  • The NSCA also conducted a study on the effects of EMS on high performance sports: strength, speed, power, jumping and sprinting ability.

  • The test group was comprised of untrained subjects, trained athletes and elite athletes.

  • Scientific analysis showed significant gains and improvements in all areas, in all fitness levels.

  • Even elite athletes at an already high level of fitness, were able to significantly enhance their performance across the board.

  • The study concluded that EMS is effective in developing physical performance, and stated that EMS is a “promising alternative to traditional strength training."

  • The Association’s study into muscle recovery methods on baseball players indicated that EMS is an effective tool for muscle restoration between innings of pitching.
