You’re about to learn everything you need to know about Abtronic. We took some time to create a comprehensive review, examining the side effects, ingredients, clinical studies and level of customer care. Furthermore, we read through hundreds of dieter responses from around the web. At this point we condensed all of the data we discovered in order to give you the info you need.

Abtronic Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Pronabolin.

What is Abtronic?

First off, Abtronic is a fitness system that uses EMS or Electro Muscle Stimulation. The purpose of this product is to burn off fat, tighten abdominals and exercise muscles while you relax or do other things. It is a belt, which can be strapped onto different parts of the body. This device has 10 different levels of intensity and six different exercise programs to select from. You just strap it on for 10 minutes at a time. An application gel is provided and should be applied to the skin beforehand.

We are unsure when the Abtronic was initially released, but it has been around since at least 2001. This device is fine for men and women alike and it can be used anywhere, but read on…

Product Quality – “Not the Best?”

The first thing that caught our eye was that some users found the product to be made of poor materials. According to our Research Editor, “There are a lot of customer complaints about the overall quality of the Abtronic device. Many people say this abdominal system stops working quickly or simply breaks.”

One customer stated, “I am disappointed, I could only use ABTRONIC for a week. Then, it stop working.”

“I haven’t had it for a month and it’s already broken,” said another user.

The customer service department was quick to help customers who had problems, in some cases.

“They sent me a new unit in the mail that works and I did not ask them to do so.They did that on there own,” one customer claimed.

Consumer Complaints – “From Abtronic Users”

If you check out websites such as Consumer Affairs, you will notice a high number of customer complaints regarding Abtronic. In fact, one user said, “This item came in and was majorly defective. I’m having to send it back for a refund.”

Another customer complained, “My Abtronic did absolutely nothing, and I want my money back.”

Complaints were not something everyone felt necessary.

According to one user, ‘” like the product but there are a few problems with it. It’s a little confusing.”

“Item is very cheap, however, i do use the ab portion and it works well,” said another.

Our research has revealed that if there is a certain part of a fitness machine or diet program that is especially concerning (a painful/difficult exercise routine, pills that make you jittery, a lot of customer complaints, poor product quality) the probability of long-term success is low. This means if Abtronic is not made well, this could be a serious issue.

The Science – “Clinical Proof?”

There have been studies complete on the process behind the Abtronic, but results vary. It does stimulate muscle, without a doubt, but the effect is mild and unless the stomach is thin you won’t likely see the change. At DietSpotlight, we like to see research that stands behind a products claims. This time around, we just didn’t find anything.

The Bottom Line – Does Abtronic Work?

Before you pull out that credit card, give me one more second. We appreciate that Abtronic is intended to help you tone up the abdominals, strengthen the core and improve overall fitness. However, we do not believe that this device yields the results it claims and since that’s the case, we’re hesitant about recommending it. Judging from the customer feedback and consumer complaints we found online, there are several problems to consider as well.

If you’re ready to improve muscle strength, increase stamina levels and enhance overall vitality, we suggest you go with a product that uses clinically tested ingredients, sells at an affordable price and comes with great customer service.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is our supplement called Pronabolin. The formula contains a blend of nine clinically-tested ingredients. Results are seen in publications such as The Aging Male.

Also, we’re offering a 120-day money-back guarantee and multiple-bottle discounts; which is a great sign that you’ll love our supplement.

Previous Abtronic Review (Updated October 23, 2014):

What You Should Know

The Abtronic electronic fitness system is designed to exercise your muscles while you relax. You simply put on the conductive gel and put on the Abtronic belt. While you watch television or do housework, the Abtronic system uses electronic stimulation to tighten and release your muscles.

The Abtronic belt uses EMS technology (Electronic Music Stimulation) and feasibly could work on any part of the body as long as the belt physically fits.

List of Ingredients

Not applicable.

Product Features

The system has 10 different intensity levels so that you can gradually increase your exercise as you make progress.

The Abtronic system also has 6 different exercise programs, so that you can get a balanced workout.

Each system comes with a 4 ounce bottle of firming and toning gel as well as a 2 ounce bottle of activating gel.

Advantages

  • The system could hypothetically allow you to exercise while doing other things or even while relaxing.
  • The Abtronic system is very portable and takes up very little space.
  • The product is available for as little as $60.

Disadvantages

  • In 2002, the Abtronic company lost a large court case for faulty advertizing. Quite simply, the court determined that the system did not fulfill the promises that the company marketed, such as getting a six-pack without exercising, or the assertion that using the machine for 10 minutes is the same as 600 sit-ups.
  • In the present, it is scientifically questionable whether the product actually works. Many people do not feel that the product worked the muscles at all. Even if it does work muscles some, it clearly does not give comparable exercise to a genuine workout as the company once claimed.
  • The system uses "passive" muscle stimulation, meaning that you will burn only a few calories. You cannot expect the Abtronic system to help with abdominal fat. At the most, it can only somewhat help to strengthen your muscles. Dealing with fat requires you to use more calories than you consume, and the Abtronic system is not a help for that goal.
  • Because of the court case, the Abtronic system is no longer available new. However, many previous owners are more than happy to sell their used models for a greatly reduced price.
  • Based on the scientifically questionable basis of the system, it is reasonable to ask how healthy or safe extensive use of the system actually is.

Conclusion

The Abtronic fitness system is clear evidence that fitness only comes through hard work. Many people who purchased the system in 2001 and 2002, now feel that they were cheated. It is possible that electronic muscle stimulation could be somewhat effective, but it can never be a substitute for legitimate exercise. Many products such as thermogenic fat burners can help, but fitness always requires good nutrition and consistent exercise. There are no effortless shortcuts.

It’s really good awesome product but you should get a balance diet while you are using this product.it comes with a diet plan too.

  Well first of all it does work
Elias N (Verified User)

Well first of all it does work .. but not with a half an hour a day you need to use it for a couple of hours per day atleast to get any real results and on the highest level ( 10) i recomend 25 minuttes on each of the ten programs on the highest level per day then you will see results .. you will get a flat belly and tighter skin .. how ever eat healthy low fat foods and remember to drink plenty of water.. it wont work if you put cake and and other unhealthy things down your throat… but that is just common sense!

Richard whitehand

I left out in my last message you have to use it more than they say. You have to work out what best for you and your pain, i use it for 20 mins 7 times a day. Great BUY.

  Hope to lower medicines !
Richard whitehand (Verified User)

I have a bad back the Abtronic not only relieves my pain but takes it away when it flares up. I have to take stong pain relief medication. But as i use the abtronic i hope to lower the amount of medication soon. Great bye.

  I see the results !!!
Sine Strand Taraldsen (Verified User)

I have to disagree when it comes to Abtronic. If you are overweight and think that the “six-pack” will come as you sit still, well, then I understand, but I’m not overweight and have used it for a long time. I see the results. Not only does it strengthen my abs and back muscles it also is great for a relaxing massage. I have severe back problems and been operated for this and the Abtronic is good. An other thing is that you have to do other exercises as well as have a healthy diet.Thank you.

  Health Insurance information
Rick Metayer

We would also like to say that most individuals that find themselves devoid of health insurance usually are students, self-employed and people who are without a job. More than half with the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not feel they are requiring health insurance as they are young along with healthy. Their income is frequently spent on housing, food, and also entertainment. A lot of people that do represent the working class either entire or not professional are not offered insurance by their work so they move without with the rising price of health insurance in the states. Thanks for the tips you reveal through this site.

  Abtronic strengthening my weak stomach muscles.
Amanda (Verified User)

I have used the Abtronic now for a few weeks and I am already feeling the difference. I say feeling because it is definitely strengthening my weak stomach muscles. In saying that I am combining it with regular exercise and good eating. I view this machine as an extra to my work out routine. If you are going to solely use this to get rid of tummy fat it will never happen. I have found the machine is helping my stomach muscles after three children. For women reading this the best way to cut down stomach fat in my opinion is cut out sugar. I have found my stomach has gone down so much from cutting out so much sugar. I did not buy this belt thinking it would magically make my tummy flat. I have stretch marks from three kids and only a tummy tuck will fix the pouch (however since doing regular excercise consistently my stomach has gone down more then I ever though possible). Is it worth it? for me it has been. For women with weak stomach muscles I highly recommend it. I have found that also since my stomach muscles are getting stronger I have less back pain.

Ah good me too:-)

  Is there any side effects
shakil (Verified User)

am using this 45 mins a day but i didnt foynd any changes….when sholud we use aftr food or before
..is there any side effects ….on my stomach i got lik scrubbg marks on 3 places where the 4 electrns fitted

James

The BEST time to use the Abtronic is when your body is low in energy! When you first wake up in the morning normally your body is low in energy and if combine that also first starting your day with a nice long run, either via shoelace express or on a treadmill, afterward a 1/2 hr or one hour cardiovascular work out THEN GO NUTS on your Abtronic as everyone has been mentioning above. Do this, combined with some reasonable good eating, and just watch in amazement your body come back into balance.

If you want to go all out and see MAXIMUM results here add CBD extracts into the picture and you’re on your way to feeling and being VERY healthy. Start with 5mg of CBD extract combined with 750mg of SUPERFOOD Hemp Seed Oil, 3 X per day; and say good buy to ANY chronic pain without 48-72 hours; and cure yourself of numerous disease such as diabetes, anxiety, and high blood pressure within a short period of time.

These are facts folks.. BEST WISHES EVERYONE!

  They're advertising for sale, brand new abtronics
Leonie

Just watching on a purely advertising channel on TV in Australia, and that’s why I’m checking out your site – yup, they’re advertising for sale, brand new abtronics, with slightly hard to read riders on how much you should do other things to actually get that six pack. Oh, and there’s some female body building champ. who is also plugging it…

Because in all probabilities, a court ruling/decision in one jurisdiction does not apply to another.

Am looking for a purchase of Abtronic Belt is it worth buying ? what is the cost of the product exactly ? online its shows 5000 bucks but in add they r giving half d price mention above kindly revert back

   No special get fit quick crap.
Pg

How can you in one sentence say that the abtronic belt doesn’t work and tell us that this other brand which is dearer I might add works?
I think there is enough rubbish out there.
Listen people.
If you want to loose that belly or have abb’s like the hulk, there is something on the market that is free and will actually save you money.
Want to know what it is???
Here it is in a nutshell.

STOP STUFFING YOUR FACE WITH CRAP!!!
Maintain a healthy diet and do dome exercises.
That’s it. No special get fit quick crap.
Save money cause you eat less and get fit at the same time.
I personally use my old bull worker to aid in my training at home and that works well but I have to use it !!
Any of these devices like abb king pro and so on work if you use them but so does training at home without them.
Bottom line , you have to get off your butts !!

Not everyone wants to use it because they eat crap! I’ve had 3 c-sections and 4 hernias so I’m looking for some inner abdo strengthing because I can do abdo exercise.
