Endurance

This program is designed to activate the aerobic metabolism muscle fibers during the session. Program helps to establish or improve basic muscle endurance and is designed to increase the average intensity of muscle effort over that must be maintained over a long period of time.

Resistance

Designed to activate the anaerobic metabolism of the muscle, this program helps increase the time a muscle can maintain a higher work level. It is designed for sporting activities, which are characterized by a need for intense efforts to be maintained or repeated to approach the limit of muscle exhaustion.

Strength

Designed to help increase strength by imposing a high and instantaneous power working level on the muscles. It is specifically designed for sports characterized by a need for maximum but very brief strength contractions lasting 5-60s.

Explosive Strength

Helps to increase the speed with which maximum muscle strength can be supplied. Designed to improve performance in activities of very brief duration such as jumping, sprinting and throwing.

Prewarm Up

Produces a muscle twitch. Runs at a low frequency and increases local blood flow, warming the muscle tissue, and increase reaction of the muscles prior to a workout or competition.

Training Recovery / (Active Recovery)

Produces a muscle twitch at a low frequency. Increases local blood flow, leading to a faster reduction of lactic acid than mere rest, promotes muscle relaxation and helps enable a faster recovery.

Competition Recovery / (Recovery PlusĀ®)

Runs at a lower frequency for inducing gentle muscle twitches, increase local blood flow, generate endorphins (the body's natural analgesic) and promotes muscle relaxation when muscles are fatigued after a vigorous workout or competition.

Muscle Relaxation / (Message)

Produces a muscle twitch. Runs at the lowest frequency possible to help relax muscles that are fatigued after a workout or competition.

Potentiation

Recommended before a workout or competition, especially for sports requiring speed and velocity. Applied briefly just before the beginning of a competition, it offers immediate, well potentiated muscle fibers and an optimal level of performance.

Pain Relief (TENS)

The Pain Relief TENS program is used to temporarily alleviate localized pain.
