We will examine the operation in more detail later in your instructions but the principle is relatively easy to
understand. There are two separate controls/channels, one for the feet, being band 1 and one for the pads being
band 2. Place your feet on the foot plates, turn on ElectroFlex with the central on/off switch (hold down for 3
seconds to activate), choose one of the 10 different treatment programmes and start to increase the intensity to a
comfortable level. There are 40 different levels. When you start to feel the mild electro-therapy will depend on your
own nerve sensitivity. Certain individuals will feel nothing until the intensity is up at a high level, others will feel the
stimulation at relatively low levels. This is completely normal.

NotE 1: At 80MHz and 800MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NotE 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and
reflection from structures, objects and people.
(a) Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land
mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with
accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey
should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the ElectroFlex is used exceeds the
applicable RF compliance level above, the ElectroFlex should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal
performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the ElectroFlex.
