PowerDot Duo 2.0 – the Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) device that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The Duo version allows you to stimulate two muscle groups at once and independent of each other. A targeted activation of the muscles promises improved training and recovery and may help relieve tension in your muscles. In order to make the stimulation of a muscle group with electrode pads more workable, PowerDot uses the technology of modern EMS systems and packs it into a compact and user-friendly pod with built-in battery, which connects to the intuitive, mobile PowerDot app for easy control. This can be done so easily.
The Duo offers unrestricted mobility during training and helps increase the effect on your muscles. For instance, in the push phase of your thigh or the pull phase of your calf muscles during intensive training sessions on your roller trainer. The NMES technology (neuromuscular electrical stimulation) can be used for each sport. Electrical impulses create muscle contractions and relieve muscles. Besides, EMS increases blood circulation, supports recovery and provides relief.
What are the benefits of NMES?
• Faster recovery after training and competitions
• Help prevent injury
• Reduce muscle soreness
• Increase Blood Circulation
• Increase muscle strength
• Increase muscle endurance
• Warm up muscles to prevent injury
• Improve your overall well-being
The PowerDot app guides you through every function to help you improve performance, speed up muscle recovery and massage away tension from stress. You can choose between 10 different programs and manual settings for training and recovery with individual stimulation intensity, duration, shapes and sequences:
For increased performance
• Endurance: Increase duration of training and intensity
• Muscle Endurance: Support the muscles during intensive strength training sessions
• Strength: Increase general muscle strength
• Stabilization: For muscular coordination of complex motion sequences, for speed and speed strength
• Speed strength: Train the stretch reflex of muscles and tendons
For effective recovery.
• Active Recovery: Speed up muscle recovery and activate muscles after exhausting workouts
• Light Recovery: Low-frequency, non-fatiguing stimulation to help your muscles recover faster
• Extended Recovery: With a longer muscle simulation period for active recovery, to prevent muscle fatigue, as a pain programme or for relaxation
Massage: Increase blood flow and circulation to decrease soreness, stiffness and everyday aches.
• Warm Up: Jump-start your workouts and help minimize injuries with a warm up that prepares your muscles to do more.
After having selected the programme, the menu supports you with clear instructions e.g. on where to position the pod or with safety instructions. It offers therapy recommendations, a progress control and individual manual settings.
PowerDot Smart TENS:
What’s more, PowerDot has now extended the features of its app for iOS and Android by a sophisticated TENS programme for pain relief.
The Smart TENS feature by PowerDot is different from many other TENS devices in that it creates matching programmes for pain relief for your individual pain type and level. Within the app, you can select the area of pain (elbow, calf, knee, back etc), confirm the type of pain (chronic, acute, injury related etc.) and set the level of pain on a scale from 1-10. The system takes this information to create a specialized TENS programme, which you can use right away. After finishing the programme, generally after 30 minutes, the app asks you again about the your pain score on the same scale.
The recorded data is saved in the app and visualized in a therapy statistic. Easy to read graphs show your progress over time allowing you to monitor your pain score. The created programme can be modified anytime with slider bars to adapt the intensity and duration to your personal requirements, if it gets too uncomfortable. When manually modifying the parameters, bargraphs on comfort and effectiveness help you understand the effect that changes have on your therapy. Lowering the level of stimulation too much will lead to reduced effectiveness – which is shown clearly.
• Manual settings:
Manual settings allow you to individually modify one of the training programmes according to your own requirements. This unique function allows you to take control of the contraction length (3-7 seconds) and frequency (100-120 Hz), rest time (26-50 seconds) and frequency (0-4 Hz), ramp up/down (0.5-4 seconds), pulse length (160 – 416 µs/micro seconds), and number of contractions (15-35).
