PowerDot® is more than just your ordinary recovery tool. Built around a smart mobile app the Smart Muscle Stimulator™ connects via Bluetooth™. By connecting to other popular health apps, like Apple Health & Strava, PowerDot learns about your activities throughout the day and in real time. A proprietary algorithm then automatically provides personalized protocols to help you relieve pain, speed up muscle recovery, and improve athletic performance.
Using the scientifically proven technology of EMS the small, yet powerful device stimulates muscle via NMES (NeuroMuscular Electrical Stimulation) protocols and nerve fibers via TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) protocols to force adaptations in the body. Widely used by the top clinicians and athletes in the world, EMS has both therapeutic and performance enhancing benefits. Specifically in relation to pain, TENS works by blocking pain signals from reaching the brain. This means while in use and for up to hours after use localized pain is immediately relieved without the use of pain medications. NMES protocols on the other hand will increase blood circulation helping to reduce inflammation and provide the tissue with the nutrients needed to recover. Additionally, programs have been designed to target both Type I and Type II muscle fibers as a supplement to strength & endurance training. This is vital in both post-surgical rehab settings as well as in helping athletes of all levels reach that next level.
