DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION OF THE DEVICE

Purpose of the device

The device provides the influence on the cutaneous covering by the corona high-frequency discharge without damaging the biological structural tissues (through-dermal stimulation) and is intended for the application in the cosmetology practice, sports medicine, house physiotherapy and family doctor practice, at the general patient care-and-preventive institutions for the prophylaxis and treatment of the dermatologic, therapeutic, neurologic, surgical, stomatologic, and ENT diseases.

The device is intended for the operation in conditions:

- the temperature of the ambient air from 10 °С up to 35 °С;

- relative humidity up to 80% at the temperature 25 °С;

- atmospheric pressure from 84,0 up to 106,7 kPa (from 630 up to 800 mm mc).

Structure and operation

The device structurally consists of two parts: the body of the generator and the body of the transformer. The bodies are made of the impact-proof plastic.

The plug for the connection to the circuit and the board with radioelements (generator) are placed in the body of the generator. The plug has two pins and the third pin is intended for the connection of the system grounding. The system grounding is made of the yellow-green wire.

The device plug is connected to the single-phase three-wire circuit socket, thus the contact of the socket protective grounding is connected to the wire of the device working grounding. In this case the level of the radio interferences generated by the device is admissible. To plug in the device into the twowire circuit socket or to the socket in which the protective grounding contact is connected to the zero circuit wire is not recommended thus the radio interferences level generated by the device will exceed the admissible.

1 – the generator

2 – the transformer

3 – electrodes

4 – the connecting cord

5 – the amplitude controller

The power supply, the pulse generator, the power supply voltage indicator and two safety devices are installed on the board with radioelements. The safety devices VP 1-2-1,0A ОЮО.480.003 TU are soldered on the board.

The controller of the output voltage «U» amplitude and the high-voltage coil (transformer) are placed in the body of the transformer. There is the electrode connection holder in the butt-end part of the body.

The transformer is connected by the cord to the generator.

The glass electrodes are filled by inert gas. The fungiform electrode is used for processing major sites, the cavitary electrode to influence local and hard-to-reach sites of the body, the crested electrode is used for the massage of the pilary part of the head.

The manufacturer sends the electric circuit and the list of device components by the inquiry of the enterprise, which has the right to repair medical equipment for usage while carrying out the repair by the qualified personnel.

The running order of the device is determined by the presence of the corona discharge while touching the cutaneous covering by the electrode. The intensity of the corona discharge is enlarged in the process of turning the output voltage «U»controller to the right.

DEVICE PREPARATION FOR USE

Keep the device not less than 4 hours in the room with the temperature from 10°С up to 35°С and relative humidity up to 80 % after the long-term storage or transportation of the device at the temperature lower than 10°С and и relative humidity over 80 %.

Take the device out of the consumer container, check its package contents, be sure that the bodies of the generator and the transformer, and the electrodes are safe and there are no isolation damages on the cord.

Choose the electrode by which procedure will be carried out.

Disinfect the device by the chemical agents: 3 % hydrogen peroxide solution by the GOST 177-88 adding 0,5 % washing-up liquid solution, type “Lotus” by the GOST 25644 or 1 %-s’ chloramine solution by ТU 6-01-4689387-16-89 by wiping the bodies and the device electrode by the napkin moistened in the given solutions. The napkin should be wrung out.

Put the electrode into the holder, not putting the considerable effort to the relative socle electrode cylinder. Be sure that the electrode is secured and put the output voltage «U» amplitude controller to the extreme left-hand position (thus the shortest line on the controller handle matches the cord input).

Plug in the device into the socket and be sure of the power supply voltage indicator lights.

Put the output voltage «U» controller approximately to the middle position and be sure of the device running order by the presence of the corona discharge by touching the patient’s cutaneous covering by the electrode.

The device is ready for use.

If there is no corona discharge while touching the patient’s cutaneous covering it is necessary to ionize the electrode. For this purpose it is necessary to put the output voltage «U» amplitude controller to the extreme right-hand position and move the electrode on the earthed metal subject (the heating battery, a water pipe etc.) before the corona discharge appearance in the electrode cavity.

USE OF THE DEVICE

Plug into the socket and make sure that the voltage indicator of the power supply glows.

Adjudge the necessary intensity of the corona discharge by individual sensation by the amplitude controller «U», i.e. slight pricking not causing unpleasant sensations should be felt.

Fix the starting time of the procedure and lead the treatment according to «The Instruction of medical application».

When using on the skin expose the skin site previously dried and powdered by talcum. Move the electrode continuously and smoothly on the body site not taking it away from the surface.

When the time of the procedure expires adjudge the amplitude controller of the target voltage «U» to the extreme left-hand position and only after that remove the electrode from the body.

Switch-off the device from the power circuit. Take the electrode out of the holder. In order to prevent the electrode from damaging during the extraction do not create strong lateral load at the electrode. Take it out parallel to the transformer body without rotation.

Maintain an interval no less than 10 minutes after ending each procedure and an interval no less than 30 minutes after operating during 8 hours.

While operating the device do not allow the patient to contact with any earthed subjects and the subjects on which the patient settles down should be made of nonconducting material.

Do not use the device in the rooms with increased humidity (bathrooms, kitchens etc.).

The working device should be held by the hand not closer than 30-40 mm from the place of the electrode output from the transformer body.

ATTENTION: BEFORE PLUGING IN THE DEVICE MAKE SURE THAT THE ELECTRODE IS INSTALLED IN THE HOLDER! IT IS FORBIDDEN TO PLUG IN THE DEVICE WITHOUT THE ELECTRODE.

IT IS FORBIDDEN TO USE THE DEVICE BY PERSONS WHO USE OUTSIDE AND IMPLANTED ELECTRIC CARDIOSTIMULATORS.

The mushroom-shaped electrode is used while processing major sites. Cavity electrode is used while processing extremity phalanxes;

- Procedure duration is 5 minutes for each of the affected skin sites;

- During the treatment session it is possible to treat to 5 various sites on the body surface, choosing them in the arbitrary sequence;

- After the procedure treat the skin with softening cream or vegetable oil;

- The course of treatment consists of 10…15 sessions which are carried out daily or in a day.

While treating skin diseases with exudate discharge distant technique in labile mode is applied:

- Put 2…3 layers of gauze or linen fabric on the affected skin site, then apply the electrode to the fabric and having chosen the acceptable action mode, by rotating the amplitude controller, move it in the linear or circular motions during 8 minutes above the affected site;

- During the session of treatment it is possible to treat about 4 various body sites;

- The course of treatment consists of 10…15 sessions which are carried out daily or in a day.

For preventive care of hair head parts diseases (seborrhea, hair loss, psoriasis, dandruff) the contact technique using comb electrode is applied. Metal subjects are previously removed from the hair, the hair is combed, then the comb electrode with the amplitude controller of the target voltage to the extreme left-hand position is placed on the head. Slowly move the electrode from the forehead to the nape, turning the amplitude controller to the right. The intensity of the action is before the slight pricking and heat is felt. Procedures during up to 10 minutes are carried out daily or in a day. The course of treatment consists of 20…25 sessions.
