evoStim® UG is a dual channel electrical stimulator specifically designed for perineal stimulation with vaginal or anal probes. It is ease to use without sacrificing the flexibility and performance. The touch-screen and the unique rotating knob offer a friendly interface either for professional or home use. The intensity of stimulation and the waveform are adjustable independently on the two channels, offering the possibility of using probes with 4 electrodes of different shapes and positions.
The ergonomics of evoStim® UG unit is based on the rotation of the upper knob (to adjust the stimulation intensity or the value of the various parameters) and the push of the button, integrated in the same knob, to turn the unit on / off or pause / resume it. Changing the stimulation intensity or any other parameter must first be enabled by tapping the appropriate area of the touch screen.Intended use
The evoStim® UG unit can be directly used by the patient, but it is also suitable for professional use by health professionals dealing with physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Perineal electrical stimulation (PES) is commonly used to treat urinary incontinence in its various forms: urge, stress and mixed.50 programmes for perineal electrostimulation
The 5 virtual buttons at the bottom of the screen allow to quickly select one of the 5 therapeutic aims for the treatment of incontinence (URGE, STRESS and MIX) or for the treatment of pelvic pain (PAIN) or for the treatment of vaginism (RELX).
Each one of the 5 quick-selection virtual buttons is associated with a "standard" program, which is supported by the automatic parameter setting function (ACTION / REST) if the stimulation frequency is changed.
Therefore, since the last program used is re-loaded when the device is switched-on again, the simplified direct use for the patient only requires:
- switch-ON the unit,
- select one of the 5 virtual buttons (for the first session only),
- adjust the stimulation level for one or both channels.
Instead, the professional can link a different program (each of 10 for each button) to each of the 5 virtual buttons and all the parameters can be permanently changed. At any time, however, you can reset to the factory settings a single program, a program group, or all programs.2 wave-shapes for different types of probes
Selecting the type of probe connected to the unit,
automatically selects the most suitable waveform on each of
the two channels:
- Symmetrical biphasic rectangular pulses for the probes with ring electrodes;
- Alternating biphasic rectangular pulses for probes with lateral electrodes.
