TENS/EMS Electrodes, Pads, Lead Wires & Accessories
Carbon-silicone with skin mounts. The electrodes most often used are made of a carbon-silicone material that comes in various shapes and sizes. These electrodes are used with “skin mounts” that hold the electrodes in place and help conduct the current.
1. Clean and dry the black electrode. 2. Peel the liner from one of the adhesive mounts. 3. Carefully align the black electrode over the adhesive and press into place. There should be no large air bubbles trapped between the electrode and the adhesive. 4. Insert the lead wire into the electrode and remove the clear liner from the adhesive. Keep the liner for storing the electrode when you aren't using it. 5. Replace the adhesive mounting patches every 3 to 5 days. Pull off used adhesive before putting on new adhesive.
Reusable self-adhering electrodes
1. Remove electrodes from foil pouch and reseal pouch to protect remaining electrodes. Keep the pouch for storing the electrodes. 2. Attach lead wires to the electrodes before you remove the electrodes from the liner. 3. Peel the liner from the electrode. Keep the liner for storage. 4. You can remove and reattach this electrode for 7 to 10 days. 5. Do not wear electrodes while showering, bathing, or swimming. 6. Gently peel the electrodes from the skin at least once a day for cleaning. 7. Add a few drops of water to the gel before you apply the electrode if the electrode gel seems to be dry. 8. Replace the electrodes when you feel a change in stimulation or if the gel is crusted or separated.
Multi-day self-adhering electrodes
1. Attach lead wires to the electrodes before you remove the electrodes from the paper liner. 2. Peel the liner from the electrode. 3. This electrode may stay in place for 2 to 5 days and can be worn while you are bathing or swimming.
1. Make sure the amplitude controls (2 knobs on top of the unit) are turned on all the way to the left to the “O” (off) position. 2. Put a 9-volt battery into the battery compartment. 3. Attach the electrodes to the lead wires. 4. Prepare the electrodes for use according to the type of electrode you have been given and the instructions on page 2. 5. Use soap and water to clean the part of the body on which you will place the electrodes. Be sure to dry off completely. The unit will work best if the electrodes are placed on clean skin. Oils, creams, lotions, and soap residue can keep the unit from working well. 6. Put the electrodes on your skin in the places that your therapist has shown you. Do not use the electrodes if your skin is broken or cut. Do not shave the area where the electrodes will be placed. 7. Insert the plug ends of the lead wires into the output jacks of the TENS unit. You may put the lead wires into either jack. 8. Turn the unit on by turning the amplitude control to the right until it clicks. Be sure you are turning the control nearest to the jack you have used. If you have used both jacks (4 electrodes) you will need to adjust both amplitude control knobs. The light (yellow or red) on the top of your unit will come on when the unit is on. 9. Turn the amplitude control knob to the right until you feel a comfortable tingle. A sharp tingle that causes a feeling of pain will not be any more helpful, so do not turn the knob so far that the feeling is uncomfortable. 10. Your therapist will have already set the mode, rate (hertz), and other knobs to the correct setting. Do not change these settings. 11. After each use, turn the unit off by turning the amplitude control all the way to the left to the “O” (off) position. 12. If the light does not come on when you turn your unit on, the battery needs to be changed. Always turn the unit off before you change batteries. 13. A slide-on panel on the front covers the unit controls. Do not touch these controls. Do not remove the cover when you change the battery. Just press it slightly and slide it to the right. 14. You can clip your TENS unit to your clothes. 15. If your skin becomes red or sore, stop using the TENS unit, and call your doctor or therapist. After treatment is completed 1. Turn both amplitude control knobs to the “O” (off) position. Grasp the plugs, not the wires, and unplug the lead wires of the electrodes. You can leave the electrodes on your skin. 2. After you remove the electrodes, clean your skin thoroughly with soap and water.
