Dysmenorrhea, or just period pain, is a wide spread problem among women. Menstrual cramps can get so bad one may end up skipping school or work over it. Therefore we have created a natural period pain relief device called Ova+ – to make quality of women’s life better.
This TENS unit is small and compact, making it comfortable to wear while performing day-to-day activities. Worn under clothes it will not be observed while providing easy, drug-free period pain relief all day long.
The period pain relief offered by Ova+ stretches beyond the regular menstrual cramps. It effectively provides pain relief from secondary period pains that are caused by health conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids or pelvic inflammatory disease.
Our drug-free period pain relief TENS unit is scientifically proven to provide safe and effective drug-free pain relief and is approved for use in the UK and worldwide by the NHS, EU and FDA. Additionally, it has an open circuit system integrated, which ensures that if an electrode is not attached correctly to the skin, the strength automatically resets to zero.
Do NOT use if you have a pacemaker (or you have a heart rhythm problem) or with any electronic medical devices. Using this unit with electronic medical devices may cause erroneous operation of the device. Stimulation in the direct vicinity of an implanted device may affect some models. Stimulation on the front of the neck can affect your heart rate. Very strong stimulation across the chest may cause an extra heartbeat.
Do NOT use if you are or may be pregnant; or in the first 6-8 weeks after childbirth. It is not known whether TENS may affect foetal development.
Do NOT use when driving, operating machinery, or similar actions needing muscular control. Loose pads, damaged leads, or sudden changes in contact may cause brief involuntary muscle movements.
Do NOT use to mask or relieve undiagnosed pain. This may delay diagnosis of a progressive condition.
Do NOT use if you have poor sensation in the pelvic region. You may not be able to control the intensity of stimulation safely.
Do NOT use if you have, in the area being treated: active or suspected cancer; or have undiagnosed pain with a history of cancer. Stimulation directly through a confirmed or suspected malignancy should be avoided as it may stimulate growth and promote spread of cancer cells.
Do NOT apply stimulation across your chest because the introduction of electrical current into the chest may cause rhythm disturbances to your heart, which could be lethal.
Do NOT apply Ova+ near the thorax because the introduction of electrical current may increase the risk of cardiac fibrillation.
Caution should be used if you have a bleeding disorder as stimulation may increase blood flow to the stimulated region.
Caution should be used if you have suspected or diagnosed epilepsy as electrical stimulation may affect seizure threshold.
Caution should be observed when using the Ova+ at the same time as being connected to monitoring equipment with body worn electrode pads. It may interfere with the signals being monitored.
Caution should be used following recent surgical procedures. Stimulation may disrupt the healing process.
Simultaneous connection to high frequency surgical equipment may result in burns and damage to the stimulator.
Strong electromagnetic fields (electro-surgery/ microwave cookers/ mobile phones) may affect the correct operation of this unit. If it appears to behave unusually, move it away from these devices.
Do not permit use by children unable to understand the instructions or persons with cognitive disabilities, i.e.; Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Not intended for use in an oxygen rich environment
Not intended for use in conjunction with flammable anaesthetics or flammable agents
Keep this device out of the reach of children pets and pests.
Do not put the lead wire on or wrapped around the neck.
ELECTRODE PADS CAUTION
Do NOT ignore any allergic reaction to the electrode pads: If a skin irritation develops, stop using TENS, as this type of electrodes may not be suitable for you. You may need to contact your healthcare professional to discuss other suitable options.
Do not use this device with leads or electrode pads other than those recommended by the manufacturer. Performance may vary from specification. Electrodes with smaller surface area may cause tissue irritation.
DO NOT PLACE ELECTRODE PADS
• On skin which does not have normal sensation. If the skin is numb too great a strength may be used, which could result in skin inflammation.
• On broken skin. The pads could encourage infection.
• On the front of the neck. This could cause the airway to close, giving breathing problems. May cause sudden drop in blood pressure (vasovagal response).
• Over the eyes. May affect eyesight or cause headaches.
• Across the front of the head. Effect on patients who have had strokes or seizures is not known. May affect your sense of balance. The effects of stimulation of the brain are unknown.
TO KEEP YOUR DEVICE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL CAUTIONS
Do not immerse your device in water or place it close to excessive heat such as a fireplace or radiant heater or sources of high humidity such as a nebulizer or kettle as this may cause it to cease to operate correctly.
Keep the device away from sunlight, as long-term exposure to sunlight may affect the rubber causing it to become less elastic and crack.
Keep the device away from lint and dust, as long-term exposure to lint or dust may affect the sockets or cause the battery connector to develop a bad contact.
Temperature & Relative Humidity of storage: -25°C to +70°C, up to 93% R.H. Temperature & Relative Humidity of transportation: -25°C to +70°C, up to 93% R.H.
There are no user serviceable parts. Do not attempt to open or modify the unit. This may affect the safe operation of the unit and will invalidate the warranty.
