Thank you for purchasing reflexology zones testing software. You are about to discover the comfort and convenience of the software.
The present Maintenance Guide is intended for acquaintance with the rules and order of the electro-acupuncture testing and reflexology zones testing software operation.
Reflexology zones testing software has been designed to be easy and simple to use and comes with a comprehensive guidance to maximize ease of use. The Maintenance Guide contains information necessary for correct software operation. You should read the manual carefully before using your software.
Our software can be used to assess a whole body health via reflexology zones measurements and obtain information for proper subsequent influence that you use in your practice. The software is intended for getting system evaluation, for defining functional activity of organs and systems with the help pf electrical conductance measurements and problems’ correction with color and frequencies.
The main objective of the software to become integrated with a computer in a more user-friendly way for a practitioner. It allows the practitioner to send results of reflexology zones measurements directly to their PC and create automated and accurate information for providing patients with an objective, patient-friendly, graphical print out at each visit.
The direct reading from probe to computer saves the practitioner's time and allows him to obtain analysis information of the entire body within a short time.
The place of examination should be protected against the high-power sources of electromagnetic fields to avoid the interference in the measurement process. If there are other electrical devices which are the sources of electromagnetic fields, it is necessary to switch them off before person’s examination.
The connection of the USB- port cable, electrodes for frequency correction, measuring active/passive probes and passive probe is realized only in dedicated for them jacks (sockets).
The computer should be reliably grounded.
An examinee should take off watches, rings, glasses with metallic items, jewelry which may interfere with the readings should be removed before examination. Hands and feet should not be moistened with oils, lotions or excessive perspiration. It is undesirable to take pills, alcohol, coffee affecting nervous system prior to the examination. Before taking a measurement wait for some time after drill, meal, etc. A person should be calm and relaxed. Don’t hold the passive electrode too firm or too loose as it can create altered measurements (too firm contact creates higher readings, too soft contact creates lower readings).
To create an accurate reading an examiner should not touch the examinee during measurement (only touching the measurement point by the active/passive probe, no physical contact).
Make sure that the moistened cotton on the active/passive probe is in contact with metal of the probe. The moist cotton should not be too wet or too dry. It is appropriate to douse in water the active/passive probe to maintain cotton moistened during the test.
If the skin of the examinee is too moistened with oils, lotions or perspiration dab gently excess moisture avoiding friction over the hands. During measurement don’t press too hard or too gentle on the examined points.
Electric cardiac pacemaker; coagulation failure; congenital deformity of central nervous system; implantable cardio stimulator; individual intolerance to current electricity; injury on a skin after electro stimulation; state of acute psychic excitement or intoxication (alcohol), pregnancy.
