Abstract


A eletroestimulação de corpo inteiro (WB-EMS, do inglês whole-body electromyostimulation) é uma técnica que vem se tornando mais popular em virtude de sua oferta cada vez mais frequente em academias e centros de fitness em muitos países, inclusive no Brasil. Estudos recentes demonstraram efeitos positivos da WB-EMS sobre força, qualidade de vida, desempenho e respostas de composição corporal, porém ainda muito se especula sobre sua real eficácia, além dos questionamentos sobre a segurança da técnica. Dessa forma, o objetivo dessa revisão bibliográfica foi analisar os potenciais benefícios e riscos da WB-EMS nas mais diversas populações e para as mais diversas finalidades. Os resultados aqui apresentados demonstram que o WB-EMS é um método interessante de treinamento para melhora da força, desempenho, alterações positivas da composição corporal e melhoras na saúde mental, porém mais estudos são necessários, principalmente utilizando técnicas mais precisas de avaliação das diferentes variáveis e populações mais relacionadas com os desfechos observados.
