier and faster. When used before sports competition, this program helps to obtain maximum athletic performance from the start. This program is recommended for use especially before basketball or football games and before cycling or running events. It facilitates top athletic performance at the very beginning of a game or race.
