CRYSTAL ELECTRODE GEL IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL ELECTRO-MEDICAL PROCEDURES e.g. ECG, ECG, EEG, EMG, TENS and EMS.

It is mostly used by radiologists, gynecologists and cardiologists.

The Director of Provincial Hospital and Health Services evaluated the high and the medium viscosity CRYSTAL ELECTRODE GEL and declared it “an excellent quality product”. It was approved for hospital use and granted the State Hospital Contract. Currently it is being used by many local state and private institutions as well as private practitioners nation wide.

CRYSTAL ELECTRODE GEL offers good sliding without adherence loss and provides optimal contact between electrode and skin. The GEL works by wetting the skin (or surface) and thereby reducing skin resistance and improving electric conductivity.

Specific formulations [e.g. very high viscosity gel] can also be prepared to meet user requirements.
