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.

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.
