The ActivaPatch® family of products represents a technologically advanced, self-contained drug delivery system for iontophoresis treatments. ActivaPatch® products are simple to use and solve many of the issues associated with the most commonly utilized iontophoresis products.
Since its inception in 2006, ActivaPatch® has continually brought innovation and advanced technologies to the iontophoresis market. The ActivaPatch® is one such example. A wireless, self-contained, fully powered disposable patch, which functions as a complete delivery system for iontophoresis. The ActivaPatch® has an onboard intelligent microprocessor that detects skin resistance before allowing the treatment to begin. It also memorizes treatment time if interrupted, and provides visual feedback for clinician and patient while in use with a LED light.
What Is Iontophoresis?
Iontophoresis is the method of delivering very small doses of anti-inflammatory drugs through the skin to a targeted area of the body with the use of a low-voltage current. Charged molecules of medication penetrate through the skin to underlying tissues via wired or wireless skin patches, eliminating the need for injecting a drug or ingesting a pill for drug delivery. Iontophoresis treatments are prescribed by physicians for anti-inflammation and pain management and are most often administered by Physical Therapists.
