The Flex Belt
If you have decided that it's time, or perhaps way past time, to get your body in shape or improve your body shape, the Flex Belt should probably be on your list of 'must haves'. This clinically and consumer-tested muscle toning product is rapidly gaining popularity in the U.K. as more and more users testify to its effectiveness.
The Flex Belt is rated by the American FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as a class II medical device, and approved for direct use by consumers, and it is the first such device to be FDA approved. The manufacturers are headquartered in Galway, Ireland and have been making EMS products for medical use for over 40 years; more than 3000 clinics around the world use and prescribe their products.
EMS stands for Electric Muscle Stimulation, and it works by using electrical pulses that instruct the nerves controlling muscle movement to flex and relax the muscles at a rate and intensity controlled in turn by the user. The device includes a belt with medical-grade gel pads and a power supply. Three gel pads are positioned over the major nerve bundles of the abdominal area so that all the connecting muscles are stimulated at the same time.
The Flex Belt can be used with outstanding results by almost anyone, since the muscle stimulation it provides is regulated by the individual user, based on his or her physical condition. Both the physically fit and the physically flabby find they can strengthen and tone abdominal muscles to a degree that would be impossible with equal time spent in conventional workouts. The program calls for use time of 30 minutes a day, and guarantees improvement within four weeks if used as instructed.
It can be worn during almost any normal activity, from watching television or doing housework to walking the dog or running a marathon. It enhances the benefits of physical exercise, but it also works when you're doing nothing at all. This, of course, is the major attraction for a host of people who lack the time or the inclination for regular physical exercise.
In addition to its endorsement by the FDA, this product has received the highest ratings in surveys taken over varying time periods. Almost 100% of consumers surveyed reported significant improvement in the first four weeks of use, and its claim of 100% satisfaction is supported by a 60-day money back guarantee. This seems to be as close as we've gotten so far to a "sure thing".
