How Does Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) work?
First, pads with sticky backing known as electrodes are attached to areas of the body. The electrodes are connected to a machine. Electrical impulses generated by the machine travel thru the electrodes and into the muscles. The electrical impulses mimic the impulses of the nervous system and cause the muscle to contract.
