EMS-enabled Gym of the Future
Global Premiere at SXSW 2018
This summer, MTG Co., Ltd. (Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan; President Tsuyoshi Matsushita) is opening a training gym in a new addition to the SIXPAD brand, the wearable training gear. Ahead of the Japanese opening, it will be exhibiting at the SXSW (South by Southwest) Trade Show taking place in Austin, Texas, USA from 11-14 March 2018.
Since its launch in July 2015, SIXPAD has been rolled out widely, starting in the UK, Japan and five Asian countries, with total sales exceeding 1 million units (July 2017).

It was born from the synergy of the EMS theory of Emeritus Professor Toshio Moritani of Kyoto University, the world's leading authority on sports medicine, MTG' s proprietary waveform and the training method of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. These three elements brought about the training gear which features CMM Pulse as its core technology. The newest addition to the SIXPAD brand is its first members-only service, The "Gym of the Future: EMS Training Gym". Using advanced IoT-enabled devices, you exercise muscles throughout your body.

You go through an EMS-integrated training programme while you check your posture and the muscles you must focus on in the digital training mirror. This allows for the most efficient full-body training in a mere 15 minutes.

■Training Items
1. Control Tower

Managing and optimising training
Device for controlling the EMS full body suit and digital training mirror.
Connected through Bluetooth, it stores personal training levels using memory functionality through the IoT,realising effective training.
 
2. EMS Full Body Suit

Simultaneous exercise of every muscle in the body
The EMS suit is specialised for training and is fitted with electrodes in the optimum locations and sizes for the body's muscle characteristics. The close fit for an even delivery of electricity was designed with ease of movement in mind.
It further provides superior water retention for highly effective impulse distribution, and efficiently trains muscles throughout the body at the same time.
 
3. Digital Training Mirror

For higher quality training
The mirror helps achieve a correct training posture. Detailed skeletal information, obtained through the built-in sensors, is analysed and individual guidance for optimum training movement is displayed. Based on the data received from the control tower, it displays the location of those muscles that you need to focus on more.
■About the SIXPAD - Wearable Training Gear
SIXPAD is EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) training gear for home use. It was born from the synergy of the EMS theory of Emeritus Professor Toshio Moritani of Kyoto University, the world's leading authority on sports medicine, MTG' s proprietary waveform and the training method of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. These three elements brought about the training gear which features CMM Pulse as its core technology.
In April 2017, five IoT-ready EMS devices were launched which offer training visualisation and improved operation through its connection with the smartphone app. This was developed as training gear to aid exercise motivation.
