This Machine Uses Magnetic Pulses to Boost Muscle Strength

The thought of muscle-building machines typically conjures up images of pin-controlled or cable-connected weightlifting contraptions, but a group of scientists and researchers over at the National University of Singapore have created a muscle-building machine that uses magnetic fields rather than heavy weights to improve your physique.

Dubbed the MRegen, this machine sends electromagnetic pulses to your muscles to mimic the impulses that you feel while working out. This prompts your muscles to essentially be fooled into thinking they were exercised, causing them to regenerate.

This muscle-building machine does not claim to be a replacement for exercise, rather, its most promising application appears to be in helping to mitigate muscle degradation in people who are not able to exercise, such as the elderly or people with mobility issues.
