User Interface
  • Custom LCD display
  • LED backlighting for use in low light
  • Indicators for “Low Battery” and “Pause”
  • Flashing indicator to show current flow
Output Type(IF) Interferential, constant; (NM)
Neuromuscular, uses a 6 sec ON, 6 sec
OFF duty cycle. The ON cycle Includes:
a 2 sec ramp-up period
Output Current0-50 mA in 0.5 mA increments
Base Carrier Frequency4000 Hz, fixed medium frequency
Interference Frequency1-150 Hz in 1 Hz increments
Waveform
  • Standard (4 electrode): 2 channels each
    having square wave outputs
  • Premodulated (2 electrode): 1 channel
    with rectangular waves
Pulse Coordination Modes
  • Continuous
  • 1|1 Oscillating 60% of set frequency for
    1 sec, then 160% for 1 sec
    Cycle repeats every 1 sec
  • 6|6 Oscillating 60% of set frequency for 6
    sec, then 160% for 6 sec
    Cycle repeats every 6 sec
  • 6|6 60% of set frequency then ramps to
    160% of set frequency over 6 sec; the next
    6 sec it ramps from 160% to 60%
    Cycle repeats every 12 sec
Pulse Duration
  • Standard: Fixed at 125 μs for each
    phase
  • Premodulated: 5-125 μs
VectoringIncreases one channel’s amplitude
while simultaneously decreasing
(by the same percentage) the other
channel’s amplitude with a single
key press. The range of adjustment
will be 25% of the user setting. At
the maximum level of change, one
channel will be at 75% of original
setting and the other channel will
be at 125% of original setting.
Vector SweepContinuously changes the amplitudes
of the 2 channels through the
vectoring range (75% of original
setting to 125% of original setting)
over 60 sec
Automatic Switching
to Next Preset
1-75, or OFF

Indications

  • Relaxation of muscle spasms
  • Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
  • Increasing local blood circulation
  • Muscle re-education
  • Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis
  • Maintaining or increasing range of motion

Contraindications

Stimulators should not be used on patients with cardiac demand pacemakers

Adverse Reactions

Skin irritation and burns beneath the electrodes have occasionally been reported with the use of stimulators.
