Xenoma’s CES Exhibit to Showcase ‘e-skin EMStyle,’ Electrical Muscle Stimulation Suit that Lets a Fitness Trainer Buzz Your Body
The suit enables trainers to provide personalized services while social-distancing.
TOKYO (Jan. 11, 2020) – At CES® 2021 (Jan. 11-14), Xenoma Inc., a Tokyo-based smart apparel startup, will showcase “e-skin EMStyle Professional,” the electrical muscle stimulation suit that enables fitness trainers to send individualized levels of stimulation to their clients’ bodies to optimize the effect of their workout. Scheduled for a global release in March, the suit is a “for-gym” version of “e-skin EMStyle Personal,” a smart home workout suit that is also slated for an April release. Both products are extremely durable, comfortable and machine-washable – a feature that is missing in most smart suits – thanks to the company’s proprietary technology for stretchable electronics.
Both suits provide stable electrical stimulation to a wearer’s body via 24 electrodes, so the body can get the effect of a full workout from just 20 minutes of light exercise. Users can control the levels of stimulation through the smartphone app. In addition, the “professional” version enables fitness trainers adjust stimulation for up to 20 different suits that are connected on the same Wi-Fi network.
“Our ’e-skin EMStyle’ suits are perfect workout solutions in the Covid-19 era to maximize the effect of their home exercise or personal training because it can be washed easily in washing machines,” said Xenoma CEO Ichiro Amimori. “But what really sets our products apart from others is our proprietary Printed Circuit Fabric (PCF) technology that makes it possible for us to create these incredibly comfortable and practical suits that people would want to wear in everyday life, and we are very excited to bring them to CES.”
