Lack of exercise due to aging, unfamiliarity with exercise, orthopedic disease, and diseases, such as respiratory/cardiovascular disorders, may cause muscle atrophy from disuse. Exercise-deficient people cannot exercise, which can lead to decreasing muscle strength, progress of the primary disease to cause pain, and distress in exercise, as well as a decrease in the will to exercise. This further reduces the exercise quantity to repeat the negative cycle.
Exercise is more often required in such people who cannot exercise/do not exercise because of the risks of being bedridden or requiring nursing care without exercise.
Causing muscle tetanus at 20 Hz to cause strong muscle contraction and perform exercise for strength training in voluntary movement
Repeatedly twitching at 4 Hz for aerobic exercise in voluntary movement
Belt electrodes move the muscles of the lower extremities as a substitute for voluntary movement
The larger electrode areas and skin contact areas scatter potential density to cause no pain from the electrodes. Strong muscle contraction can also be performed without pain.
Motor points: Points with dense neuromuscular junctions to which current is applied to move the muscle
The large electrodes enable anyone to perform the same therapy regardless of motor points with high treatment reproducibility.
