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 blood.
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.
