As track cyclist Joe Truman competes for a place in the UK Olympic team, he recently spoke of the benefits of using a PEMF device in his daily training regime. A day later, Joe was featured in a BBC documentary, set in Japan and narrated by Chris Hoy, the UK athlete with the most (six) Olympic gold medals.
The BBC film focuses on Japan’s tough Keirin cycling championships, a sport in which Hoy himself participated and in which Joe is now the only UK rider. In January this year, Joe won the Keirin Championship at the British National Track Championships and he’s now a strong contender for the UK Olympic team.
So how does a Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields (PEMF) device help an aspiring Olympic athlete? Joe explains it in the following endorsement:
” I’ve been using my iMRS PEMF system for the past 6 months in my (now extended) journey towards the Olympics. I’ve experienced a whole host of benefits, including boosted energy levels, less fatigue in the run up to competitions, a clearer perspective after using it in the morning and a better night’s rest after using it in the evening. I also picked up a lower back injury late last year and found it effective in reducing pain and warming the area with capillarisation. And thanks to Paul Lowe from the Life Mat Company (a consultant for Swiss Bionic Solutions, the manufacturer of the device) who guided me in how to use PEMF most effectively. ”
In terms of how he used his iMRS, Joe emphasised that consistent use was important and ” using a high intensity level for relatively short periods, before training and first thing in the morning, gave me the most benefit. ”
Note that Joe is talking here of the highest intensity levels on the iMRS which is itself a very low-intensity PEMF device. Joe’s case is further evidence that low-intensity PEMF, used consistently and intelligently, is quite sufficient to generate improvements at the highest levels of athletic performance — without the potential risks of using high-intensity PEMF (hundreds to thousands of times more powerful).
