Fitness-kit.net: A stimulating subject

Kate Corney rounds up the latest news from the world of EMS (electric muscle stimulation) For more information, log onto www.fitness-kit.net and type the company name under ‘keyword search’

By Kate Corney, The Leisure Media Company | Published in Health Club Management 2017 issue 3

Next generation EMS

Amplitrain – maker of the AmpliTrain Pro – has created the AmpliCube, which the company calls a ‘completely new generation of EMS device’.

The AmpliCube is designed to exercise the entire body, achieving electric muscle activation through a medium-frequency current of 2000Hz. The device connects magnetically with the AmpliSkin suit, allowing up to four people to workout simultaneously with the training device.

The system is operated via a touchscreen interface, with a 15-inch monitor built into a console. Meanwhile, an app – the AmpliApp – manages, documents and plans your training, with Android smartphones able to connect with the system via Bluetooth 4.0.

Presented in an aluminium casing, it measures 13 x 13 x 15cm and weighs only 1.5kg.

MIHA heads to London

miha bodytec is opening a new sales centre in London. Opening at the start of 2017, on the occasion of the company’s 10th anniversary, the UK’s wholly-owned subsidiary of miha bodytec will manage all UK sales going forward. MD of miha bodytec, Jürgen Decker, sees the branch office in the UK as a logical step.

“Along with the rapid growth of EMS in Germany, we observe a growing international demand. Great Britain is one of the most important European fitness markets,” he says. “Our own presence here is overdue: it will allow us to offer the fastest delivery possible, as well as the same high-quality support as we offer in Germany.”

The EMS expert, based in Germany, has an export share of approximately 75 per cent of its sales volume, across more than 30 countries.

The freedom to move

The Easy Motion Skin EMS system gives users the ability to move and train freely while wearing it, whether the goal is explosive strength, endurance, anti-cellulite or body relaxation.

The elastic one-piece wireless tracksuit comes with a MotionSkin PowerBox, which connects to iPads and iPhones via Bluetooth and stimulates muscles with low-frequency electric pulses.

The PowerBox is the heart of the system and acts as an interface between the EMS training app and the MotionSkin, which carries 20 hours of battery charge.

Based on the idea that EMS becomes fully efficient during free movements, Easy Motion Skin is designed to allow the user to do any workout or HIIT training, with or without a trainer.
