Electro Magnetic Compatibility
• Medical electrical equipment requires special precautions • •
for Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC). Follow the instructions for the installation of the equipment. See §2. Do not use mobile telephones or other radio, shortwave, or microwave equipment in the vicinity of the equipment. This kind of equipment can cause disturbances. Only use the accessories that are specified by GymnaUniphy. See §7. Other accessories can lead to an increased emission or a reduced immunity.
• Do not use the equipment simultaneously with high • •
• • • •
frequency surgical equipment. This combination can cause burning of the skin under the electrodes. Patients with electrical implants (e.g. a pacemaker) may only be treated after obtaining specialist medical opinion. Do not use adhesive electrodes with currents that have a galvanic component, such as galvanic, diadynamic, MF rectangular, pulsed rectangular and triangular currents. With these currents, etching of the skin can occur. Application of electrodes near the thorax may increase the risk of cardiac fibrillation. Check the electrode cables and the electrodes at least once a month. Check whether the insulation is still intact. Check the conductivity of rubber electrodes at least once a a week. See §4.10.4. The safety standards for electrical stimulation advise not to exceed the current density of 2.0 mArms/cm2. However, with iontophoresis treatments, we advise a maximum current density of 0.25 mÂ/cm2, because of using the MF rectangular current. Exceeding this value can result in skin irritation and burns. Always use sterilised gauze with iontophoresis treatments.
• Move the US head evenly over the skin during the treatment. This prevents internal burns.
• The US treatment heads are exchangeable. The device • •
detects the characteristics and supplies the right power at the right frequency. Handle the US heads carefully. With rough handling, the characteristics can change. Test the US head if it falls on the ground or knocks against something. See §5.1.2. Check the US head at least once a month. During the check, look for dents, cracks and other damage that could allow liquids to ingress. Check whether the insulation of the cable is still intact. Check whether all pins are present and straight in the connectors. Replace the US head if the head, the cable or the connector is damaged. See §5.1.
The laser is a class 3B laser product which emits invisible infrared light.
• Make sure the laser warning sign is clearly visible outside the entrance to the therapy room.
• The radiation of a laser probe can cause a physiological effect.
• Use the laser therapy only for therapeutic purposes. • Use of controls or adjustments or performance of •
• • • • • •
procedures other then those specified in this manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Start a laser therapy only when all persons in the room wear laser goggles for eye protection. If you do not obey this warning, you can cause blindness. Use goggles with at least the characteristics: I 100 - 1000 L2 and with a clear view of the control, the display and the signal lights. See §7.5. Do not look into the laser beam during a laser therapy. Do not point the laser beam into eyes. Do not use the laser near flammable materials or liquids. Do not use the equipment if any damage shows. Regulary check the output of the laser probe with the test facility. See §4.10.8. Check the laser probe at least once a month. During the check, look for dents, cracks and other damage. Check whether the insulation of the cable is still intact. Check whether all pins are present and straight in the connectors. Replace the laser probe if the laser, the cable or the connector is damaged. See §5.1. Place the laser probe in the holder when the laser is not used. Lock the laser function when the laser therapy is not used.
• Check the electrode cables and the electrodes at least • • •
once a month. Check whether the insulation is still intact. See §5.1 Always use slightly salinated demineralized water to moisturize the vacuum sponges to prevent lime deposits in the watertank, hoses, cups and sponges. Use only moisten sponges. Too dry sponges can cause burning of the skin under the electrodes. Do not use vacuum electrodes with DC currents. The DC currents cause damage to the vacuum cups by ionization.

Do not use adhesive electrodes with currents that have a galvanic component, such as galvanic, diadynamic, MF rectangular, pulsed rectangular and triangular currents. These currents can cause skin etching.
Perform electro therapy with vaginal, anal or rectal stimulation probe
• Considering the very personal and intimate character of •
these treatments, a probe may only be used for one patient. Never disinfect the probes in an autoclave. The probes can be damaged by the extreme temperature.
1. Clean the probe with a medical tissue, such as Sternosept. Rinse with clear water and dry with a clean towel. Do not immerse the probe. 2. Select the desired electro therapy program. 3. Connect the probe to the 400Series.

Repeat this check regularly during the treatment. 7. The equipment stops the treatment and indicates that the treatment is completed. Remove the stimulation probe. 8. Clean the stimulation probe. See §5.2.6.
Electro therapy with sequential steps
A treatment with sequential steps consists of a succession of the same current form, but additional with different parameter settings. Advantages • You can distinguish between different phases in a treatment, for example preparation, core effect and cooling.
400-Series Set new intensity between sequential steps The intensity determines the peak value during the treatment. When changing to a following step, the intensity is retained if safety allows. Sometimes, it is necessary to increase the intensity for the following step. If the intensity cannot be maintained for safety reasons, the intensity returns to zero. In this case, the treatment is stopped. You must now set the intensity again. Setting a treatment with sequential steps 1. Select a sequential program. The Step time and the step parameters are directly related to the momentary selected sequential step number. 2. If desired, readjust the individual step time. Via step parameters you can have a more detailed look (in read-only mode) to the individual current form settings of the selected sequential step. 3. Rotate intensity knob A or B to start the treatment and to set the desired intensity. Skip step in treatment 1. Press to temporarily interrupt the treatment. 2. Select Seq. step nr. and select the desired step. 3. Rotate intensity knob A or B to continue the treatment again and to set the desired intensity.
With iontophoresis, medicines are administered to the body as electrically charged particles (ions) by means of a direct current. To do this, a direct current is used.
400-Series 1. Apply the medicine on a sterile gauze. See §8.1. 2. Place the gauze on the electrode. Make sure that the polarity corresponds with the medicament used. 3. Place the electrodes. 4. Select an Iontophoresis program. 5. Set the intensity between 0.1 and 0.2 mÂ/cm2. The intensity depends on the surface area of the electrodes. With electrodes of 6 x 8 cm (=48 cm2), the current setting must be between 4.8 and 12 mÂ.
To prevent etching or burns, never exceed 0.2 mÂ/cm2.
Use of vacuum suction cups
If the vacuum module is available the controls for it appear in the menu. Channel A or B can be selected separately to use normal electrodes or suction cups. Even if only one channel uses suction cups, all four of them must be connected to the vacuum module. The cups have automatic valves shutting them off when they are hanging free. Otherwise the vacuum pump would run continuously and deeper vacuum levels can not be reached. See §4.11. for detailed vacuum information.
Progress of current With NMES currents, the progress of the current is graphically displayed. This gives a clear insight into the phase in which the current is at that moment. In this way, you can optimally guide the patient during the execution of the exercise.
Performing ultrasound therapy
1. Connect the US head into one of the two connectors of the 400Series. You can connect two different US heads, but only one US head can be in operation at one time. The device detects which type of US head is connected to the connector. 2. Select the desired ultrasound therapy. 3. Apply contact gel to the skin to be treated and to the US head. 4. Place the head on the skin. 5. Rotate intensity knob A or B to start the ultrasound therapy. 6. Move the US head evenly over the skin during the treatment. This prevents internal burns. 7. Check the patient's reaction and the effect of the treatment. Repeat this check regularly during the treatment. 8. The equipment stops the treatment and indicates that the treatment is completed.
Phonophoresis is used to enhance transdermal transport of several drugs, especially anti-inflammatory NSAID and local anestetics. 1. Use the medicines (gel ointment) instead of the US contact gel. 2. Select Objectives or the direct therapy key . 3. If desired, change the default parameters.

The 'Directive on Medical Devices' from the European Commission (93/ 42/EEG) requires that safe devices are used. It is recommended to perform a yearly technical safety inspection. If the legislation in your country or your insurer prescribes a shorter period, you must adhere to this shorter period.
• Only a technician authorised by GymnaUniphy N.V. may open the equipment or the accessories.
• The inspection may only be performed by a suitably
qualified person. In some countries this means that the person must be accredited.
Inspection points The technical safety inspection contains the following tests: 1. Test 1: General: Visual inspection and check on the operating functions 2. Test 2: Electro therapy 3. Test 3: Ultrasound therapy 4. Test 4: Laser therapy 5. Test 5: Electrical safety inspection: measurement of the earth leakage current and patient leakage current according to DIN/VDE 0751-1 ed. 2.0. 62
400-Series Inspection result 1. A registration must be maintained of the technical safety inspections. Use the inspection report in the appendix for this purpose. See §8.5.. 2. Copy this appendix. 3. Complete the copied appendix. 4. Keep the inspection reports for at least 10 years. The inspection is successful if all inspection items are passed. Repair all faults on the equipment before the equipment is put back into operation. By comparing the registered measurement values with previous measurements, a possible slowly-deteriorating deviation can be ascertained.

400-Series Guidance and manufacturer’s declaration - electromagnetic immunity The 400-Series devices are intended for use in the electromagnetic environment specified below. The customer or the user of a 400-Series device should assure that it is used in such an environment. Immunity IEC 60601 Compliance level Electromagnetic environment test test level guidance NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies. NOTE 2 The guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection from structures, objects and people. a. Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey can be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which a 400-series device is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the 400-series devices should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the 400-series device. b. Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths must be less than 10 V/ m.
Recommended separation distances between portable and mobile RF communications equipment and the 400-series device The 400-Series device is intended for use in the electromagnetic environment in which radiated RF disturbances are controlled. The customer or the user of a 400-Series device can help prevent electromagnetic interference by maintaining a minimum distance between portable and mobile RF communications equipment (transmitters) and the 400-Series devices as recommended below, according to the maximum output power of the communications equipment. Rated maximum output power of transmitter W
Separation distance according to frequency of transmitter m 150 kHz to 80 MHz d = 0,35√P

active trigger point: A point that, with stimulation (pressure, stretch or electrical pulse), besides the local pain also generates a projected pain in the area that the patient is complaining about. antalgic: The pain is reducing. atrophy: Deterioration in the nourishment state of organs. As a result, the organs become smaller or shrink. chronaxie: The time threshold that is required for a muscle contraction or a sensory impression, after the occurrence of the necessary minimum required stimulation. denervation: Switching-off or weakening of the innervation (paralysis). durability: Being able to frequently repeat a muscle contraction. epithelisation: Recovery of the epithelium over the bottom of the wound. A unidirectional current can stimulate the epithelisation. Epithelisation can also be activated by an external electrical stimulation. explosive muscle power: The highest tension that a muscle can produce in the shortest possible time.
400-Series HAC®: Hospital Antiseptic Concentrate (0,5% chlorhexidine, 0,5% cetrimide). hyperalgesia: An increased sensitiveness for pain. Apply a modified dosage in the case of acute hyperalgesia. injury current: A small unidirectional current between the epidermis and the corium, which occurs after a wound. This current activates the recovery process. With a slow recovery process, an external unidirectional current can be applied to realise the same effect. innervation: The effect of the nerves on the working of the muscles or glands. iontophoresis: The flow of ions through a tissue by means of a galvanic current. isometric contraction: A muscle contraction whereby the length of the muscle remains constant. The external resistance of the muscle must be at least as large as the power that is generated by the contraction. Under isometric circumstances, especially the tension in the muscle increases and muscle cramp is avoided. loadability: The (maximum) load that can be carried. loss of muscle tone: The state of tension of muscles reduces. Myofascial Trigger Point (MTP): A trigger point that is located in the myofascial tissue. The MTP is located in a hard cord of a muscle. The MTPs can be localised with Pain points in the Diagnostics. Neuro Muscular Electro Stimulation (NMES): Contraction of an innervated muscle or muscle group by means of low or medium frequency electrostimulation. The purpose of NMES is to improve or maintain the movement. pain threshold: The lowest level of stimulation that causes pain. pain tolerance threshold: The level of stimulation that can just be tolerated by the patient. The pain tolerance threshold is past the pain threshold. re-innervation: The restoration of the innervation. 98
400-Series responsiveness: The degree to which a tissue or organ reacts to a stimulation. With a high responsiveness, a mild treatment is desired. With a low responsiveness, a more intensive treatment can be desired. Make a good estimate of the responsiveness to determine the correct dosage. rheobase: The minimum galvanic current strength required with the stimulation of the nerve to cause a muscle contraction. sclerolysis: The solution of a hardening of the tissue. The tissue can be chemically and electrically softened with a cathode in combination with chlorine or iodine. skin etching: Electro-chemical reactions that can be threatening for tissues and organs, especially for the skin. With correct application, a desired effect occurs, for example improvement of the circulation. Skin etching occurs with current shapes that have a direct current component. slow twitch muscle fibre: Muscle fibres with a low contraction speed. The fibres are fairly thin, produce a small amount of power and have a low fatigue level. See also type I muscle tissue. tetanic contraction: A persistent muscle contraction, on the basis of several contraction waves that are simultaneously in a muscle. You can cause tetanic contractions with an NMES surge current. tone: The tension state of tissues. trophic: The state of nourishment. type I muscle tissue: Muscle tissue with a low contraction speed. type II muscle tissue: Muscle tissue with a high contraction speed.
