Contraindications (relative)

Acute arthritis can be the first manifestation of a range of joint conditions.

This is why EMS training should only take place after consulting with your doctor even if the EMS training can be designed in such a way as to avoid additional strain on the joints.

Exogenous implants

What we mean here are large-scale osteosynthesis implants within the direct vicinity of the stimulation electrodes. It may lead to an undesirable heating effect.

Menses

In menses, the stomach electrodes can lead to an increase in bleeding of the uterus. In individual cases this leads to an intensification of the menstrual period. However, we do not see menstruation as a contraindication for EMS training. Nevertheless, the trainee should be aware of this and make their own decision on whether to carry out training that particular week. But many female trainees do not miss their regular EMS training. The endorphins released during training simply make you too happy!

Varicose veins

Patients with chronic varicose veins or vein thrombosis benefit from EMS training. The stimulation of muscles causes an activation of the ‘muscle pump’ which leads to the venous return stream to the heart becoming accelerated and the extent of the expansion of the venous plexus is reduced. Watch out if you have thrombophlebitis! These patients should really be in hospital!

Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema is a visible and palpable fluid accumulation in the interstitium (intercellular space). It is caused by mechanical insufficiency of the lymphatic system. In such cases, patients’ doctors should be the ones to recommend EMS training.

Pericardial effusion, pleural effusion, ascites

The build-up of fluids in body cavities can have a range of causes such as right-sided heart failure or peritonitis. Treatment is targeted at the cause so a differential recommendation for EMS training is required.

Thrombosis and thrombophlebitis

Patients with chronic varicose veins or vein thrombosis benefit from EMS training. The stimulation of muscles causes an activation of the ‘muscle pump’ which leads to the venous return stream to the heart becoming accelerated and the extent of the expansion of the venous plexus is reduced. Watch out if you have thrombophlebitis! These patients should really be in hospital! It is a clear contraindication

Sunburn, open skin lesions, skin eczema

It stands to reason! Chronic conditions such as psoriasis vulgaris are excluded. You have nothing to worry about when using Easy Motion Skin® since the device will not have been worn by other people and there is no evidence that stimulating currents worsen psoriasis. It’s quite simply the most efficient form of training in the world.
