- What type of device are you using (manufactorer/model)?
RA Fishcer MD - 2A
- What areas are you treating (hands, feet, hands+feet together, armpit, other areas)?
Hands & Feet
- Do you treat them with direct current or pulsed current?
Pulsed, I believe. It switches hands every 20 seconds
For every treated area we need to know:

- Initial Treatment was done every day?
Instructions recommended every 2 days, but after a while I began to do every other day
- For how many days (overall treatment days)?
- Were there breaks during the Initial Treatment (in days)?
2 day break starting off. I started treatments on December 24th, on Jan 18th I switched to every other day.
- How long is the treatment time (in minutes for each session)?
20 min for hands, 20 min for feet
- How high is the current for each treated area (please clarify if current is shown in mA or Voltage)?
- In %, how much better is the sweating than before starting the therapy?
Only when using the Hidrex PSP1000
- How high is the Pulse Width set for each treated area?
- Does the therapy hurt in parts of the treated areas? And if yes, where?
Only around cuts, I apply vaseline so that it is not an issue
- Describe the feeling?
- Have you got blisters, injuries or cracks on the skin (please describe where, how many)?
- What do you use to cover them?
- If you cover them, does it hurt anyway?
Yes sometimes still does especially on feet. I believe that this may be due to the fact that the skin on my feet is a little bit dry.
Only for hand and feet treatment:
- Do treat hands and feet simultaneously?
- Where do you sweat exactly (soles/sides/top ...)?
On entire palm and bottom of feet
- How high is the water in the trays?
About half an inch, water covers just the top of my fingers
- Do you regularly use creme on your hands or feet? If yes, what kind of creme?
- Do you use supplements in the water like soda or salt?
I recently began to experiment with the amount of baking soda I use. I believe I started to add 1 half teaspoon of baking soda to the water, then 1 full teaspoon, and now I just add maybe a quarter of a teaspoon. I also add 2 mg of crushed glycoporrolate pills to each tray.
- Do you take any nutrition supplements like vitamins?
- Do you take any oral medication (any kind, like Vagatin, Aspirin, etc.)
- Have you tried†Iontophoresis†before? If yes, where (clinic, at home)?
- If yes, did you have success?
- If yes, what kind of device was it?
- Have you moved since then or have you moved since you started the therapy with the actual device?
- Did something change regarding the quality of your water?
- Did you install a water softener in your house?
No water softener in house but I believe that the issue could be the hardenss of the water. The water where Iím from is very soft which is why I began to add the pills and baking soda to the water. I am beginning to think that perhaps it would be best to purchase some sort of mineral water to use. I also read recently that warmer water helps so I will try that as well. Unfortunately for me I have little time to experiment. I have one more month left until I can no longer return the device. If I donít see significant improvement by March 15th, I will most likely return the device and look to buy a Hidrex Machine. Thanks a ton for you help it is greatly appreciated.
