In a prospective, randomised study, 30 patients with osteoporosis were led through systematic training over 4 months. Group A (n=10) did the ‘back school’ training programme, Group B (n=10) did normal device training and Group C (n=10) only took part in whole body EMS training. Concomitant medication was not altered during the training. At the end of the experiment, there were improvements in bone density measurement and physical capacity (initial examination – original investigation), but only group C (EMS training) exceeded the threshold of significance.

The elimination of excruciating pain (cervical and lumbar syndromes) is certainly one of the main objectives to be set out at the beginning of EMS training. Easy Motion Skin® is ideally suited to achieving this goal in the shortest time possible due to its unique arrangement of electrodes. This is done by strategically building up the low-lying intervertebral muscles. Targeted training stabilises the spine, repositions the vertebrae in line with each other and thus leads to a decrease in mechanical irritation of the intervertebral foramen (foramina intervertebralie), which is where the segmental nerve fibres originate. Whole body EMS training for back pain (Boeckh-Behrens, W.-U., Grützmacher, N., Sebelefsky, J.; Universität Bayreuth, 2002) Goal of the study The objective of the study was to find out the effects of complex EMS training on people suffering from back pain. Results 88.7% of subjects noticed a reduction in back pain, 38.8% of which experienced […]
