Disposable Grounding Pads
Our disposable grounding pads are made of a plastic base material that is covered with a metal film that serves as the actual electrode surface. Covering the metal surface is an adhesive gel layer that can be easily attached to the patient’s skin. Also referred to as single use pads or sticky pads, the disposable grounding pad must be large enough to keep the current density low to prevent heat build up that might result in a burn under the pad. One of the biggest benefits of disposable grounding pads is that they come in various sizes which can help ensure they fit the patient properly and are more cost effective than reusable pads. Single use also facilitates sterility during the procedure and a quick and efficient cleanup afterwards. Disposables contain high quality adhesives that help conform the fit to the patient and enables consistent heat distribution.
