The Primo Vacuum 660 unit includes four vacuum electrode cups (60mm) each with sponge inserts, four vacuum electrode leads and one link lead to connect to inferential/stimulation/combination unit.
The Vacuum 660 unit provides a convenient form of electrode application for interferential therapy. The cup electrodes with their sponge inserts are held in place by a partial vacuum. Both the vacuum and the electrical connection to each cup are provided by a single lead.
This method of electrode application is particularly suitable when treating relatively flat, smooth areas of the body such as the back where the cups may be attached quickly and easily. Also, this method is useful when treating relatively immobile patients, as the electrodes may be applied with the patient in a comfortable position without having to be moved for the application of velcro bandages.
With the Vacuum 660 unit the vacuum may be set to a convenient and comfortable level with a front panel control.
Connection to an interferential unit is made from the socket on the front of the Vacuum 660 unit, using the link lead provided. Two or four pole electrode applications may be used.
A pulsed vacuum mode is provided to further reduce the likelihood of bruising due to the vacuum. Two pulse rates are provided.
