To stop the device, push briefly on .
Or to return in the menu made 2 brief pushes on .
STEP 2: Selecting the muscle zone(s) to stimulate
Choosing the 1st zone :
The screen displays , meaning you can choose a first muscle zone.
- To choose the front muscles, validate with the “ OK ” key.
- To choose the back muscles, press the " " key.
- To return to the front muscles, press the " " key.
If you have chosen the front muscles : the 1st muscle zone at the bottom blinks: quadriceps.
If you have chosen the back muscles : the 1st muscle zone at the bottom blinks: gastrocnemius (calves)
Press the " " key to move upwards and scroll the different muscle zones.
To go back, press the key.
After selecting the muscle group, validate using the “OK” key
Choosing the 2nd zone :
All pictograms blink and the screen displays .
The screen proposes to choose a 2nd muscle zone :
To choose a 2nd muscle zone, validate again either the front muscles or the back muscles, validate “OK”.
Choose again another muscle zone, then validate “OK”.
If you wish one muscle zone only, press the “ ” key and go to step 3.
The muscle zone(s) selected is (are) displayed.
STEP 3: Selecting the program
Programs on the left ( SPORT programs ) blink.
If you choose the SPORT programs, validate “OK”.
To choose the HEALTH programs, press the “” key and validate “OK”.
Scroll through the programs by pressing the “” key.
The screen first displays the 1st lower pictogram while displaying the corresponding program number at the top.
To go back, press the “” key.
You have now chosen the muscle zone(s) to be stimulated, and the program.
STEP 4: Choose the “Warm-up phase” and ALT SIM option
(Only for programs to ).
The screen proposes a warming-up phase before starting the active phase of the program.
The “ ” WARM-UP PHASE pictogram blinks in the top right corner.

The screen is displayed :
- the battery level,
- phase duration (countdown in minutes),
- timer pictogram,
- the “ ” or “ ” option and warm-up phase if you have selected them.
The pictogram for the program chosen is lit, the muscle zone(s) chosen blink alternately.
STEP 5: Launching the start - Adjusting intensity
Then, press the “+” buttons of the intensity keys matching the wires connected to your electrodes to start the program.
If the battery is low, do not start the program.
The power level(s) are displayed at the bottom of the screen. The intensities vary during the session according to the program’s content.
A long press on the “-” key returns the power rapidly to 0.
STEP 6: Program performance

During the program, press the “” key during a phase to set its time to zero.
The next phase starts unless you have reached the end of the program.
In this case, this key allows returning to selecting the 1st muscle zone (as at normal end of program).
Disconnecting the electrodes during the program :
If an electrode is disconnected, the channel concerned is reset to and blinks for 30 sec, before returning to a fixed .
During these 30 sec, the electrode(s) can be reconnected, and power restored to the level required.
STEP 7: End of program - Stopping
At the end of the session, the screen proposes to start a new session by blinking the front muscles to select the 1st muscle zone.
Restart the starting procedure if you wish to continue on another muscle zone.
Otherwise, press the “ ” key to stop.
The unit switches to standby after 5 minutes idle.
The pictograms for upper muscles and for lower muscles are different. Avoid selecting upper muscles and lower muscles, as the unit would give priority to upper muscles, reducing somewhat the yield of work on lower muscles.
