Mobius Therapy electrode pads can be used 15 – 20 times before the CBD is exhausted. For longest pad life you will need to perform a little maintenance. If your Mobius Therapy pads aren’t sticky anymore, fear not. Use the following information to help get the maximum use from your Mobius Therapy electrode pads.
CARE FOR YOUR SKIN
Before each use, you should clean your skin with gentle soap and water. This helps remove any of the natural oils that may take away some of the stickiness on the electrode pads. As an alternative, you can use alcohol wipes as a pre-electrode skin prep.
CLEAN ELECTRODE PADS
After each use, care for your TENS electrode pads by cleaning them with a moist cloth. If your pads are less sticky than they used to be, it may be because of dirt or oil. Be sure you are using a towel or a washcloth, and not something that can leave residue like a paper towel.
HYDRATE PADS WITH DROPS OF WATER
Sometimes just getting the electrode pads moist can help bring back some of the stickiness. Don’t saturate them but do add a couple drops of water or lightly wipe with a wet towel.
GENTLY BRUSH TOP LAYER OF HYDROGEL
Using a clean toothbrush, gently brush your electrode pads in one direction, as though you were brushing a pet. This will help to expose some of the electrode’s stickiness and sub-layers.
ROTATE YOUR ELECTRODE PADS
One of the reasons why electrode pads stop sticking to the skin as well is because they can become oversaturated. It’s mostly ok to use a TENS Unit as often as you need. However, it’s a good idea to give your skin a break from time to time. The same thing goes for electrode pads, which need to breathe just as much as your skin does. Rotate your electrode pads every 4-6 hours so that they can have a chance to dry out. This will ultimately lead to a longer shelf life of your electrode pads.
COOL OFF YOUR ELECTRODE PADS
If you want to expedite the drying process, you can put your electrode pads in a frost-free freezer. Leave them in this cool environment for 24 hours. The cold temperature and lack of humidity will help dry them out and restore them to ready-to-use condition.
These things are life changing. They work on both of my TENS units and help me get to work while recovering from shoulder surgery. Love em.
