This product has been retired and kept here for reference.

These body electrodes were originally manufactured for use in electric therapy. While we can’t condone the use of these in medical therapy, they can be useful for hobby applications. Each electrode is essentially just a conductive pad coated with adhesive gel and terminated on the opposite side with a snap connector. These electrodes are sold in pairs along with an electrode lead with a snap connector for each at one end and a 2.5mm jack at the other.

Although we have no information available regarding the voltage and current tolerance of these electrodes, it’s probably safe to say that they will handle much more power than you would ever want to conduct through soft tissue!

The adhesive is a gel similar to what you might find on Pasties or those sticky hand toys you (try to) win at arcades and carnivals. After a few applications, the gel collects contaminants and becomes less adhesive, rinsing them with water will help it regain its adhesive properties.

Note: This product is NOT a medical device and is not intended to be used as such or as an accessory to such.
