For use on one foot only, the bipolar sock has a non-conductive strip in the middle so the electrical pathway created goes from the top of the foot to the bottom.
Note: snap connectors ARE included with this item.
Important! A Garmetrode Electrode is simply a garment with an electrode or multiple electrodes attached. All Garmetrode Electrodes require a TENS Unit or Muscle Stimulator power box to work!
Features: One size fits all! Easy access to electrode pins. Light-weight and cozy. Suitable for personal and home care, compatible with multiple TENS and electrotherapy devices. They offer stimulation without skin irritation or need for adhesives or gels, providing a great alternative to patients that suffer from allegic reactions to conventional E-Stim therapies. Electrotherapy Conductive Garments are made with high quality silver knit mesh material that is FDA approved and is more conductive than many other products on the market. Our conductive garments utilize a neo-foam material, which is more breathable alternative to neoprene, preventing excessive heat and perspiration.
The sock will supply electro stimulation from A Pulsed-Galvanic Stimulator or a TENS Unit. It should be worn slightly damp to improve current flow. Please do not contact with the other foot when both hands are using them. When finished, wash with water and air-dry.
Directions: Remove jewelry from area that will be covered by the garment. Wet wristband and remove excess by rolling in towel to leave garmetrode slightly damp. Insert pin from RED lead wire into snap adapter and attach that to the garment. Insert pin from the BLACK wire to the connector on a dispersive/grounding electrode. Place dispersive electrode on the appropriate portion of the body. Do not apply electrode in a manner that will allow current to pass or through the chest or head area. Do not place directly over the spine. Another option for the BLACK wire is to use a second garment, which will perform as a dispersive electrode. Turn stimulator on and adjust as directed by practitioner. Warnings: Product use should be in accordance with the directions and specification of the stimulation device. Improper use of this or any electrotherapy electrode may result in a patient burn. Should skin rash or irritation occur, discontinue use and consult your practitioner. The electrodes should be discarded and replaced if damaged or when comfort can no longer be obtained. If in doubt about the integrity for proper function of any electrode, replace before proceeding.
