TeslaFormer FMS vs. EMS technology

Teslaformer Vs Emsculpt technology – which one is the best option to improve muscle definition.

The year is 2020, and while we’re not time travelling or able to buy a flying car quite yet, exercise science has at least advanced enough that squats and crunches are almost a thing of the past.

It seems that everyone from Kim Kardashian to Simon Cowell are turning to Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) to build their abs and glutes without stepping foot in a gym. If you haven’t heard of this magical development by now, you’re welcome!

So, how does TeslaFormer Muscle Definer work?

Essentially, paddles are placed on an area of the body that you want to tone and define. These paddles emit magnetic energy which triggers strong, supramaximal muscle contractions. These contractions far exceed what we are able to achieve via a workout, and because the energy is delivered directly to the muscle, the brain and sensory nerves are bypassed. This means it’s painless and requires no effort! In 4-10, 30 minute sessions you can build a six pack, or give yourself a butt lift. Sounds too good to be true right?

Clinical studies

In clinical trials, FMS stimulation has been shown to:

TeslaFormer vs. Emsculpt technology review

There are two technologies which are currently approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia; Tesla Former and Emsculpt, and while they are comparable in terms of price, and the mechanism with which they work, there are some key differences. 

While both TeslaFormer and its alternatives are both FMS machines, the amount of energy they deliver, which translates to the amount of contractions produced in a session, is very different. This means that the results that the machines are capable of producing is also quite variable.

Electro Magnetic devices were developed with aesthetics in mind, whereas Tesla Former is a medical grade technology that has far greater functional benefit; it is something that is used by physiotherapists across Europe to treat anything from lower back pain, improving posture, to frozen shoulders, to urinary incontinence. All of these technologies can help you build a six pack, but Tesla Former will do it faster simply because it delivers more energy to the muscle, and produces more contractions. 

The Tesla Former produces 50,000 contractions per 30 minute session, and 3 Tesla in energy, whereas similar technologies deliver only 20,000, and 2 Tesla in energy.

FMS lifts and firms the treated area, targeting muscle groups that are not accessible via a normal workout. Results are visible 4 weeks following the last session, and continue to improve for up 8 weeks following your treatments. Those with an active lifestyle or an athletic background will see results sooner due to muscle memory.

This treatment is suitable for anyone wanting to burn fat, or increase muscle tone and quality. The Muscle Definer treatment can be used on most areas of the body (e.g. abdomen, glutes, arms) where you are wanting to build muscle and reduce fat, it is also an effective treatment for post-pregnancy abdominal separation (Diastasis Recti), even years after giving birth. 

The TeslaFormer is a little more versatile than its alternatives in terms of the areas that it can be used on, and is a highly effective solution for incontinence and pelvic floor strengthening. The benefits of FMS are well established by science, but the TeslaFormer really has the edge over other technologies simply due to operating at a higher energy.

This makes the TeslaFormer the more pragmatic choice in terms of cost and efficacy.
