What happens is that more muscle fibers contract and
relax at this “biologically special” rate. And that’s
where the BionicGym “magic” comes in. Impulses through
the BionicGym wraps stimulate the motor-neurons
(nerves-to-muscles) in the legs and gluteal muscles
(bum), telling them to contract repeatedly. (The
muscles relax or lengthen by themselves).
This underlying technology,
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
- also known as EMS and TENS - has been around for
60-70 years. It was thought that this technology could
not provide aerobic exercise. (Even the FDA thought it
wasn’t possible.) BionicGym has changed all that.
By inducing enough muscles to actively contract at
optimal rates, they shout out for blood to supply
oxygen and energy. When that happens, your heart
pumps harder and faster to deliver this
The result is that BionicGym trains both your cardio
system and your muscles. You become more breathless
and in time heat up – even sweat. After all, shivering
is nature’s way of warming you up.
