The conductive gel is used with electrotherapy machines like TENS and EMS units. The highly conductive formula of these gels helps enhance the electrotherapy transmission, and the muscles will receive stronger signals making the therapy more effective. These electrotherapy gels also protect the skin from burning sensations associated with electrotherapy machines.
When it comes to using TENS, EMS, and ultrasound machines or other electrotherapy machines, using the right gel or lotion is key to getting good results and ensuring patient comfort and safety. HPFY supplies not only good-quality electrotherapy units but also accessories like conductive gels for effective therapy sessions. We offer electrode gels and ultrasound gels from top brands at affordable prices.
Conductive gel is applied to the skin before placing electrodes. The gel works as a coupling agent to increase the electrical impulse dispersion. The electric impulses go into the skin and tissues to give effective pain relief. Conductive gel is also used to moisturize electrode pads while not in use. The amount of moisture in the electrode pad is related to its adhesion. As the pads start to lose their moisture, the adhesion is also reduced. Apply electrode gel to the pads to make them sticky again, and also apply the gel before storing them to increase the moisture content and adhesion of the pad.
The ultrasound gel is a conductive medium used in both diagnostic ultrasound and therapeutic ultrasound. The gel creates a bond between the skin and the ultrasound probe. The sound waves cannot pass through the air, and the gel prevents extra airspace between the transducer and the skin.
While ultrasound gel is preferred for diagnostic ultrasound, ultrasound lotion is for a therapeutic ultrasound due to its rich and moisturizing formula. At the beginning of the ultrasound therapy, ultrasound gel is applied to the treatment area of the patient’s body. Then the probe from the ultrasound machine will carefully glide the gel across the patient’s body. The gel helps keep air from coming between the skin and the transducer and helps penetrate the ultrasound waves to the tissues.
In diagnostic ultrasound, the ultrasound gel helps ultrasound waves pass into a person’s body to display clear images of the organs. The gel also acts as lubrication material to move the probe smoothly during the procedure.
