Facts About Electronic Muscle Stimulators

Muscle stimulation is the process by which they are excited to contract and relax in a rhythmical way. Muscles generally receive signals from the brain. The central nervous system relays impulses that cause the muscles to contract. Electronic muscle stimulators aim to mimic the action of the central nervous system by production of the signals. The machine used, Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), delivers the signals using electrodes and onto the skin close to the muscles being stimulated.
