Probes and electrode pads are disposable components that can be reused for a set amount of time or uses. Most electrode patches can be reused about 30 times when cared for properly and used against skin that is free of lotions and other oils. Electrode probes have an estimated 6 months of consistent use before they should be replaced. These estimates are based on average use and care. When used and stored with care your probe may last a full year before it needs to be replaced. Follow handling and storage instructions carefully to get the most of your electrodes.
