HIDREX iontophoresis devices: care & cleaning instructions

Care and cleaning your iontophoresis device

To keep your HIDREX ion­tophore­sis ther­a­py device func­tion­al for the long term, we rec­om­mend the fol­low­ing steps after each use:

Warn­ing: Before clean­ing the device, be sure to switch off the device and dis­con­nect it from the mains. Do not use petro­le­um, thin­ner, or oth­er sol­vents.

Care after each treatment:

  • Thor­ough­ly rinse the tow­els or armpit sponges with tap water (with­out deter­gent or deter­gent addi­tives).
  • Care­ful­ly wring the tow­els, armpit sponges, or face mask to remove any resid­ual liq­uid.
  • Let the tow­els, armpit sponges, or face mask air dry com­plete­ly.
  • Nev­er store wet or damp tow­els, armpit sponges, or face masks in the closed case!
  • Please dry the treat­ment elec­trodes with a soft cloth after every treat­ment to pre­vent cal­ci­um deposits! After each treat­ment, make sure that all residues have been removed.
  • Thor­ough­ly dry the treat­ment basins with a soft cloth and allow to air dry (do not close the case unless it has been com­plete­ly dried for a long time).

Cleaning and care after every 5th treatment or as needed

  • Clean the con­trol unit, treat­ment basins, and elec­trodes with a damp cloth and with com­mon clean­ing or sur­face dis­in­fec­tants.

  • Hand wash the AX sponge pads in warm water (up to 60°C) with com­mon laun­dry deter­gent. Wash sponges thor­ough­ly with water, wring out, and allow to air dry.

  • Wash the tow­els accord­ing to the wash­ing instruc­tions (see label on the tow­el) by hand or in the machine at 60°C with com­mon laun­dry deter­gents, wring them out, and air dry or tum­ble dry.

Warn­ing: Lime deposits on the elec­trodes can hin­der the flow of the cur­rent. These deposits can be removed with house­hold lime removers, vine­gar, or cit­ric acid.

Dis­col­oration of the elec­trode met­al after the first treat­ment ses­sion is nor­mal.
