Operator Interface
The operator interface conists of a liquid crystal display that has a touch
screen overlay. The operator is able to view parameter options and make a
selection by touching a designated area of the screen. The display will also
provide information about ongoing treatments, such as amplitude and
elapsed time. At the completion of treatment, a summary of the parameters
used will be displayed until the next treatment is initiated or the unit is powered off. Ultrasound and stimulation intensities are adjusted with a rotary
knob. The stimulation output can be stopped by pressing a stop button located
on the touch screen.
Operational steps are as follows:
1. Operator may choose between performing patient treatments (electrical
stimulation or ultrasound) or view educational information on the display
screen. Educational information consists of medical illustrations of major
muscles, bones and nerves. (This anatomical information does not
include electrode placement. Electrode placement is determined by the
operator.) Definitions of electrotherapy terminology and listing of pertinent
screens are also included.

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 Vectra Pro
provides multiple waveforms and a Clinical Protocol mode to help you select
the appropriate waveform and parameter settings.
The three waveforms available in Pain Management therapy include
Interferential, Premodulated and Microcurrent.
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
35
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
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.
Stop icon: Function button always located at the top left corner of the screen
when a treatment session is running. When pressed, it will stop all treatment
sessions.
Save: Function button that allows you to save any parameter modifications
you make to this waveform and store is as a User Protocol.
Help: An online manual to provide you with detailed explanation of the particular screen you are viewing.
Back: Function button that allows you to move back one screen in the software.
Home: Function button to take you directly you the main menu of the Vectra
Pro software.
Amplitude: This displays the level of output set by the user with the amplitude
control knob.
Balance: This controls the percent level of your set amplitude by channel.
If you wish the patient to have a greater level of stimulation intensity focused
in a particular channel press the arrow button below that channel.
36
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
Sweep: Frequency modulation of the Interferential current. Sweep is a function that can be toggled on or off.
Beat Low: When using a sweep mode the frequency varies from one level to
another. Beat Low describes the lowest frequency in that range. For example
using a sweep of 80-150 Hz, 80 Hz is the lowest frequency.
Beat High: When using a sweep mode the frequency varies from one level to
another. Beat High describes the highest frequency in that range. For example
using a sweep of 80-150 Hz, 150 Hz is the highest frequency.
Scan Percentage: Scan Percentage is the percentage of the Interferential
amplitude that will decrease from its maximum level over a 15-second period.
Scan is Amplitude modulation, expressed as a percentage of the amplitude.
The rhythmical varying of the current amplitude of each channel produces the
perceived movement of the Interferential field by the patient.
Treatment Time: The time of your therapy session is set here.
Pause: Function button to temporarily pause a treatment. If you are in an
active treatment session and pause that channel. The word resume will
appear in this box and is the button the user should touch to resume treatment after a pause.
Start: Function button to initiate or start a treatment session.
Printing Treatment Results: The results of a treatment session can be displayed
and printed on any printer that has an IrDA adapter (JetEye) by selecting the
Print button represented as an icon of a printer located on the top of the
Vectra Pro screen.
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
37
Channel: The bottom section of the screen is reserved for channel display.
The Vectra Pro4 will display Channel 1, Channel 2, Channel 3, Channel 4, and
Ultrasound. The Vectra Pro2 will display Channel 1, Channel 2 and
Ultrasound. The individual channel displays have the word Available in them.
This means they are currently unused and available for use. When you select
a waveform the Vectra Pro assigns the channel for you. As you select a waveform, the word available in the channel box changes to Setup, meaning that
that channel is being setup preparing for use. And finally, when you are running the channel on a patient the text in the channel box will display the word
Running. When a treatment session is running the countdown display
becomes a useable button, if you wish to review the parameters of a particular channel during a session you can touch the channel display desired and
you will go directly to the parameter display of that channel.
38
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
Premodulated
Premodulated is a single sine wave that has modulated amplitude. This
waveform is similar to the beat frequency, or pattern created by Interferential
current. In some cases, Premodulated therapy provides a good alternative for
Interferential treatment especially when treating areas of the body where
four electrodes can not be utilized.
Stop icon: Function button always located at the top left corner of the screen
when a treatment session is running. When pressed, it will stop all treatment
sessions.
Save: Function button that allows you to save any parameter modifications
you make to this waveform and store is as a User Protocol.
Help: An online manual to provide you with detailed explanation of the particular screen you are viewing.
Back: Function button that allows you to move back one screen in the software.
Home: Function button to take you directly you the main menu of the Vectra
Pro software.
Amplitude: This displays the level of output set by the user with the amplitude
control knob.
Sweep: Frequency modulation of the Premodulated current. Sweep is a function that can be toggled on or off.
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
39
Beat Low: When using a sweep mode the frequency varies from one level to
another. Beat Low describes the lowest frequency in that range. For example
using a sweep of 80-150 Hz, 80 Hz is the lowest frequency.
Beat High: When using a sweep mode the frequency varies from one level to
another. Beat High describes the highest frequency in that range. For example
using a sweep of 80-150 Hz, 150 Hz is the highest frequency.
Cycle Time: This section provides control over the waveforms Cycle Time and
Ramp. The Cycle Time is the time in seconds of the stimulation on time followed by the rest time or off time. Ramp is the amount of time required for
the amplitude level to be reached at the beginning of a cycle and the amount
of time required to decrease to amplitude to zero at the end of a cycle. The
ramp time is applied to the beginning and end of a contraction. There are
many preset Cycle Times and Ramps to select and the ability to create a user
defined Cycle Time with user defined Ramps.
Treatment Time: The time of your therapy session is set here.
Pause: Function button to temporarily pause a treatment. If you are in an
active treatment session and pause that channel. The word resume will
appear in this box and is the button the user should touch to resume treatment after a pause.
Start: Function button to initiate or start a treatment session.
40
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
Microcurrent
Microcurrent is a monophasic rectangular wave with selectable or alternating
polarity. Many clinicians prefer microcurrent therapy because of the low
amperage utilized with selectable polarity. For long, unattended therapy sessions, electrodes are usually placed on each side of the affected area so
treatment is administered "through" the affected area.
If attended, hands-on therapy is preferred, simply use the microcurrent probe
that comes standard with the Vectra Pro. Microcurrent is available through
channel 1 and 3 on the Pro4 and channel 1 on the Pro2.
Method: You have the option of delivering Microcurrent to the patient either
by electrode or probe application.
Frequency: The number of cycles delivered per second. The number of cycles
per second is expressed in Hertz (Hz). The range of frequency options is .1 to
1000.0 Hz. To change frequency enter your desired frequency in using the
provided numerical keypad.
Polarity: The waveform polarity can be set as either positive or negative or
alternating.
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
41
Muscle Contraction
Four waveforms are available for muscle contraction therapy: Russian, VMS,
VMS Burst and Twin-Peak High Volt. The appropriate selection of a waveform
for relaxing muscle spasms, increasing local circulation, re-educating muscles that have been atrophied from disuse or injury, or to maintain or improve
joint range of motion can be difficult. Vectra provides multiple waveforms to
address these clinical problems and a Clinical Protocol mode that will help
direct you to the appropriate waveform and parameter setting as a starting
point.
42
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
Russian
The Russian current is a 2,500Hz sinusoidal carrier wave, interrupted to create
pulse trains or "bursts." The number of bursts per second is set by the burst
frequency and the length of the bursts is set by the duty cycle.
Channel Mode: Three methods of treatment are available including single
channel application, reciprocal application where you can alternate stimulation
over agonists and antagonists and co-contract where the timing of stimulation can be coordinated through two channels to co-contract agonist and
antagonist or differing sections of a larger muscle group.
Cycle Time: This section provides control over the waveforms Cycle Time and
Ramp. The Cycle Time is the time in seconds of the stimulation on time followed by the rest time or off time. Ramp is the amount of time required for
the amplitude level to be reached at the beginning of a cycle and the amount
of time required to decrease to amplitude to zero at the end of a cycle. The
ramp time is applied to the beginning and end of a contraction. There are
many preset Cycle Times and Ramps.
Burst Frequency: The number of bursts per second of the waveform.
Duty Cycle: The ratio of on time to total time of bursts. Duty cycle is expressed
as a percentage.
Anti-Fatigue™ Mode: This mode begins the first contraction with a frequency
of 60 Hz, decreasing 5 Hz with successive contractions, until a minimum of
25 Hz is obtained. It will remain at that level until treatment time expires.

and the physical effects of the parameter alterations you make. This graphic
is very helpful when this waveform is used in a reciprocal or co-contract format.
44
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
VMS™
VMS is a symmetrical biphasic square waveform with an inter-phase interval
that treats the tissue under each electrode equally. Its single pulses have the
same physiologic function as the beat frequency of the Interferential waveform.
Low total current makes this waveform good for comfortable sub-maximal
muscle contractions.
Channel Mode: Three methods of treatment are available including single
channel application, reciprocal application where you can alternate stimulation
over agonists and antagonists and co-contract where the timing of stimulation can be coordinated through two channels to co-contract agonist and
antagonist or differing sections of a larger muscle group.
Cycle Time: This section provides control over the waveforms Cycle Time and
Ramp. The Cycle Time is the time in seconds of the stimulation on time followed by the rest time or off time. Ramp is the rate of time to set amplitude
levels at the beginning and end of the stimulation on cycle. The ramp time is

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 Pro4 and channel 2 on the Pro2.
Method: You have the option of delivering High Volt to the patient either by
electrode or probe application.
Polarity: The polarity of the active electrode can be changed from Positive
(default) to Negative by pressing the Polarity 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.
Cycle Time: This section provides control over the waveforms Cycle Time and
Ramp. The Cycle Time is the time in seconds of the stimulation on time followed by the rest time or off time. Ramp is the amount of time required for
the amplitude level to be reached at the beginning of a cycle and the amount
of time required to decrease to amplitude to zero at the end of a cycle. The
ramp time is applied to the beginning and end of a contraction. There are
many preset Cycle Times and Ramps.
Sweep: Frequency modulation of the High Volt current. Sweep is a function
that can be toggled on or off.

VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
Ultrasound/Combination
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.
Frequency: Ultrasound frequency is measured in cycles per second and
expressed in megahertz. At 1.0 megahertz, there are 1 million cycles per second. At 3 megahertz, there are 3 million cycles per second. Frequency of
Ultrasound determines the depth of penetration. One megahertz penetrates
approximately 5 centimeters, and 3 megahertz penetrates to 2 centimeters.
Both 1 and 3.3 megahertz frequencies are available on your Vectra Pro and
can be toggled on and off throughout the course of treatment.
Duty Cycle: Continuous and pulsed duty cycles are available in 10% increments from 10% to 100%.
Display: Ultrasound output can be displayed in Watts, or Watts Per Centimeter
Squared.
Head Warming is a unique feature of the Vectra Pro that allows the aluminum
surface of the Ultrasound applicator to warm up to room temperature,
enhancing patient comfort.
Treatment Time: The time of your therapy session is set here.
VECTRAUSERMANUAL–PRO4ANDPRO2
51
Combination Therapy
In the Combination mode, ultrasound therapy is combined with one of several
waveforms 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 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 the
reduction of muscle spasm. Combination mode is limited to channel 2 of
both the Vectra Pro4 and Pro2.
