No. The ACTitouch system should be applied immediately upon waking and be worn at all times during the day except when bathing/showering and when driving or operating machinery. The system should be removed just prior to going to bed. Recharge the unit for at least four hours by connecting it to the power adapter and the AC outlet. Consult with your health care provider for other nighttime compression options.
It takes approximately 3 ½ minutes to fully inflate the ACTitouch system. Stay seated during the inflation of the sleeve.
Shut down the device and restart it after you ensure it is properly fitted on your leg.
When you move, the pressure in the chambers change according to the way you shift their weight as you walk. The pumping noise is the system automatically increasing or decreasing the air to consistently maintain pressures required for therapy.
Plug in the AC power adapter to the sleeve and the wall outlet then press and hold the ON/OFF button for two seconds to start the Intermittent Compression mode.
The ACTitouch system has a “mute” function that you can select for up to two hours at a time. If you need to have the system quiet for longer, press the mute button after two hours to resume the mute feature. Limit the time that you use the mute function, because the control unit will not adjust the pressure, potentially impacting treatment success.
The controller should be charged at least four hours every day. A green light illuminates on the charger to indicate when it is fully charged.
