Measuring the electrical activity of the human nervous system, with or without stimuli, is no easy task. As such, finding the right combination of EMG EP systems and supplies for you is of the utmost importance. But, the search doesn’t end once you’ve chosen the perfect EMG system. Now you need to upgrade your purchase with the perfect accessories to make sure your new system is easy to use, performing at its best, and comfortable for all your patients.
Fortunately, at MFI Medical we carry an extensive selection of the best EMG supplies on the market today to make sure you’re getting what’s best for both your practice and your wallet.
1) Weaver Ten20 Conductive Paste
Preferred by expert technologists and technicians the world over and available in 2 oz jars, 4 oz jars, 4 oz tubes, and 8 oz jars, Weaver Ten20 Conductive Paste is the perfect balance of adhesiveness and conductivity. It enables the electrodes to remain securely in place, while also allowing the transmittance of electrical signals. This means you will no longer have to disrupt a test to reattach the electrodes and this reliable paste will conduct the signal that you are relying on for clear results.
2) Parker Spectra 360 Electrode Gel
The only salt-free and chloride-free electrically conductive gel, Parker Spectra 360 Electrode Gel comes in either 2 oz or 8.5 gel tubes. Recommended for all electromedical procedures, except defibrillation, the salt-free characteristics of this top-of-the-line gel makes it the perfect choice for long-term applications. It differs significantly from all other electrically conductive media - it works by wetting the skin, thereby reducing skin resistance.
3) MFI Medical Reusable EMG Ground Electrode
Made out of solid stainless steel and TPE plastic, the MFI Medical Reusable EMG Ground Electrode is used to ground the patient to the EMG machine for the cleanest possible signal. Produced in the USA, this high-quality electrode is compatible with Cadwell, Natus, Nicolet, Nihon Kohden, Teca Synergy, Xltek, and more. It is comparable to the Cadwell Round Ground Plate Electrode (#302189-200) or the Natus Disc Ground Electrode (#9013L0862).
4) MFI Medical Ring EMG Electrodes
Used for sensory nerve stimulation and recording, the MFI Medical Ring EMG Electrodes feature a molded grip for convenient handling and an adjustable slider that moves smoothly and locks firmly in one motion. It is compatible with most EMG systems (Cadwell, Natus, Nicolet, Nihon Kohden, Teca, Synergy, Xltek, and more), but conductive gel should still be used on each ring. These top-tier electrodes are made in the USA and are comparable to Cadwell Rings with Twisted Leads (#302143-200) or Natus Stimulating/Recording Large Digital Ring Electrodes (#9013S0332).
5) MFI Medical Bar EMG Electrode
Constructed from TPE plastic and stainless steel and commonly used for surface stimulation, motor nerve conduction studies, and as stimulating points for evoked potential studies, the MFI Medical Bar EMG Electrode is proudly made in the USA. It is compatible with Cadwell, Natus, Nicolet, Nihon Kohden, Teca Synergy, Xltek, and more EMG systems, this top-shelf electrode is comparable to the Cadwell Concave Bar (#302247-200) and the Natus Bipolar Bar Stimulating Electrode (#019-446700).
