Correct use of the fascia gun

The function of the fascia gun The fascia gun is to use the high-speed vibrating gun head to impact the tight body parts after the body exercise to help the muscles and soft tissues relax and recover, avoid fascia adhesion, and relieve muscle stiffness, stiffness and tightness. It can also promote blood circulation, dissipate creatine produced due to fatigue, and help relieve fatigue and soreness in the body. Using the fascia gun incorrectly will cause damage to the body, but using the fascia gun correctly will not cause harm to the body. For example, if the fascia gun is used in the joints, it is easy to cause joint damage; if it is used in the neck, chest and abdomen, armpits and other parts with thin, sensitive and concentrated internal organs, it is also easy to be injured; and the fascia gun is in It can be used for 5-10 minutes in the same position, but it will cause discomfort if used for a long time.

What is a medical device?

The definition of medical device in Chapter VIII Supplementary Provisions of the Regulations on the Supervision and Administration of Medical Devices (Order No. 650 of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China) refers to the instruments, equipment, appliances, in vitro diagnostic reagents and calibrators, materials and other materials that are directly or indirectly used in the human body. Similar or related items, including required computer software.

The use of medical devices is intended to achieve the following intended purposes:

  1. Prevention, diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and mitigation of diseases.
  2. Diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, mitigation, compensation for injury or disability.
  3. The study, substitution, modulation or support of anatomical or physiological processes.
  4. Support or maintenance of life.
  5. Pregnancy control.
  6. Provides information for medical or diagnostic purposes by examining samples from the human body.

What are the main household medical devices?

Medical devices that can be used for “home use” must also have a medical device product registration certificate. There are:
Home therapeutic equipment Far-infrared therapeutic equipment, magnetic therapy equipment, physiotherapy equipment, intermediate frequency therapeutic equipment, etc.
Household testing equipment: blood pressure detector, blood sugar detector, electronic thermometer, stethoscope, etc.
Household medical rehabilitation equipment: household oxygen generator, cervical and lumbar tractor, anti-pressure ulcer mattress, orthosis, etc.

What are the classification and characteristics of sphygmomanometers?

The mercury (mercury) sphygmomanometer is durable, stable and accurate in measuring blood pressure; it is completely dependent on human subjectivity, has poor repeatability, and its accuracy depends on the experience of clinicians. External noise interferes with the identification of “Korotkoff sounds”, which is inconvenient to carry.

The electronic sphygmomanometer does not need to master Korotkoff sound auscultation, it is small and light, easy to use, easy to master, low noise, no mercury leakage, suitable for home self-test or measurement on business trips. It has high sensitivity and poor anti-interference, and is easily affected by factors such as the subject’s body position, upper arm position, and cuff wrapping position.

The barometer type sphygmomanometer is small in size, has no liquid, is easy to carry, and has no mercury leakage problem, but it is difficult to ensure that the pressure measurement data is always accurate. It must be regularly calibrated with the mercury sphygmomanometer, and the reading is usually low.
