Traditional Carbon Rubber, Tape and Gel Uses a carbon rubber pad,
adhesive tape patch, and tube of gel.
Older method, can be messy to apply.
Basically is carbon, tape and gel all
rolled up in one piece..
2-3 day continuous wear, like a band-aid.
Can be worn in shower or bath.
Aggressive adhesive patch.
Skin irritation is common.
Using adhesive remover will ease removal
Reusable Electrodes 7-20 days of repeated wear,
depending on type of solid gel.
Can be reapplied over and over.
Can not be worn in shower or bath.
More choices to choose from.
Using Clean Cote skin prep will help
electrodes stick better.
Clean skin is very important! Oily,
flaky, or dirty skin will prevent gel
from sticking and will shorten the length
Conductive Garment Information
Conductive Garment electrodes are neuro-stimulation electrodes
that are made of woven conductive fibers, usually silver and
another woven fiber, and are available in the shape of conventional
electrode pads or sewn into a wearable garment such as a glove,
sock, sleeve, or even wraps. They can be a great alternative
for patients who have skin reactions to conventional pre-gelled
electrodes, who have difficulty keeping conventional electrodes
covering the treatment area, or who need much larger stimulation
coverage throughout the entire garment area.
Medi-Stim is proud to offer the new Stim-U-Wear™ conductive garments for comfortable electrotherapy stimulation to areas that are not effectively treated by traditional adhesive electrodes. These form-fitting garments made of highly conductive antibacterial silver yarns, provide stimulation over the entire surface area of the garment, eliminating hot spots often found in other garments. Stim-U-Wear™ conductive garments offer high-end quality for a low-end price.
Electro-Mesh™ Garments by Prism Medical are
made in the USA using the highest level of silver thread count than
any other brand in the market. They are also made with patented
Dupont® Dacron™ fibers, which provides body heat retention
(for increased circulation), tensile strength, prolonged elasticity,
and endurance to body chemicals and washings. Unlike other
brands that claim one size fits all, our Electro-Mesh™ garments are
available in various sizes to accommodate your various patients’ measurements.
It is very important that the garment fits snug to the
skin to avoid gaps between the skin and the garment which could
lead to improper and uncomfortable stimulation.
Conductive garment socks and gloves were originally designed for
use with high-volt pulsed galvanic stimulators to effectively increase
circulation to the extremities, but they can also be used with TENS
or muscle stimulators, too.
Conditions such as carpal tunnel
syndrome, diabetic foot neuropathy, arthritis, poor circulation,
tennis elbow, and tendonitis may find greater relief from using these
The Silver-Thera™ Garments are two electrodes sewn together into
one piece for easier application. They combine a sleeve garment
electrode with a glove or sock electrode with a non-conductive
material stitched in between to separate the two electrodes. A
prosthetic sock electrode is also available for amputee patients
suffering from phantom limb pain or to speed recovery from
FDA-approved and Medicare reimbursable. Suggested HCPC Code: E0731. Hand-washable. Please
