Electrostimulation is not meant to be a replacement for traditional strength training exercises. However, electrostimulation does enable you to attain results that were previously unachievable through strength training alone. At best, electrostimulation is meant to be a complement to your existing sports training program. Athletes can utilize a methodology-based sequencing of different training techniques, including electrostimulation, to exploit their distinct and individual benefits for strength training.
The Performance US muscle stimulator is recommended for the fitness enthusiast and/or the athlete who engages in frequent competition. It features a total of five programs with five levels of progression to help competitive athletes achieve the highest level of performance.
Max. output current per channel:
100 mA, for a max. charge of 2200 ohms
Max. quantity of electricity per impulse: 40 microcoulombs
Impulse width: 200 or 400 microseconds (200 for upper limbs and 400 for lower limbs)
Max. rise time for a 100 mA impulse: 2 microseconds
Maximum impulse frequencies: 120 Hz
Channels: Four independent channels with the possibility to
individually regulate the current for each one. They are isolated one from the
other and galvanically grounded.

The Compex Performance US, our newest Muscle Stimulator, is recommended for the fitness enthusiast and/or the athlete which engages in frequent competition. It features a total of 5 programs with 5 levels of progression to help competitive athletes achieve the highest level of performance.
The principle of electrostimulation is very simple and precisely reproduces the processes that occur when our brain orders muscles to contract. When we decide to contract a muscle, our brain sends a signal in the form of an electric current that travels at high speed along the nerve fibers. On arrival at its destination, the signal excites the motor nerve, which transmits the information to the area immediately around the muscle and triggers the muscle contraction. In the case of electrostimulation, excitation occurs directly on the motor nerve using electrical pulses perfectly adapted to guarantee effectiveness, safety and comfort in use. In fact, muscles cannot tell the difference between a voluntary contraction (triggered by the brain) and an electrically induced contraction: the work carried out is exactly the same. It's natural!
