Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

EMS is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.

  • Strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes
  • Rehabilitation and preventive tool for people who are partially or totally immobilized
  • Testing tool for evaluating the neural and/or muscular function in vivo
  • Post-exercise recovery tool for athletes


The Traction Table is adjusted so that the patient assumes a position that aligns their spine and allows them to lie straight down on the surface without any pressure points being exerted on the spine.

  • Permits gradulal adjustments allowing for patient’s comfort level
  • Fits patients of all shapes and sizes
  • Increased patients range of motions and spinal flexability
  • Reduce muscle spasms and relaxes muscles
  • Boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage


Physical exercises are generally grouped into three types, depending on the overall effect they have on the human body.

  •  Aerobic exercise is any physical activity that uses large muscle groups and causes the body to use more oxygen than it would while resting.
  • Anaerobic exercise, which includes strength and resistance training, can firm, strengthen, and increase muscle mass, as well as improve bone density, balance, and coordination.
  • Flexibility exercises stretch and lengthen muscles.

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

 ADLs are categorized into basic, self-care tasks acquired starting from infancy, and instrumental, tasks learned throughout adolescence  A person who cannot perform essential ADLs may have poorer quality of life or be unsafe in their current living conditions; therefore, they may require the help of other individuals and/or mechanical devices.

Activities of daily living are activities related to personal care. They include bathing or showering, dressing, getting in and out of bed or a chair, walking, using the toilet, eating, sitting in a car, sitting at a desk, and lifting.
