Functional electromyo stimulation (F-EMS)  is a process through which low-level impulses are used to stimulate muscles, forcing them to contract – conditioning and strengthening them.

FEMS mimics the action of the central nervous system, activating muscles using external impulses. The impulses reach deep muscle layers which are hard to activate through conventional training. Your muscles will not tell the difference, but work out much more effectively.

Studies have shown that even trained and elite athletes, despite their already high level of fitness, are able to significantly enhance their level of strength. TECNATIVES offers a promising alternative to traditional strength training for enhancing the strength parameters and motor abilities.

The cliché “time heals all things” is usually the rule of thumb when it comes to rest and recovery post-exercise. However, when it comes to a speedy recovery, it has been proven that FEMS methods are potentially effective in accelerating recovery, and increasing work capacity at a faster rate than previously established methods.

What’s more, using electronic stimulation in training improves the order of muscle recruitment velocity. Normally, your body would use red fibre (slow twitch) first to do a specified movement, followed by white fibre (fast twitch) when needed. However, with FEMS, the order is reversed with the white fibres activating first. This type of “muscle training” is extremely beneficial for all speed, power and strength athletes.
