Indications For Use

The Scientific Imaginetics TMR is intended for temporary symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain, and as an adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain.

Contraindications (You Must...)

  1. Never place electrodes in a manner that applies current to the carotid sinus (neck) region.
  2. Never use the TMR on patients who have a demand-type cardiac pacemaker.
  3. Never place the electrodes in a manner that causes the current to flow trans-cerebrally (through the head).
  4. Never use the device when pain syndromes are undiagnosed until the etiology is established.

 

Warnings

  1. The safety of the TMR for use during pregnancy or birth has not been established.
  2. The TMR is not proven effective for pain of central origin. (This includes headache.)
  3. The TMR should be used only under the continued direct supervision of a physician.
  4. The TMR has no proven curative value.
  5. The TMR is a symptomatic treatment and, as such, suppresses the sensation of pain which would otherwise serve as a protective mechanism.
  6. Keep this device out of the reach of children
  7. Electronic monitoring equipment (such as ECG monitors and ECG alarms) may not operate properly when the TMR is in use.
  8. Simultaneous connection of a patient to high frequency surgical equipment may result in burns at the site of the TMR electrodes and possible damage to the TMR.
  9. Operation in close proximity (e.g. 1m) to a short wave or microwave therapy equipment may produce instability in the TMR output.

 

Precautions

  1. Isolated cases of skin irritation may occur at the site of electrode placement following long-term application.
  2. Effectiveness is highly dependent upon patient selection by a person qualified in the management of pain patients.

 

Adverse Reactions

Skin irritation is a potential adverse reaction to electrical stimulation.  Skin reddening may also result from increased blood flow.
