Study situation on whole-body EMS
There are a number of studies on the effects, benefits and risks of whole-body EMS applications. These studies focus on various properties such as anthropometric parameters, physiological performance, energy consumption and blood values. However, many of these studies lack appropriate control groups, leading to an increased risk of bias. Many studies also investigate very specific target groups (e.g. older women with sarcopenia and obesity). Consequently, due to the limited amount of scientific evidence, it is not possible to make definitive and universal statements about the effects of WB-EMS. There is therefore a need for further scientific studies on WB-EMS. Tecnatives invests in the independent scientific investigation of WB-EMS to expand our knowledge in this area.
