Compex Electrical Muscle Stimulation can be used for Strength, Conditioning, Promoting muscle recruitment, and Recovery from sport. It has been shown to: ▪ Increased Muscle Strength and Density & Improved (VO2) Max: recruits more muscle fibers to maximize your muscular effort, engages a greater percentage of muscle fibers-both Type 1 slow twitch muscle (endurance) and Type 2 fast twitch muscle (power and explosiveness), creates more muscular efficiency with enhanced results. Faster Muscle Recovery: helps to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and facilitates the flushing of toxins and byproducts to promote faster muscle recovery.
