Training for those of advanced years

Tests run on patients with cardiac insufficiency (Fritzsche, van Buuren; North Rhine-Westphalia Heart Centre, Bad Oeynhausen, 2010 and 2012) produced interesting results in that lung function often improved in the patients. This was due to the significant improvement in expiratory capacity, which was caused by the training of the respiratory muscles, especially the intercostal muscles. Patients were better able to expel air which is a decisive improvement for those suffering from obstructive pulmonary conditions.

EMS Training when incontinent

Electromyostimulation (EMS) of the muscles throughout the body – an innovative method to relieve urinary incontinence. Boeckh-Behrens W.-U., Schäffer, G., Universität Bayreuth, 2002 Goal of the study The objective of the study was to find out the effects of EMS training on people suffering from urinary incontinence. Results 64% of participants noticed an improvement in their condition. 23% became symptomless, 25% saw a reduction in symptoms and 36% experienced no change. These results point to the improvements that can be achieved by treating incontinence with specialised, targeted electro-stimulation therapy. Summary Whole body EMS training is an effective work-out for your body. A number of therapeutic goals can be achieved simultaneously such as reduction in urinary incontinence and back pain symptoms combined with preventative goals such as building up muscle, toning the body, improving mood, vitality, body stability and general well-being.

Therapy of varicose veins

Patients with chronic 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!

Anti-ageing effects

As people advance in years, progressive inactivity atrophy starts to affect important hormone-producing structures. These include the thyroid gland, adrenal cortex, the pancreas and the gonads. Consistent EMS training promotes hormone production in the glands and testosterone and growth hormones increase greatly. The ageing process can thus be slowed down using regular EMS training with Easy Motion Skin®. This mostly occurs due to increased hormonal and enzymatic activity, which slows down cell degeneration processes. The effect on increasing libido is a side-effect of EMS training with Easy Motion Skin® that is being documented more and more. Older gentlemen have reported improved circulation in their sexual organs and women experience an upsurge in libido. Both effects can be explained by the significantly increased circulation of the pelvic floor. Sexuality is still a hot issue for those with advancing years! Consulting with the patient on these issues is therefore important.

Strengthening bones

Scientific studies have demonstrated the interaction between physical activity and healthy bone structure. Only if the body is placed under sufficient exertion will the necessary calcium and vitamins be made available for bone revitalisation from one’s diet. There is also the risk of osteoporosis to contend with which is a reduction in mineralisation in the bone structure. Sufferers of this condition may experience bone fractures from everyday activities. The compressive and tensile forces present in EMS training with Easy Motion Skin® increase strength and bone mineralization. And even if osteoporosis has been diagnosed, targeted training using Easy Motion Skin® can slow down, or even reverse the degenerative process. Increasing numbers of younger patients are suffering from osteoporosis all of whom could benefit from a EMS training programme as a preventive measure.

Maintaining the muscular ‘corset’

Your whole body changes as you get older. It leads to a progressive decrease in muscle strength and a reduction in the active muscle profile. High levels of pain often (back, limbs) discourage people from participating in regular training which then increasingly reduces the mobility of the whole body. EMS training with Easy Motion Skin® is an ideal alternative for this group, helping them keep their muscular ‘corset’ in top condition and further improve it. Significant strength gains are also evident in elderly exercisers. The targeted simultaneous training of agonists/antagonists does not involve painful pressure on the joints. The stimulation of low-lying muscle areas (e.g. intervertebral musculature) targets pain in the back and eliminates it permanently. Training is for everybody, regardless of age or level of fitness. Accordingly, EMS training with Easy Motion Skin® now has a prominent role in age rehabilitation, and preventive medicine.
