Differences between the types of TENS/EMS Stimulators


The EMS-179 is a portable muscle stimulation system for use in the clinic, home or sports facility. As a battery or A/C powered instrument, the EMS-179 works by transmitting electrical impulses through the skin surface to the nerves that cause muscle contractions which are very effective in the treatment of many acute and chronic conditions.


The EMS-179 is a 4 channel 8 pad system housed in an attractive and sturdy carrying case for use as an office instrument and portable therapy unit. It is powered by 4 "D" cells (not included) or with the A/C adapter and is designed with reliability and comfort in mind. The EMS-179 System incorporates pre-programmed pulse train rise and fall times which cause a gradual buildup of the electrical stimulus instead of a sharp and sudden pulse. This results in greatly increased patient comfort and compliance. The device is widely used in Orthopedics, Physical Medicine and Therapy, Sports Medicine, Chiropractic and Podiatry.

Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a technologically advanced science that uses very mild electrical current to passively exercise your muscles and give you tone, definition, and a figure you can easily maintain and sculpt in the comfort of your own home.


Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a revolutionary muscle exercise concept for use in your own home. Our EMS systems are portable, lightweight electronic units that have been scientifically designed and proven to exercise body muscles fast, efficiently & effectively through a series of stimulated contraction & relaxation phases. For years Soviet and Eastern block Olympic contenders have used muscle stimulators to build the same rippling muscles that steroids promised.

Now the practice has finally reached the West. Once only available to doctors and therapists, EMS is recommended for anyone participating in bodybuilding, power lifting, martial arts, boxing, or anyone simply wishing to achieve their optimal athletic physique. EMS is used extensively throughout the world. The Medical Advisory Committee has allowed the use of EMS systems by athletes since the 1972 Olympics. Bodybuilders, professional athletes, physiotherapists, sports doctors and US/Canadian Track and Field athletes use EMS systems to supplement their regular workout routines. Many doctors use EMS units to aid in the rehabilitation of muscles following injury and to ease patients chronic muscle spasms and pain.


The EMS 4000 has four individually controlled outlets known as channels. Each channel has two wire connections with two pads attached at the end of each wire. The EMS unit delivers a gentle electronic impulse to your muscles causing the muscle to contract. By placing a pair of pads on a particular muscle group, your muscles respond to the impulses that are generated by contracting and relaxing rhythmically as instructed by you through the unit. When a muscle contracts as a result of a unique EMS/TENS signal, the chemical changes taking place within the muscles are similar to those associated with voluntary contraction in "normal exercising". These chemical reactions which result from muscle contractions utilizes glycogen, fat and other nutrients stored in the muscle. These resulting series of muscle contractions will enable an individual to tone, strengthen, and combat flabbiness while improving contour. Just strap it on while you're resting, reading, surfing the net or watching T.V. and watch your body transform right before your eyes.


Caution: Federal Law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician or other practitioner licensed by the state.
