The Technology: Used by world-class athletes like Muhammad Ali, Olympic players and the like, is now available for use readily, from the comfort of our futon, any time, any where! Lightweight and wireless, you can use it while cooking, washing dishes, doing the laundry, or while working out for a more effective workout sesh! Slendertone uses Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology to emit signals directly from the belt to your abdominal muscles, causing them to contract, work and relax in a similar way.
EMS works as a rehabilitation tool as a medical support kit for partially or totally immobilised patients, and as a strength and training tool for a perfectly healthy people, and as a post exercise recovery tool for athletes, causing it to gain even more momentum in the last few years. The device generates impulses that are then delivered to the skin, near the muscles being stimulated via electrodes. The impulses work effectively because of simply put, a phenomenon that mimics the body’s potential action that comes from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. EMS is so effective a tool, that it is cited by sports physicians as an effective complementary technique for sports training. In USA, EMS has become one of the many devices regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)!
How does Slendertone work?
The core is literally the most important part of your body, and the most ignored. During everyday activities like sitting at your desk, walking and carrying groceries, the brain sends signals to the muscles via the nerves, making them contract and relax. Slendertone is clinically proven to do the same via electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) via the app-controlled toning belt, a state-of-the-art technology that is aided by years of research and development. It uses EMS to directly emit signals from the belt to the abdominal muscles, making them contract, relax and work in a similar fashion.

Place your gel pads on the connect belt with the pattern side down. Each belt is equipped with markings to allow the gel pads to align the gel pad correctly with your oblique muscles. Ensure that the metal studs are fully covered.

Press the gel pads firmly on your skin and tighten the belt. Power up your controller by pressing and holding the power button until you hear the startup tone.
