EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) uses small electrical impulses to stimulate your muscles in a process know as passive exercise. This stimulation is similar to the nerve pulses which cause muscles to contract and relax during active exercise. The main difference is that you dont have to think about it. The resulting EMS muscle contractions cause toning, strengthening and combat flabbiness.
The Rio 60 Second Neck Toner has three exercise programmes. Best results are achieved by varying the programme used. We recommend using Programme 1 on one day, followed by Programme 2 on the second day, followed by Programme 3 on the third day, and so on.
Firming Programme: Rhythmic muscle contractions to condition muscles with a short interval between each pulse. The muscle contraction lasts for 2 seconds followed by a 3 second pause.
Extended Firming Programme: This offers an extended muscle contraction with pre-programmed varying intensity to maximise the work-out. The extended contraction lasts for 9 seconds followed by a 4 second pause.
Tap Toning Programme: Rapid stimulation to simulate deep massaging action. The pulsing massage action lasts for 5 seconds followed by a 3 second pause.
To begin with the pulses give a mild tingling sensation and as the intensity is increased you will start to notice muscle contractions. NOTE: Power can only be increased during the contraction time. The muscle contractions are smooth and each contraction will start with a slow rise, hold itself in a contracted position for a few seconds and then gently relax.
