Electrical Muscle Stimulation: Manduu’s Gym of the Future Is Here

There is a fitness revolution beginning in America that is quite amazing. For the first time, advanced technology has been adapted to provide a direct workout to the human body. When we think of technology and fitness, wearable devices immediately come to mind. These devices, however, are passive and depend upon us to move or run or cycle so that data can be gathered and analyzed. Bottom line: a wearable cannot deliver a workout.
