We deem severe arterial circulatory disorders (e.g. gangrene of the feet in diabetics, ‘smoker’s leg’) to be contraindications. This is because EMS training increases muscle tone of even the indirectly affected muscles and can therefore lead to an imbalance between oxygen supply and oxygen demand in under supplied tissue regions. Under certain circumstances, this could lead to a general deterioration of the overall condition. Tip: If you want to do training, then please consult with your doctor and submit a letter of consent.
EMS training leads to a general increase in metabolism. It seems possible that this acceleration could lead to increased cancerous growth. There are no available scientific studies. Training should only be carried out if expressly requested and upon submission of a letter of consent and, wherever possible, after consultation with your doctor.
There are various forms of haemophilia. However, all of them involve the lack of one or more blood clotting factors. In some circumstances, over straining yourself can induce bleeding. We do not want to be responsible for this. Scientific studies on this subject, however, are not available. Tip: If you want to do training, then please consult with your doctor.
