The Science Behind Neuro20
is Evidence-Based,
Supported By Research

There are thousands of studies highlighting the positive metabolic and physiological effects of electrical muscle stimulation, as well as the future potential of electrical muscle stimulation as it relates to recovery and human performance. These studies conclude with similar analyses that electrical muscle stimulation is an effective and practical supplement to any practitioner-led program to restore movement and improve the ability to perform activities of daily living.

Here are just some of the many relevant studies that support electrical muscle stimulation for medical purposes:

Whether used alone to improve motor impairment or embedded within complex systems to create functional multi-joint movement, the potential that electrical muscle stimulation holds for rehabilitation, recovery, and human performance is significant.

Neuro20 has a database of studies relevant to the effectiveness of the Neuro20 approach to Whole Body Electrical Muscle Stimulation (WB-EMS), with some parameters as the technology developed for the Neuro20 PRO WB-EMS Smart Suit is advanced beyond the majority of products currently on the market.
