We 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.
