  • 88% of people tested reduced their back pain.
  • Over 30% of those reported their recurring back problems had disappeared.
  • 75% showed improvement with incontinence problems, while 33% of those were cured of incontinence altogether.
  • Overall maximum strength ability increased by 12% while endurance/fitness levels improved by 69%.
  • On average, 85% of people tested felt an improvement of their body shape and 90% ranked the EMS training method as positive.
