Pain Management
The management of post-traumatic, post-operative or chronic intractable pain associated
with many areas of the body can be a difficult task. The Intelect® Legend Combo provides
multiple waveforms and many parameter settings to manage pain.
Two waveforms are available for Pain Management therapy: Interferential and Premodulated.
Interferential
The Interferential waveform consists of two channels, each with a sinusoidal waveform;
one of fixed frequency and one of variable frequency.
When the four electrodes are positioned so that the two channels cross each other, the
two waveforms mix within the tissue to produce a train of pulses whose frequencies and
amplitude are dependent on the sweep mode, beat frequency and amplitude settings,
respectively. Press the Interferential button to select this waveform.
Ch. Select
Ch. Select controls the method for setting amplitude. The Both Channels mode changes
intensity equally. The Channel 1 option changes ONLY channel one and the Channel 2
option ONLY changes channel two. This is helpful when you need to balance the output
between channels.
When you highlight Amplitude Modulation and press the ENTER button, 3 options are displayed.
They are 40% Scan (default), 100% Scan and Static (no scan).
Scan Percentage is the percentage of decrease from the maximum amplitude. Scan is
amplitude modulation, expressed as a percentage of the amplitude. The rhythmical varying
of the amplitude of each channel produces the perceived
movement of the Interferential field.

Muscle Contraction
Two waveforms are available for muscle contraction therapy; Twin-Peak High Volt and Russian. The appropriate selection
of a waveform for relaxing muscle spasms, increasing local circulation, re-educating muscles that have atrophied from
disuse or injury, or to maintain or improve joint range of motion can be difficult. The Intelect® Legend Combo provides
multiple waveforms to address these clinical problems.
High Volt
High Volt stimulation has output ranges between 300 and 500 volts. True
Twin-Peak High Volt is designed to deliver very short-duration pulses, which are
very low in pulse charge. High Volt is available through channel 2 and 4 on the
model 4C and channel 2 on the model 2C.
Method gives you the option of delivering High Volt to the patient either by Pads
(default) or Probe application.
Polarity of the active electrode can be changed from Positive (default) to Negative
by selecting POLARITY and pressing the ENTER button. When Positive (default)
polarity is selected, the Red leadwire is positive polarity and the Black leadwire is
negative polarity. IF YOU SELECT NEGATIVE POLARITY, the Red leadwire
becomes negative polarity and the Black leadwire becomes positive polarity.
Method
Cycle Time parameter controls the on/off cycle time of the current. There are 7
available options: 5/5, 10/10, 10/20, 4/12, 10/30, 10/50 and Continuous (default).
Sweep is frequency modulation of the High Volt current. When you select SWEEP and press the ENTER button, 4 options are
displayed. They are Continuous (default at 100 pps), 1-10 Hz, 80-150 Hz and 1-150 Hz. The Continuous option allows you
to select a continuous fixed frequency from 1-120 pps.
18
INTELECT LEGEND COMBO
Frequency is the number of pulses per second of the waveform. To change the Frequency select
FREQUENCY and press ENTER, then use the UP or DOWN arrows to change the frequency, from 1-120 pps.
Ramp controls the amount of time required to bring the stimulation up to the selected amplitude.
When you select RAMP and press ENTER, 4 options are displayed. They are 0.5 seconds, 1 second,
2 seconds (default) and 5 seconds.
Display provides two options of viewing output. The options are Voltage (default) and Peak
Current. The ability to assess peak current can help determine tissue response, and an
indication of impedance to current at the electrode skin interface.
Russian
The Russian current is a 2,500 Hz sinusoidal carrier wave, interrupted to create pulse trains
or "bursts." The number of bursts per second is determined by the burst frequency and the
length of the bursts is determined by the duty cycle.
Ramp
Mode provides three methods of treatment including Single channel application, Reciprocal
application where stimulation alternates between agonists and antagonists and Co-Contract
where the timing of stimulation can be coordinated through two channels to simultaneously
co-contract agonist and antagonist or differing sections of a larger muscle group.
Cycle Time parameter controls the on/off cycle time of the current. There are 7 available options:
5/5, 10/10, 10/20, 4/12, 10/30, 10/50 (default) and Continuous.
The Burst Frequency is the number of bursts per second (bps) and the available range is 20 bps to 100 bps.
Ramp controls the amount of time required to bring the stimulation up to the selected amplitude.
When you press the Ramp button it will toggle between .5 seconds, 1 second, 2 seconds
(default) and 5 seconds.
Mode
Duty Cycle is the ratio of on time to total time of the burst and is expressed as a percentage.

Contraindications
• This device should not be used for symptomatic local pain relief unless etiology is established or unless a pain syndrome has
been diagnosed.
• This device should not be used when cancerous lesions are present in the treatment area.
• This device should not be used when open wounds are present in the treatment area.
• Other contraindications are patients suspected of carrying serious infectious disease and or disease where it is advisable,
for general medical purposes, to suppress heat or fevers.
• This device should not be used over or near bone growth centers until bone growth is complete.
• This device should not be used over the thoracic area if the patient is using a cardiac pacemaker.
• This device should not be used over a healing fracture.
• This device should not be used over or applied to the eye.
• This device should not be used over a pregnant uterus.
• This device should not be used on ischemic tissues in individuals with vascular disease where the blood supply would be unable
to follow the increase in metabolic demand and tissue necrosis might result.
• Patients with an implanted neurostimulation device must not be treated with or be in close proximity to any shortwave diathermy, microwave
diathermy, therapeutic ultrasound diathermy or laser diathermy anywhere on their body. Energy from diathermy (shortwave, microwave,
ultrasound and laser) can be transferred through the implanted neurostimulation system, can cause tissue damage and can result in severe injury
or death. Injury, damage or death can occur during diathermy therapy even if the implanted neurostimulation system is turned "off."

Ultrasound
Ultrasound is a form of mechanical energy that consists of high frequency vibrations
delivered to the body by means of an ultrasound beam emitted out of an applicator. These
high frequency vibrations pass through the tissues of the body and are gradually absorbed
and transformed into heat.
This temperature increase triggers biological changes to occur in tissues for the relief of
pain, relaxation of muscle spasms and reduction of joint contractures. The ultrasound
frequency, duty cycle and level of intensity can all be adjusted to
produce the desired therapeutic effect.
Head Warming is a unique feature of the Intelect® Legend Combo that allows the aluminum
surface of the Ultrasound applicator to warm up to room temperature, enhancing patient
comfort. Select HEAD WARM and press ENTER to change this option.
Frequency
Frequency of ultrasound determines the depth of penetration. One megahertz penetrates
approximately 2 inches, and 3 megahertz penetrates to .6 inches. Both 1 and 3.3 MHz
frequencies are available and can be changed throughout the course of treatment by
selecting FREQUENCY and pressing ENTER.
Duty Cycle is the ratio of on time to total time of the ultrasound and is expressed as a
percentage. The options are 10%, 20%, 50% and 100% (Continuous-default). Select DUTY
CYCLE, press ENTER, select option and press ENTER.
Display shows ultrasound output in Watts, or Watts Per Square Centimeter. Select DISPLAY
and press ENTER to change option.

Combination Therapy
In the Combination mode, ultrasound therapy is combined with Interferential, Premodulated or High Volt (default) to
generate a therapeutic effect. In this mode of therapy the aluminum face of the ultrasound applicator becomes one half
of the electrical circuit. An electrode attached to the Red lead wire marked “2” completes the circuit.
The benefits of ultrasound as expressed in the ultrasound section are coupled with electrical stimulation; a typical application
of combination therapy is for the reduction of muscle spasm. Combination mode is limited to channel 2.
