1. Safety information
1.1 General
InTENSity Select Combo is a portable electrotherapy device
featuring four therapeutic modes : Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve
Stimulation (T
TM
pain relief and electrical muscle stimulation. The stimulator sends
gentle electrical current to underlying nerves and muscle groups
via electrodes applied on the skin. The parameters of the device
are controlled by the buttons on the front panel. The intensity level is
adjustable according to the needs of patients.
1.2 Medical background
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.
Aside from its value in diagnosis, long-lasting persistent pain
serves no useful purpose. Pain does not begin until the 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
4
only helps control the pain. TENS does not work for everyone;
however, in most patients it is effective in reducing or eliminating
the pain, allowing for a return to normal activity.
HOW TENS WORKS
There is nothing “magic” about Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve
Stimulation (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 patient,
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.
EXPLANATION OF EMS
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is an internationally accepted
and proven way of treating muscular injuries. It works by sending
electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the
muscle to exercise passively. It is a product derived from the
square waveform, originally invented by John Faraday in 1831.
Through the square wave pattern it is able to work directly on
muscle motor neurons. This device has low frequency and in
conjunction with the square wave pattern allows direct work on
muscle groupings. This is being widely used in hospitals and
sports clinics for the treatment of muscular injuries and for the reeducation of paralyzed muscles, to prevent atrophy in affected
muscles and improving muscle tone and blood circulation.
5
HOW EMS WORKS
The EMS units send comfortable impulses through the skin that
stimulate the nerves in the treatment area. When the muscle
receives this signal it contracts as if the brain has sent the signal
itself. As the signal strength increases, the muscle flexes as in
physical exercise. Then when the pulse ceases, the muscle relaxes
and the cycle is repeated.
The goal of electrical muscle stimulation is to achieve contractions
or vibrations in the muscles. Normal muscular activity is controlled
by the central and peripheral nervous systems, which transmit
electrical signals to the muscles. EMS works similarly but uses an
external source (the stimulator) with electrodes attached to the skin
for transmitting electrical impulses into the body. The impulses
stimulate the nerves to send signals to a specifically targeted
muscle, which reacts by contracting, just as it does with normal
muscular activity.
WHAT IS IF?
Interferential Stimulation IF is an anti-inflammatory based treatment
modality. Interferential stimulation is characterized by two
alternating-current sine waves or square waves of differing
frequencies that “work” together to produce an interferential current
that is also known as a beat pulse or alternating modulation
frequency. One of the two currents is usually held at 4,000 Hz, and
the other can be held constant or varied over a range of 4,001 to
4,100 Hz. Because of the frequency, the interferential wave meets
low impedance when crossing the skin to enter deep into soft
tissues. The interferential currents reportedly can stimulate sensory,
motor, and pain fibers. These large impulse fibers interfere with the
transmission of pain messages at the spinal cord level. This deep
tissue penetration stimulates parasympathetic nerve fibers for
increased blood flow and edema reduction. It utilizes the low
electric-current to stimulate muscle nerves to achieve the
symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain, post-traumatic pain,
and post-surgical pain.
6
WHAT IS MICROCURRENT?
Microcurrent stimulation is a type of therapy in which very low
current is sent into the cells of the body. Microcurrent is a very faint
current that is so small it is measured in millionths of an amp
(Microamps). Human cells generate a current that is in the micro
amp range which is why you can’t feel it - the current is so low it
doesn’t stimulate the sensory nerves.
Microcurrent is a physiological electric modality that increases ATP
(energy) production in the cells of your body. This dramatically
increases the tissue’s healing rate. The immediate response to the
correct microcurrent frequency suggests that other mechanisms
are involved as well. The exact effects or changes in the tissue are
unmistakable; scars will often suddenly soften; trigger points often
become less painful within minutes when the “correct” frequency is
applied. In many situations the changes seen seem to be long
lasting and in many cases permanent.

4.4 Electrode
4.4.1 Electrode options
The electrodes are disposable and should be routinely replaced
when they start to lose their adhesive nature. If you are unsure of
your electrodes adhesive properties, order replacement electrodes.
Replacement electrodes should be re-ordered through or on the
advice of your physician to ensure proper quality. Follow application
procedures outlined in electrode packing, to maintain optimal
stimulation and to prevent skin irritation.
4.4.2 Place electrodes on skin
Apply electrodes to the exact site indicated by your physician or
therapist. Before applying electrodes, be sure the skin surface over
which electrodes are placed is thoroughly clean and dry. Make sure
the electrodes are pressed firmly to the skin and make good contact
between the skin and the electrodes. Place the electrodes over the

25
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 location has been achieved,
mark down the electrode sites and the device settings, so the patient
can easily continue treatment.

6. Cleaning and Care
6.1 Tips for skin care
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.
33
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 center
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
the device.
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.
6.3 Electrodes
1) 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.
2) It is recommended that, at minimum, 1.5” x 1.5” self-adhering
electrodes should be used at the treatment area.
3) Inspect your electrodes before every use. Replace electrodes
as needed. Reusable electrodes may cause slight skin irritation,
lose adhesion properties and deliver less stimulation if
overused.
34
To use these electrodes:
1)
2)
3)
Attach the electrode to the lead wire.
Remove the protective backing from the electrode surface.
Do not throw away the protective backing because it is
reused after the treatment session has been completed.
Place the tacky surface to the prescribed skin area by pressing
the electrode firmly against the skin.
To remove your electrodes:
1)
Lift the corner of the electrode and gently remove it from the
skin.
2) It may be helpful to improve repeated application by
spreading a few drops of cold water over the adhesive and
turn the surface up to air dry. Over Saturation with water
will reduce the adhesive properties.
3) Between uses, store the electrodes in the resealable bag in a
cool dry place.
Caution:
1) Do not pull on the electrode wire. Doing so may damage
the wire and electrode.
2) Do not apply to broken skin.
3) The electrodes should be discarded when they are no
longer adhering.
4) The electrodes are intended for single patient use only.
5) If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult your
clinician.
6) Read the instructions for use of self-adhesive electrodes
before application.
35
7) Always use the electrodes with the requirements of the
IEC/EN60601-1, ISO10993-1/-5/-10 and IEC/ EN60601-1-2,
such as with CE mark, or are legally marketed in the US
under 510(K) procedure.
6.4 Cleaning the Electrode's cords
Clean the electrode cords by wiping them with a damp cloth. Coating
them lightly with talcum powder will reduce tangles and prolong the
life.
6.5 Maintenance
1) Maintenance and all repairs should only be carried out by an
authorized agency. The manufacturer will not be held
responsible for the results of maintenance or repairs by
unauthorized persons.
2) The user must not attempt any repairs to the device or
accessories. Please contact the retailer for repair.
3) Opening of the equipment by unauthorized agencies is not
allowed and will terminate any claim to warranty.
4) Check the unit before each use for signs of wear and/or damage.
Replace worn items as required.
