Written by Dr. Joseph A. Gallo, DSc, AT, PT, this Clinical Guide to Electrotherapy and Therapeutic Ultrasound is a quick reference manual for practicing clinicians that also comes standard with every Richmar TheraTouch EX4 and CX4 Clinical Electrotherapy and Ultrasound Device. It is intended for qualified clinicians with prior training in the use of clinical electrotherapy, ultrasound, and combination therapy, and summarizes the appropriate and effective use of these modalities.
Included are sections that serve as a brief overview for each modality and guidelines for their clinical applications. In addition, a list of indications and contraindications are included, as well as, recommendations for application and treatment parameters.
The arrangement of information is presented for ease-of-use during clinical treatments and based on scientific literature and clinical experience. After each treatment, approach the relevant references, as provided.
These protocols are by no means intended to replace any existing textbook or research on electrotherapy, ultrasound, or combination therapy. It is suggested that practitioners also refer to relevant textbooks and research for a more widespread explanation of electrophysical agents. The electrophysical agents discussed in the manual are intended to serve as an adjunctive treatment to other therapeutic interventions, and the stand-alone passive use of electrophysical agents is discouraged.

Exceptions / non-returnable items
Your satisfaction with LSI International, and the products you purchase, is of the highest importance to us. We will gladly accept the return, or exchange, of most products up to 30 days from the date of purchase. The return of any allowed products that have been opened, used, or have broken seals are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Original shipping and handling charges incurred are always non-refundable and will be deducted from any refund for the cost of returned items, including in the event of a Free Shipping promotional incentive being applied to an order. Once a return is made, this promotional incentive is negated and the cost incurred must be accounted for. The restocking fee will only be waived in the case of all returned items being unopened, unused, and in their original packaging. Missing Instruction Manuals, Quick Reference Guides, and any other original literature from a returned product will result in an automatic $5.00 fee deducted from any refunds issued for the costs of those items.
If you are unsatisfied with a product, or find any defects due to manufacturing and/or workmanship, please contact us. Fulfillment mistakes that we make, resulting in the shipment of incorrect products to you, will also be accepted for return up to 30 days from the date of purchase. To make a return, or exchange, please contact Customer Service to get a Return Authorization number. We will be happy to provide the number and explain the procedure to you. Our process is simple - Clearly write the return authorization number on the outside of the product packaging so we can easily identify the order, ship to our warehouse, and we will credit the account used to make the purchase within 7 business days from the date we receive the returned items, or contact you to complete an exchange. Returns or exchanges cannot be accepted without a return authorization number. If your item was damaged during shipment, please contact us for assistance. Our customer service line is available M-F from 9am-5pm CST at (800)-832-0053, or feel free to email@example.com.
If you experience any issues, or technical difficulties, with a product you ordered, please contact Customer Service. This would be tied to a manufacturer warranty process and we will be more than happy to set up a technical support call for you.
Ultrasound Returns: Portable Ultrasound may only be returned if the product has NOT been used. Used Ultrasound devices may not be returned due to sanitary health reasons set by the FDA. If you are attempting to return the device due to defect or malfunction with performance, this would go through the warranty and we ask you to please contact us for a warranty claim.
Pillows and Cushions: Any pillows or cushions may only be returned if they are unused and in the same condition customer received the item with original packaging. We only sell our pillows and cushions brand new for sanitary reasons.
The fastest way to ensure you get what you want is to return the item you have, and once the return is accepted, make a separate purchase for the new item.
We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
