The Alpha-Stim® AID may affect the operation of implanted demand-type cardiac pacemakers and implanted defibrillators.
For external use only. Do not allow children to use or handle this device without adult supervision. Do not operate potentially dangerous machinery or vehicles during treatment and in some cases for several hours after treatment. Safety of stimulation has not been established during pregnancy.
Current defaults to 1 (100 μA) when the Alpha-Stim AID is turned on. Increase Current slowly (5 is the highest setting) until a slight vertigo is experienced (a dizzy feeling, similar to the sensation of rocking on a boat), then decrease immediately until the dizziness stops. Also decrease immediately if the normal tapping sensation felt on the ear lobes is uncomfortable. For people who have a history of experiencing vertigo such as motion sickness, treat at a subsensory current setting of 1 (100 μA) for one hour or more to prevent residual vertigo after treatment. The tolerable current level will be determined by the subjective feeling of vertigo which should subside immediately upon reducing the current. The current should always be reduced just below the level that causes vertigo.
If you are over sensitised use the device with gauze on your ears before you attach the clips, or attach clips to the web between your fore finger and thumb. You can also use water instead of the solution on the clips.
Device is safe for children to use under adult supervision
