MTG has designed a product that features a newly developed,
proprietary waveform combined with the optimum 20Hz frequency that has been formulated
from the world's most advanced EMS theory.
Merging this with the training theory of one of the
world's greatest football players’, Cristiano Ronaldo to become the SIXPAD “CMM Pulse” core technology.
This “CMM Pulse” technology constitutes a revolutionary development in EMS training equipment.

20Hz PROVEN EMS DATA EMS for optimised training has derived from sports science research.  

The effects on training have been verified to have an
optimum EMS frequency of 20Hz

Unique Waveform Development Story
[ To resolve traditional EMS issues ]

What is EMS? ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION

A technology that makes you exercise by sending direct signals to the muscles using electrostimulation.

Generally, muscles act in response to signals from the brain. EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is a technology that uses electrical signals to directly stimulate and exercise muscles.

Merits of EMS

The change in appearance can easily be seen because an approach for a fast muscle development can be achieved.

A muscle is made up of very thin muscle fibers that can be grouped into either fast or slow twitch muscles. Training at this intensity will tire muscle, which in turn inhibits it from keeping up with the stimulation, resulting in the training becoming inefficient. Based on world class sports science research, it was concluded that the “effective frequency for training is 20Hz”. Though, whilst exercising at 20Hz, there is a peculiar tingling sensation. That problem could not be cleared easily, making the product development of EMS training at 20Hz challenging. However, With standard training practices, stimulation of these muscles can only be achieved through high intensity exercise. Using EMS though, you can train the fast-twitch muscles with minimum intensity, increasing the possibilities for changes in appearance.

Since a fast-twitch muscle can be more easily developed if it is trained, it is more likely to lead to a more toned body.

Traditional EMS issue

If the frequency is too high, the training will have no effect.

A major challenge with traditional EMS to date, is that it works with a very high frequency. Having high frequency means that the electrical stimulation is more intensive. For example, with 60Hz, the electrical stimulation will be sent 60 times in 1 second. Training at this intensity will tire the muscle which in turn makes it not able to keep up with the stimulation, resulting in the the training becoming worthless. Based on world class exercise science research it was concluded that the “effective frequency for training is 20Hz”. Whilst exercising at 20Hz though, there is a peculiar tingling sensation. That technical problem could not be cleared making product development for 20Hz EMS training challenging.

Traditional Issues Image

A unique waveform was developed to eliminate the peculiar tingling sensations.

With the technological development capability of MTG, the development of the unique waveform which eliminates the peculiar tingling pain from the low frequency while using 20Hz was successful.

Due to this, it was made possible to overcome the traditional EMS issue of having no training effect due to a very high frequency.
