Mynd is the newest addition to the pain relief range for TensCare, focusing specifically on prevention and treatment of pain caused by migraines. Slim, lightweight and rechargeable, this wearable device not only provides migraine relief but also reduces the occurrence of attacks. Long lasting battery and a travel pouch makes Mynd adapt to your life rather than you building your day around it.
When used on one's forehead, Mynd reduces migraine signals by disrupting signals to the trigeminal nerve by sending a gentle electric current through the gel electrode pad.
For your convenience and easier migraine relief, we have developed our electrodes to be reusable. This means that the three gel pads that come with the unit will last a while before you need them replaced.
Our migraine relief unit has been clinically-proven to relieve and prevent migraines by using TENS technology. Small in size, travel-friendly and rechargeable, Mynd also offers two treatment modes and 40 adjustable levels of intensity, allowing the user to optimize the therapy to suit their individual needs.
The device should be used in strict compliance with the safety and operating instructions provided in the manual.
Do not use if you have unresolved brain or facial injuries.
Do not use MYND on any other areas apart from the forehead. Use on the chest or neck may affect heart or implanted devices and may affect epileptic seizure threshold. May also affect body worn monitoring devices.
Do not use MYND if you have a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or other implanted metallic or electronic device. Such use could cause electric shock, burns, electrical interference, or death.
Do not use if you have, in the area being treated: active or suspected cancer or 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.
After a MYND session, wait an hour before undertaking an activity that requires concentration. You may experience drowsiness or lack of concentration.
Do not place electrode pads on broken skin. The electrode pads could encourage infection.
Do not use MYND in close proximity (less than 1 meter) to short wave or microwave therapy equipment as it may produce instability in MYND output.
It can be dangerous to connect MYND with devices not described in this user manual.
Do not modify this equipment without authorization of the manufacturer.
Keep away from children under 5 years of age. Long cord - risk of strangulation in infants.
Do not use simultaneously with high frequency hospital diagnostic/therapeutic equipment.
Doing so may result in burns at the site of the electrodes and possible damage to device.
Do not apply MYND near the thorax because the introduction of electrical current may increase the risk of cardiac fibrillation.
Stimulation should not be applied across or through the head, directly on the eyes, covering the mouth, on the front of the neck (especially the carotid sinus), or from electrodes placed on the upper back or crossing over the heart.
Do not ignore any allergic reaction to the electrode pads: If a skin irritation develops, stop using MYND, as a small number of users may have an adverse reaction to the gel.
Trigeminal neuralgia and Ophthalmic shingles make facial nerves hypersensitive, so use of MYND could be painful.
Caution should be used if you have a bleeding disorder as stimulation may increase blood flow to the stimulated region.
Strong electromagnetic fields (electrosurgery/ microwave cookers/ mobile phones) may affect the correct operation of this unit. If it appears to behave unusually, move it away from these devices.
Not intended for use in an oxygen rich environment.
Not intended for use in conjunction with flammable anaesthetics or flammable agents.
The patient is an intended operator.
Do not service and maintain the device while in use with a patient.
Changing the gel is the only maintenance the patient should perform.
Maintenance and all repairs should only be carried out by an authorized agency. The manufacturer will not be held responsible for the results of maintenance or repairs by unauthorized persons. If necessary, we will provide circuit diagrams, component part lists or other information that will assist authorized service personnel to repair the device.
Degraded gel pads can negatively impact performance or cause other problems.
Keep this device out of the reach of
children pets and pests.
Do not put the lead wire on or wrapped around the neck.
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 socket.
Do not attempt to open or modify the device. This may affect the safe operation of the unit and will invalidate the warranty.
Silicone and backside gels on the surface of the device may come into contact with the patient or operator. If allergic to these materials, avoid contact and discontinue use.
Intolerance to the paresthesia caused by electrical stimulation
Intolerance to the strong pressure on dental, forehead, cervical pains and tension-type headache
Arousal and sleep changes
Vomiting and nausea at the end of stimulation
Increased tinnitus during the session
Mild pain over one eyebrow, numbness at the back of the head, feeling of abrupt electrical variation.
Discomfort during treatment: A small portion of users may find the stimulation to be very uncomfortable. This feeling usually goes
away as you become used to it. However, for some patients this discomfort remains. If so the patient should reduce the intesity.
Neck pain: At the start of treatment you may tense your neck muscles when you are using MYND, and this can lead to an aching neck. If this happens, try resting your head on a pillow during treatment.
