Phase 5 incorporates the use of two electrical stimulation devices to help facilitate muscle recovery. These are not TENS units that are used primarily for pain. Instead, these Compex and Marc Pro units stimulate muscle contractions, whereas TENS units stimulate pain nerve receptors.
The Marc Pro is an electronic device that stimulates muscles to improve or facilitate muscle recovery. Marc stands for Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade. It is an innovative technology designed to create unique and robust yet completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events.
The Compex USA units send electric pulses to your nerve fibers to facilitate a series of involuntary, non-fatiguing muscle contractions. Are you rehabbing or recovering from an injury? Try stimulating muscle fibers such as Type I (endurance) or Type II (power & explosiveness) to introduce muscle responsiveness and strength.
Benefits of Electrical Stimulation
Increased blood flow to the muscle or injured area to shorten recovery
Assists with the removal of lactic acid
Relaxation of fatigued muscles through gentle massage-like contractions
Compex Electrical Stimulation
Marc-Pro Electrical Stimulation
