Product background – OneStep AbrasivPlus
Due to the natural fat and the horny layer of the skin, optimal contact between skin and electrodes is often difficult despite conductive gels. The result is incorrect or even impossible to evaluate measurement results. In order to minimize this source of error, the skin should be prepared before applying the electrodes by degreasing and roughening the skin. Based on practical experience, OneStep AbrasivPlus is a consistent further development t0 other OneStep EEG-Gels® and has a stronger grain and a firmer consistency. For this reason, OneStep AbrasivPlus is particularly suitable for heavily calloused skin or increased sweating and also for use with ECG and long-term recordings.
Since so far only electrolyte and/or water-based preparations have been used to establish contact between electrodes and skin, the skin must be prepared either manually with the help of so-called roughening sticks or with the help of a cleaning paste. By using OneStep, the complex preparation of the skin for the subsequent derivation is no longer necessary, as the pumice stone contained in the recipe roughens the skin and removes the skin’s natural oil. At the same time, the electrolytes contained in the preparation increase the conductivity the electrodes guaranteed. Degreasing, roughening and optimal conductivity are thus guaranteed by using just one gel and just one operation. In addition to saving time for users and patients, there are no additional costs for the separate preparation of the scalp using additional products.
Please shake well before use! Approx. 5g of gel placed on a suitable surface. Now, for example, using a cotton swab, OneStep is applied with light pressure and circular movements where
the electrodes are to be placed. OneStep is a ready-to-use gel that is applied directly to the skin. After the examination, the fabric covers or the electrodes are simply cleaned with water. Any remaining gel can either be mixed with a little water or after drying in patients’ hair (EEG), easily removed with a comb or brush.
Since OneStep contains no fat, alcohol or dyes, it is easy to wash out, skin-friendly and odorless. This achieves a high level of acceptance among users and patients. In contrast to alcohol-containing or liquid EEG preparations, good and long- lasting conductivity (no evaporation of the alcohol content) as well as point application to the scalp (semi-solid gel) is guaranteed. This ensures optimal measurement results (very low Measuring resistors of 2-5 k). This has already been demonstrated in numerous applications.
Due to these excellent physical properties, OneStep can be used to perform routine EEG, EKG as well as to derive long-term EEG, EKG, evoked potentials and nerve conduction velocities.
