Iontophoresis/Hyperhidrosis

KaWe SwiSto3 Iontophoresis Device for the treatment of hyperhidrosis in the hands, feet and under arm

SwiSto3 is a continuous and pulsed current therapy within one machine that is used for the treatment of hand, foot and underarm perspiration.

The elevated tendency to perspire on the feet, hands and underarms is often very uncomfortable for those affected. Iontophoresis has proven to be an effective, cost-efficient in the long-term, safe and easy-to-use form of therapy for this condition. Compared to injections or operative therapy, iontophoresis therapy is pain-free. Medications on the other hand can often cause unpleasant side effects.

The new SwiSto3, with its modern design is extremely user-friendly interface provides patients with two possible treatment options for hyperhidrosis:
– therapy with continuous current or
– therapy with pulsed current

The new SwiSto3 does not have language software. The user is simply guided through the menu and confirms the desired setting by pressing the SET button. The graphic LCD module shows all of the setting in a clear and organised manner. The user can change the current intensity unaided during the treatment, so that a second person or a foot switch are not necessary. The automatic current control function prevents the user from feeling an electric shock (electric fence effect) when removing their hands and feet from the water trays during treatment. The SwiSto3 is equipped with an automatic shutoff. If the device is not switched off after a treatment is finished, it switches itself off automatically after 2 minutes.

Prescription of home therapy devices

Iontophoresis therapy must always be an attending physician. Once the treatment has produced results, maintenance treatment can be performed at home. This home therapy must however be regularly monitored by a physician (for example, every 3 months).

Please consult your physician if you have any of the following conditions: cardiac arrhythmia, pregnancy, pacemakers or metal implants, metal-containing intrauterine devices (contraceptive coil), major skin defects that cannot be covered with Vaseline, insensitivity to painful stimuli.

Use

Iontophoresis treatment for hyperhidrosis manum et ­pedum is a physical application. It was first described by Boumann and Grunewald-Lentzer in 1952. Continuous or pulsed current cause ion transport through the skin.

The plastic treatment trays are filled with approx. 3-4 cm of luke-warm water, such that the surfaces of the hands and feet are covered. Before filling the trays, the electrodes must be covered with the foam pads in order to prevent direct contact with the skin. The sponge pockets used for underarm treatment are to be soaked thoroughly with water before use. The treatment should be performed at least 3 times per week with an average treatment time of 15 to 20 minutes until the desired healing results have been achieved. Usually, this takes place after approx. 10-15 treatments. Thereafter, maintenance treatments should be performed regularly (at least once a week) in order to maintain the successful therapy results. The current that flows through the electrode plates can, depending on application (hands, feet, underarms), be adjusted up to a maximum of 25 mA. We recommend, that the polarity be switched if the skin is thickly calloused as the anode is said to have a stronger empirical efficacy.

Additional healing results

In addition, scientific test have shown that this therapy can also lead to
excellent treatment results for gram-negative foot infection, dyshidrotic eczema, pustulosis palmaris et plantaris, acrocyanosis and osteoarthrosis.

Please consult your physician if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Pregnancy
  • Pacemakers or metal implants
  • Metal-containing intrauterine devices (contraceptive coil)
  • Major skin defects that cannot be covered with Vaseline
  • Insensitivity to painful stimuli

Cleaning and disinfection

The plastic water trays and the electrodes are to be cleaned thoroughly after each use with disinfecting agent. For hygienic reasons, the foam pads and sponge pockets are only to be used by one and the same patient. If possible, the use of skin crèmes and oils should be avoided during treatments.
