BioWaveGO electrode placements are different from conventional electrical stimulation. The mixing of the patented therapeutic signals occurs in a 3.5-inch hemishpere, not along the surface of the skin between the electrodes. As a result, electrodes need to be placed directly over locations of pain, or one electrode over a single location of pain and a second over a comfortable location to recieve stimulation – typically over a bony prominence near the treatment site.
The BioWaveGO Pain Therapy System can be used with 2 different sized sets of BioWave Noninvasive Electrodes to focus the active electrical fields to different parts of the body:
1. B-Sets 2. E-Sets
The B-Set is used for treating pain in the following areas
Position of the body during treatment is important. Generally, the tissue being treated should be a little taut or in a stretch position. Generally, sitting in a supported position in a chair, couch, or bed is best for most treatment locations on the body. See User’s Manual for more detailed information on optimal Body Position for different treatment locations.
The sensation from the treatment is a deep smooth tingling and pressure sensation as the muscle is held in tension in the volume of tissue being treated. Motion may cause a stonger or weaker sensation and will cause the location of the internal electrical field to shift slightly. Shifting of the electrical field is most prevalent when treating the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, fingers, and feet.
The goal is to gently move the joint at the location to shift the sensation caused by the electrical field so that it focuses directly onto and encompasses the primary location of pain. This is a fine tuning of the treatment that will provide the best treatment results.
BioWaveGO pad placements are different from TENS and other conventional electrical stimulation. The BioWave active electrical field forms beneath and surrounding each pad. As a result, pads need to be placed directly over specific locations of pain.
Neck or cervical pain in two locations
Bilateral neck or cervical pain
Neck or cervical pain in multiple discs
Temporomandibular Joint Pain or Pain Along Trigeminal Nerve
Shoulder pain in two locations or Frozen Shoulder
Pain at top or throughout shoulder (e.g. AC Sprain or Frozen Shoulder)
Pain in edge of shoulder (e.g. Rotator Cuff Tendinitis)
Pain in front of shoulder (e.g. Biceps Tendinitis)
Pain in back of shoulder (e.g. Infraspinatus Strain)
Trapezius pain in one location (e.g. Trigger Point)
Trap pain in 2 locations (e.g. Bilateral Trapezius pain)
