Animal Therapy Systems is the exclusive distributor of the Animal Calibrated Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System. Presently, there are only two calibrations of these instruments available which are human calibrated instruments, and animal calibrated instruments. While others may tell you that it does not matter which calibration you use on animals, that is absolutely not true. This is due to the fact that the biofeedback system being used by the human calibrated instruments is neither correct nor precise when interacting with animal tissue. The results and responses will not be nearly as effective as when the animal calibrated instruments are utilized, therefore the treatment is undoubtedly compromised when using a human calibrated instrument on animal tissue. The animal calibrated Acuscope and Myoscope instruments far surpass the human instruments in their ability to fine tune the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nervous system of the animal. The correct calibration is necessary in order to obtain faster, far-superior results with this therapy system. These instruments have been specifically designed to interface with animal anatomy as well as their unique metabolism and physiology. In order to treat patients properly and optimize results, the calibration is a very important factor. This factor should definitely be taken into consideration when choosing a Certified Animal Acuscope Therapist to work on your animal, or when choosing to become an Animal Acuscope Therapist yourself.

From the manufacturers' website:
A technical explanation for the importance of using correctly calibrated instruments.
The instrument calibration is very important factor due to remarkable differences which exist within the distribution of the electrical current between human and animal subjects. In the collected measurement of bio-impedance from cross sectional area of excitation points can show up to 30%-90% in difference (depending on the breed of animal) caused by dynamic changes in pulsatile blood flow to organs, arterial pulse waveforms and respiration. This means that if the instrument is not calibrated for animal use, the impedance window becomes too large and the constant current stage of the excitation source will not be able to supply enough voltage to keep the signal constant. This will result in lower than expected values, noisy "pulsatile" imprecise and indistinct data signals. We recommend Acuscope users to calibrate instruments for use in animal therapy.
