1. SAFETY INFORMATION
1.1 General
ro
s
InTENSityTM 10 TENS stimulator is a portable electrotherapy
device featuring Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
(TENS) therapeutic device, which is used for pain relief. The
stimulator sends a gentle electrical current to underlying nerves
and muscle group via electrodes applied on the skin. The
parameters of device are controlled by the buttons. Its
intensity level is adjustable according to the needs of patients.
1.2 Medical background
SP
EXPLANATION OF PAIN
Pain is a warning system and the body's method of telling us that
something is wrong. Pain is important; without it abnormal
conditions may go undetected, causing damage or injury to vital
parts of our bodies. Even though pain is a necessary warning
signal of trauma or malfunction in the body, nature may have
gone too far in its design.
TE
N
Aside from its value in diagnosis, long-lasting persistent pain
serves no useful purpose. Pain does not begin until coded
message travels to the brain where it is decoded, analyzed, and
then reacted to. The pain message travels from the injured area
along the small nerves leading to the spinal cord. Here the
message is switched to different nerves that travel up the spinal
cord to the brain. The pain message is then interpreted, referred
back and the pain is felt.
EXPLANATION OF TENS
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a noninvasive, drug free method of controlling pain. TENS uses tiny
electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves to modify your
pain perception. TENS does not cure any physiological problem;
it only helps control the pain. TENS does not work for everyone;
4
however, in most patients it is effective in reducing or eliminating
the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity.
s
HOW TENS WORKS
SP
ro
There is nothing "magic" about Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve
Stimulations (TENS). TENS is intended to be used to relieve pain.
The TENS unit sends comfortable impulses through the skin that
stimulate the nerve (or nerves) in the treatment area. In many
cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate the pain
sensation the patient feels. Pain relief varies by individual
patients, mode selected for therapy, and the type of pain. In many
patients, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the
actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four
times longer). In others, pain is only modified while stimulation
actually occurs. You may discuss this with your physician or
therapist.
1.3 Indication for use
TE
N
InTENSityTM 10 TENS Stimulator should be used for the
Symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain, acute post
traumatic pain, acute post surgical pain and arthritis pain.
MPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION!

5
present in the treatment area.
Stimulation should not be applied over swollen, infected,
inflamed areas or skin eruptions (e.g. phlebitis,
thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, etc.).
4) Electrodes must not be applied to sites that might cause
current/stimulation to flow through the carotid sinus region
(anterior neck) or transcerebrally (through the head).
5) Do not use this device if the patient has a demand-type
cardiac pacemaker or any implanted defibrillator.
6) This device should not be used over poorly enervated areas.

1.5 Warnings, Cautions and Adverse Reactions
WARNINGS:
TE
N
1) This device should be used only under the continued
supervision of a licensed physician.
2) The long-term effects of chronic electrical stimulation are
unknown. Electrical stimulation devices do not have any
curative value.
3) TENS is a symptomatic treatment and, as such, suppresses
the sensation of pain, which would otherwise serve as a
protective mechanism.
4) Safety has not been established for the use of therapeutic
electrical stimulation during pregnancy. Do not use during
pregnancy unless directed by your physician.
5) Electrical stimulation is not effective for pain of central origin.
6) Electronic monitoring equipment (such as ECG monitors and
ECG alarms) may not operate properly when electrical
stimulation is in use.
7) Stimulation should not be applied over the carotid sinus
nerves, particularly in patients with a known sensitivity to the
6

carotid sinus reflex.
Stimulation should not be applied over the anterior neck or
mouth. Severe spasm of the laryngeal and pharyngeal muscles
may occur and the contractions may be strong enough to close
the airway or cause difficulty in breathing.
Stimulation should not be applied transthoracically in that the
introduction of electrical current into the heart may cause
cardiac arrhythmias.
Stimulation should not take place while the user is
connected to high-frequency surgical equipment, it may
cause burn injuries on the skin under the electrodes, as well
as problems with the stimulator.
Do not use the stimulator in the vicinity of shortwave or
microwave therapy equipment, since this may affect the
output power of the stimulator.
Never use in environments with high humidity such as in the
bathroom or when having a bath or shower.
Caution should be used in applying electrical stimulation to
patients suspected of having heart disease. Further clinical
data is needed to show there are no adverse results.
Never use near the heart. Stimulation electrodes should
never be placed anywhere on the front of the thorax
(marked by ribs and breastbone), but above all not on the
two large pectoral muscles. Here it can increase the risk of
ventricular fibrillation and lead to cardiac arrest.
Electrodes should not be placed over the eyes, in the mouth,
near the genitals or internally.
Never use on the areas of the skin which lack normal
sensation.
Apply the electrodes to clean, dry, and unbroken skin only.
Keep electrodes separate during treatment, electrodes in
contact with other could result in improper stimulation or skin
burns.
Keep the stimulator out of reach of children.
Consult your doctor if you are in any doubt whatsoever.

4.4.3 Electrode placement
The placement of electrodes can be one of the most important
parameters in achieving success with therapy. Of utmost
importance is the willingness of the physician to try the various
styles of electrode placement to find which method best fits the
needs of the individual patient.
Every patient responds to electrical stimulation differently and
their needs may vary from the conventional settings suggested
here. If the initial results are not positive, speak to your physician
about alternative stimulation settings and/or electrode placements.
Once an acceptable placement has been achieved, mark down
the electrodes sites and the settings, so the patient can easily
continue treatment at home.

6. CLEANING AND CARE
6.1 Tips for skin care
TE
N
SP
ro
s
To avoid skin irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin,
follow these suggestions:
1) Wash the area of skin where you will be placing the
electrodes, using mild soap and water before applying
electrodes, and after taking them off. Be sure to rinse soap
off thoroughly and dry skin well.
2) Excess hair may be clipped with scissors; do not shave
stimulation area.
3) Wipe the area with the skin preparation your clinician has
recommended. Let this dry. Apply electrodes as directed.
4) Many skin problems arise from the “pulling stress” from
adhesive patches that are excessively stretched across the
skin during application. To prevent this, apply electrodes
from centre outward; avoid stretching over the skin.
5) To minimize “pulling stress”, tape extra lengths of lead wires
to the skin in a loop to prevent tugging on electrodes.
6) When removing electrodes, always remove by pulling in the
direction of hair growth.
7) It may be helpful to rub skin lotion on electrode placement
area when not wearing electrodes.
8) Never apply electrodes over irritated or broken skin.
6.2 Cleaning the device
1) Remove the battery from the device every time when you
clean.
2) Clean the device after use with a soft, slight moistened cloth.
In case of more extreme soiling you can also moisten the
cloth with mild soapy water.
3) Do not use any chemical cleaners or abrasive agents for
cleaning.

s
2)
Use the device only with the leads and electrodes provided
by the manufacturer. Use only the electrode placements and
stimulation settings prescribed by your physician or therapist.
It is recommended that, at minimum, 40mm*40mm
self-adhering based, square electrodes are used at the
treatment area.
Inspect your electrodes before every use. Replace
electrodes as needed. Reusable electrodes may cause
slight skin irritation, lose adhesion and deliver less
stimulation if overused.

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 device is used exceeds the applicable
RF compliance level above, should be observed to verify
normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed,
additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting
or relocating the device.
