The classicION combines two techniques: it can offer traditional pulsed current as well as direct current. This "two gear" iontophoresis device is the right machine for both sensitive and resistant body parts.
Due to the classic pulsed iontophoresis current (50%), this iontophoresis device allows the treatment of very sensitive body parts, which are difficult and time-consuming to treat with direct currents.
Which body parts can be treated with the classicION?
At 50%: Very sensitive areas such as underarms, face, back, nape of the neck, belly etc.
At 100%: Rather robust areas such as hands or feet.
Background knowledeg: The treatment of feet and hands is also possible with the classic direct current, though only with certain limitations.
What are the limitations?
Iontophoresis current commonly perceived as very gentle: 50%
Iontophoresis current commonly perceived as very harsh: 100%
In all currents in between, the current becomes more difficult to bear as the pulse width rises. The last steps above 90% feel extraordinarily harsh. To lower the current beneath 50% makes little to no sense, since the efficiency is diminished by such a low value.
It is important to note that the Hidrex connectION offers a pulsed current that can be adjusted in terms of intensity. This allows the user to adjust the pulsed current (above 50%) to the treatment areas, taking steps of 10%. This is why we advise our customers to switch to the Hidrex connectION. This machine is a "6 gear" iontophoresis device.
During the iontophoresis treatment, the current needs to be low enough not to cause any pain. This threshold is reached very fast during the treatment with direct current, which means that users resort to weaker currents. Weaker currents usually result in a diminished efficiency of the treatment.
This pain threshold is able to be shifted to much higher currents and consequently an improved comfort zone when using pulsed current. At the same time, the energy you'll receive during the treatment increases during a pulsed current session. Once the pain threshold has been reached, this energy can only be controlled by adjusting the treatment time.
A nice metaphor: the bicycle and the mountain.
Let's picture a steep hill (our personal perception of pain) and a bicycle (our tool "iontophoresis"). The top of the mountain promises a beautiful view, satisfaction with our achievement and the pleasant anticipation of what's to come (enough received energy: get rid of the sweat). Which bicycle should we take? The one with 2 or the one with 6 gears?
If we drive in the highest gear (100%), it's very possible that we will never reach the top of the mountain, because it's simply too steep. If we reduce to 50%, we will not reach the top as fast as we would driving in the 5th gear, using 90% - almost twice as efficient.
Time is not to be underestimated.
The time each patient has to invest into their iontophoresis treatment differs widely. Approximately 30 minutes per week are the normal standard - this is aided by a well-adjusted therapy setting. If the therapy is optimised and the time reduced by 50%, this same user would spend 240 hours doing iontophoresis in 20 years of treating their hyperhidrosis. This does not sound like such a high value. However, if you have a half hour session every day and treat your feet, hands or underarms on top of that, an optimised therapy that allows for a time reduction of, say, 66% can be a true life changer. This potential to be optimised* is often highly available during the iontophoresis treatment, due to its personalised nature. In the above mentioned case, the saved time equals 6720 hours or 280 days! Wow!
Which aid do I take? The one with 2 or the one with 6 gears?
The Hidrex classicION is a traditional iontophoresis machine with two gears: 50% and 100%. With the Hidrex connectION, we offer you an iontophoresis device with 6! gears.
However, that is not all: the Hidrex connectION can be controlled via app. This app is developed continuously, but it already offers a clear glimpse into the therapy. It shows factors such as pulse width, therapy time, current (in V and mA) and allows a definition of the body resistance, which can give insights into the efficiency of the pulse width. A high body resistance can result in an unnecessarily high current - if the body resistance can be reduced to a value that is considered normal within the framework of iontophoresis, the pulse could be lowered and the current elevated - the goal: saving time while achieving optimal comfort during the treatment.
For this reason, we advise our customer to choose the Hidrex connectION or the Idromed 5 PS (the automatic, if you will, that allows no mistakes. The usage could not be simpler: one button is enough to adjust all parameters). Even though these machines are more expensive initially, it's an investion that will pay off in the long run.
OUR SERVICE: Should you realise that you only use the connectION with 50% or 100% pulse width (which will certainly not be the case) or the automatic version of the Idromed 5PS leaves you feeling like you have to optimise your treatment: we switch every device for another one within the first 12 weeks after your order to make sure you are completely satisfied with the therapy, the therapy time, the comfort and our customer service.
Of course we are always glad to help you personally, in our forum, via phone or e-mail. We answer all questions that might arise during the treatment or the choice of our devices.
The set: iontophoresis device Hidrex classicION (direct and 50% pulsed current), case (able to be split into two treatment tubs), electrode plates (for the treatment of feet and hands), cables, mains plug.
