Getting Started

The Bone Healing System Components

Getting Started with the Bone Healing System

The following components are included:

  • Controller
  • AC Wall Adapter
  • 28-inch and zero-inch link cables
  • Clip Holder
  • Belt

Charging the Device

To begin charging the device, plug the AC wall adapter into an outlet and then connect the adapter to the controller. An orange light on the side of the controller will light up while charging. Once fully charged, the light will change to green.

 

Connecting the Device to the Treatment Coil

To connect the link cable to the controller, insert one end of the link cable into the other corresponding end of the controller, until you hear a click.  The 28-inch or zero-inch link cable may be utilized based on the location of the treatment site and the specific treatment coil being utilized.  Then, connect the controller and link cable to the coil.

Beginning treatment

How do I know the system is working?

To begin treatment, press the power button on the controller.

Each time you turn the controller on, the following prompts will be displayed:

  • RECOMMENDED USE;
  • TREATMENT TIME; and
  • THE AMOUNT OF BATTERY LIFE REMAINING WITHIN THE CONTROLLER.

After the first day of use, it will also display Patient Usage data.  The controller will automatically record each treatment session. The daily recommended treatment session is ten hours per day.  After 10 hours of daily treatment, the controller will automatically turn off and reset to “0.” Treatment can occur continuously for 10 hours per day or in segments totaling 10 hours per day.  When treating in multiple segments, a minimum of 1 hour is required in order for treatment data to be registered within the controller.  To do this, hold the controller’s power button down until the controller turns off.  When the controller is turned back on after the 1-hour minimum, the amount of time already treated will be displayed for that day. 

 

Resetting Your Device

Pressing the RESET button for approximately three seconds will result in the display reading “RESETTING...” and the treatment time for that day will return back to “0.”
