Surge Fitness uses Electric muscle stimulation (EMS) technology which is revolutionising fitness. This resistance training tones, firms and strengthens muscles in just 20 minutes a week. Supermodel Heidi Klum, Madonna, Usain Bolt, Cristiano Ronaldo and many others use EMS training to stay in shape.
The Surge Workout is a 20 minute workout experience that uses technology to amplify the signals that the brain sends to the muscles to make them contract. Developed in Germany, the machine delivers an incredibly effective and personally tailored exercise programme for all fitness levels and all ages. This is where it gets interesting. The EMS machine is more effective at penetrating muscle fibre than the brain. When the brain sends a signal to a muscle, only about 65% of muscle fibre is activated. By contrast, the external EMS stimulus penetrates nearly 100% of muscle tissue.

Dental Pod by Zima Dental
The Dental Pod is an ultrasonic cleaning machine and is specifically designed by UK scientists to clean a wide range of oral appliances. All you need is water. This clever little gadget uses high-frequency 42,000 hz ultrasonic waves to produce millions of nano-scale bubbles. These bubbles rapidly expand and collapse releasing a large amount of energy, continuously scouring and smashing the grime, bacteria and plaque while being non abrasive to your dental appliance. All surfaces and gaps are continuously cleaned leading to a short but thorough cleaning cycle.
Available in four colours, the Dental Pod is light and portable so it is great for travel too. This is a great way to quickly eliminate all bacteria, keep your appliance looking clean and removing harmful plaque build up.
