User Guide

The Winks Greene Transeva machine is an up-to-the minute development of the original unit designed by Sir Charles strong, and employs the most advanced new technology available.
It is imperative you read, understand and follow the instructions in the user guide.
Before starting treatment, prepare the necessary saline and gel solutions required viz:-

  1. Winks Greene Transeva gel – refer to the tin re mixing instructions. This is an improved lubricant to be applied to the surface of the human mobile and body electrodes. U can also put a small amount on the skin surface to get a smooth treatment area.
  2. Animals do not need gel.

Please note that it is of the greatest importance to make sure that the horse’s hair is wetted thoroughly over the area of treatment, as they have a powdery layer next to the skin which acts as a waterproofing against rain. This is most prevalent during winter months. Unless this is penetrated by the saline solution, the horse will be shocked and the practitioner is likely to be kicked as a result!

Assembly

  1. Before switching on the Transeva . Turn all controls to zero settings. That is both knobs counter clockwise.
  2. 2 plug in both red and black male fly leads to their respective coloured sockets on the Transeva.
  3. Connect the black  lead to the body electrode.
  4. The machine may now be switched on.

Important Do's and Don'ts

  1. Do not continue contracting the muscles when signs of fatigue become evident.
  2. Do not force a muscle to contract when it is not relaxed.
  3. Always reduce the intensity of the machine when moving to another muscle, as all muscles vary with the strength need to flex them.
  4. Do NOT go over or close to the bone as it gives the patient an unpleasant burning sensation, and the patient will object strongly.
  5. Always keep your hand on the intensity knob and feel the way by watching the reaction of the patient at all times. If the patient or animal becomes restless, decrease the intensity immediately.
  6. Start the treatment using very little stimulation, work towards the suspected area of injury gradually – it is a searching exercise.
  7. The patient will let you know soon enough when the painful area is reached.
  8. The centre of the mobile electrode pinpoints the exact area of trauma.
  9. It is wise to mark the exact area for future use especially in animals, by shaving or clipping the hair in an area bout the size of your finger nail.
  10. There are two points marked with “o” on the diagram which are the best areas to start with, where the animal will become used to the sensation of the Transeva quickly.
  11. the diagram shows areas where you should not treat horses , areas where they will experience extreme discomfort do not go below the knees and the hocks. One should practice on a quiet healthy horse until proficiency with the machine is achieved.
  12. There are points marked with a star on the diagram which are the best areas to start with, where the animal will become used to the sensation of the Transeva quickly

  1. Blue stars mark the areas to start treatment.
  2. Red circle indicates the areas which cause discomfort.

Treatment

Become familiar with the muscle structure and bear in mind that the fitter muscles require less intensity for stimulation.
Do not work on small muscles or near bones close to the surface – very unpleasant for the patient
Continue moving the mobile electrode around the target area until a strong response occurs, then locate the motor point producing the greatest reaction.
Although painful, this is the region where further and gradually greater stimulation is to be applied, limited by the patient’s tolerance threshold for the period of treatment.
The patient must be encouraged to exercise the affected muscle between treatments to promote healing and decrease the risk of scar tissue formation.
Treatment should be 48 hours apart until healing takes place. Some find total relief after only one or two treatments, but if pain or swelling re-occurs they should be encouraged to return.
Treatment should be between 15 and 45 minutes for successful results, depending on the site and type of injury.

Faradism

Sir Charles Strong summarised his treatment as follows.

  1. Muscle elasticity –irritability and contractibility (i.e. muscle tone) are rapidly returned to normal.
  2. An increase of blood is brought to the muscle and to the neighbouring tissue with all attendant beneficial physiological chemical consequences.
  3. Waste tissue products are rapidly cleaned away and stagnation of lymph, with its serious consequences, is prevented.
  4. A large supply of oxygen and nourishment is brought to the injured part.
  5. Rapid absorption of fluid and extravasted blood and lymph is actively promoted.
  6. Beneficial chemical and physical changes take place after exercise.
  7. The movement of muscle do not allow the organosation of lymph to take place between their surfaces and thus the dangers of adhesions are minimised.
  8. As the movements do much to prevent the stagnation of lymph in areolar tissue in the joint interspaces, the danger of areolar tissue losing suppleness and flexibility, so necessary for joint action, is diminished.
  9. In the later stages of sprains, or if treatment has been long delayed, and adhesions have formed in the muscles and periarticular tissue, the adherent surfaces are gently and gradually separated by causing increasingly powerful contractions of the muscles .
  10. Muscles are prevented from wasting, particularly if treatment is given soon after injury. Wasted muscles however soon increase in bulk after treatment.
  11. No attempt is to be made to cut short the process of inflammation but simply to guide and control the process.

There are many ways to increase the arterial supply to any particular part, but unless that method improves the return circulation via the veins and lymphatic’s to exactly the same degree, it might produce a greater congestion, and so result in a diminution of the local circulation. This would retard healing.
