Pro Tips

Body position during treatment

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.

 

Motion during treatment

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 ost 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.

Electrode Placement Examples

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.

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.

Pain Relief Pads MUST NEVER TOUCH EACH OTHER DURING THE TREATMENT

  • 1.0 inch (2.6 cm) is the minimum spacing between Pads.
  • There is NO maximum spacing between any Pads.
  • If the edges of the Pads touch during the treatment,
    it may cause a burn.
  • Pads typically can be reused about 8-10 times.
