Our diPulse Range
DiPulse products take a completely innovative approach to electrotherapy, making optimum use of the science behind NMES to offer a complete range of products that can satisfy every need. The diPulse compression tops and tights are made from smart textiles and have integrated electrical stimulation points that accurately target the right areas so you can get the most out of training, workouts or recovery sessions without worrying about pesky cables and stubborn electrodes.
What is NMES?
NMES is the magic behind diPulse, it aims to transform your workouts and training into a professional and optimised experience. The abbreviation stands for Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation which is the delivery of an electrical current via the motor points of a muscle to stimulate muscle activation to create a muscle contraction. NMES essentially involves bypassing the brain in order to create a muscle contraction via the motor nerve without the need for conscious thought.
Why should I buy diPulse over similar electrotherapy products?
DiPulse is unique in that it makes optimum use of NMES and offers the first fully integrated premium wearable fitness platform of its kind, cleverly controlled by an app designed to elevate your workouts and provide you with optimum results in less time. Therefore, diPulse is sure to meet your workout and training needs. The app is completely user friendly and maximises your performance with specially designed programs that are built to help you get the most out of any session. Research shows that even people who are highly mobile, sporty, and fit aren’t really making the most of their muscles. With NMES programs, we can recruit more muscle fibres using electrical stimulation coupled with a workout, than with a workout alone. That practically means we can train, better, harder, and get the maximum results while still erring on the side of caution.
What can I use diPulse for?
You can diPulse products for boosting your performance during any type of physical activity so they can be tailored to meet your needs. Their products can also be used for electrotherapy recovery sessions that target all the right muscles ensuring your muscles are back to normal as soon as possible and the compression of the products creates even more pain relief.
Can I build muscle with NMES?
With the ability to contract a muscle for a more sustained period during a stimulation cycle, NMES can build overall performance. By gradually increasing the intensity of the stimulation, as part of your training programme, more muscle fibres can be recruited during each muscle contraction which can lead to improved muscle development.
Can I damage my muscle fibres?
diPulse programmes are designed to provide warm-up, training and cool-down phases which support muscle integrity. It is important to gradually build up your training tolerance and stimulation intensity to ensure your body adapts healthily to the exercises you are performing. Overtraining or too high intensities may lead to Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOM's).
Is it normal to experience twitching during the rest phases within the programs?
Yes this is perfectly normal - it allows muscle relaxation between the workout phases to enhance the effect of training
Are there any contraindications to using NMES?
Our diPulse User Manual outlines a list of contraindications to NMES. If you are in any doubt: Please consult your doctor before using the device.
I have very dry skin, is that a problem when using the diPulse system?
Dry skin could create an insulating effect to the current. Always ensure good contact between the carbon electrode and the skin. Fill the conductive mist bottle with water, spray the carbon electrode and the skin area it contacts to ensure optimal conductivity.
Why do I have to use the water mist spray?
Water creates an important contact between the carbon electrode and the skin. Inadequate conductivity due to poor contact reduces the stimulation efficiency.
Can anyone use the programs?
The diPulse programs have been designed to suit all aspects of physical training - from sport and fitness to massage and wellbeing, thereby ensuring its suitability for all adult age groups. Users under the age of 18 should do so under adult supervision
How do I wash the SMARTSUIT and can it be washed with other items?
Please find washing instructions on a label inside the SMARTSUIT. The SMARTSUIT may be washed with other items.
