TENS and EMS Technology
EMS (ELECTRONIC MUSCLE STIMULATION)
Electronic muscle stimulation trains your muscles in a way that workouts will not. It is commonly used by professional athletes, body builders, power lifters, professional dancers and a long list of athletes from all kinds of sports to enhance their workouts and training programs. Electric muscle stimulation (EMS) -- also known as neuromuscular electric stimulation (NMES), muscle stim or e-stim -- sends electronic pulses to your motor nerves in order to create muscle contractions.
When the Nampad electronic muscle stimulation is added to your training, it helps maximize your muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of muscle fibers. The Nampad targets both Type 1 slow twitch muscle fibers which impact endurance and Type 2 fast twitch muscle fibers with impact power and explosiveness. Nampad EMS can help your training efficiency allowing for enhanced fitness results.
Our units are often used by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors to deal with pain management, stress, fatigue, soreness, etc. An alternative to pharmaceuticals, our devices will consistently work faster and more effectively than pills or creams.
BENEFITS OF ELECTRONIC MUSCLE STIMULATION
Whether you're a weekend warrior looking to speed your recovery or an elite athlete trying to increase vertical jump, The Nampad devices can help you reach your goal.
NMES has been shown to:
- Increase Muscle Strength and Density
- Larger Muscle Size
- Improved (VO2) Max
- Increase Explosive Strength
- Speed Up Muscle Recovery
Using pre-designed programs, NMES devices can help:
- Increase cardio vascular endurance
- Increase muscle strength
- Speed up recovery
- Enhance local blood circulation
- Improve core strength
Electro stimulation is not meant to replace your fitness routine, but rather enhance the workouts. Athletes can use pre-programmed workouts on the Namirsa device to help maximize their training.
HOW IS EMS DIFFERENT THAN TENS?
EMS (Electrical muscle stimulation) is often confused with TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), a common modality used in physical therapy offices. EMS provides an electrical current at a specifically designed frequency to target motor nerves. These nerves activate the muscle to contract based on the amount of resistance applied through the device. The brain goes through a similar process when actual weights are lifted.
TENS is designed to target sensory nerves. Typically, sensory nerves receive a signal that they relay to the brain, the brain then decides if the stimulus is painful, soft, warm, etc. When using a TENS program the goal is to alleviate pain by either inducing an endorphin release (Low Frequency TENS programs) or to block the pain signals to the brain through the Gate Theory (High Frequency TENS programs) or for long term pain management therapy.
NAMPAD TENS AND EMS COMBINATION
Here at Nampad. We partnered with the best engineers to give you both EMS and TENS technology on the same device. No need to buy separate products and spend more time applying one thing or the other. Just pick from our catalog and confidently use our electrodes for both TENS and EMS benefits.
HOW THE NAMPAD EMS AND TENS WORKS
Super charge your workouts without spending more time in the gym or on the track. Get rid of muscular or nerve pain without the hassle of driving to your chiropractor or physical therapist and pay to get an electronic treatment. With Nampad and it's non-invasive approach, we offer unique programs for your key performance areas, activating more of your muscle fibers, blocking signals of pain, and long term therapy. Use it for:
Warm up your muscles with pre-designed programs so you can make your time in the gym more efficient. Warming up the muscle before a workout has been shown to help reduce the risk of injury during your workout and activities.
Your muscles don't know if you're using EMS or lifting weights. When you do both, The Nampad recruits your muscle fibers to help take your workouts to the next level. The Nampad device allows you to add additional resistance to the muscle without having to lift as must weight. This helps keep stress off of the joints while you to work towards your goals.
Clinical studies have found that EMS (or NMES) can help build muscle and provide a variety of performance-enhancing effects. Some of these effects are increasing muscle density, improving VO2, increasing strength, and power output for strength and cardiovascular performance.
The Nampad has multiple post-workout programs available to jump-start your Recovery. The different programs are designed to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to facilitate the flush of toxins, helping you to recover faster.
IMMEDIATE PAIN RELIEF
With the Nampad Electrodes you can go directly where the pain is and bypass every other treatment conventionally offered by pharmacies or different forms of muscle massages. The result is immediate because of the depth of our stimulation. Comparable to acupuncture and dry needling.
Our testimonials suggest that our clients experience less and less pain the longer they use our devices. Unnecessary pain can be relieved in a long-term way by proper recovery and prevention and our devices are tools for just that. A necessity for your pain management journey.
