Muscle Stimulator: MPO 5500 Professional Physical Therapy EMS Unit
Brief OverviewIf you're looking for a top-of-the-line muscle stimulator, look no further than the MPO-5500 professional physical therapy muscle stimulator from Medical Products Online. The MPO professional physical therapy muscle stimulator is the most advanced, powerful muscle stimulator unit that we carry. Though it's powerful and efficient, it's also highly portable, making it suitable for use on the field, in the gym, in the locker room or practically anywhere else.
This professional muscle stimulator has been designed for athletes to treat muscle injuries and is also useful for muscle spasms, fatigued muscles and muscle reeducation. Operating with a 9V alkaline battery, this physical therapy muscle stimulator features microelectronics and a dual-channel digital system with three operating modes. It sends electrical impulses to the nerves and motor units that control muscle relaxation and contraction. The MPO-5500 professional physical therapy muscle stimulator is as effective for soothing sore muscles as it is for training spastic or erratic muscles.
Two independent controllable output channels transmit electrical impulses to sore or painful muscles via electrodes, soothing muscles with passive exercise. Besides easing pain, muscle stimulator therapy can also improve muscle tone and circulation and help prevent muscle atrophy.
This unit includes:
- Patience compliance monitor
- Cap and door to protect against accidental setting changes
- Hard plastic case
- Metal belt clip
- Two lead wires
- Four 2"x2" square cloth silver connector multistick nonirritating electrodes
- 9V alkaline battery
- Instruction Manual - Click here to download
- Three-year warranty

The MPO 5500 works and feels great! This unit has a great track record and has become one of our most sought after muscle stimulators by patients and professionals alike. Dependability and power output make the Medical Products Online 5500 a no-brainer when Muscle stimulation is what you need.
The MPO 5500 is a dual channel Digital Muscle Stimulator System with three modes of operation. It is a battery operated Muscle Stimulator Unit that sends electrical impulses to the body to reach the nerves and motor units that control the muscles in relaxation and contraction phases. By controlling these phases with the device, the unit soothes muscles and causes them to contract rhythmically like putting a baby to sleep!
When the baby needs training, repetition is the answer. This device will keep on calling on the muscle fibers to all contract and relax together and reduce the chaos that is often present when muscles are in spasm and erratic.
The device is provided with two controllable output channels, each independent of each other. An electrode pair is connected to each output channel to transmit the electrical impulses to the area of pain.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscle injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment. The pulses cause the muscle to exercise passively.
EMS uses a square wave pattern to work directly on the muscle motor neurons. The use of a low frequency in conjunction with the square wave pattern allows direct work on the muscle groupings. EMS has been widely used for the treatment of muscular injuries and for the re-education of muscles, to prevent atrophy in affected muscles, and to improve muscle tone and blood circulation.
The EMS sends comfortable impulses through the skin to stimulate the nerves in the treatment area. When the muscle receives this signal it contracts as if the brain had sent the signal. As the signal strength increases, the muscle flexes as in physical exercise. Then, when the pulse stops, the muscle relaxes and the cycle starts over again. The cycle of stimulation, contraction and relaxation is the power of the EMS.
This muscle stimulator device can be worn all day or on an as needed basis. Device features include adjustable pulse rate, pulse width, and amplitude (intensity). Placements of electrodes are generally in line with muscle fibers and at the origin and insertion (beginning and end) of the muscles.
You should discuss your treatment with your physician or therapist to achieve the greatest results.
