Ultrasound gel

Why use that gooey looking and messy gel, why do practitioners use it for ultrasounds and electrode placement? Why use electrode and ultrasound gel? The answer is pretty simple and there is a factual foundation behind it.

The low electrical pulses from the electrode or the ultrasound waves don’t travel easy through air, so any air between the electrode or ultrasound device will create a problem and result in an unsuccessful transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation or ultrasound therapy. Also, dry skin tends to have tiny pockets of air on it.

The solution? Gel. But not just any gel a special gel that will not evaporate easily and that will stay consistent during the electrode or ultrasound therapy.

Its large container holds the gel secure after being opened and has an 8 oz application bottle that is user friendly. Why use electrode and ultrasound gel?
