Viterion Vitacast Quick Guide-Patient Instructions for Use

  1. 1. IMPORTANT: Read this prior to operating the Vitacast 1000. If you have questions on how to use the Vitacast, connecting your health devices or on your health condition, contact your Care Coordinator. Always use the Vitacast as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Getting Started with the Viterion Vitacast 1000SM • 1 Vitacast 1000SM touch screen tablet • 1 power adapter, 5 volt, 3.0 A for 120V, 60 Hz AC • 1 touch screen stylus. You may use either your fingertip or the stylus to press the screen buttons. Contact your healthcare practitioner if the contents are missing or damaged. Place the Vitacast on a stable surface, such as a table, near an electrical outlet. Attach the power adapter to the round outlet at the back of the tablet (marked 5V) and plug the other end into the electrical outlet. This will also charge the Vitacast’s internal battery. When fully charged after two hours, the Vitacast can be disconnected from its power adapter and used portably for approximately 30 minutes. It is recommended that the Vitacast remain connected to electrical power for everyday use, even when the power is turned off. 1 Check package contents Press the Power On/Off button in the lower right hand corner. The Vitacast will start up and the Welcome Screen will appear. Ensure that the Vitacast is connected to cellular service. You’ll see a green light indicator at the lower left of the tablet indicating that it has automatically connected to service. Press the Tutorial button on the screen. This is a video which explains the features of the Vitacast 1000 in a few minutes. It’s available to you at any time. At the end of the Tutorial, the Welcome Screen will reappear. Press the Start App button on the screen. You may also skip the Tutorial and start your program. IMPORTANT: If no network is available, the light will remain red and you will see an error message, “Fail to connect to the server.” If this occurs, try another location where service may be stronger. If you continue to receive this message, contact your Care Coordinator. 2 Power on and connect Enter your passcode (provided by your doctor or Care Coordinator). This ensures that your unit and your information is secure. If you enter it incorrectly, the screen will prompt you to enter it again. 3 Log in Step 2 Step 3
