Can EMS seniors use it?
- Oct 01, 2018 -

With the increase of age and the continuous reduction of muscle mass, which seriously affects the quality of life of the elderly, is there a safe and effective way to help the elderly avoid muscle mass reduction, and at the same time increase muscle mass under certain circumstances to improve the elderly? What is the quality of life? A study confirmed by the University of Erlangen (Erlangen University) in Germany in 2012 [see Reference 5, 2012, Alternative Exercise Technologies to Fight against Sarcopenia at Old Age: A series of studies and Review.] for Whole-body Vibration (WBV whole body vibrometer); compared with Whole-body Elecromyostimulation (WB-EMS whole body electric pulse training) two new training methods. Both trainings were confirmed to be effective. The device used in the WB-EMS training group was Mihabodytec, and the average age of the participants was 30 65-year-old postmenopausal women, randomly divided into two groups, 15 in the control group. Regularly twice a week, 60 minutes of regular training each time. The EMS training group is additionally performing a 20-minute EMS training in addition to regular training (once every 5 days). The experiment lasted for 14 weeks. Comparison after 14 weeks of training: resting metabolic rate (measuring device: Oxycon mobile, Conshohocken, USA); sebum thickness (Lange, Cambridge, USA), bioelectrical impedance (Biospace, Seoul, Korea) and circumference measurement. After 14 weeks, except for the resting metabolic rate, the other tests showed a significant improvement compared with the control group. In addition, the EMS attendance rate was 98% in 14 weeks compared with 80% of the traditional training. The difference. Experiments show that in addition to the effect gap, EMS training is more acceptable to the elderly than traditional training, and this new type of training has greatly reduced their training pressure.
