SCENAR-therapy with model 035-4
Main operating modes of SCENAR-series model 035-4 used in practical application
Before using SCENAR series models for treatment, each device is adjusted and tuned by special reference terminations.
SCENAR series model 035-4 is designed so that reference terminations connected to its electrodes light up the left LED for 3 seconds with 1-second pause followed by another 3-second lighting ended with a sound signal. At the same time the LEDs lighting shift form left to right. In other words, the left LED switches for 3 seconds, then switches off for 1 second, then switches on again for 3 seconds and after that you hear a beep indicating end of action cycle. At the same time the left LED switches off and the right LED switches on.
Since this operating mode corresponds to work with reference terminations, not to action upon the patient, it is called “zero mode”. Zero mode appearing during action upon the patient, testifies no changes of skin electric potential. This mode occurs when the action upon the disordered organ is ended or indicates no pathology in the area being acted upon. Thus, in zero mode, no therapeutic effect can be observed.
All other modes are supposed to produce certain effect upon the patient's body. There are only 5 modes available, no matter what pathology the patient has.
Frequent rhythmical flashes of the left LED.
Or all flashes are different in duration. Pauses between flashes are different too.
When you put the device electrode on skin, the first flash of the left LED lasts over 3 seconds. The following flashes will be different in duration and pauses.
For example, the first flash can last for 4, 5 or 10 seconds, etc. — over 3 seconds. Then the LED switches off and following flashes and pauses between them are different. The action is ended with a sound signal.
Thus, characteristic feature of mode 2 is long first flash of the left LED.
Mode 3 often occurs in SCENAR practice and is characterized by the first flash of the left LED less than 3 seconds, which is followed by the sound signal right before the first flash is ended or after the second flash. The pause between these two flashes is less than 3 seconds.
Characteristic features of mode 3 can also be the following: first flash — less than 3 seconds, it may be different in duration but always less than 3 seconds. All the rest flashes are equal in duration and last over 3 seconds.
For example, if the second flash lasts 4 seconds, all the rest flashes will last for 4 seconds too. Pauses between flashes are equal too, but always over 1 second.
In mode 1 all flashes are less than 3 seconds and are different in duration. Pauses between flashes are different too. In mode 3 all pauses are equal in duration and always over 1 second. For example, if the first pause was 1.5 seconds, all the rest will be 1.5 seconds, if 2 seconds — all the rest will be 2 seconds.
Rather often these three modes change each other in the cycle of treatment, i. e. mode 1 is followed by mode 2, and mode 2 is followed by mode 3 which is followed by mode 1 again, etc.
Main characteristic features are the same as in mode 2, but the difference is as follows. The device switches off completely while being put on the skin without any sound signal.
In mode 4 the first flash is always over 3 seconds. When the action cycle is ended the right LED blinks (like when you press “OFF” button) and switches off. It switches itself off without you pressing “OFF” button, i. e. while the electrode is still put on skin.
If you put the device away from skin after it produced the sound signal, it will stop beeping and the left LED will switch on again indicating action mode. SCENAR will continue working. If your SCENAR switches off completely and no indicator will flash it does not mean that your device is broken, it just shows you one of the action modes called “energy hole”. In this mode battery power consumption is increased, and the battery is discharging. Sometimes it consumes energy 5–10 times as much than in modes 1, 2, 3. Each patient needs different power consumption used by the device. For example if the patient has many “energy holes” you can discharge the battery completely very quickly. When treating other patients the battery charge can serve for 16 hours of continuous work.
Characterized by combination of features of modes 1, 2, 3, replacing one another (1+2, 1+2+3, 3+1, 3+2 etc.). The action cycle is ended with the sound signal indicating end of the individually-dosed action.
If you see several short flashes less than 3 seconds, according to mode 1, all flashes must be less than 3 seconds until this mode is ended. If during these flashes you see a longer flash, according to mode 2, longer flash (over 3 seconds) must appear in the beginning of the action cycle, but you see it in the middle of the cycle. According to mode 3, there must be several such longer flashes (over 3 seconds) and all of them must be the same in duration, beginning with the second flash. But this longer flash is, for example, the fifth, and then followed by short flashes.
This is the case of mixed modes. First you see mode 1, then you seem to see mode 2, but then again mode 1, or mode 3. You see regular flashes each over 3 seconds, long pauses between flashes and expect a sound signal, but your device starts short flashes, which is not characteristic of mode 3. This is mode 3+1.
Or mode 3+2. At first you see equal long flashes with equal long pauses over 1 second followed by a flash much longer than the previous ones, which occurs only once. Then you see different flashes and pauses. This is mixed mode 3+2.
There are no mixed modes like mode 2+ some other mode (e. g. no mode 2+1 or 2+3) because mode 2 can only be distinguished by the first interval which can be followed by any other combination of flashes and pauses, mode 1, or mode 3. So mode 2 will always be just mode 2, no combination.
So mode 5 is a mixture of various modes. When device works in mode 5 the body cannot order its reactions upon actions produced upon it and shows that it cannot choose what organ or system to help first, which manifests in mode 5.
To sum it up — SCENAR series model 035-4 has five main operating modes. Modes 1–3 occur most often. Modes 4 and 5 are rare.
