Positioning the electrodes on the body is indicated by pictures within the app for each body zone and program as well as in the manual.
It is important to position the electrodes properly. The effectiveness of your sessions will depend in part on how you place your electrodes on the skin. You may want to consult your doctor or health provider (PT) to establish the ideal electrode positions for your intended application area.
Before placing the electrodes, ensure you have good sensation in the area. If in doubt about the ideal placement you can move the electrodes to find the best sensation for you.
There is no danger if the electrodes are badly positioned. The stimulation will simply become less effective and if not enough contact is made with the skin the app will issue a warning.
If you find an area to be effective, note the placement for future use. If you suffer discomfort (unpleasant contractions during burst tens programs), it is advisable to move the electrodes. If during ems programs (intended especially to create a contraction of the muscle) no contraction occurs, this may mean an intensity is too low or the electrodes have been placed incorrectly.
It is possible that you may need additional assistance for placing the electrodes on certain areas i.e. back area.
Make sure that the device is switched off when moving the electrodes to avoid risk of injury to yourself or others.
Clean skin thoroughly prior to each application of the electrodes. Electrodes do not stick well if any lotion, oil, make-up, dirt, etc. is left on skin. Always moisten skin with a damp cloth prior to applying the electrodes. This will improve the electrode adhesion and life.
You should never apply any electrical stimulation device to your neck (throat and sides of the neck), head, or chest.
