These sports often come with challenges of their own, from injuries to fitness demands. In recent years an increasing number of research publications highlighted the benefits of EMS training for professional and recreational athletes.
A systematic review of sports science research by the German Sport University Cologne in 2011 established that EMS training is a promising alternative to conventional strength training. Apart from enhancing strength parameters and motor abilities, the time-efficiency factor is an added advantage in professional sports. Since the introduction of whole body EMS training devices, as used at BODYTEC, research shows significant improvement of training in maximum strength, speed, jumping and running performance.
