Eco-Med EcoGel 300® TENS Gel is a high viscosity (110,000-120,000 cps) gel that is designed to optimize conductivity when used for TENS treatments or other procedures that require a thicker conductive medium. Although it is designed primarily for this purpose, its high conductivity also makes it eligible for use in therapeutic ultrasound.
The thickness of this gel makes it ideal for prolonged treatments in which exposure to the patients body temperature for a prolonged period may result in less viscosity than at room temperature. A thinner gel may become “runny” in these circumstances and may not provide the required coverage of the skin, especially on highly contoured areas like the elbow or the knee.
The same is true of ultrasound treatments that require the gel to be heated prior to commencing the treatment. A thinner gel may become unusable at the higher temperatures, while a thicker one like the Eco-Med EcoGel 300® TENS Gel may have just the right degree of thickness for use.
For best results, avoid exposing this gel to heat or extreme cold. Although it is not toxic, it should not be ingested or allowed to come into contact with the eyes. Ingestion may cause stomach upset and contact with the eyes may result in redness.
If it does come into contact with your eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Seek medical attention if irritation continues.
If it is accidentally ingested, try to induce vomiting and seek medical attention.
