With its more intensive vibration strength, NOVAFON power is particularly suitable for the treatment of large muscle areas, e.g. in orthopaedic disorders. Because of their higher amplitude, the vibrations generated are stronger and penetrate even deeper into the tissue. The “power” version is particularly suitable for sports therapy, physiotherapy and naturopathy.

What is the difference between the various types of device?
These differences are best seen in a side-by-side comparison.
Is this device suitable for my area of expertise or my problem?
If you are a private user, you will be given a direct recommendation under "Self User" for a particular device depending on the area that you wish to treat. If you work in the therapeutic sector, you will find a device recommendation in the "Professional User" section listed below the applications for each specialist area.
How do I clean the device housing and attachments?
For cleaning, disconnect the device from the power circuit. If used privately, clean the housing and attachments using a clean cloth dampened with clear water or a mild soapy solution. For clinical and professional use, clean and disinfect the housing, plate attachment and ball attachment using a suitable surface disinfectant for medical devices before and after each use. As a general rule, NOVAFON recommends alcohol-free disinfectants that are suitable for use on sensitive surfaces, such as SinAlc sensitive by HIMED or RHEOSEPT-WD plus wipes by Rheosol. If necessary, dry off with a soft cloth.
Which settings does the device have, and what are they used for?
There is a black control knob at the top of the device for controlling vibration intensity. The toggle switch sets the frequency: Setting 1: 100 Hz; Setting 2: 50 Hz.
My Novafon gets very hot at the front. What should I do? And how long should a treatment take?
The therapeutic application should not exceed a maximum of two 20-minute treatment units per day. Please note that the NOVAFON must be switched off for 15 minutes after using it for 20 minutes in order to avoid overheating. When applied to sensitive areas (e.g. face, neck, head) or very painful body parts, the duration of the application should be reduced and adjusted to accommodate individual requirements.
When must I not use the device?
Treatments with the NOVAFON sound wave device are not permitted:
· on open wounds / eczema (in the body region to be treated)
· if you suffer from arteriosclerosis (in the body region to be treated)
· if you currently suffer from epilepsy
· during pregnancy
· if you have implants (in the body region to be treated)
· if you have a pacemaker
· if you suffer from thrombosis (in the body region to be treated)
· if you have a brain pacemaker
· if you suffer from cardiac arrhythmias
· if you have a tumour
Side effects: Please note that in rare cases the following side effects may occur:
Increased pain / unpleasant sensation
Nausea / dizziness
Reflex / involuntary muscle contractions
Please discontinue the treatment immediately, if you experience any of these side effects. Please note that slight reddening and warming is not a cause for concern. This is a desired effect of local vibration therapy, which is caused by the increased blood flow.
