ELECTRODE PADS

I already have a TENS unit that comes with free electrodes. Can I use Syrtenty electrodes for replacement?

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.

I had trouble sticking my old electrodes to my skin. Will I have the same problem with Syrtenty electrodes?

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.

BED and CHAIR FALL PREVENTION ALARM 

How does Syrtenty bed alarm and long term sensor pad prevent the user from falling?

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.
