COMPEX Muscle Stimulation

Compex muscle stimulation is a high intensity muscle contraction devise used in rehabilitation to reduce muscle loss and improve muscle activation. It can also be used to generate improved gains in strength training and for muscle hypertrophy (bulk).

The principle of electrostimulation reproduces the process involved in a voluntary contraction. The stimulator sends an electrical impulse to nerve fibres to excite them. This excitation is then transmitted to muscle fibres and results in a mechanical response ( a twitch). This is the basic requirement for muscular contraction.

Compex cycles run for 30 minutes.

  • The fee is is $10 per session.
  • Rental for a week is $50 (deposit required)
