HIDREX® CONNECTION FOR HANDS & Feet
The Hidrex® ConnectION is the new and improved Iontophoresis Machine from Hidrex® MED. It replaces the popular Hidrex® PSP1000 and is the most advanced machine available. Hidrex® are the market leaders for Iontophoresis Machines and are one of the best-selling Iontophoresis Machine Manufacturers in the UK and Europe. It is powerful, versatile and has multiple safety features not found on other machines. Hidrex® Med Iontophoresis Machines are professional grade devices used extensively in hospitals and clinics worldwide to treat Hyperhidrosis, but are safe and simple to use in the comfort of your own home to treat excessive sweating.
This machine offers both a pulsed and direct current setting and also a variable pulsed setting. Direct Current applies power to the patient 100% of the time and therefore gives the strongest effect, however some users may find this uncomfortable to tolerate on more sensitive skin areas, Direct Current is most suited to the treatment of the feet. Switching the unit to Pulsed Current will provide a much milder treatment experience and this allows the user to increase power to a level not normally possible when using Direct Current on more sensitive areas. Variable pulsed current allows the user to adjust the on off ratio to gain up to 80% MORE efficient pulsed current treatments.
A unique feature of this Iontophoresis Machine is the ability to alter the Pulsed Current ratios. Variable Pulsed Current can be described as a mixture of Direct Current and Pulsed Current, it combines the best of both. Other Iontophoresis Machines do not have this ability – it is a HIDREX® patent. Standard Pulsed Current Machines can only deliver pulsed current in equal on/off ratios, so 50% on 50% off. For example, in this ratio, during a 20 minute treatment the user only receives 10 minutes of dosage. The Hidrex® ConnectION can be adjusted to extend the ‘on’ ratio compared to the ‘off’ ratio, for example 90% on 10% off, which gives an incredibly more efficient pulsed current treatment. A 20 minute treatment in ‘P90’ gives the user 18 minutes of dosage which is close to Direct Current efficiency and is a major breakthrough in treatment.
This ability to adjust the pulse range increases effectiveness, compared to other pulsed current machines, and comfort compared to Direct Current treatment. Variable Pulsed Current is the most effective form of current and allows optimal consideration of individual needs and sensitivities of the user. For the treatment of younger users or patients with sensitive or secondary skin conditions such as eczema, treating in Variable Pulsed Current is the best choice.
AS SEEN ON TV
Hidrex® Iontophoresis Machines have featured and been recommended by the Medical Team on Channel Four’s Embarrassing Bodies Series 5, for treating excessive sweating. The Hidrex® has also appeared on ‘Live from the Clinic’ in both May 2012 and May 2014. The patients featured in the award winning documentary, were advised to use a Hidrex® machine for Plantar Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the feet) and Axillae Hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) by the show’s doctors and the results were amazing.

How long do machines last?
Machines will last a lifetime of use. You will only need to replace consumables when required. For example, the electrodes may require replacing every few years.
How long does the support from Iontocentre last for?
We are happy to support patients with their Hidrex or Idromed machines ongoing. If you have a general question, even about other brands – were happy to try and help!
How much is shipping cost?
Shipping is free for all machines to UK addresses. We offer competitive shipping rates for European & International locations.
Is ConnectION better than the ClassicION?
The Hidrex ConnectION is certainly more advanced and has more features but these are not always needed. Please contact us for advice if unsure.
How long on average does a treatment take?
Daily sessions of 15 minutes are required for 1-4 weeks, depending on severity. After this, most people enjoy several weeks of dryness before a single top us session is required in order to retain results.
Individual results will vary depending on age, skin tolerance, severity and location of condition, water quality and the patients’ willingness to perform treatments.
Can I treat both hands & feet at the same time?
Yes, simultaneous treatments are possible however they are not always recommended. Skin on the feet is thicker and so generally requires power higher than the hands. This can limit the feet to what power level your hands can tolerate, affecting results.
