We are often asked about the on/off performance of our electrodes. The answer is very simple: The durability of our
electrodes depends entirely on the application, storage, humidity and care on the part of the user.
Application: Before each electrode application, skin must be cleaned with water and soap to remove any lotions, skin
oils, make-up and dead skin. Any debris on the skin will be transferred to the gel of the electrode thereby compromising
the integrity of the gel’s adhesiveness. Therefore, a clean surface is the most important factor in the number of applications
for an electrode.
Storage: After every use the electrode must be returned to the “ON” side of the Mylar liner, and placed in the original,
re-sealable package to prevent loss of moisture. The electrodes should be stored at a temperature that would be comfortable
for a human being, or somewhere between 41.0° and 80.6° F. with humidity at 35-50%.
DO NOT: Store in freezer/refrigerator, leave in extreme heat, submerge in water, or leave outside of the package.
Care: After usage, if the electrode picks up small amounts of debris you may use a drop of water on your finger to
gently rub the debris off the electrode. Most important to the care of the electrode is applying it to a clean surface with each use.
DO NOT: Use soap, alcohol, submerge in water, or scrub with abrasive material.
The number of applications depends entirely on the proper application, storage and care by the user. The durability of the
electrodes depends on the adhesiveness of the gel and its adhesiveness depends on keeping the gel clean, hydrated and free
from foreign debris.
