There is an increasingly popular fitness trend sweeping the nation and quickly being adopted across the globe: electrical muscle stimulation for workouts or fitness recovery. Interestingly, EMS technology has been around for decades. Many doctors and physical therapists have used electric muscle stimulation treatments to help top athletes or patients in recovery. But up until now, EMS equipment has been bulky, expensive, and difficult to harness the power of electrical muscle stimulation at home.
Now that EMS workouts are gaining in popularity, the fitness industry is gearing up to fill the demand for portable EMS devices. What’s exciting is that PowerDot is the only lightweight, portable EMS device designed for regular use at home or at the gym. PowerDot is all science and technology. Our electric muscle stimulator is completely wireless and pairs with our elegant mobile app for pre-set fitness training programs in the palm of your hand. PowerDot is also FDA cleared, clinically proven and backed by scientific research.
Who’s Using EMS Technology?
Top level athletes have been using EMS for years; but as of late celebrities, CEOs, and fitness enthusiasts are all over this fitness trend, and it’s easy to see why. Electrical muscle stimulation does more than double duty, using electrodes to contract muscles, sending electrical pulses throughout the desired muscle or muscle groups every two to three seconds. These electrical pulses engage slow- and fast twitch muscle fibers at a rate not possible during traditional workouts. For example, one crunch, one lunge or one dumbbell curl each contracts one muscle at a time, while electrical muscle stimulation promotes hundreds of muscle contractions per second.
Though it might seem strange, there is actually a downside to booking EMS based sessions with high profile fitness trainers who cater to the stars. Some of the most renowned personal trainers work with zip-up vests or full body suits with electrical wires springing from every which way, not so unlike the bulky equipment used in doctors’ offices.
PowerDot is the complete opposite. Our electric muscle stimulator is wireless and designed to be portable, easy-to-use and discreet. You can workout alone or with a trainer, and still achieve the same results as top athletes and major celebrities. Besides these obvious benefits is the cost. At under $300 with the UNO or for payments as low as $22 a month, PowerDot make so much sense. Not only that but with PowerDot’s portability it creates a whole new outlet for trainer prescribed home workouts or post session recovery.

And with PowerDot, you don’t have to be a top athlete or celebrity to leverage EMS for incredible post-workout results.

How Do I Get Started with EMS?
You can use PowerDot EMS to help you warm up and prepare muscles for maximum output, or cool down to support recovery in between workouts. But where EMS technology truly outperforms any other popular workout, workout regimen or fitness recovery tool is during your actual workout. Studies show that you can achieve strength gains up to 30% after 10-15 treatments in a period of 3 weeks. (person and training age specific. Studies from Kotts of the USSR) These strength gains aren’t necessarily from an increase in muscle mass but rather CNS related training.

Once you’re all set, you can immediately select the fitness training programs suitable to your needs. They are broken down into two categories: Everyday Programs and Performance Programs. This is the best place to review your options, no matter how you plan to incorporate electrical muscle stimulation into your workout routine.
Electric muscle stimulation technology is one of the the hottest trends in fitness and health, but it’s certainly not going away anytime soon. If anything, here at PowerDot, we’re excited to be part of the increasing popularity and rapid growth of portable EMS devices and EMS workouts.
