How does Slendertone's EMS technology works?
During exercise or everyday activities like carrying shopping bags or keeping your back straight while sitting at your desk, the brain sends signals to the muscles via the nerves, making them contract and relax.
Slendertone, instead, utilises clinically-proven electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) technology to emit signals directly from the belt to your abdominal muscles, causing them to contract, work and relax in a similar way.
As well as the upper, lower and oblique abdominal muscles, Slendertone also works the deep and difficult to activate transversus abdominis (Coughlan, 2008). This muscle is the most effective at flattening the stomach and is extremely tricky to tone with conventional exercise and abs workouts.
You don't have to worry about your form or come up with the time to get it done. Slendertone Ab belts are clinically demonstrated to deliver firmer, stronger and more toned abdominal muscles while you are: at home, at work, watching TV, exercising, folding laundry, helping your kids with their homework, taking a walk...
What makes our abs belts so unique and effective?
Slendertone offers more than just high-tech EMS. Every feature and technical specification has been expertly engineered to tone deeper and achieve a stronger core, making it the most effective toning belt on the market.
Work your core any time, any place
“I just don’t have enough time.” We’ve all said it before.
For many people with an already packed schedule, squeezing in one more thing can feel overwhelming. Our belts can be worn during day-to-day activities, ab workouts and light circuits and exercise plans. You can tone your core without having to think about it nor plan it!
The perfect abdominal contraction
Our 50Hz electrical pulse frequency is proven to give maximum muscle toning. Slendertone® belts will stimulate all your major stomach muscles at the same time providing you with the perfect abdominal contraction - that means your upper abs, the lower abs, the obliques and even the deep transversus muscle!
No more back pain while doing your sit-ups! Slendertone® belts will do the work for you.
FDA cleared technology
Slendertone® Abdominal belts are the first abdominal training systems cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to improve abdominal muscle tone, strengthen abdominal muscles and develop a firmer abdomen.
Medical graded belt fit and design
The unique construction of Slendertone® features three pre-positioned, medical-grade Gel Pads, covering the central abdominals and external obliques. The gel pads have a unique conductive mesh which evenly distributes the stimulating signals for the most effective and comfortable abs workouts.
Finally, the compression belt is specifically sculpted to keep gel pads in full contact with the skin. This ensures that you’re getting the most out of every session.
The clinical research speaks for itself (and so do our results)
We work with independent professionals and leading universities to ensure that the clinical trials we conduct meet the highest possible efficacy standards.
Trials conducted by Dr John P. Porcari, Professor in Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (2005 and 2009), found that:
of users achieved firmer abs and improved definition from 6 weeks.
increase in users abdominal endurance from 6 weeks
increase in users abdominal strength from 6 weeks

*To achieve the best results, we recommend toning at least 5 times per week during your six-week Slendertone program.
Slendertone workouts are the most efficient and effective method for toning the essential abdominal muscles simultaneously, including the deep transversus abdominis, which is tricky to train with conventional sports and exercises.
What does Slendertone feel like?
When you first turn it on, the feeling may be a little strange.
As you increase the intensity, the sensation goes from a mild, tingly feeling to distinct muscle contractions. This is when our muscle toner (and you) are optimizing your workout.
The sensation is powerful but still comfortable enough to hold a conversation, work at your desk or do chores around the house while using it.
In comparison to other abs belt brands, Slendertone uses large hydrogel pads to conduct stimulating electrical pulses to your muscles. Our gel pads are medically-graded and consist of three layers, to spread the stimulation comfortably and effectively.
As with any workout, your muscles may feel a little sore after your training session.
Everyone’s starting point and training level is different. Set your own toning goals and increase them at your own pace!
