About this product
■■Intended purpose
This product is a massage appliance that combines low frequency and heating (this product is
not a medical instrument).
This instrument releases low frequency current to the body through electrodes attached on the
body, which triggers vibration that is utilized to massage tired body parts. Furthermore, electric
heat is used to provide heat for relaxing the muscles.
The product is designed for home use.
■■What is low frequency instrument?
This instrument releases low frequency current to the body through electrodes attached on the
body, which triggers vibration that is utilized to massage tired body parts.
■■What is heating instrument?
Applying heat on human body dilates the blood vessels due to the rise in temperature of the
skin, which in turn promotes better circulation of blood.
■■Rough standard on operating time
Approximately 15 minutes per site is the rough standard of operation. Continuing beyond
15 minutes can cause poor health.
The product incorporates a timer that automatically turns off power when about 15 minutes are
elapsed since the start of an operation.
CAUTION:
Wipe all sweat or moisture from the skin prior to use.

Care of this equipment
To care for the gel pad, disconnect it from the main unit.
■■Servicing gel pads
The gel pad needs to be cared for in the following situations:
• Gel pad has lost adhesiveness
• When stimulation during use has weakened
• When stimulation during use feels strengthened
• When the gel pad is dirty
• Gel pads do not stick to the protective plate
Replace the gel pad if you feel there is not enough/too much stimulus during use even after
caring for the gel pad.
①① Drip a few drops of water and rub with the ball of a finger to remove lifted contaminants
※ Do not pour too much water. It will cause loss of adhesive strength or damage to the adhesive surface.
※ Do not scrape the surface with a nail or a brush.
※ Do not use any detergent or the like.
※ Prevent dripping water drops on a plug, electrode cord or handle.
Handle
Adhesive surface
②② Hold on the handle and thoroughly eliminate water and dry naturally with pad surface facing
