Strength, Pain & Recovery

There is no exact science or industry standard for electrode placement. These images serve as a guideline. You have to experiment to get the best results but the positions shown are highly recommended after 30 years of our own research.

*When the numbers match on the pad it means the pads are connected to the same wire.

How to Extend the life of your TENS Electrodes 

To get the most benefit from your electrodes, be sure your skin is free of dirt, oil and body lotion, make sure there is little to no hair in the desired treatment area. This will allow the Electrode to disperse the stimulation evenly. The lifespan of the electrode pads will vary depending on how often you use them and how you care for them. Keeping electrode pads clean and stored on the original sheet, and sealed in the ziplock bag after each use will help extend their lifespan. If your electrodes are no longer able to adhere to the skin properly it’s probably time to replace them.

EXTENDING ELECTRODE LIFE

The electrodes typically have a cloth or foam backing, and a sticky gel coating that conducts electricity.  Our electrodes are hypo-allergenic and constructed with a water-based material. Keep adhesive electrodes away from heat and cold. Electrode life is prolonged when they are stored at room temperature and in air tight zip lock bag.The lifespan of the gel pads will vary depending on the amount of use. Keeping gel pads clean and stored properly will extend their lifespan. The Electrodes should last you 20-25 sessions.

Pro Tip– If Gel appears dead try adding a drop of
water and store overnight
