What can I use instead of conductive gel?

What can I use instead of conductive gel?

If you are desperate and need a medium to assist with slippage and movement of the applicator probes, you could technically use something like water, aloe vera gel, serums, saline, ultrasound gel, ultrasonic gel. However, baby oil and vaseline should not be used as they do not conduct the current.

What is Spectra 360 electrode gel used for?

The Spectra 360 electrically conductive gel is designed to work with rubber-carbon electrodes. This Conductivity Gel works with ECG monitors, Tens Units, hospital monitoring equipment, medical equipment and pediatric monitors.

How do you make conductive gel?

Conductive gel: Just mix a tiny pinch of table salt, into your favorite gel (aloe vera gel is nice), and you are done (see link below). A little (5~10cc) can go a long way. It’s really not that critical if the salt amount is a bit more or a bit less.

Is conductive gel the same as ultrasound gel?

Ultrasound gels are considered a type of conductive medium used in a multitude of ultrasound diagnostic procedures and treatments. Ultrasound gel can be applied to many different areas of the body therefore being an essential tool in a variety of procedures, treatments and routine exams.

Is electrode gel necessary?

Electrode gel is essential when a doctor wants to apply electrodes to skin to read electrical impulses in the body. Whether you are interested in reading brain waves in an electroencephalogram-based study, or you want to record a prenatal electrocardiogram, electrode gel is vital.

Can I use aloe gel as conductive gel?

The Ideal Building Block for Conductivity There’s no doubt that the texture and moisturization of aloe vera gel is an ideal foundation for any good conductive gel. However, even though aloe vera also has the ability to conduct microcurrent, this is merely because aloe vera is 99% water, a naturally conductive material.

Is Spectra 360 electrode gel water based?

Spectra 360 is water soluble and can be removed using a moistened soft cloth.

Is glycerin a conductive gel?
