    Can regular Skin Prep be used for Tens?

    After many years, I'm finally running out of skin prep (Tyco brand Tens Clean-Cote) for my FES Bike. Do I have to buy more, or can I use regular skin prep, which I have a lot of? I'm worried that regular skin prep may not be designed to conduct electricity as well.

    After searching online and finding nothing, I finally just looked at the ingredients. They are exactly the same 3 ingredients: Isopropanol, Ethyl Ester of PVM/MA Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate. Yay!

    As usual, my CNA was right. I never even thought of using regular skin prep for FES.

    A bit late but I have also used regular skin prep with my tens unit.
