To reposition GelPads during a session:
• Always pause the program currently running, unfasten the belt and
then refasten it behind your back after the GelPads’ positions have
been adjusted.
After strenuous exercise or exertion:
• Always use a lower intensity to avoid muscle fatigue.
Note:
• An effective session should not cause undue discomfort.
Important:
• For first time users, muscle stimulation can be an unusual sensation.
We recommend that you begin in a seated position with low stimulation
intensity settings to familiarize yourself with the sensation before
progressing to higher intensity settings.
• Keep your unit out of the reach of children.
• The studs and GelPads must not be connected to other objects.
• Do not use your unit at the same time as any other device which transfers
an electrical current into the body (e.g., another muscle stimulator).
• Do not touch the GelPads or metal studs while the unit is switched on.
• Do not use while driving, operating machinery or cycling or during any
activity in which involuntary muscle contractions may put the user at
undue risk of injury.
• The belt is for single person use only.
• Cease using your unit if you are feeling light headed or faint. Consult
your doctor if this happens.
• Do not over exert yourself when using muscle stimulation. Any workout
should be at a level comfortable for you.
• Do not use your unit if you are wearing a belly-button ring. Remove the
ring before you begin a session.
• SLENDERTONE will not accept responsibility if the guidelines and instructions
supplied with this unit are not followed.
• Although compliant with applicable EMC requirements, this device
may still interfere with more sensitive equipment, please move away or
switch off.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING
CHECKLIST
If you have problems getting your SLENDERTONE FLEX to work, you should go
through the following checklist:
When did you last change your pads?
Pads need to be changed every 20-30 sessions. Call our support
line below to place an order.
Have you removed all the plastic covers from both sides of the
pads?
Remember to keep one set of covers to protect the black side
of the pads during storage.
Are the pads covering the metal studs?
Double-check the pads on your arm garment to ensure that the
grid side of each pad is fully covering the metal studs.
Are the batteries inserted correctly?
The batteries must be inserted in a specific way for the unit to
work (see page 6). If you find any corrosion within the battery
compartment call the support line below for assistance.
Is your unit inserted into the holder properly?
Remove the unit and wipe the pin with a dry cloth. Then re-insert
the unit, pushing it until it clicks into place.
Are the pads and belt positioned correctly?
Ensure the large, center pad is directly over your navel and
that the smaller pads are directly between your hip-bones
and ribs.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Can I use SLENDERTONE FLEX for post natal exercise?
Yes. If you are using your SLENDERTONE unit for post natal toning, you
should only begin the exercises a minimum of 6 weeks after childbirth and you must consult your doctor first. If you have had a caesarean in
the past three months, you must consult your doctor for approval
before using SLENDERTONE FLEX.
How do I know when to replace the pads?
With time the pads pick up skin debris and may need to be replaced as
this makes the stimulation less comfortable. You may notice the signal
is weakening even if the batteries are OK. This usually indicates that
the pads are wearing and will soon need replacing. You can check this
by checking the unit with new batteries and/or adjusting the belt to
ensure correct positioning. New pads can be purchased from your
nearest slendertone retailer, online at www.slendertone.com, or from
our Toll Free Customer Service Line at 1-800-551-2443.
The pads are not sticking to the belt even though they are fairly new.
Can this be improved?
Ensure the grid side of the pad is stuck to the belt. If the grid side is
facing you, you should reverse the pad so that the black side is facing
you. With the liner still on the pads, press the edges of each pad very
firmly onto the belt before and after each session.
The stimulation is uncomfortable. How can I improve this?
Ensure the pads are positioned correctly and that they are pressed firmly
against your skin. You can check their placement by switching off your
unit and repositioning the belt as described on page 6. You may also find
it beneficial to rub a moisturizer into the skin between sessions.
I find it difficult putting on the belt. What should I do?
If you have trouble fitting the belt around your waist, you should hold
the belt by the ends, position the central pad as usual and stretch the
10
PRODUCT
belt as far as you can before fastening it behind your back. A belt
extension is also available from your SLENDERTONE retailer, online at
www.slendertone.com, or from our Toll Free Customer Service Line at
1-800-551-2443.
My skin is red after the exercise. Is this a problem?
Some redness of the skin after a flex session is normal. It is partly due to
an increase in the blood-flow under the skin and should fade after the
treatment. You may also experience some reddening of the skin due to
the pressure of the stretched belt. This is common and is the same as
the pressure marks you can get from tight clothing. You should not be
concerned about this, but should only wear the belt during a session. If
it is excessive, you may have the intensity too high, which can increase
the reddening in sensitive skin. Try using the unit at a lower intensity for
a few days. You should rub a moisturizer into the skin between sessions.
If the problem persists, you should stop using the unit.
I can feel a tingling sensation in my legs during an exercise. What
should I do?
Moving the two smaller pads upward and inward (ie. towards the center
of your body) on your waist should prevent this.
I can feel my waist muscles exercising but not my stomach muscles.
Pause the program and reposition the central pad slightly lower on your
stomach. If this doesn’t help, move the 2 small pads to a smaller figure
setting on the belt (towards the central pad).
I can feel my stomach muscles exercising but not my waist muscles.
Pause the program and reposition the central pad slightly higher on
your stomach. If this doesn’t help, move the 2 small pads to a larger
figure setting on the belt (away from the central pad).
