Compex Motor Point Pen
The Compex Motor Point Pen supports in locating the optimal electrode position for your Electric Muscle Stimulation session.
The positioning of the electrodes is one of the determining factors in ensuring a comfortable and more efficient Electric Muscle Stimulation session - specially for programs inducing muscular contractions (eg: resistance, strength, explosive strength, hypertrophy, rehabilitation, etc). Programs inducing muscular twitches (eg: recovery, warm-up, and muscular pain management programs) do not requried the location of the motor point of your muscle.
It is therefore essential to devote special care to this aspect.
The correct placement of electrodes and the use of significant energy (intensity) allow for a greater recruitment of muscle fibres. The higher the intensity level reached, the greater the spatial recruitment of your muscle fibres, that is to say the number of muscle fibres working, and therefore the greater the number of muscle fibres that make progress.
What is the Motor Point of Your Muscle?
The motor point is a point where the motor nerve enters the muscle, which is an extremely localised area where the motor nerve is at its most excitable state. Although the location of the various motor points is now well knwon, there may nevertheless be variations of up to several centimetres between different individuals.
The Compex Motor Point Pen allows determining with greater accuracy the exact location of the motor point for each individual, and thus ensuring the greatest effectiveness of your Compex Electric Muscle Stimulation session.
