Electrodes FAQs

Free electrodes that are included in your TENS unit may lose their adhesiveness in the long run. Syrtenty electrodes are considered great replacements because of their self-adhering feature that sticks on without having to use any gel or liquid, and their universal compatibility. Syrtenty pigtail electrode pads can be used with most TENS unit models.
Self-adhering electrodes naturally lose their stickiness after some time. Nevertheless, Syrtenty electrodes are made of high-quality gel to ensure that they still stick well even after using multiple times. All you have to do is clean and store them properly.
If the company fails to deliver your order on the date indicated on the detail page, the shipping cost will be refunded. This is, however, only applicable to orders that meet the Guaranteed Accelerated Delivery qualifications.
Your package would come with easy-to-understand information and instructions on how to use the electrode pads. The company will also email you the instructions on the proper and safe use of the electrodes. Syrtenty also has a website where you can find further instructions. It is also encouraged that you contact them should you have any concerns.
Although Syrtenty electrodes are made of highly adhesive gel, they’re very easy to peel off. Just follow the instructions carefully and you’ll be able to remove them with ease.
The larger pads, such as the 4.5” x 6” butterfly electrode pads, are excellent to use for wider areas like the legs and they can also ensure precise stimulation of the affected spots providing greater pain relief.
Syrtenty electrodes are placed in resealable, double-seal packaging, so they don’t fall off and get damaged. Should you receive defective products due to mishandling during the delivery, the company will replace your order the soonest time possible.
You can re-use the Syrtenty electrodes for up to 10 – 15 times with the proper removal, care, and storage after use.
It can be used specifically on the face, hand, back, and leg, depending on the size of the electrodes.
It can be used for TENS, EMS and IF units using pigtail pin-type Syrtenty electrodes.
Syrtenty electrodes are available in the following sizes and shapes: 1” round, 1.5” x 13” strip, 2”x4” rectangle, 2” square, 2.75” round, and 4.5” x 6” butterfly. Click here for more choices of Syrtenty Electrodes.
The areas where the electrodes will be placed must be thoroughly cleansed with soap and water. It would also be ideal to use scrub gel. Never use alcohol or apply lotion on the areas prior to placing the electrode pads. Allow the areas to air dry before putting the electrodes.
You can remove the electrode pads from your skin by slightly bending the corner of the liner. You can then rub your thumb in an upward motion across the edge of the electrode. This will help loosen the gel. If you’re using pigtails or those electrodes with pre-attached wires, never attempt pulling on the wire when removing as this will damage the product. You can instead tug on the edge of the electrode and peel it off from the skin.
Syrtenty electrodes are latex-free. If irritation occurs, just discontinue use and consult your physician.
Electrode pads must be returned to the air-tight packaging and must be placed in a cool, dry place not exposed to bright light or any extremes in temperature.
Electrodes don’t have to be cleaned, but you might want to put drops of water to keep the adhesive fresh. All you have to do is to cover the conductive surface of each electrode pad with a plastic liner after using, and put it back in its air-tight packaging.
It is normal to find slight reddening of the skin after taking off the electrodes. This, however, should be gone a few hours after the therapy. If it still persists, consult your doctor. Syrtenty electrodes are Latex-free.
If the electrode gets flimsy, all you have to do is rehydrate it with water. Rub the gel surface of the electrode with a few drops of water. This helps improve its adhesiveness.

BED/CHAIR ALARM and LONG TERM SENSOR PAD FAQs

The bed alarm is connected to a pressure and weight-sensitive pad and whenever the patient or the elderly tries to get out of bed, the changes in pressure or weight exerted on the sensor pad triggers the alarm. The alarm tone can be a typical loud noise or a musical alert to the tune of “It’s a Small World”. This would alert the caregiver that the patient is trying to get out of bed. It is also suggested that you place the sensor pad near the shoulder blades of the patient so you’ll right away be warned even before the patient can get up. It helps raise the awareness level of the caregiver on the patient’s mobility, thus diminishes chances of falling.
All you have to do is hook the alarm to the long term sensor pad. The sensor pad is placed under the patient’s buttocks or shoulder blades then set the alarm.
Sensor pads for the bed and the chair alarms have different sizes. The sensor pad for the bed alarm has the following dimensions: Length 29 inches; Width 7.5 inches and Length 15 inches; Width 7.5 inches for the chair alarm.
Syrtenty bed and chair alarms have free batteries included but in case you want an extra battery, you should use a 9.0 volt one.
If you don’t like frequently changing batteries, you may opt to look for an AC adapter for the alarm.
You don’t have to worry if someone leaks on the sensor pad as this is thoroughly sealed and is impermeable to fluids.
The alarm is loud enough for you to hear even if you are in a different room. You also have the option to adjust the volume of the alarm.

CERVICAL TRACTION COLLAR FAQs

Cervical traction collar is indicated for conditions like degenerative discs, tension headaches, pinched nerves, neck, shoulder and pain, osteoarthritis, and stiff muscles.
It relieves certain medical conditions primarily by widening the posterior longitudinal ligaments. The traction force increases the diameter of the invertebral foramen and eases the compression of the nerve roots which rules out other neurologic deficits as well as decreases pain.
It is made of high-quality materials and its soft contact fabric is perfect especially for those who have sensitive skin. It also comes with a notch where you can rest your chin and a Velcro strap to ensure a snug fit.
Anyone can use the traction collar. Its use may range from professional to home. Although this inflatable traction collar is pretty similar to the “Over the Door” traction device, this is portable so you can carry it with you virtually anywhere, whether you’re at home browsing through the web or on a long road trip.
People who are known to have serious pre-existing medical conditions, especially those that limit mobility such as rheumatoid arthritis, vascular disorders and structural deformity due to tumor formation, are suggested to consult their physician first.
It’s pretty easy to use the traction collar. Just place the traction device around your neck and adjust the diameter to a snug fit with the Velcro straps. Slowly start inflating using the pump. Continue inflating the traction device until optimum comfort is achieved. You may remove the inflating pump for comfort. Ideally, start with light traction then gradually increase traction strength.
The ideal diameter for traction application ranges from 28 cm to 48 cm. The angle may also be adjusted alongside.
Traction application should last about 20 minutes per day and this should already help alleviate the symptoms.
One of the ways to extend the life of the device is by storing it properly. When not in use, the device must be deflated. However, it is also recommended that you store it with a little air.
The traction collar is relatively safe to use. However, it would be great to consult your physician first to ascertain that you have no pre-existing disease that can be a contraindication for traction application.
