Just go to the Documentation Center main page and click the "Installed 
Add-Ons" link near the bottom of the right-hand column; now click the 
IMTEK item in the list of packages.  This will automatically rebuild the 
legacy Help Browser index.

(Actually, the behavior is just a bit annoying: at each new Mathematica 
session this will happen when you do the above, whether or not the 
legacy Help Browser files for the add-in have been updated or not.)
