Lutronic and UFC announce that Lutronic’s Accufit, the new electro-muscular stimulation system used post-surgery to help expedite recovery, will be made available for use to UFC mixed martial arts fighters and other elite athletes through the UFC Performance Institute.

“Accufit provides a higher energy multi-dimensional muscle workout, and the body contouring improvement is dramatic. This 3rd generation intelligent technology helps patients define their muscles without the gym,” explained Anne Chapas, MD – Union Derm NY, NY.

Accufit is designed to deliver direct muscle activation treatments via controlled electrical stimulation, or waveforms, which trigger a variety of responses depending on the chosen treatment mode. These unique waveforms enable various muscle contractions, both concentric and eccentric, to emulate a variety of exercise patterns by themselves or in sequence, controlled by an intelligent real-time impedance feedback system.

Accufit’s patented energy delivery system and programs allow for fast, effective treatments which can simultaneously treat multi-zone areas in only 30 minutes. This highly specific and tailored approach to muscle engagement enables highly intensive, anatomically accurate muscle activation for patients while maximizing comfort.

“Unlike previous technologies Accufit was designed from the ground up to be a highly specific and efficient muscle activation and stimulation device. We developed Accufit using core biomechanical principles combined with intensive research into the unique and complex ways bodies build muscle,” said James Bartholomeusz, CTO, Lutronic. This will help keep fighters healthy or get them back to the Octagon more quickly following surgery. 

“Accufit’s direct stimulation capabilities and unique waveforms enable our UFC PI post-surgical rehabilitation athletes to achieve both concentric and eccentric muscle contractions directly following surgery,” said Heather Linden, UFC’s Director of Physical Therapy. “With these capabilities, partnered with our advanced rehabilitation protocols, we are seeing great results, which is leading to a reduction in muscle atrophy and quicker muscle activation following post-surgical procedures.”
