What are EMS ab toning belts and how do they work?
Electronic Abdominal toning belts are much more than just another piece of exercise equipment. Electronic Muscle Stimulators (EMS), use the same scientifically proven technology that has been widely used to great effect on physical therapy patients for over twenty years. Ab toning belts as we tested here are a variation of the physical therapy equivalents, popular because they are able to stimulate muscle groups as if they were being exercised. They are made with gel pads that fit over your abdominal muscles. The ab toning belt sends a tiny electrical charge through the gel pads to the muscles underneath. These tiny electrical pulses reach all of your abdominal muscles, and cause them to flex and contract as they would if you were doing traditional crunches or situps.
