Electrical muscle stimulators are used for a variety of purposes in physical therapy. The main aim of muscle stimulators is to improve blood circulation, improve muscle control, toning of the muscles and increase in the muscle strength. This is achieved by imparting electrical current to the body, making the muscles contract. An electronic device is used to send electric current to a specific area in the body through a series of electrodes that are usually adhesive pads. Due to the current, the muscles contract and this helps in the toning of muscles, just like the way it works when the body is exercised.
Different types of muscle stimulation methods are available in the market. These include Russian Current, Interferential Current (IFC), Premodulated Current (Premod), High Voltage current, Microcurrent and Biphasic current. These different type of muscle stimulation methods are mainly used for pain management, improving the strength of muscles and improvement of motor control, improving the mobility of joints, tissue repair, and for improving blood circulation among other functions. With the advent of new technologies, increased health awareness, expansion in healthcare budgets, advances in sports medicine and a rise in geriatric population, the muscle simulator market is all set to expand during the coming decade.
Muscle Stimulator Market: Drivers
