Do NOT use if you have a pacemaker (or if 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.
Do NOT use during the first three months of pregnancy. It is not known whether TENS and EMS may affect foetal development.
Do NOT use on the abdomen in the later stages of pregnancy. Stop using immediately if you experience unexpected contractions.
Do NOT use when driving, operating machinery, or similar actions needing muscular control. Loose electrode 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, 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.
Do NOT use simultaneously with high frequency hospital diagnostic/therapeuticequipment. Doing so may result in burns at the site of the electrodes and possible damage to device.
Do NOT use electrodes on the front of the neck. Stimulation on the front of the neck can affect your heart rate or cause contraction of the throat.
Do NOT use electrodes across the chest. Very strong stimulation across the chest may cause an extra heartbeat and/or rhythm disturbances to your heart, which could be lethal.
Do NOT use in close proximity (e.g. 1 m) to a shortwave or microwave as this may produce instability in the stimulator output.
Do NOT apply 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.
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 device 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.
Caution Do not permit use by children unable to understand the instructions or persons with cognitive disabilities, i.e.; Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Caution Keep away from children under 5 years of age, pets and pests. Long lead wires and charging cable - risk of strangulation in infants.
Caution should be observed when using the Sports TENS at high strength settings. Sports TENS has a Yellow LED light on output socket which means the output will exceed 10 mA (R.M.S) or 10 V (R.M.S) averaged over any period of 1 sec. Prolonged use at high settings may cause muscle injury or tissue inflammation.
Caution Not intended for use in an oxygen rich environment.
Caution Not intended for use in conjunction with flammable anaesthetics or flammable agents.
Caution The patient is an intended operator.
Caution Do not service and maintain the device while in use with a patient
Caution 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.
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 electrode 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 on the brain are unknown.
ELECTRODE PADS CAUTION
Caution: Do not ignore any allergic reaction to the electrode pads: If a skin irritation develops, stop using the device, as this type of electrodes may not be suitable for you. Alternative electrode pads specially made for sensitive skin are available (see E-696-SS).
Caution: 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.
Caution: Do not use high intensity settings if electrodes are smaller than 50x50mm.
Note: Electrode pads supplied have no measurable latex content.
TO KEEP YOUR DEVICE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL CAUTIONS
Caution: 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.
Caution: Keep the device away from sunlight, as long-term exposure to sunlight may affect the rubber causing it to become less elastic and crack.
Caution: 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.
Caution: Temperature & Relative Humidity of storage: -10°C to +60°C, 15% to 75% R.H.
Temperature & Relative Humidity of transportation: -10°C to +60°C, 15% to 75% R.H.
Caution: 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.
Note: There are no known side effects to use and long-term use is not harmful. However, the device works your muscles and unaccustomed amounts of exercise may produce muscle ache. If this happens, simply reduce the strength of the machine or allow your muscles to rest until the aching disappears.
