Your intelligent training partner!
At The Physio Clinic, we are always looking for new ways to increase your potential, decrease injury and recovery after sports. Compex is a leading brand in portable muscle stimulators, and is unique because it has muscle intelligence (MI) which automatically personalizes the stimulation settings depending on the physiology of each user. It is also very user friendly and backed by clinical trials proving its effectiveness.
How does Compex work?
Compex works by stimulating your muscles and it does this by Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS).
In voluntary muscle activity (you making your muscle work), the brain sends a command to the nerve fibres in the form of an electrical signal. This signal is the transmitted to the muscular fibres which enables the muscles to contract.
Basically, the principle of electrostimulation accurately reproduces the process observed during a voluntary muscle contraction. A voluntary muscle contraction (controlled by the brain) and an electrically stimulated muscle contraction (EMS) are completely identical therefore, the muscle cannot distinguish whether the command comes from the brain or from the stimulator.
Compex has different parameters (number of impulses per second, contraction time, rest time, total programme time) so we can subject the muscles to different types of work. To put it simply different Training, Recovery and Massage settings, all designed to help you perform at your best.
What are the benefits of Compex?
Due to its innovation design and scientifically backed research there are numerous benefits to be had by the user.
