Global superstar, Will Smith, caught our attention in his intimate six-episode chronicle of his personal fitness journey, where we noticed a therapeutic device being used. A particularly memorable episode, humorously titled ‘I Blew The Deadline for My Book | Best Shape of My Life,’ offers viewers an inside look at his wellness regime. Amid his characteristic jovial banter, an advanced therapeutic device used during Smith’s hamstring rehabilitation, which appears to be the emFieldPro by Zimmer MedizinSysteme, can be observed.

At the 11:57 mark, Smith candidly talks about his hamstring discomfort and his unique therapy session, humorously referring to the treatment as getting his “ass shocked.” As we watch, we see the static treatment applicator of what appears to be an emFieldPro device, sporting the Zimmer MedizinSysteme logo, non-invasively delivering its electromagnetic field to the area of Smith’s hamstring. He amusingly beatboxes along with the rhythmic pulses of the treatment, showcasing his innate ability to inject humor into even the most mundane of situations.

The Zimmer MedizinSysteme device seen in the video is known to provide therapy for conditions similar to what Smith refers to as his “hamstring issue”. It’s an authentic glimpse of how advanced technology plays a vital role in maintaining the health of even the most iconic figures.

The emFieldPro, meticulously engineered in Germany by Zimmer MedizinSysteme, is designed to take High Energy Inductive Therapy (HEIT) to new heights. It uses the human body’s conductivity to magnetic fields, generating a potent magnetic field of up to 3 Tesla (equivalent to 30,000 Gauss). This process works toward optimizing the function of nerve cells, muscles, and blood vessels. All of this happens within typically 10 to 20 minutes, with no need for disrobing.

This episode’s humor strikes a chord with viewers, as Smith’s book deadline seems to have been “blown” amidst a self-imposed physical challenge and a comical misadventure of talking big and underestimating his security guard, ‘Ran’. Smith’s defeat in the challenge and his hamstring injury add a level of intrigue and relatability to his quest for peak physical health. Amidst this, his numerous professional commitments indeed make for a challenging but engaging juggling act.
