ReduStim is a Class IIa medical device, 100% hands-free, painless and non-invasive, which reduces health risks by eliminating excess abdominal fat.
What is ReduStim?
ReduStim uses low-frequency BioMagnetic field to reduce the dangerous visceral fat around the muscle and vital organs of the body, subcutaneous fat on the abdominal as well as activating the lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and water retention from the body.
Visceral fat is closely associated with increased risks of several health problems such as:
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Type II Diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- and other associated health problems
What’s so great about ReduStim?
- Only medical weight loss device that reduces visceral fat without any metabolic constraints
- Lowers risk of diabetes, stroke, cancer and male and female infertility
- Average loss of about 650 calories per session
Patients undergo a static treatment where they lie on a table fully-clothed and covered with the ReduStim device. ReduStim uses micro-pressure and a unique drainage function for better blood circulation and effective removal of toxins.
*Please kindly bring along a pair of leggings (fully covered toes or leggings with socks) and a comfortable t-shirt top for all Redustim treatments.
Got a big belly?
A big belly is not only unsightly, it also rings alarm bells of an unhealthy lifestyle with a high risk of health hazards. This can give way to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer, and can increase the rate of infertility. ReduStim is an obesity treatment that combines low frequency magnetic fields and controlled micro-pressure to reduce abdominal fat and trim the waistline. During the treatment, one will put on a special suit connected to a device to emit electromagnetic energy to target both subcutaneous (what you can pinch) and visceral (deep abdominal) fat.
Apart from reducing fat, ReduStim can also help with:
- Enhanced lymphatic flow — Improves lymphatic drainage and hence the flow of blood and nutrients through the body
- Improved fertility — excess visceral fat can affect hormones and hence hinder chances of conceiving
- Lower risks of diseases — chances of cardiovascular diseases, liver problems and diabetes are decreased with lower body fat
When abdominal fat should be a cause for concern.
Anyone who is carrying excess fat around the stomach and midriff area should be concerned for their health. Subcutaneous fat sits under the skin and is usually visible. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sometimes genetics, can contribute to the build-up of subcutaneous fat. On the other hand, visceral fat refers to deeply situated abdominal fat that surround’s one’s vital organs. Some levels of visceral fat are normal but too much can result in health problems such as insulin resistance (diabetes), inflammation, and heart diseases. One is considered to have abdominal obesity if one’s waist circumference is higher than 88cm for women and 102cm for men.
The waistline can also reveal the location of visceral fat, which plays a key-role in cardio-vascular or cancer-related diseases. It is also a determining factor of the metabolic syndrome.
Usually, a reduction in visceral fat would involve regular physical activity, a healthier diet, a reduction in the consumption of salt, a decrease in consumption of carbohydrates and a reduction in the waistline.
However, visceral fat is very difficult to reduce using just exercise and a healthier diet. If you are looking for an easier way to reduce your waistline and lose fat, ReduStim is a safe and fast alternative to do so.
ReduStim focuses on visceral fats, specifically targeting areas at the abdomen, calves, outer thighs and knee.

*Disclaimer: Results vary for individuals. No individual result should be seen as typical.
ReduStim is a medical device based on BioStimology®, a low frequency alternating BioMagnetic field is completely harmless and does not cause any adverse effects on the body. With over 20 years of clinic studies, this painless action is based on the muscular stimulation without causing any destructive cellular process.
ReduStim ’s low frequency alternating magnetic field (50 Hz) oscillates from 0 to 4 Gauss to open the calcium channel and release calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. This action stimulates muscle contractions in both smooth and striated muscle.
Muscle contractions induces energy consumption in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and calls for natural lipolysis – breakdown of adipocytes (fat cells) and release ATP from visceral and subcutaneous fat.
Other than stimulating fat lipolysis, REDUstim’s additional action stimulates lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and water retention.
ReduStim takes the form of a device linked to a bodysuit that covers the body, from feet up to the abdomen. It works by inducing natural lipolysis and reduce visceral fat that cannot be lost with just exercise and a good diet. The technology uses a low-frequency alternating BioEnergetic field, which stimulates calcium pump. Calcium channels are found in muscle cells, even in smooth muscle.
During the 30 minute session, two actions take place simultaneously:
1. A primary action of the bodysuit is based on diffusing a BioEnergetic field by stimulating a reduction in visceral and body fat stores.
2. A secondary action of controlled micropressure on the skin, allowing lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and metabolic waste.
- Overweight or obese patients
- Patients suffering from health problems such as infertility, obesity, diabetes due to the high percentage of visceral fat.
- Patients dissatisfied with post-natal obesity
This treatment is suitable for anyone who wants to get rid of excess abdominal fat to reduce associated health risks.
However, this treatment is not suitable for:
- Pregnant women
- Pacemaker carriers
- Patients with serious health problems or visible skin injuries and cuts
- Children who have not reached biological maturity (boys below 15 years old and girls who have not started their menstruation)
Patients are advised to attend a minimum of 12 30-minute sessions. Patients can follow 1 of these 2 schedules as a guide:
- 3 sessions a week for 4 weeks
- 2 sessions a week for 6 weeks
Depending on each person’s slimming goals, the treatment can be continued with supplementary sessions. After the starter treatment, 1 to 2 maintenance sessions per month are recommended to maintain the results.
Please also book a consultation with the doctor before and after the treatment.
There are no downsides or negative side effects. Just be mindful of what you eat before and after the treatment though! Avoid heavy meals 1 to 2 hours before the treatment and avoid fatty and carbohydrate-heavy food for at least 6 hours after the treatment so as to not negate the positive results from the treatment.
With proper dietary management and ReduStim maintenance session once a month (optional), you can keep your fat percentage under control. A healthy meal plan consisting of food that help to increase your metabolism and moderate exercise should also be put into action.
We do not recommend ReduStim for these patients:
- Pregnant women
- Patients suffering in skin injuries or skin conditions
- Pacemaker carriers
Also, other contraindications concerning the micropressure function of the device includes:
- Deep venous thrombosis (DVT)
- Infections (erysipelas, lymphangitis)
- Arteriopathy (disease of the artery)
- Untreated heart problems
- Clotting disorders
