First scientific study at the institute for sports science at the University of Bayreuth (BOECKH-BEHRENS, W.-U./SCHÄFFER, G., 2002)
Aim of the study:
The aim of the study was to determine the effects of EMS training on urinary incontinence.
The BodyTransformer is an all-round training device which trains a large part of the muscles effectively. At the same time, therapeutic goals such as alleviating incontinence and back pain (see the study for reducing back pain with EMS training, BOECKH-BEHRENS, W.-U. / GRÜTZMACHER, N. / SEBELEFSKY, J., 2002) and preventative goals such as muscle building, body shaping, improvement in mood, vitality, body stability, and general performance can be reached. In this study, more than half of the patients suffering from incontinence achieved either complete freedom or a significant improvement of symptoms.
