Proven to be the most optimal frequency for building muscle definition, tone & define with EMS Training Gear at 20 Hz!

Core Technology

EMS, the technology electrically stimulated muscle workouts

Normally, your muscles are made to move by signals transmitted by your brain. However, EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) uses electrical stimulation to create an involuntary muscle contraction. Using the SIXPAD EMS training gear allows you to train your muscles anytime and anywhere, even while doing household chores or simply reading a book. What’s more, you don’t even have to break sweat.

EMS training for easy body toning

Muscles are made of extremely fine fibers which can be classified as slow-twitch and fast-twitch muscle fibres. As fast-twitch muscle is easy to build, it characteristically leads to a toned body if you train. On the other hand, with ordinary training it cannot be stimulated without imposing a load heavy enough to put you out of breath, and thereofore it requires hard training. EMS allows an approach which targets fast-twitch muscle even under a slight load, and therefore it can easily produce a change in appearance.

SIXPAD EMS equipment features an optimum frequency of 20Hz extrapolated from the world’s most advanced EMS theory.

Tests have shown that when frequencies higher than 20 Hz are used, muscle tension falls off after about 60 seconds. The muscle’s neurophysiological requirements cannot be met, and the effect of training leaves rather a lot to be desired. The conclusion is that when 20 Hz is used, muscle tension is maintained over time, which allows for sustained efficient training.

When exercised, muscles use energy and consume oxygen. It has been demonstrated that more oxygen is consumed and training efficacy is higher at 20 Hz than at other frequencies.
