Compex launches a new muscle stimulator in the United States. The Performance US was designed 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.
Electrostimulation therapy has been widely used and popular among European athletes for over two decades. However, the American athlete/consumer is likely to be a bit more wary to eagerly adopt EMS technology due to similar products advertised on late-night infomercials promising to shed belly fat without leaving the couch. Just as vitamins are intended to supplement a good diet, muscle stimulators are intended to complement serious training, not replace it.
