Limelight WellnessAmplitrain in Vancouver
What is Amplitrain?
Amplitrain is a state-of-the-art device for fitness. It’s a time saving, safe and vigorously effective for body workout. This is an Electrical Muscle Activation (EMA) equipment which uses sophisticated terminal, and high-tech electrodes embedded in the suit, and a smart app. With Amplitrain, electrical stimulation goes through all muscle fibers to improve strength and endurance. Electric impulses in the modulated mid- frequency range of 2000 Hz ensure that the workout is done effectively and efficiently.

What is TENS?
TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation meaning that electrical impulses across theskin for therapeutic purposes. The goal of using TENS machine is to reduce pain by using Gate Control Theory at the level of spinal cord. The TENS machine generates electrical currents of a specific frequency which selectively stimulate non-painful A Beta nerves. These currents also appear to help release endorphin (naturally occurring morphine-like substances) in the body to future help reduce pain.
What is EMS?
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) device sends electrical impulses to create involuntary muscle contraction. This device stimulates the nerves by electrical impulses. Those impulses can go through muscles to develop muscle contraction. With EMS machine it’s mandatory for clients to do specific exercises to gain their own goals.
What is EMA?
EMA is Electrical Muscle Activation. Amplitrain is a device that offers EMA. With Amplitrain, electrical stimulation goes through all muscle fibers to improve strength and endurance in muscles. This innovative, and highly effective high-tech workout goes straight to stimulate muscles without stimulating nerves to carry impulses to the muscles, so we don’t bother nerves with this device. By maximally contracting a muscle, at best, only %30 of all muscle fibers are in a state of contraction. With Amplitrain we work on all muscle fibers by using electrical impulses in the modulated mid-frequency range of 2000 Hz. Clients don’t need to have exercise. However, doing some activities during working with Amplitrain can make achievement of client’s goal easier and faster.
What are the advantages of EMA?
– Volume effect – all tissues are detected
– Tissue activation – metabolism of the cells is activated
– Depth effect – the signal purity remains intact even in lower layers
– So-called physiological muscle action – activation of the muscle cells without involving nerves stimulation.
To recap, EMA is an upgraded EMS machine. So, we could adjust it to be an EMS machine or even having TENS effects as well. With EMA there is no mandatory to do any other exercises, so we can use this innovative highly effective high-tech workout for all ages, especially for seniors and injured people.
