Just wanted to update others on this topic, when i first asked a question in this forum regarding gel electrodes maintenance, i was already using gel electrodes size 50x90 for 4-5 application, and after some good tips i tried to apply water drops on one pair of electrodes, and gel for carbon electrodes (water based, same as US gel), that came with tens unit on the other pair. What i noticed is that when i apply gel over electrodes in small circular motion with finger, making sure i cover every part of electrode, the next day they are more hydrated and they stick very well, compared to other pair where i used few drops of water and also spread it in circular motion over the whole area of electrode. Currently i am on 10th application and electrodes where i applied gel look very hydrated, gel stick well and the el. current is deployed through them well. Before using this method i had problem with gel electrodes after 6-7 applications. I am using 1 set of electrodes per patient so as soon as next one comes in, i open a new pack.
Thank you all for participating.
