EMS kit allows you to exercise your muscles through the mouse
Leave it to the Japanese to come up with something ingenious and quirky.This time around, they have devised a contraption that allows you to exercise your stagnant muscles while working those sedentary desk jobs. And, the odd (and great) part is – you can control these muscle activities and exercises via your computer mouse. The unique working scope is actually based on the scientific application of EMS or Electrical Muscle Stimulation. This EMS kit encompasses two small pads with wires that can be connected to the mouse. You can fix these pads to your bicep muscles (or even abs) after applying the region with a special gel. Then you can proceed onto work on your computer, while the small doses of imperceptible electric charges conveying through the mouse gleefully stimulate your muscles…simple as that!
Now, with all these novel considerations, the EMS kit can’t obviously be connected to a regular mouse peripheral. In that regard, the set comes with its own special mouse that presumably has an external jack on its body for the EMS wire to go in. This entire set-up is powered by two AAA batteries, and runs for a continuous 15 minute session; after which the system automatically turns off.
As for the usability factor, the EMS kit boasts of 6 different modes of electric stimulation that have varying degrees of effect on the muscle exercise. The cable also has a length of 148 cm, which is enough to reach different parts of the body, including neck, arms, chest, abdomen, waist and even legs.
Price – 5,980 yen (around $59) for the entire kit, including the wireless mouse.
