If I have a microcurrent stimulator can I use it with the SIS electrodes?

Yes, but with caution and some restrictions. Refer to the WARNING below before attempting use. The SIS electrode are only designed for use in the low microcurrent range and only with very low voltages (less than 1 Volt).

The SIS machines should not be compared to commonly available microcurrent stimulators, either electronically or therapeutically. These devices are not capable of the electronic requirements for silver iontophoresis or low intensity direct current (LIDC) therapeutics using silver-nylon cloth as electrochemical or electrical anode and cathode. The SIS machines are direct current (DC) devices; they have no output stimulation frequency. Most microcurrent stimulators are not DC devices: they are frequency emitting, pulsed waveform generating devices, similar to or actual alternating current (AC) devices.

For silver iontophoresis or low intensity direct current (LIDC) therapeutics using silver-nylon cloth electrodes acting as the (+)positive and (-)negative electrochemical or electrical anode and cathode for the release of silver cations (Ag+s) or LIDC therapeutic effect, extremely stable ultra low amperage DC Output Current with nanoampere accuracy is required. This specification is far beyond the capabilities of generally available microcurrent stimulators.

Additionally, the M250/M250MA/W250 model SIS machines are sophisticated realtime and statistical monitoring devices of the SIS silver-nylon cloth electrode↔skin contact. This function is also critical for silver iontophoresis or low intensity direct current (LIDC) therapeutics to occur over time at ultra low constant DC.

WARNING

GENERALLY AVAILABLE MICROCURRENT STIMULATORS, AND OTHER ELECTRICAL STIMULATION DEVICES THAT HAVE ELECTRONIC SPECIFICATIONS THAT INCLUDE THE MILLIAMPERE (mA) RANGE OF OUTPUT CURRENT, SHOULD NOT BE USED WITH THE SIS ELECTRODES IN CASE OF UNPREDICTABLE TISSUE DAMAGE, BURNS AND OTHER ADVERSE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS.
