||PCT/JP2015/058230||MTG CO., LTD.||MATSUSHITA Tsuyoshi|
This electrical muscle stimulation device (1) is constituted in such a manner as to apply an electrical stimulus to a muscle. The electrical stimulus comprises a burst wave in which a pulse group output period (P) and pulse group output interruption periods (R1 to R5) are repeated alternately. During the pulse group output period (P), a plurality of square wave pulse signals (S1 to S5) are transmitted with output stop times(N1 to N5)provided therebetween. During the pulse group output interruption periods (R1 to R5), the output of the pulse signals are stopped for a longer time than the output stop times (N1 to N5). The plurality of burst waves that are repeated include positive polarity square wave pulse signals (S1, S3, S5) and negative polarity square wave pulse signals (S2, S4).
