The Ab Contour Belt wraps around the stomach. Once activated, a mild shock comes from the belt and the electrical impulse stimulates the reflex of the muscles. The reflex movement is an autonomic response to the electrical charge. Muscle contraction is one component to muscle-building. Repetitive contractions stress muscles to the point of damage. The body will rebuild the muscle stronger to deal with the stress. But it have some drawbacks such as allergic reaction, burning and pain.


(a) Allergic Reaction:

The Ab Contour Belt uses conductive gel pads. To protect skin from the current, you attach gel pads over the electrodes. One potential side effect is an allergic reaction to the material or chemical in the pad. During use, if you feel an itching sensation on the skin, stop the device and remove the belt.


(b) Pain:


The electrical stimulation from the Ab Contour Belt can be uncomfortable. When the device sends an electrical impulse, you may feel mild discomfort, and with each contraction that discomfort may increase. If the action of the belt causes you pain, remove it immediately.


(c) Burning:

Burns are a distinct possibility from the Ab Contour Belt, especially if the gel pads are worn or applied incorrectly. The pads protect your skin. If not positioned over the electrode, you may get burned. Follow the directions with the product for replacement of gel pads.


(d) Pacemaker:

If you have a pacemaker, you cannot use the Ab Contour Belt, or any electrical stimulation device. The U.S Food And Drug Administration (FDA) reports that these devices can interfere with the rhythm of a pacemaker. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure whether the Ab Contour device is safe for you.
