How to choose the right Electrostimulator for you, and the 10 best Electrostimulators on the market
Are you thinking of buying some electrostimulation equipment? You probably have doubts about how to choose the right electrostimulator. This short buying guide will allow you to make the best choice, based on your specific needs.
How to choose an electrostimulator, step by step
First of all, decide if you want to have an electrostimulator for personal or professional use.
Will you use your electrostimulator only in a family environment or just for you? Or are you looking for electrostimulation equipment for professional use?
If you are looking for equipment for your personal use and you don’t have great needs because your idea is to use it sporadically, you can choose a more modest model. If, on the other hand, you plan to make frequent and demanding use, you can opt for a professional electrostimulator.
However, under no circumstances should a professional opt for an electrostimulator for home use. You wouldn’t provide your customers with the quality service they need.
Evaluate what use you want to make of your electrostimulator
There are different types of electrostimulators, and not all of them are suitable for the same uses. For example: for fitness use or for training optimization, you will need equipment that is easy to put on, and to use even during exercise.
The design of an electrostimulator can make it more suitable for a certain type of use. Therefore, it is necessary to assess whether it will be used for sports, health, aesthetics, pain treatment… and choose the most appropriate on a case-by-case basis.
Programs and software, professional use or not
The number and type of programs of an electrostimulator is very important. Even without previous knowledge about it in addition to its basic use, the programs will allow you to get the most out of your electrostimulation equipment.
If this is already important in an electrostimulator for personal use, you can get a clear idea of its relevance in professional electrostimulation equipment. The fact of being able to choose the right configuration in each situation or for each specific case without having to do complex calculations, will facilitate the daily work and the efficiency of its use.
An updatable software is the best option in the case of professional electrostimulators. When the parent company implements improvements or new programs, you will find it very convenient to upgrade your equipment. Using good software can solve other problems as well, such as boot speed after power on, or ease of use.
Take into account the number of channels the electrostimulator has
What does it mean? The more channels a device has, the more muscles or muscle groups can work at the same time.
A 2 or 4-way electrostimulator may be sufficient for the treatment of localized pain, but it is clearly insufficient for a fitness use, or for the optimization of a training session. Unless you have all the time in the world to work on some muscles first and then others… which is impossible for anyone to do in one session.
So it is important that before making a decision you are aware of how many channels the electrostimulators you are going to consider have. In this way you can determine which one best suits your current and future needs and preferences.
Power supply of the electrostimulation equipment: another important point to consider
It is also fundamental how the electrostimulator is powered, even in the home. Battery or rechargeable? Each has some advantages and disadvantages that the user needs to evaluate.
For example, keep in mind that – for demanding use – using a powered battery is not a very profitable option, but it is a good option if it is to be used in different areas. For example, if you plan to take your electrostimulator on a trip, it is usually easier to take spare batteries or buy them at your destination, than to find a place to recharge.
Choosing the best electrostimulator for you will be very simple considering these factors. Keep them in mind and you will make an accurate choice. To simplify things a bit, here is a selection of the ten best electrostimulators on the market… we bet that the one you are going to choose will be one of these.
