edesign, weren't it you talking about the vibration pad exercise device a few weeks ago?

This device seems like it's basically an electrical stimulator -- that is, it uses electricity to force the abdominal muscles to contract repetitively. If that's what it is, it probably does work as long as its used in conjunction with exercise, just like that vibration pad thingie (which also basically forces extra muscle activity).

Physical therapists use electrical muscle stimulation all the time....

It probably is capable of improving the muscle tone itself, but not doing anything about the fat.

You're also probably better off just concentrating on running, swimming, crunches, etc. ;)
