Developed by Singapore company Smartmissimo Technologies, PowerDot uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), mimicking nerve impulses to engage muscles during a workout. The Bluetooth-ready wearable can be controlled from a smartphone, and promises to painlessly enhance stamina, endurance and muscle tone even during office hours.
Priced at S$239, the PowerDot can be used to repair and prepare the body for intensity workouts, say its designers. Alex Pisarev, founder of PowerDot says: “Muscle stimulators have been around for a while now but PowerDot is a huge game changer as it provides accessiblity and ease of use by tapping into the everyday resource of a smartphone.
"PowerDot isn’t a one-fit-all muscle stimulator but it offers training programmes that deliver custom power-packed workout routines to athletes and sports enthusiasts of any level. Whether it’s a speedy recovery for sprinters or resistance building for gymnists, athletes in various sports can take advantage of PowerDot to boost their sports performance and improve results.”
