Iontophoresis Units, Drug Delivery

Definition : Devices designed for minimum-access treatment of diseases by introduction of soluble drug ions (i.e., medication administration) into the body by means of electric current (i.e., iontophoresis). These units typically include a direct-current (DC) generator and two electrodes connected to the generator by cords. A pad saturated with the drug to be administered is placed on the skin, and a DC voltage is applied. Iontophoresis therapy units are used to administer a therapeutic drug concentration to a limited area with minimal exposure to the rest of the body; dedicated units are used to treat hyperhidrosis by plugging the sweat ducts with tap water ions.
