WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COMPEX MUSCLE STIM?
Question by: Adam Appleton on 12 Feb 2020 11:33
Compex muscle stim uses very high quality and high comfort level currents.
Muscle stim can be used in an intense way in complete safety:

- Without causing nervous fatigue
- By protecting your joints
- Electrostimulation has no side effects; it is a non-invasive treatment method, often an effective alternative to drugs, for pain treatment.

WHAT IS MUSCLE STIMULATION?
Question by: Adam Appleton on 12 Feb 2020 12:06
Muscle Stimulation is a tried and tested medical treatment method, used for rehabilitation, pain treatment and for training sportsmen and women.

The working principle behind muscle stim is very simple. It faithfully reproduces the process by which muscle contractions are controlled by the brain.

So, with muscle stim, the activity in your muscles is triggered by electrical impulses sent by our devices to the motor nerve. Your muscle cannot distinguish between a contraction triggered by your brain and one triggered by muscle stimulation. This is known as electrically induced contraction.

CAN MUSCLE VOLUME BE INCREASED WITH COMPEX?
Question by: Adam Appleton on 12 Feb 2020 12:10
Yes. The work carried out during Compex sessions (depending on the programme selected) induces adaptations in the muscle fibres, with one of them being the increase in muscle volume.
