Some Gel in the Medical field are used in order to improve the conduction between the equipment and the human body, equipment, for obtaining electrophysiological signals are equipped with various types of transducers and sensors which, in contact with skin detect the signals, and a second the type of medical diagnostics or therapeutics there are adequate types of Gels that help operators with service provision.
Biodiagram offer a wide range of Ultrasound Gel, IPL Gel, Laser Gel, ECG Gel and Lubricating Gel for a variety of procedures within the surgery or clinic.
Ultrasound Gel is a water based gel that is hypoallergenic and is used for all types of ultrasound scans, it also can be used with cavitation machines. The consistency is specially formulated to act as a coupling agent and reduce static when using ultrasound equipment, typically a Doppler. The gel is also acoustically efficient to transmit effectively the range of ultrasound frequencies being used. Our ultrasound gels contain no salt.
IPL Gel tends to have a much higher viscosity than Ultrasound gel in order to disperse and minimise the heat produced by the laser or IPL equipment. The other significant difference between ultrasound gel and Laser IPL gel is that the Laser gel provides much more favourable results of refraction of light when passed through it when compared to other gels, this is especially important when a Laser is being used.
ECG (Electrocardiography) gel is the same viscosity as the ultrasound gel, but the major difference between this gel and both the Ultrasound and Laser gels is that ECG Gel contains an additional component which enables it to transmit electo activity via a persons skin. This is done by using electrodes, the current is then transmitted into the ECG device for recording.
Ultrasound gel is a type of conductive medium that is used in ultrasound diagnostic techniques and treatment therapies. It is placed on the patient’s skin at the beginning of the ultrasound examination or therapy. The transducer, which is the device used to send and receive sound waves, is then placed on top of it. Ultrasound gel is also used with a fetal Doppler, which can be employed to allow parents and doctors to listen to the heart beat of an unborn child.
Many doctors, hospitals, clinics, and other facilities use ultrasound technology for diagnostic purposes. It works by passing sound waves into a person’s body. Once there, they don’t remain for long. Instead, they bounce off the organ or other part of the body the doctors are trying to view. The sound waves then move back through the transducer, and they are ultimately analyzed by a computer, which allows the analyzed sound waves to be viewed on a monitor or even printed out for doctor or patient use.
