instructions. Know the limitations and hazards associated with
using any electrical stimulation or ultrasound device. Observe the
precautionary and operational decals placed on the unit.
DO NOT operate this unit in an environment where other devices
are being used that intentionally radiate electromagnetic energy in
an unshielded manner.
Ultrasound should be routinely checked before each use to
determine that all controls function normally, especially that
the intensity control does properly adjust the intensity of the
ultrasonic power output in a stable manner. Also, determine that
the treatment time control does actually terminate ultrasonic power
output when the timer reaches zero.
DO NOT use sharp objects such as a pencil point or ballpoint pen to
operate the buttons on the control panel.
This unit should be operated, transported and stored in
temperatures between 59° F and 104° F (15° C and 40° C), with
Relative Humidity ranging from 30%-60%.
Handle Ultrasound Applicator with care. Inappropriate handling of
the Ultrasound Applicator may adversely affect its characteristics.
Before each use, inspect Ultrasound Applicator for cracks, which
may allow the ingress of conductive fluid.
• The Vectra Genisys Therapy System is not designed to prevent the

ingress of water or liquids. Ingress of water or liquids could cause
malfunction of internal components of the system and therefore
create a risk of injury to the patient.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to other devices in
the vicinity. However, there is no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular installation. Harmful interference to other
devices can be determined by turning this equipment on and off.
Try to correct the interference using one or more of the following:
reorient or relocate the receiving device, increase the separation
between the equipment, connect the equipment to an outlet on a
different circuit from that to which the other device(s) are connected
and consult the factory field service technician for help.
Nylatex® Wraps contain dry natural rubber and may cause allergic
reactions in patients with allergies to latex.
Use of parts or materials other than Chattanooga Group's can
degrade minimum safety.

• 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
arrhythmia.
Stimulation should not be applied over swollen, infected, and
inflamed areas or skin eruptions, e.g., phlebitis, thrombophlebitis,
varicose veins, etc.
Stimulation should not be applied over, or in proximity to, cancerous
lesions.
Output current density is related to electrode size. Improper
application may result in patient injury. If any question arises as to
the proper electrode size, consult a licensed practitioner prior to

may cause a cardiac arrhythmia.
• 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.”
• Handle, clean and dispose of components and accessories
that have come in contact with bodily fluids according
to National, Local and Facility rules, regulations and
procedures.

IFC- Interferential (Traditional 4 Pole)
TENS- Asymmetrical Biphasic
Interferential Current is a medium frequency waveform. Current is
distributed through two channels (four electrodes). The currents
cross each other in the body at the area requiring treatment.
The two currents interfere with each other at this crossing point,
resulting in a modulation of the intensity (the current intensity
increases and decreases at a regular frequency).

The Asymmetrical Biphasic waveform has a short pulse duration.
It is capable of strong stimulation of the nerve fibers in the skin
as well as of muscle tissue. This waveform is often used in TENS

General Information
The Vectra Genisys sEMG modality reads and records the sEMG biofeedback activity of a muscle or muscle group by sensing the electrical
impulses generated during a voluntary muscle contraction and relax cycle. These signals are accurately relayed to the Vectra Genisys
Therapy System through 1.25 in (3 cm) DURA-STICK™ II Disposable Electrodes.
sEMG can be beneficial to muscle retraining therapy by setting target values and charting the patient progress in reaching those goals in a
specific muscle or muscle group.
Within this section, general set up procedures of the various parameters of sEMG are explained. Also, set up and use of the optional sEMG
Data Card for recording sEMG Data are demonstrated.
NOTE: This section applies only to models capable of supporting the functions of the sEMG module.
Optional Patient Data Management System (PDMS)
The sEMG data can be recorded onto the optional
sEMG Data Card and viewed in graph form via the
optional Patient Data Management System connected
to a Windows® PC. This allows the clinician to record
session activity, as well as see progress the patient
may be making through therapy, saving the data and
printing patient graphs and reports.

General Information
The Vectra Genisys sEMG + Stim modality utilizes sEMG biofeedback activity coupled with triggered electrical muscle stimulation using
selected electrotherapy waveforms for the maximum benefit in muscle retraining. The sEMG + Stim will not function as a multi-channel
modality. It is designed for single channel use only. However, it is available to all electrotherapy channels.
The Electrical Muscle Stimulation is triggered when the muscle contraction (sEMG portion of the therapy) reaches the target. sEMG stops
and the muscle is then electrically stimulated for a period. After stimulation, the patient is given a short rest period and then repeats the
muscle contraction, attempting to reach the target to again trigger the electrical stimulation. This is repeated throughout the therapy
session.
Session parameters can be stored on a Patient Data Card. The Patient Data Card can be used with the optional Patient Data Management
System for adding session notes and printing reports. Several sessions can be stored on a Patient Data Card. Any of the sessions stored on
the Patient Data Card can be recalled in the Therapy System for future use.
It is recommended that each patient be assigned a Patient Data Card. Refer to the Vectra Genisys User Manual for Patient Data Card set up
and use instructions.
The sEMG portion of sEMG + Stim modality is used to force the patient to contract the muscle to a prescribed target. The data cannot be
recorded or stored on the Patient Data Card or the sEMG Data Card.
NOTE: This section applies only to models capable of supporting the functions of the sEMG module.

INSTALLATION CHANNEL 3/4 ELECTROTHERAPY, NiMH BATTERY, AND LASER MODULE
Possible System Configurations
The Vectra Genisys Electrotherapy and Combination Systems allow installation of optional modality modules, by the user. Specifically
designed for use with the Vectra Genisys Therapy Systems, these modules configure the Therapy System to meet virtually every therapeutic
need that a clinician may have. The following is a list of possible configurations of the Vectra Genisys Therapy System.
• Four Channel Electrotherapy or Combination System: Install the Channel 3/4 Electrotherapy Module to the Two (2) Channel Electrotherapy
or Combination System.
• Two Channel Electrotherapy or Combination System with Laser: Install the Laser Module to the Two (2) Channel Electrotherapy or
Combination System. Vectra Genisys Laser Applicators are sold separately.
• Two or Four Channel Electrotherapy or Combination System with sEMG and sEMG + Electrical Stimulation: Install the sEMG Module(s)
onto the System or the Channel 3/4 Electrotherapy Module, if equipped. This allows the System to have the potential of sEMG and
sEMG + Electrical Stimulation available on two channels (1 and 2 or 3 and 4). The Vectra Genisys Therapy System is equipped with a factory
installed sEMG Module.
NOTE: The sEMG Module cannot be installed onto the Battery or Laser Module. It can only be installed onto the Two Channel System or
the Channel 3/4 Electrotherapy Module.
• Battery Powered Two Channel Electrotherapy or Combination System with sEMG and sEMG + Electrical Stimulation: Install the NiMH
Battery Module. The sEMG Module is factory installed on Vectra Genisys Therapy Systems.
NOTE: The Battery Module cannot be installed on a Four Channel System or a system with the Laser Module installed. The Channel 3/4
Electrotherapy or Laser Module must first be removed.
The Channel 3/4 Electrotherapy, NiMH Battery and sEMG Optional Modules are shipped with all necessary lead wires and accessories in order
to complete the installation and allow immediate use by a physician or licensed practitioner. The Laser Module requires separate purchase
of a Vectra Genisys Laser Applicator before the Laser Module will function.
No special tools or equipment are required for optional Module installation. The System is programmed to automatically recognize the new
Module(s), therefore, no software installation is required.
This section explains user installation procedures for the following modules: Channel 3/4 Electrotherapy Module, NiMH Battery Module, and
sEMG Module.

CHARGING BATTERY MODULE
Use the following instructions to properly
charge the Genisys Battery Module for use.
When to Recharge
Charging of the Battery Module is required
when the Battery Indicator begins flashing.
When charging Battery Module, make
certain the System is electrically grounded
by connecting only to a grounded
electrical service receptacle conforming to
the applicable national and local electrical
codes. Using any other power source
will cause extensive damage to internal
components and render the System
unsafe for patient therapy.
With Battery Module installed on the Vectra
Genisys Therapy System, plug the System
into an approved, grounded power outlet.
Turn the System on. The Lightning Bolt
icon will display indicating the battery
is charging. As the battery charges, the
Battery indicator icon will progressively fill
until it is solid black indicating full charge.
BATTERY
INDICATOR
ICON
LIGHTNING
BOLT ICON
NOTE: The Lightening Bolt icon will
continue to display as long as
the System is connected to
a power source.
• Charge the battery according to the
instructions found in this manual.
Never attempt to charge the battery
on any other charging mechanism.
• Use the Battery Module only with the
Vectra Genisys Therapy System.
• Do not reverse the polarity of the
Battery Module. Doing so can increase
the individual cell temperature and
cause cell rupture or leakage.
138
Charging Temperature
• Charging efficiency is optimum within a
temperature range of 50 °F to 86 °F (10
°C to 30 °C). Charge the Battery Module
within this temperature range.
• At temperatures below 32 °F (0 °C) the
gas absorption reaction is not sufficient
and causes an increase of the gas
pressure inside the battery. This condition
can activate the safety vent and lead
to alkaline gas leaking and battery
performance deterioration.
• Charging efficiency of the Battery Module
drops at temperatures above 104 °F
(40 °C) and can disrupt full charging,
lead to deterioration in performance and
battery cell leakage.
OPTION OPERATION
Vectra Genisys® Therapy System
BATTERY MODULE SERVICE LIFE
Since NiMH Batteries are designed for multiple cycles of charging
and discharging, the expected cycle life of the Battery Module is
at minimum 500 cycles utilizing proper discharging and charging
procedures.
When the service time (use time between charges) of the
Battery Module is significantly reduced, the service life of the
Battery Module is exceeded and should be replaced with a new
Chattanooga Group Battery Module.
Never attempt to rebuild the Battery Module.
Properly dispose of old Battery Module.
STORAGE OF BATTERY MODULE
Short Term Storage
The Battery Module should be operated, transported and stored
in temperatures between 59° F and 104° F (15° C and 40° C), with
Relative Humidity ranging from 30%-60%.
Long Term Storage
For long term storage of the Battery Module, remove the Battery
Module from the System and store in temperatures between
59° F and 104° F (15° C and 40° C), with Relative Humidity ranging
from 30%-60%.
When charging the Battery Module for the first time after long
term storage, restore the battery service life by charging and
discharging the Battery Module several times.
If storing the Battery Module for periods longer than one
year, charge the Battery Module at least once per year to
prevent performance deterioration and battery leakage due to
self-discharge from storage.
• NiMH Batteries contain Class E Corrosive materials. In the
event of battery cell rupture or leakage, handle Battery
Module wearing neoprene or natural rubber gloves. Contents
of a ruptured or leaking battery can cause respiratory
irritation. Hypersensitivity to nickel can cause allergic
pulmonary asthma. Contents of cell coming in contact with
skin can cause skin irritation and/or chemical burns.
• Never, under any circumstances, open the Battery Module
housing or cells. Should an individual cell from a battery
become disassembled, spontaneous combustion of the
negative electrode is possible. There can be a delay between
exposure to air and spontaneous combustion.
• Dispose of NiMH batteries according to national, state and
local codes and regulations.

soap. If a more sterile cleaning is needed, use a cloth moistened with an
antimicrobial cleaner.
Do not submerse the system in liquids. Should the unit accidentally
become submersed, contact the dealer or Chattanooga Group Service
Department immediately. Do not attempt to use a system that has been
wet inside until inspected and tested by a Service Technician Certified by
Chattanooga Group.
Do not allow liquids to enter the ventilation holes in the optional modules.
This could permanently damage the modules.
