Knee Pain

BioWaveGO Pain Relief Pad placements are different from conventional electrical stimulation. The active electrical field forms beneath and surrounding each pad. As a result, pads need to be placed directly over specific locations of pain.

 

Pads must not touch each other:

 

• One inch is the minimum spacing between pads

 

• There is no maximum spacing between pads
