The CSTP pad has a handset with a LCD display. The time is displayed by the left LCS screen, the Cyclo-Therapy level (speed) is displayed in the right LCD screen. The CSTP pad has an electrical cable of +/- 3,5 m and is double insulated.
Before any of the functions will operate, the CSTP pad must be plugged into the mains (230V). The ON / OFF knop then pressed (fig. 3), a green LED will illuminate and the LCD display will show 0 under the time and speed.
To operate the Cyclo-Therapy, time must first be set. To select time, the upper left arrow button is pressed. Time can be set in 5 minute intervals from 5 to 60 minutes as displayed by the left display screen. To reduce or cancel time, press the bottom left arrow button.
By cancelling time, all functions are cancelled and the LCD-displays will return to 0.
Once time is set, the timer will count down in 1 minute increments as displayed. When time reaches 0 the therapy will stop.
Cyclo-Therapy level (Speed)
When time is set, the Cyclo-Therapy level (speed) can be selected. Pressing the upper right arrow button, the Cyclo-Therapy will start at minimum as indicated in the right LCD display (0 to 10 level scale). Holding the button down will slowly increase the level until the desired speed has been reached. To reduce the level, the bottom right arrow button when pressed, will slowly reduce the speed until 0 which will switch the therapy off.
When selected, the Cyclo-Therapy remains constant at the level selected.
Once the speed level selected is above 3.0, pressing the Polymodulation button will select this setting. This provides a pulsing speed action and the Cyclo-Therapy speed will rapidly vary from a lower to upper speed level setting. This provides a deeper penetrating pulse effect. Press the button again or Cycloid Action to cancel and this will return to the standard setting.
