SINGAPORE — Are you a fitness enthusiasts looking to boost your exercise regime? How about sending electrical pulses to your muscles?
A Singapore-based company, Smartmissimo Technologies, has developed a product called PowerDot (picture), which claims to be the world’s first mobile muscle stimulator connected to a smart device.
It works by sending electrical impulses to your muscles via a pair of sticky electrode pads attached to parts of your body, mimicking the nerve impulses that your brain sends to your muscles to prepare for or sustain a workout. According to the company, the result is a noticeable difference in stamina, endurance, strength, and recovery from exercise.
This technology is not new, and has been scientifically proven to enhance sports performance. For example, professional football athletes in Europe use electrical muscle stimulation to fast-track their recovery from massive injuries or fatigue, although in such cases, bulky or stationary machinery is used.
