Connect Your System 

After installing the MyoVision Software, connect your PhysioMonitor/SoloVision to your computer with the included USB cable. (Note that the PhysioMonitors require both the AC adapter and the USB cable.) The SoloVision(s) only require the USB cable - unless you are using a ThermoVision or a FlexVision with your SoloVision.

Setting Up Your ScanVision


Check the Power Switch (1) to turn the device to turn on, the Power Switch must be set to the On position. The Power Switch should only be adjusted when the device is being transported or shipped to prevent the device from accidentally draining its own battery. If you are not using the device, it will automatically power itself off.

To power on the device, you will want to push the white Start Button (2), the Power and Connect Status lights (3) should turn on. You can also hold down the Start button for 10 seconds to turn the device off.

When you need to charge the device, plug the USB charging cable (included in your system if it was purchased directly from MyoVision) into the Charge Jack (4). The Charge Indicator will light up an amber color when the device is first plugged in and turn green when it finishes the charge process.

MyoVision Wirefree devices transmit data to the hub unit using a bound connection. If you purchased your ScanVision with a hub (SoloVision or PhysioMonitor), the devices should already be bound. If the Connect Status light is blinking red or you need to bind the ScanVision to another device, use the Connect Switch (6) and the instructions found in the guides listed below.

After every exam check the electrodes (6) on your ScanVision device for any signs of cracks, worn metal, or corrosion. As a general rule, we recommend replacing your electrodes each month, or after you finish a jar of QuickScan Pads. If you do not use your device regularly, regardless of the time frame, if you notice your electrodes are no longer matte grey, but rather a lighter silver color and a bit shiny, then it's time to replace them.  


If you purchased a set of ScanVision scanners directly from MyoVision, one scanner will have a yellow Left sticker (shown below). The device with the yellow Left sticker will be used to scan the left-side of the patient's back, the other device should be used on the right-side.

If you purchased a single scanner from MyoVision, the device will NOT have a Left sticker.

Setting Up Your DynaVision


When placing batteries into the DynaVision, make sure to put the red ribbon underneath the batteries before snapping them in. By pulling up on the red ribbon you can more easily remove the batteries from their clip.

Once the batteries have been installed, put the battery cover back on. Locate the Power Switch (1) and make sure it's set to the On position. To power on the device press the white Start Button (2). When the device powers on the Battery Status (3) and Connect Status (4) lights should light up. 

The last step is to get DynaROM certified. To get certified go MyoVision.com and select the DynaROM certification under the Training tab.

If the DynaVision was purchased directly from MyoVision, it will arrive already bound to the SoloVision or PhysioMonitor. However, if you need still need to bind your DynaVision, you can use the Connect Switch (4) and follow the guides below.

Setting Up Your FlexVision


To setup your FlexVision device, set the Power Switch (1) to ON. Then press the red Start Buttons (2) to power on the device. When the device powers on the Power (3) and Connect Status (4) indicators will Light up.

Each FlexVision device is programmed to be used in the right or the left hand. When you purchase your FlexVisions directly from MyoVision, the left hand device will have a yellow sticker between the two red Start Buttons.

By default if you purchase your system directly from MyoVision it will come bound to your SoloVision or PhysioMonitor hub. After the software is installed and the hub is plugged in, the Connect Status light should go from blinking red to solid green. (You may need to turn the device OFF and back ON after the hub is plugged in and software is installed.)

If the device is not bound to its hub, or if you need to bind your FlexVision to a different hub, click the link below that matches the hub unit you're trying to bind to.

To charge your FlexVision, plug the USB charger into the Charge Jack (1) on the side of the device. When the device is first plugged in the Charge Indicator (2) will turn amber. After the charge cycle is complete the light will turn green.

Once your FlexVision is setup, the next step is to get certified with your FlexVision by clicking the link below:
FlexUltra ROM Certification

Setting Up Your PhysioMonitor


First, plug the AC Adapter into the back of the device in the DC IN (1) port. Then, flip the Power Switch (3) to the ON position. Plug the USB cable into the back of the PhysioMonitor in the USB to PC port (2), and into your computer. Once the device is on and the USB cable is connected to both the PhysioMonitor and the computer, the Power (4) and Computer Connect (5) lights should both be green.

Note that if you are using a desktop computer, it is highly recommended that you plug the USB cable into the USB ports on the back of the computer.

If device is not connecting properly, check that the drivers for the PhysioMonitor hardware were installed properly. This process is called "enumerating." Depending on the speed of your computer the PhysioMonitor can take up to 5 minutes to enumerate.

To check that the drivers were installed and the hardware was recognized, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. When the Control Panel opens, select the View Devices and Printers option.
  3. If the drivers were installed properly the following devices should be listed under the Unspecfied category.

If you're experiencing issues getting the drivers to install properly, check if the port your using is a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port (most computers mark the USB 3.0 ports by making the port blue in color). The PhysioMonitor requires a USB 2.0 connection.

Setting Up Your SoloVision


To connect your SoloVision to your computer, insert the USB cable into the USB to PC port (1) on the back of the SoloVision and the other end of the USB cable into your computer. SoloVision units receive power directly from the PC and do not come with a power cable.

Once the SoloVision is connected to your computer, the power indicator (2) on the front of the SoloVision will turn green. 

Follow the steps below if you are having trouble getting your computer to recognize the SoloVision:

  1. Make sure the USB cable is fully plugged into the SoloVision and the PC.
  2. Make sure the USB cable is plugged into a USB 2.0 port and NOT a USB 3.0 port.
  3. When the SoloVision is first plugged into the PC it will need to install the drivers for the SoloVision. This process happens automatically and is called enumerating. It can take up to 5 minutes for the SoloVision to fully enumerate.
  4. Open up the Control panel then click on the View devices and printers option.
  5. Once Devices and Printers opens, there should be an icon under Unspecified category with a name that matches the type of device the SoloVision connects to. In the below example, the SoloVision that is connected to the PC can only bind to ScanVision devices that is why the Unspecified device is a ScanVision.

    In the video below David Marcarian demonstrates how to set-up a SoloVision.

How to Connect a VisionPort2

Backup Your MyoVision Database

The MyoVision software does not backup any data automatically. It is up to the MyoVision user to create a backup of their database manually and save the backup file securely using the recommended 3-Tier Backup Procedure.  A database backup file is a copy all of the data currently in your patient database saved as a single file. This backup file can then be transferred to a flash drive, computer, server, etc., or restored. Creating and updating a backup of your database should be done on a routine basis.

We recommend a 3-Tier Backup Procedure where a copy of your backup file in is stored and saved in the following 3 locations:

  1. Locally: on the hard drive of the computer that is running the MyoVision software.
  2. Externally: On a different device within your office. This could be another computer, flash drive, server or an external hard drive. 
  3. Off-site: Such as a cloud storage (Google Drive, iCloud, etc.) or an external hard drive that is not kept on site. If you are using an external hard drive or flash drive as your off-site backup, make sure that the hard drive or flash drive is not stored in the same building where the computer that runs MyoVision.
