UltraStim Wire Self-Adhesive Electrodes 5cm x 5cm (4x)
What are UltraStim Wire Self-Adhesive Electrodes Suitable For?
UltraStim Wire Self-Adhesive Electrodes are TENS electrodes suitable for
any type of TENS machine and all areas of the body.
The self-adhesive coating on the electrodes allows the user to attach
the electrodes to the skin, straight out of the box, without applying
additional adhesive. While the electrodes are suitable for multiple use,
up to 5 -6 times, additional adhesive may be required for consecutive
The wire design ensures that the TENS current is evenly distributed
throughout the electrode, providing sufficient current to skin, this is
in contrast to standard TENS electrodes where current may be
concentrated in the centre of the pad and cause hotspots.
The square design of the electrode is the most popular type of electrode
on the market as it offers the most practicality in terms of size and
shape. It is most suitable electrode for applying TENS stimulation to
areas such as the shoulder, neck and arms.
How to Use UltraStim Wire Self-Adhesive Electrodes Electrodes
To start attach the electrodes to the TENS machine so that current can
flow through to the pads.
Using electrode adhesive, stick the pads to the skin so that they are
symmetrical to each other, the distance between the pads should cover
the painful area, which will allow stimulation to relieve the symptoms
of pain in the area.
The distance between the pads will affect the level of stimulation that
is felt, having the pads in closer proximity will increase the intensity
of the current. The user can adjust the TENS machine current intensity
to suit their preference regardless of the proximity of the pads.
The final step is to turn the TENS machine on, it is recommended the
user starts the TENS machine on with a low level of current and
increases the current incrementally until a comfortable and effective
stimulation is reached.
You can use 2 or 4 pads at once with the TENS machine, you can use these
to stimulate a large area of the body or to stimulate to smaller areas
of the body at the same time.
The UltraStim Wire Self-Adhesive Electrodes are shipped in quantities of
The pads are 5cm in length and 5cm in width.
