The electrodes must be wet with clean water prior to connecting them to the garment. This is done as follows:
- Inspect the electrodes prior to use. If there is significant discoloration, bad odors, or any noticeable separation of materials, discard and use a new set instead.
- Soak the electrodes in clean, room-temperature water for approximately 15 seconds. Gently message the fabric pads while submerged to ensure that they have absorbed as much water as possible.
- Remove from the water and squeeze the electrodes lightly in order to remove excess water. The electrodes should be as wet as possible, without dripping water.
CAUTION: Use only clean water to wet your electrodes. Using dirty water or any other liquid can result in skin irritation and unknown stimulation performance.
NOTE: Using deionized/distilled water to wet your electrodes may effect stimulation performance.
