Introducing Powerdot, Paving The Way In Smart Muscle Stimulation
(7 months ago)
CARLSBAD, Calif: Electrical muscle stimulation roots back to the 1970s, when it gained popularity due to high profile fans such as Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali touting its transformative benefits.
Also known as EMS or e-stim, electrical muscle stimulation is an effective performance and recovery method that uses electrical impulses to cause a contraction in targeted muscles. When the impulse is applied to a motor nerve, it causes a deeper and more complete muscle contraction than what can be achieved through alternative training or activity, such as stretching. These deeper contractions allow the muscle to become stronger, recover faster and overall, feel better.
E-stim benefits range from increased performance and injury prevention to recovery, muscle balance and overall strength. The method pushes oxygenated blood deeper into the muscle tissue, faster, which accelerates cell recovery. Because the contractions increase blood flow, it prepares the muscle more thoroughly for exercise. Additionally, when in the same position for an extended period of time, muscles begin to shorten which can often lead to injury; e-stim counteracts this process by generating blood flow to the targeted muscle groups.
Historically, e-stim has solely been accessed via large, expensive machines, with the administration process taking several hours. With the introduction of Powerdot, a powerful training and recovery tool that puts the therapeutic benefits of e-stim at your fingertips, the EMS industry will forever be changed. Powerdot is the world's first mobile and wearable smart muscle stimulation device, making e-stim accessible to the everyday fit consumer. Because Powerdot is wireless, compact and featherweight, it can be worn seamlessly during any training or recovery pursuit.
"As more people depend on smart phones for convenient health and wellness support, we saw an opportunity to enter the market by bringing a previously inaccessible, yet highly effective, performance technology to consumers' fingertips," said Eric Glader, co-founder of Powerdot. "Through the launch of Powerdot, we hope to educate the public about the unparalleled benefits of e-stim, and elevate physical activity across the board."
Anyone seeking increased performance, faster recovery and enhanced overall comfort and health can now do so with a Powerdot unit. A convenient and easy-to-use system, Powerdot links to Apple or Android smartphones with a dedicated app, allowing users to control their physical activity on the go. The user simply connects to their Bluetooth, opens the Powerdot app and has the ability to choose between ten pre-set programs, including active recovery, strength, endurance, massage and more. Programs range from 5-46 minutes and can be done pre, post or during a workout, on rest days or while traveling -- to prevent muscle tightening or soreness.
Powerdot is now available with one pod (Uno) for $249.00 or with two pods (Duo) for $449.00.
