Grounding / Diathermy Pads

Best - In - Class Technology
Ensuring complete contact during HF Surgery

All Vermed Grounding Pads (Diathermy Pads / Neutral Electrodes) are made of 1mm PE-Foam and contain a medical grade acrylic adhesive or hydrogel on the aluminum foil. Pads are available in adult, child/infant and premature sizes. They also come as a single plate, split pad, or with preattached cables. Custom grounding pads are available upon request.

Twin Safe Grounding Pads

The revolutionary "sling design" of the TWIN-SAFE makes it possible for the first time to use efficiently the symmetry surveillance of last-generation devices fully and completely and with arbitrary electrode orientation. The typical symmetry deviation of the HF current is below 5 % with any orientation of the TWIN-SAFE.

Split Grounding Pads

These electrodes are for applications with HF - surgery devices which support a Contact Quality Monitoring (CQM)

Pre-Attached Grounding Pads

Pre-attached grounding pads are pre connected with a cable for the connection between the HF Surgery Device and the neutral electrode. Simply select the right type of cable for your device for instant application.

Non-Split Grounding Pads

These electrodes are for standard applications with HF - surgery devices which have no Contact Quality Monitoring (CQM).


The advantages of SWAROPLATE Diathermy Pads / Neutral Electrodes:

  • Stays in place - The adhesiveness of the foam border and of the conductive gel make sure that the electrode will not come off. This means that there is practically no danger of burnings with SWAROPLATE
  • Ready to be used - Just remove the protective sheeting and apply the electrode on the prepared skin. There is no additional gel required!
  • Highly flexible with excellent skin compatibility - Gel and adhesive foam are tolerated even by a sensitive skin. There is no gel left on the skin after the application

SWAROPLATE Diathermy Pads / Neutral Electrodes

  • are compatible with the most commonly used HF-surgery devices
  • Manufacturer’s Declaration regarding compatibility for the HF-devices of: ERBE, MARTIN, VALLEYLAB, BERCHTOLD, BOVIE, BOWA, EMED, AESCULAP and others is available on request
  • meet the requirements of ISO IEC 60601-2-2:2009 (International Standard) and AAMI HF 18:2001 (American National Standard for Electrosurgical Devices) and are suited for all standard HF-surgery devices
  • the maximum temperature rise under standard load according to ISO IEC 60601-2-2 is typically < 4°C. Limit according to the Standard is < 6°C
  • the NE contact-impedance is typically 1 Ohm (for adult size electrodes)
  • the shelf life is at least 24 months in the originally sealed bag
