FAQ

Technology.

How does Myovolt work?

Myovolt is a soft wearable electronic device with embedded actuators that generate physical vibration energy which is transmitted into muscles and soft tissues when worn against the body.

Myovolt applies an established physiotherapy treatment of Localized Vibration Therapy by delivering this in a unique wearable format that is comfortable, lightweight and easy to use on any part of the body.

What is it used for?

Myovolt is used to remove stiffness, soreness and increase circulation in muscles or joints. It is used extensively for sports and fitness recovery and performance and to alleviate work and general life related aches and pains. It can be used for the massage of tired or sore muscles, for movement enhancement, pain reduction and to improve flexibility of joints.

What is focal vibration?

Focal Vibration is the treatment of applying 20–100Hz vibration to the body surface resulting in a wide range of physiological benefits. Myovolt technology is engineered to apply FV on all parts of the body.

What are the benefits?

Myovolt is a muscle stimulation device and it works like a sports massage giving similar benefits. It can be used on sore and tired muscles to remove stiffness, loosen up, improve circulation, flexibility and give myofascial release.

Use as a warm-up tool before exercise or training to improve circulation and get muscles primed for action, helping to reduce the risk of injury. For recovery after training it's also a really easy and convenient way to help reduce soreness in overworked muscles, minimize DOMS and get you back to form quicker.

Who can use it?

Myovolt can be used by anyone who has soreness and stiffness in their muscles or joints from the exertions of daily life, sport or work. It's a simple, effective and drug free way to relax any tightness and relieve tension.

How does Myovolt differ from TENS or EMS?

TENS and EMS treatments apply an electrical current via electrodes that must be placed in direct contact with the skin to stimulate nerves. Some people find the sensation uncomfortable.

Myovolt uses a specific range of vibration frequencies that physically massage and stretch muscles fibres and stimulate nerves which results in increased blood flow, soreness relief, increase muscle flexibility and other effects. Myovolt is comfortable to use and does not require direct contact with the skin to work so it can be worn over clothing.

How does Myovolt differ from percussion guns?

Myovolt delivers Focal Vibration with a frequency range between 20–100Hz and at an amplitude of 1–2mm. This range of frequencies is scientifically proven to stimulate soft tissues and nerves for treatment of a wide range of musculoskeletal and functional mobility conditions among others.

Percussion technology uses the repetitive mechanical force of a gun or other impacting device typically working at an amplitude of 16mm. The lower amplitude of Myovolt means it's more comfortable to use and won't risk muscle damage. Myovolt also has a wider range of functional benefits for both recovery and mobility improvement.

Should I use Myovolt if I have a medical condition?

PLEASE DO NOT USE MYOVOLT WITHOUT FIRST OBTAINING APPROVAL FROM YOUR DOCTOR IF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING APPLY:

Pregnancy, diabetes with complications such as neuropathy or retinal damage, wear of pace-makers, recent surgery, epilepsy or migraines, herniated disks, spondylolisthesis, spondylolysis, or spondylosis, recent joint replacements or IUD’s, metal pins or plates or any concerns about your physical health. Frail individuals and children should be accompanied by an adult when using any vibration device. The above contra indications do not mean that you are not able to use Myovolt but it must be used only after consultation with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.

Should I use Myovolt if I have an injury?

We do not recommend the use of Myovolt by anyone who has an acute injury or has had prior surgery unless a doctor, specialist or physiotherapist has been consulted first. In some cases Myovolt can be useful as part of a wider treatment plan for a muscle/joint injury but it will depend on the specific advice given by your healthcare professional.

Can I wear the device whilst exercising or moving?

Yes. Myovolt is designed to wrap around the body and does not impede your movement. So you can get your vibration treatment on-the-go and keep moving around freely.

Operation.

How do I use Myovolt?

Here's our quick start guide to using Myovolt:

Charge the Module prior to use, the LED on the control switch is green when fully charged. Once charged press and hold the control switch on the module for 2 seconds to turn on. To change the treatment mode, a short press of the control switch will change the mode. The module will deliver a 10 minute treatment and then automatically switch off. If you want to use the module again after a completed treatment cycle press and hold the control switch for 2 seconds to start the module.

If you wish to turn the module off during a treatment cycle, press and hold the control switch until the module stops vibrating.

What treatment programs should I use?

Myovolt has three software controlled programs designed by our treatment professionals which vary in their combination of vibration frequency and intensity.

Mode 1) Increase circulation
Mode 2) Soreness and stiffness relief
Mode 3) Warming up muscles & increasing flexibility

These are just guides and you can select the one that works best for you.

How long do I use Myovolt for?

For best results use Myovolt regularly. We recommend you start to use your Myovolt product for its programmed length of 10 minutes. Clinical research on the Myovolt device bases its findings on a minimum treatment time of 10 minutes for soreness and stiffness relief.

The module is programmed to automatically switch off after the 10 minute cycle is finished but you can easily reactivate the module to extend your treatment. It is safe to use Myovolt daily and over a long period of time.

What body sizes does Myovolt fit?

Myovolt is a One Size Fits Most product and is fully adjustable to fit most people. If the product does not fit then just get in touch here and we will arrange extension straps: [email protected]

Do I wear Myovolt over or under clothes?

Myovolt uses physical vibration which is transmitted into the body when the device is worn and tensioned securely. It does not require skin contact to work so you can apply Myovolt straps over the top of sportswear and thin clothing or you can wear it comfortably next to your skin too.

Is Myovolt washable?

The Myovolt Vibration Module is an electronic device that is not designed to be washed. The Module is not waterproof and must not be used if it becomes wet.

The Myovolt Wrap is a textile garment, once the Myovolt Module is removed the wrap can be machine washed on a gentle cycle at 40°C, or hand washed. Line dry.

The Myovolt Module can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Take care not to get any moisture into the USB charging port area.

How long does the battery last?

When fully charged the battery should last for around 8 to 10 treatment cycles depending on the Mode selected. Each treatment cycle is 10 minutes in length and then the Myovolt Module will automatically switch off. There is a battery indicator that shows the level of charge remaining. A quick press of the LED switch will show the status of the battery as follows

Red: There is less than 30% power remaining and the module needs to be charged.
Orange: There is between 30–70% power remaining.
Green: There is 70–100% power remaining.

How do I recharge the battery?

The Myovolt Module is easily recharged using the micro USB cable supplied with the product. You can connect the cable into the charging port whilst the Module remains in the strap, there is no need to remove the Module from the strap to charge it.

When charging the Module the LED indicator will show a RED light. Once the battery is fully charged the LED indicator will change to GREEN. The charging time from empty to full is approximately 3 hours.
