MST Historical Studies

In 1791, Luigi Galvani was the first to prove that current can activate scientific evidence of muscle. In the 19th and 20th centuries, researchers continued to study and document the exact electrical properties of muscle movement. 


In the 1960s, Soviet sports scientists applied electrical muscle stimulation to train elite athletes, claiming a 40% gain. In the 1970s, these studies were shared at conferences with Western sports organizations. 

Further medical physiology studies have clarified the mechanisms by which electrical stimulation causes muscle, blood vessel and nerve cell adaptation. The earliest widely used muscle stimulation technology was a physical therapist for injury rehabilitation and prevention. As the effectiveness and benefits of MST are widely studied and recognized, MST is increasingly used as a strength training tool for athletes and as a fitness tool for health-conscious people. 

The 18th Congress of the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology focuses on MST training and athletic performance. Many scientific studies have carried out general and specific physical and health enhancements about their effectiveness.
