Xenoma presents outdoor compatible ‘e-skin EMStyle’ whole-body EMS suit at CES 2020

Tokyo, Japan, December 20, 2019 ? Xenoma’s lineup for CES 2020 includes the ‘e-skin EMStyle’.Free of cables or base stations, this whole-body suit is made to shake up the fitness world.

The Japanese smart apparel startup Xenoma is showcasing a broad range of smart apparel solutions at CES 2020. The applications range from medical, research and industrial use to rehabilitation and fitness. The ‘e-skin Sleep & Lounge’, a honoree for the CES 2020 Innovation award, is targeting the elderly in an ever-aging society. The ‘e-skin EMStyle’ targets an equally important issue: The lack of fitness in the developed world.

A full muscle workout with an EMS suit cuts training down to 20 minutes of light exercise every second or third day*1. Nonetheless, EMS acceptance has been limited so far. Xenoma presents now a whole-body EMS suit without any cables or base stations. This makes outdoor exercise as much of a training option as yoga or regular muscle training.

Flexibility is not the only mark of the ‘e-skin EMStyle’. Following the slogan “Wear stylish, be stylish”, it is also comfortable and fashionable enough to make training fun ? indoors and outdoors. No matter if it has been is a lack of time or a lack of constitution, the ‘e-skin EMStyle’ offers a real alternative to anyone not up for a regular work-out routine.
