We at Leonhard Lang have long been believers that user concerns and ideas for improvement are as important to us as producing high quality performing electrodes. Many of the changes we make come from suggestions that you, the user, raise. All SKINTACT® electrodes offer:
In order to achieve high quailty results even during the most demanding ECG procedures an electrode made of impermeable materials with enhanced adhesive is needed. These might strain the skin, though. Avoiding skin trauma, SKINTACT® electrodes are designed and manufactured using only proven biocompatible materials that provide the quality you expect, yet are kind to the patient’s skin.
The choice of sensors is critical to the performance of an electrode. SKINTACT® electrodes only incorporate sensor systems of superior electrical properties and contact quality. In SKINTACT® standard snap electrodes only the highest quality durable stainless steel studs are used. They are machined to tolerances, which create minimum wear on your lead wires. All eyelets have an Ag/AgCl layer. With C-LINE technology AgCl is only placed at the interface to the gel in Aqua-Wet and Aqua-Set electrodes to prevent corrosive effects and to maintain undiminished quality for the duration of the shelf life.
As the requirements for short term procedures are so different to the ones needed for long term monitoring Leonhard Lang has developed a range of conductive mediums specific to these applications. Our gels have excellent pick up capabilities and provide reliable quality recordings with minimal skin reactions to the patient.
Water contents in a gel is crucial for its electrical and – in case of hydrogels – its adhesive performance. In order to ensure that our products reach you in the freshest possible state and keep their superior performance quality for all their shelflife SKINTACT® electrodes are packed immediately after they are produced into steamproof aluminium pouches.
Performance and safety of all SKINTACT® electrodes and other ECG products have been designed and stringently tested according to all applicable standards. All SKINTACT® ECG electrodes meet ANSI/AAMI EC12 on disposable ECG electrodes, ISO 10993 on biocompatibility and the European Medical Device Directive.
