Arasys allows an Effortless Power Workout. It speeds up muscle building and inch loss at a fraction of the time needed at the gym. Results are equivalent to strenuous exercise. There is no gym burnout since the Arasys procedure does not require glucose (sugar), which is normally utilized during physical exercise. This is an important benefit, because the body burns the surrounding fat cells without decreasing glucose levels.
During regular exercise, the body uses glucose (sugar) as its first source of energy. This causes the glucose (sugar) in the body to drop, sometimes making us hungry after a workout. Arasys does not use glucose (sugar) as its energy source, so the after-workout cravings are eliminated.
Arasys sends a signal to the nerve that controls the muscle. This is like the biological signal that the brain sends to the nerve during strenuous exercise. The Arasys signal results in a full muscle contraction that has the rhythm and potency of strenuous exercise without the effort.
Just as with regular exercise, the results from Arasys last as long as you maintain them.
Treatments only take 20 minutes.
No, treatments are non-invasive and painless.
Treatments can be performed once or twice a week.
Anyone who has an implanted electric device, such as a pacemaker or LVAD, cannot have treatment with Arasys.
Arasys targets the nerve in control of the muscle, not the muscle itself like muscle stimulators. A more in-depth description of the science behind Arasys stimulation of the nerve versus direct muscle stimulation: Although the glucose molecule holds plenty of chemical energy, it cannot be used directly for muscle contraction. Instead, muscle cells must transfer their incoming glucose supplies into ATP for energy.
Muscle Stimulation: During muscle stimulation, the outside of the muscle cell membrane is more positive than the inside. An electrical stimulus causes a reversal of this polarity, causing the muscle to twitch. The energy that powers this process comes through ATP, acting like a molecular motor, powering movement. However, ATP is not stored in large amounts in the skeletal muscle. Research has consistently shown that muscle stimulators using miliamps quickly deplete the limited ATP supply in the skeletal muscle. This limits the results that can be seen by using muscle stimulators.
Arasys direct signal to nerve: Nerve tissue (neurons and glia cells) has the ability to generate and conduct electrical signals in the body; it communicates. These electrical messages are managed by nerve tissue in the brain and transmitted down the spinal cord to the body. During exercise, an electrical signal travels from the brain to the place that the motor neuron attaches to the muscle (neuromuscular junction). Calcium is released from its storage area bringing about a muscle contraction. As the nerve impulse reaches the junction, Acetycholine & ATP are co-released from the electromotor nerve terminals. Unlike the ATP in muscle, the ATP involved in the neuronal process is not limited in supply. A number of research studies indicate that an important advantage of the microcurrent stimulation used by Arasys, is that it increases ATP up to 500%.
