Please follow the safety instructions below when using Self-adhesive Electrode.
( * ITO does not distribute or market electrodes in the United States. )
Do not use the Self-adhesive Electrode on injured areas of the skin.
Do not use the Self-adhesive Electrode if it loses its adhesion strength. The electric current may concentrate in a certain area, depending on conditions of contact with the skin, resulting in burns or inflammation.
If chapping of the skin or burn/inflammation occurs, stop using the product immediately.
If a cosmetic product such as lotion or oil is left on the skin, the Self-adhesive Electrode will not adhere well to the skin. Clean the skin with soap and lukewarm water and dry thoroughly before attaching the Self-adhesive Electrode.
If the skin surface is wet with sweat, such as after exercising or warming (with a hot pad, etc.), wipe off the sweat with a dry towel or other material before attaching the Self-adhesive Electrode. Do not heat the treatment area by placing hot packs or similar products on top of the Self-adhesive Electrode. Heat may concentrate in a small area and cause burns or inflammation.
Make sure the connection pins of the electrode cords are free of dirt before use. If dirty, wipe with a soft cloth moistened with lukewarm water or alcohol. Dirty pins can cause contact failures, resulting in a sudden change of electric current and resulting in burns or inflammation. Contact failures can also occur if the Self-adhesive Electrode has a loose connection. If you notice any loose connections, replace the Self-adhesive Electrode with new ones.
Insert each pin of the electrode cable into the end of each cord firmly until you can no longer see the metal portion.
When removing the Self-adhesive Electrode from the storage plate or the skin, grasp a corner and slowly lift. Never pull the cord to remove.
When attaching the Self-adhesive Electrode, make sure they are in firm contact with the skin. If there is any space between the Self-adhesive Electrode and the skin, simulation will be unusually strong causing pain and in some cases resulting in burns or other injury to the skin.
Be sure to turn off the power switch for the Main Unit before removing the Self-adhesive Electrode from the skin.
After use, return the Self-adhesive Electrode to the storage plate, then place in the bag. Store at room temperature.
The validity period for the Self-adhesive Electrode is indicated on the bag. Do not use past the expiration date.
The Self-adhesive Electrode features consumable parts. When adhesion weakens, replace the Self-adhesive Electrode with new ones.
Note that if a patient has a transmittable disease, the disease may be transmitted to other people via the Self-adhesive Electrode.
Be careful when using the Self-adhesive Electrode on people who tend to display skin rash reactions to poultices or adhesive plaster, etc. The Self-adhesive Electrode may cause skin rashes or reddening of the skin with such individuals.
If using the Self-adhesive Electrode causes a skin rash, redness of the skin, skin irritation, etc. during use, immediately stop using the product and consult your dealer.
When attaching the Self-adhesive Electrode, do not place over or in contact with metal items (necklace, belt, watch, etc.).
Do not apply excessive force to the Self-adhesive Electrode during use, for example, by placing it under the body. The electric current will concentrate in a small area, causing burns or inflammation.
Do not use the Self-adhesive Electrode past its expiration date or if it has poor adhesion strength. Using the electrode in these states as well as compensating with tape, bands, underwear, etc. will not provide appropriate effects and may in some cases result in sudden and strong stimulation, causing burns or other injury to the skin.
Use only genuine Self-adhesive Electrodes manufactured under rigid quality control to ensure safety. The manufacturer is not responsible for burns, equipment malfunctions, or other problems resulting from use of counterfeit products.
