Using Beurer FM 250 Vital Legs Circulation Stimulator
Vital Legs Circulation Stimulator combines electromuscular stimulation (EMS) with added built-in step function.
During EMS therapy with the Vital Legs Circulation Stimulator, gentle electric pulses stimulate nerves and muscle fibres through the skin electrodes placed on the calves as well as directly through the soles of the feet resting on the conductive surface of the Vital Legs pedals. Electrical pulses penetrate the skin and target the nerves and muscles, causing the muscles to repeatedly contract and relax just like during physical exercise. The stimulation increases blood flow in the lower legs and feet and improves circulation.
During stimulation you will feel gentle tingling or vibrating sensation. You can adjust the intensity signals up or down to suit your need and preference. The sensation should be felt, but must not be painful or uncomfortable.
Step function is an additional feature. It is built-in into the construction of the Vital Legs, making it into a stepper that can be used alone between EMS treatments or together during the EMS treatments.
Vital Legs Circulation Stimulator is simple and easy to use. User manual is illustrated and simple to follow.
