Laser manufacturer Cynosure, a division of Hologic, has launched StimSure, a non-invasive electromagnetic technology to build and tone muscle in the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, in Europe and the Middle East.
The company explains that it can be used to strengthen and tighten the abdominal, gluteal and thigh muscles by contracting and stimulating them, delivering up to 24,000 muscle contractions in 20 to 30 minutes.
The StimSure applicators generate an electromagnetic field that stimulate the motor neuron cells of the body’s muscles, causing the muscle to contract as it would during movement or exercise.
A prolonged contraction, made by a series of individual twitch contractions back to back, creates a maximal tetanic contraction that results in more efficient growth of muscle fibres, according to Cynosure.
The company further explains that StimSure uses 1.0 Tesla per applicator and
