Electric Muscle Stimulation Pros and Cons

Pros

The Contour Ab Belt is one of a few abdominal toning devices that use electrical pulses to tone the muscles of the abdomen. Known variously as Electric Muscle Stimulation or EMS, this technology is receiving more and more attention, which is not surprising given that the method has been utilized in rehabilitative medicine for decades. The EMS technology offered by the Contour Ab Belt has actually been cleared by the FDA, even though it technically does not require such clearance before hitting the market. Furthermore, the Contour Belt is versatile enough that it can be used on areas of the body other than the abdomen. It also comes with a diet and exercise guide and is supported by a two year warranty program.

Cons

While there are some clear advantages to the Contour Ab Belt there are also some distinct disadvantages. For one thing, the device appears to be too bulky to be worn discreetly, especially given the size of its remote controller. Thus, users might need to forget about undergoing a toning program while at work or in public. It also requires 4 AAA batteries, unlike some other belts. Plus, the device is not specifically backed by any third party clinical trials, as some other EMS devices are. With a satisfaction guarantee period of only one month, people do not have a very long a time period to make a final decision about the apparatus. Finally, the vendor does not ship outside the U.S and charges customers outside of the continental U.S. extra shipping costs.
