Frequently asked questions

How does it work for rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation- Using muscle testing and the Neubie, we can scan the body for biofeedback hot spots that help us identify weakness in the kinetic chain that need to be addressed in order to decrease pain and improve functionality. Once identified, we use the Neubie as part of our toolkit to help you recover MUCH faster than you would be able to without the Neubie.

How does it work for fitness?

Fitness- In one exercise session with the Neubie your muscles are able to work as much as several traditional workouts. This means accelerating your fitness gains while teaching your neuromuscular system to be more effective.

How does it work for performance?

By re-educating your nervous system to be more effective, the Neubie increases the % of motor units that the body can contract which results in stronger muscle contractions and greater force production. Improved mind-muscle connections are often seen and athletes are better able to activate all the muscles involved in an activity after Neubie sessions. By varying the frequency and intensity of the DC the trainer can help the athlete realize improved strength, speed, and precision of movement.

How is this different from my e-stim device I have at home?

(from “The Science” page) …. Treatments with the NEUBIE and NeuFit System are active rather than passive. Traditional e-stim treatments have patients lying down, passively accepting the current and not moving. In contrast, the DC signal of the NEUBIE actually permits movement, even at therapeutic levels of stimulation. This allows for optimal, eccentric contractions, which research is proving to be a major factor in effective rehabilitation.

What can I expect from a Neubie training session?

Electrodes will be applied to targeted muscles and you will work through a variety of exercises with and without weights depending on your needs. During the activities, the frequency and intensity of the current will be changed by your trainer in order to elicit the best response. Typically, you will feel strong muscle contractions in spite of using weights that are much, much less than what you would typically use. You will feel as though you had an intense workout even though you did not have to “go heavy.” The next few days it is typical to have some muscle soreness but no joint pain!

What can I expect from an Neubie rehab session?

A series of muscle tests and muscle activation techniques will be implemented prior to using the Neubie. Once this is completed, the Neubie may be used to scan your body for “hot spots” signifying areas in the kinetic chain that need to be addressed. After the scan, the Neubie is set to a therapeutic mode and electrodes are place at hot spots. The practitioner will then have you move through a series of activities while applying current to the hot spots. Afterwards, your range of motion and pain level will be reassessed to inform future rehab actions.
