Here’s a fun fact: did you know that the SIXPAD ABS FIT was inspired and modelled after Ronaldo’s six-pack abs?

This article digs deeper into the story behind SIXPAD. It showcases the development of Electric Muscle Stimulation and illustrates how Ronaldo became the brand ambassador of this amazing line of fitness gear.


The Genesis of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)


Developed by renowned Emeritus Professor Toshio Moritani from Kyoto University, the concept Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) at 20 Hz was established as a means to diminish bodily fatigue and enhance performance in a shorter amount of time. After years of research, Professor Moritani uncovered a ground-breaking discovery. He discovered that an electrical frequency of 20 Hz could cause effective muscle contractions. In other words, EMS at 20 Hz could enhance performance to give its user a complete workout! It could also reduce inflammation and promote blood stimulation to alleviate pain in the body. In the long run, EMS could be used to address critical physical illnesses.

Professor Moritani strived to share this pioneering innovation with the world. But what was the best way to spread awareness about this state-of-the-art technology?

He found his answer in renowned Football star, Cristiano Ronaldo.



A Football Icon, An Inspiration

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born and raised in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. Ronaldo started playing amateur football at a tender age. Today, he is a world-class football player with thousands of fans around the world. Standing at 1.87 m tall, he was an inspiration to many aspiring footballers and fitness personnel across the globe. As a professional football player, Ronaldo needed to find a way to enhance his training whilst also caring for his physique.

Professor Moritani admired Ronaldo’s dedication to his career and his passion for football. Using Ronaldo as his inspiration, Professor Moritani strove to develop a top-notched line of fitness gear that would inspire its users to workout in an efficient and effective manner.


The Development of SIXPAD Training Gear


Using Ronaldo as his inspiration, Professor Moritani and his team went on a mission to develop sustainable and effective workout gear based on EMS technology. After backbreaking research into Ronaldo’s training and lifestyle as well as EMS for muscle recovery and performance enhancement, Professor Moritani uncovered the backbone of SIXPAD Training Gear – CMM Pulse Core Technology. In April 2017, SIXPAD’s first line of EMS devices were launched.

Building on the foundation of helping users achieve their fitness goals whilst alleviating bodily discomforts, SIXPAD continues to innovate and inspire. The fitness line is made for home-use and can be strapped on to give its users a full workout anytime, anywhere.


Conclusion: The Future of EMS

The future is uncertain, but SIXPAD remains committed to offer ground-breaking fitness gear that will change the way you work out. With Ronaldo as their official brand ambassador, the team at SIXPAD prides itself in offering a line of revolutionary fitness gear. It seeks to continue offering creative and innovative EMS workout gear for their customers round the globe even as years down the road.
