Providing pain relief since 2014

Directions for Use

Your HiDow device is engineered to recover muscle aches and provide muscle stimulation.
Many key features are carefully implemented on your device for a quality experience.

1. Multiple combinations of bio-electrical signals with variable frequencies
2. Realistic traditional Chinese massage (Tui Na) sensations and acupuncture technology
3. Portable, lightweight, durable design
4. Reusable, self-adhesive, silicon, electrode gel pads
5. Adjustable timer

Directions
1. Place both electrode pads on the area of your body where you are experiencing stress, stiffness, aches or pain.
2. Set the unit to the mode and intensity level that fits your personal preference.
Always start at the lowest intensity first and work up. Never start at a very high-intensity level.
3. Sit back and enjoy the deep, relaxing sensations of your HiDow electronic muscle stimulator.

Never place electrode pads on the following areas:

  • Sinus nerves
  • Throat or mouth
  • Temples or around the brain
  • Swollen, Infected, or Inflamed areas
  • Skin eruptions
  • Cancerous lesions
  • Directly on your heart

Extending the life of your electrodes:

  • Attach your electrode wires to pads before you remove the plastic protector cover and before you place it on your body.
  • Don’t touch the gel on the pads as this will reduce the life of your pads. Your pads are reusable so please don’t throw them away after use. Before you place your pads on the area to be treated spray some HiDow ion conductor onto the pads to improve adhesiveness to your skin.

Charging Your Device

  • The lithium battery can be recharged through both AC adapter and USB cable.
  • While charging, the screen in ON position indicates the charge, while in OFF position the screen is blank.
  • The battery will charge in either one of the power positions (ON or OFF).
  • The battery should be charged for 8-10 hours before first use.
  • The device battery is built into our HiDow devices and is non-removable.

HiDow Maintenance and Care

  • Make sure your skin is free from any dirt, oil, or lotions.
  • Before applying the gel pads, put a few drops of water on your fingers and rub them on both pads. This will help the gel pads maintain their adhesiveness.
  • When you finish using the device, turn it off.
  • Take off the gel pads.
  • Place the protective films back on the gel pads or place them on the pad holder.
  • Take the electrode wires out from the device and place back in the box until next use.
  • Store your HiDow device in a cool, dry place until next use.

Explanation of HiDow Modes


Mode 1- Kneading: Simulates the thumbs fingers and palms of a real massage therapist. The
sensation should feel like a vibration. Focuses in on hypertension and stress and helps to break that down returning full range of motion and flexibility.


Mode 2- Acupressure: a much more rapid and focused pulse that focuses in on any knot or adhesion in the body. It puts enough pressure on it to break it down and release any acidic (lactic) content within.


Mode 3- Tapping: simulates a second heartbeat. By tapping the muscle you increase the body’s
natural blood flow and oxygen supply to the target area. This also helps flush any inflammation or swelling in the target area.


Mode 4- Cupping: This will reach in, grab, and stretch the muscle. Help to lengthen and broaden
it, the release it as it sets it back. This will help to increase flexibility and mobility of the muscle.


Mode 5- Hot Stone: relaxation mode. This simulates a regular manual rolling massage helping the soft tissue to release and relax.


Mode 6- Shuffle: This is a combination of modes 1,4,5. This is a great mode to use when cooling
down from an exercise.


Mode 7- Elbow Pressing: This mode simulates the massage therapist by pressing on the body with the elbow. It is designed to relieve muscular spasm pains on the shoulder and back.


Mode 8- Trigger Point: This is simulating a massage therapist by pressing the trigger points along meridians with fingertips. It is used to relieve fatigue, keep healthy and energetic, and to relax tendons.


Mode 9- Reflexology: This mode has been designed for the shoes. It simulates a reflexology session through the socks and/or shoes using several different stimulation patterns.


Mode 10- Auricular Therapy: This mode is also known as “alpha stim” or “microcurrent”. When used properly you should use the earflap attachment. It works 2 ways. By simulating an alpha wave in the brain it has been known to help sleep patterns, behavior, and endorphin release. Also, it will relax the suboccipital muscles and vasodilate, helping with migraines and headaches.


Mode 11 & Mode 12- Micro Current (A) / Micro Current (B): These two modes are similar but different in frequency. Micro Current is well known as “human bioelectricity”. This mode is to prevent and treat diseases by using the current to increase microcirculation to the area. This can help with swelling, joint relief, muscle pain relief, and performance.


Mode 13: Muscular Warm Up: This mode is designed to increase the temperature of muscle ligaments and joints. It can extend the range and ability of joints and ligaments, also can reduce muscle viscosity and improve muscular contraction and flexibility. Muscular warm-up is a key to improve the quality of training and prevent injury of sports.


Mode 14: Muscular Reinforcement: This mode can improve the quality of training, help to prevent sports injuries, and strengthen the muscle. It can also be used to provide a suitable physical exercise which can accelerate the blood circulation of injured or atrophic muscle tissues and promote the protein synthesis so as to accelerate the rehabilitation of muscular atrophy.


Mode 15: Muscular Relaxation: This mode is designed to stimulate muscles, release tension and promote overall well being through simulating an all-embracing massage.


Mode 16: Contract and Hold: This mode is the longest contraction on the machine. It is designed to simulate a flex movement to help build muscle tissue.


Mode 17: Ramping wave: This mode is designed to start out with number 3, tapping. It will get faster and deeper into the belly of the muscle as it continues until it goes to a fully facilitated contraction. Then it will allow the muscle to release. This has been used to increase endurance and build fatigue resistance.


Mode 18: Tapping and kneading: a mixture of the fast and slow contractions.


Precautions

Side effects entailed to a TENS unit are very rare; however, our devices cannot be used by any individual impacted by the following medical conditions.

-Pacemaker and Severe Heart Disorders
-Pregnancy
-Epilepsy and Seizures

Side-effects to TENS therapy is rare, but if you have any conditions mentioned above, you should not use electrotherapy devices. You should also avoid it if you have the following:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Cancer or are recovering from cancer
  • Any electronic implanted device
  • Plates in your body and/or titanium screws and/or pins

Important: Never place gel pads or accessories directly on your heart or the temple region on either side of your head. If you are unsure, please, consult with your doctor before using our device.
