Electrotherapy Skin Products

Various gels and creams are specially designed to be used with electrotherapy. Many a time, sensitive skin forms blisters and sores on the surface when one uses electrotherapy. These gels and creams provide a soothing cool effect on the skin and prevent the formation of such blisters. Many gels are conductive and thus form a nice conducting surface that enhances the therapeutic effects. Electrodes cannot be directly attached to the skin since the body oils spoil the conductive surface of the electrodes. Hence gels are required to form a layer over the body and prevent the body oils from affecting the electrodes thus increasing the life of the electrodes.
