idromed5 GS / PS
The direct current (GS) iontophoresis-therapy is an internationally established and scientifically acknowledged treatment procedure. The hands or feet can be taken out of the basins during the therapy without the usually known “electric fence effect” (electric shock). The iontophoresis treatment with idromed® 5 GS is performed using hand- and foot-baths. The affected parts of the body are put in a treatment basin, filled with usual tap water. A weak DC electrical current is conducted through the baths by electrodes. This current is increased gradually to a certain intensity, so that the patient experiences a pleasant tingling sensation. The weak current inhibits the secretion of the sweat glands whithout damaging the glands themselves. In the armpits the current is applicated via wet sponge electrodes.
