Product announcement for bioemg III
The EMG snap electrodes should not be used for the Ground/Reference electrode. We recommend the use of our 7022 ground electrodes.
Failure to use the proper electrode for the ground/reference electrode can in some rare cases result in skin irritation at the site of the ground/reference electrode. Use of the proper ground/reference electrode will protect the patient in the event of a component malfunction due to electrostatic discharge.
We do not believe the EMG III poses any significant threat to the health and safety of you, your patients or team, but proper use of the 7022 electrode as your ground/reference must be adhered to.
We are sending a sample pack of 7022 electrodes free of charge to each purchaser of the BioEMG III. If you do not have the proper ground electrodes please wait until the proper ground electrodes arrive before using the EMG III. These sample packets will be mailed no later than Monday March 5th 2018.
In 2 instances an electrostatic discharge caused a component to fail, the correct ground electrode was not used, the patient was attached to the BioEMG III for an hour or more and skin irritation occurred.
If your patient experiences any of the following during testing: a tingling sensation or warmth at any electrode site, or any skin irritation, discontinue use immediately and call BioRESEARCH at 800-251-2315.
