Electrodes and accessories for electrostimulation
In electrostimulation, the current transmission system from the generator to the muscle must pass through the skin and cross the skin barrier. The main obstacle will be the air, as air does not allow the current to pass. As we can see in our environment, there is no electricity in the air, otherwise the electric cables running over our heads would make the air unbearable.
To make the current flow, a binder must be used to ensure this function. The first electrodes were made of metal with water, which increased the risk of burning, followed by cloth bags like sponge that were abundantly wet. It was not until the 1970s that the first adhesive electrodes arrived. They quickly became the most effective and comfortable way of doing electrostimulation, sport-elec of course adopted this principle by developing its own electrodes.
By using fabrics of woven carbon threads on which one comes to place a layer of adhesive hydrophilic gel which does not stick. Indeed, if the gel is very sticky, the electrode will be destroyed the first time it is used when it is removed. The quality of the gel used is therefore very important since the most perfect adhesion to the skin will allow the air to be eliminated and the current to flow perfectly without offering resistance. The targeted muscle will receive the current and contract without you feeling any tingling.
This quality of Sport-elec adhesive electrodes offers a major advantage in the quality of the electrostimulation that it sells thanks to its electrodes associated with its currents. To perfect this system Sport-elec has created accessories to contain the electrodes and facilitate the installation during the sessions, the speed of installation of the electrostimulation garments allows more frequent use of the devices and plays an important role in the results that can be obtained.
Sport-elec was a precursor in the improvement of the electrodes like the double electrodes or the deported electrodes and the clothes of electrostimulation since the 90s well before the products of active electrostimulation which one seems to discover today and no doubt that the research Sport-elec will still bring improvements soon. Discover also in the range accessory and electrodes Sport-elec the electrodes compatible with marks like compex, globus, and slendertone sometimes superior in quality to the original ones.
