Here are certain contraindications that need to be taken into account. We can separate these into two categories, absolute and relative contraindications:



If any of the following absolute contraindications applies to you, an EMS-Training session is not allowed.


  • Acute diseases, disorders, bacterial infections, and inflammatory processes

  • Recent surgeries

  • Arteriosclerosis and other circulatory disorders

  • Stents or bypasses in the past 6 months

  • Untreated hypertension

  • Diabetes Mellitus

  • Pregnancy

  • Electrical implants, pacemakers

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

  • Tumors or cancer

  • Bleeding disorders (Haemophilia)

  • Motor Neuron Diseases, Neurological disorders (Epilepsy)

  • Abdominal or inguinal hernia

  • Acute influence of alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicants


If any of the following relative contraindications apply to you, you should visit your doctor for a written medical clearance.


  • Acute back pain without diagnosis

  • Neuralgia

  • Spinal disc herniations

  • Orthopedic implants

  • Organ diseases, especially Kidney diseases

  • Cardiovascular conditions

  • Acute Motion Sickness

  • Edema

  • Open skin injuries, wounds, eczemas or burns

  • Prescription medications


Prior to your first EMS-Training session, a trainer will sit down with you and go through your medical history to see if any contraindications are present.


Since these are mostly very serious conditions on their own, a general common sense approach to working out is enough to ensure a safe EMS session.
