XPDS 4|24: Mode Descriptions

HiDow how to kneading
Mode 1: Kneading: EMS

Simulates the thumbs, fingers, and palms of a real massage therapist. The sensation should feel like a vibration. It focuses on hypertension and stress and helps to break that down, returning to full range of motion and flexibility.

HiDow how to acupressure
Mode 2: Acupressure: EMS

A much more rapid and focused pulse that focuses in on any knot or adhesion in the body. It puts enough pressure on it to break it down and release any acidic (lactic) content within.

HiDow how to tapping
Mode 3: Tapping: TENS

Simulates a second heartbeat. By tapping the muscle, you increase the body’s natural blood flow and oxygen supply to the target area. This also helps flush any inflammation or swelling in the target area.

HiDow how to cupping
Mode 4 Cupping: TENS

This will reach in, grab, and stretch the muscle. Help to lengthen and broaden it, the release it as it sets it back. This will help to increase the flexibility and mobility of the muscle.

HiDow how to hot stone
Mode 5: Hot Stone: TENS

Relaxation mode. This simulates a regular manual rolling massage helping the soft tissue to release and relax.

Mode 6: Shuffle: TENS
Mode 6: Shuffle: TENS

This is a combination of modes 1,4,5. This is a great mode to use when cooling down from an exercise.

HiDow how to elbow pressing
Mode 7: Elbow Pressing

This mode simulates the massage therapist by pressing on the body with the elbow. It is designed to relieve muscular spasm pains in the shoulder and back.

HiDow how to trigger point
Mode 8: Trigger Point

This simulates a massage therapist pressing the trigger points along the meridians with fingertips. It is used to relieve fatigue, keep healthy and energetic, and to relax tendons.

HiDow how to reflexology
Mode 9: Reflexology: TENS

This mode has been designed for foot accessories. It simulates a reflexology session using several different stimulation patterns.

HiDow how to auricular therapy
Mode 10: Auricular Therapy: TENS

When used properly with the ear clip attachment, this mode simulates alpha waves in the brain, which have been known to help sleep patterns, behavior, and endorphin release. Also, it will relax the suboccipital muscles and promote vaso dilation, helping with migraines and headaches.

HiDow how to contract and hold
Mode 11: Contract and Hold: EMS

This mode is the longest contraction on the machine. It is designed to simulate a flexing movement to help build muscle tissue.

HiDow how to ramping wave
Mode 12: Ramping wave: TENS

This mode is designed to start out with number 3, tapping. It will get faster and deeper into the belly of the muscle as it continues until it goes to a fully facilitated contraction. Then it will allow the muscle to release. This has been used to increase endurance and build fatigue resistance.


Micro Current is well known as “human bioelectricity”. This mode is to prevent and treat diseases by using the current to increase microcirculation to the area. This can help with swelling, joint relief, muscle pain relief, and performance. Because microcurrent is subsensory there is often no sensation felt.

Mode 14 – Warming-up Exercise: EMS

This mode is designed to simulate cardio exercises like jogging to warm up the body, which can increase muscular flexibility to reduce the occurrence of sports injuries and increase the muscles’ elasticity.

Mode 15 – Apparatus Exercises: EMS

This mode is deigned to simulate exercises with equipment to enhance the performance of the muscles, which can improve muscular definition, increase flexibility and decrease the injuries & muscle pain.

Mode 16 – Relaxation: EMS

This mode is designed to stretch & relax muscles, which can eliminate fatigue and prevent the muscle spasms.

HiDow how to muscular warm up
Mode 17: Muscular Warm Up: EMS

This mode is designed to increase the temperature of muscle ligaments and joints. It can extend the range and ability of joints and ligaments, also can reduce muscle viscosity and improve muscular contraction and flexibility. Muscular warm-up is a key to improve the quality of training and prevent injury of sports.

HiDow how to muscular reinforcement
Modes 18 & 19: Muscular Reinforcement: EMS

This mode can improve the quality of training, help to prevent sports injuries, and strengthen the muscle. It can also be used to provide a suitable physical exercise which can accelerate the blood circulation of injured or atrophic muscle tissues and promote the protein synthesis so as to accelerate the rehabilitation of muscular atrophy.

HiDow how to muscular relaxation
Mode 20: Muscular Relaxation: EMS

This mode is designed to stimulate muscles, release tension and promote overall well being through simulating an all-embracing massage.

HiDow how to tapping and kneading
Modes 21-24: Recover, Mixed Recovery, Strengthening, Conditioning: EMS

Different times and burst patterns which use muscle confusion and isometric contractions all of which will have a slightly different affect.
