- Alleviate and calm muscle spasms
- Stimulate release of body’s own natural endorphins for general pain relief, soothing and overall feeling of wellbeing
VeinoPlus Back therapy focuses
on treating pain on the back of the body (upper back, middle back, lower back), requiring placement of skin electrodes on 3 defined areas:
- back of the neck/upper back
- over shoulder blades/middle back
- coccyx area/lower back
Below figure shows, where to place skin electrodes for the best outcomes.
Using VeinoPlus Back
VeinoPlus Back features single treatment program that lasts 45 minutes. VeinoPlus Back is simple to use. Just place 2 self-adhesive skin electrodes on your painful area or an area that requires relaxation.
One treatment session takes 45 minutes. As the device completes the session, it stops automatically.
You can perform several sessions one after the other in a row. There is no minimum resting time between sessions. There is no risk of overuse. The more you use the VeinoPlus Back, the more effective the treatment becomes.
- Ensure that the battery is inserted into the battery compartment correctly.
- Place both self-adhesive skin electrodes on the painful area (as illustrated). Connect them with the device using connective cable lead provided. After skin electrodes are connected, switch the device on by pressing central key.
- Slowly increase the intensity of stimulation by pressing the + key (plus key) to reach comfortable level. The higher the intensity, the better the outcomes. However, always remember that the treatment should not become too uncomfortable or painful! If the stimulation sensation become to strong, reduce the intensity by pressing the – key (minus key).
- The device will switch automatically off after 45 minutes.
- You can repeat treatment session(s) immediately by restarting the device.
- You can stop the device at any time during treatment session by pressing the ON/OFF button.
- After treatment, when the device is switched off, disconnect the electrodes, and remove them from your skin.
- Store the electrodes on the side ON of the plastic shields in their original sealed bag. This will prevent the adhesive gel from prematurely drying out.
- When the electrodes begin to lose their adhesive strength, drop 1 -2 drops of water on the surface of the gel to extend their usage.
- When the electrodes become very dry and are no longer adhesive, replace them.
- Refer to instructions on best handling of the skin electrodes shown on the plastic resealable electrode bag.
- VeinoPlus Back is battery powered. It uses 9 V alkaline batteries or rechargeable 9V batteries type 6LR61. You can easily obtain the batteries from supermarkets, electric retailers or online. Please do not use the lithium batteries as these could negatively affect functioning of the VeinoPlus.
