Troubleshooting
If the unit is turned on and the lights flash orange, please make sure that the leadwire cable is firmly plugged into the BioWaveGO unit and into the pain relief pads, and that the pain relief pads have good adhesion to clean skin.

Directions for Use

Do not turn on unit until Step 6

5.

Lift the pads off their plastic guards (do not pull the wire) and apply them to the skin, ensuring they are stuck down. With experience you can position the pads to meet your needs, but we suggest: One pad over the pain the other nearby or both pads over two sources of pain (at least two fingers apart – they must not touch). Pads may be placed directly over or in the proximity of implanted metal hardware including total joint replacements, rods, plates, screws, anchors and pins.

If the LED bars flash orange and the unit beeps, check:

  • the lead wire is plugged in.
  • the pad wire is not disconnected or detached from the pad.
  • the pad is fully stuck down to the skin (after 8-10 uses they start to lose their stickiness).

Pain Relief Pad Placement

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.

AREAS OF TREATMENT

1. TWO LOCATIONS OF PAIN – 
    each pad should be placed directly
    over a painful area.

2. ONE LOCATION OF PAIN –
    one pad is placed directly over a
    single location of pain; the second pad
    is placed over a bony area which is a
    comfortable location to receive
    stimulation.

3. Pads must not touch each other when
    the unit is turned on – one inch is the
    minimum spacing.

4. Pads are reusable but must be tacky
    to the touch. If not, please use a new
    set of pads.

5. Pads can typically be reused 8-10 times.

  1. TWO LOCATIONS OF PAIN –
