What is electrical muscle stimulation?
Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is the stimulation of muscles using electric impulses that cause muscle contraction. It has several uses that have brought the technology increased attention, including rehabilitation, strength training, and testing.
What is our innovation?
Usually, when applied to specific muscle groups, EMS is not used in the most effective way. Standard "abs trainers" send electrical impulses at a steady rate irrespective of our breathing cycle, which leads to dysfunctional or non-functional training of the abdominal muscles. This is due to the muscles needed for exhalation being trained during inhalation too, and vice versa, leading to inefficient breathing as deep abdominal inhalation cannot occur. During exhalation, the abdominal muscles contract, with the diaphragm relaxing and moving upwards into the chest wall, resulting in the lungs expelling air. Relaxed abdominal muscles during inhalation allow the diaphragm to contract and move down towards the abdominal area, allowing the lungs to expand in the chest cavity, which they cannot do well if the abdomen is contracting constantly or during inhalation. The constantly used, overactive abdominal muscles not only prohibit deep inhalation, but this also causes fast and shallow breathing and possibly ailments such as back problems.
Reprogramming neurons for more functional working of respiratory and locomotory system
The Breathing Labs Abs Trainer’s solution is the use of neuromodulation of the abdominal muscles, the "reprogramming" of those muscles to be synchronized with one's breathing. The muscle groups are trained to be activated only during the breathing phases of their use, that is, during exhalation while remaining relaxed during inhalation. Training the abdominal muscles so that they are only used during the breathing phase that they are actively used in allows greater contractile strength, which leads to more efficient breathing as deeper abdominal inhalation is made easier with a longer exhalation and stronger or better ab toning. Additionally, EMS devices can be known to cause discomfort from strong stimulation; however, the Breathing Labs Abs Trainer ceases stimulation as soon as the user is unable to blow.

"Keep using the pursed-lip breathing until the breathless feeling goes away. Rest In between breaths if you feel Dizzy. Give sips of room temperature water."
American Lung Association
“Pursed-lip breathing attempts to prolong active expiration through half-opened lips, thus helping to prevent airway collapse. Compared with spontaneous breathing, pursed-lip breathing reduces respiratory rate, dyspnea, and PaCO2, while improving tidal volume and oxygen saturation in resting conditions."
American Thoracic Society
"Pursed lip breathing is one of the simplest ways to control shortness of breath. It provides a quick and easy way to slow your pace of breathing, making each breath more effective."
“Inhaling through the nose and exhaling through pursed lips makes breathing easier. Pursed-lip breathing can also help you regain control if you’re having trouble catching your breath. You can practice breathing this way anytime, anywhere. If you’re watching TV, practice during the commercials. Try to practice several times a day. Over time, pursed-lip breathing will feel natural.”
University of Minnesota Medical Center
“Pursed lip breathing helps you use less energy to breathe. It can help you relax. When you are short of breath, it helps you slow the pace of your breathing and can help you feel less short of breath."
University of Iowa Children's Hospital
