LAS VEGAS – UFC, the world's premier mixed martial arts organization, and Lutronic, a leading innovator of aesthetic and medical advanced laser and related technology, today announced that Lutronic's Accufit, the new electro-muscular stimulation system used to help prevent injury and expedite recovery, will be made available for use to UFC fighters and other elite athletes through the UFC Performance Institute.
Accufit is intelligently designed to deliver direct muscle activation treatments via precisely controlled electrical stimulation, or waveforms, which trigger a variety of responses depending on the chosen treatment mode. These unique waveforms enable various muscle contractions, both concentric and eccentric, to emulate a variety of exercise patterns by themselves or in sequence, controlled by an intelligent real-time impedance feedback system. Accufit enables efficient and more comprehensive muscle activation for patients while maximizing comfort. Accufit has unprecedented levels of engagement and comfort compared to other systems, enabling faster, effective treatments, and can comprehensively and simultaneously treat multi-zone areas in only 30 minutes.
"Accufit is a highly innovative muscle activation and stimulation device based on intensive research into the unique and complex ways bodies build muscle," said James Bartholomeusz, CTO, Lutronic. "The device builds real muscle in addition to functional strength. Accufit can assist in the prevention of injury as well as an expedited recovery from injury or surgery. This will help keep fighters healthy or get them back to the Octagon more quickly following injury."
