What is the TheraTrode Challenge?
It’s one thing to call your product “The World’s Best Electrode.” It’s another thing entirely to prove it. But we’ve done just that—with the TheraTrode Challenge.
The TheraTrode Challenge is a series of tests that enable us to compare and analyze performance characteristics of many brands of currently marketed electrodes; comparing them against TheraTrode brand electrodes. To measure these characteristics, we invented and developed a cutting-edge tool called the Hydrogel Electrode Comparison and Analysis Tool (H.E.C.A.T.). The H.E.C.A.T. provides unbiased and scientific measurements for electrical performance, moisture content and physical strength, allowing for purely objective testing.
In addition to side-by-side performance tests, the TheraTrode Challenge incorporates retail and wholesale price comparisons. The results from the H.E.C.A.T. and the pricing data are incorporated into a “ranking” system that is based on select performance criteria. Our ranking system presents the winners and losers in each metric.
How Are Electrodes Ranked?
The criteria for the TheraTrode Challenge were determined after speaking with a number of electrode buyers, whose responses directly impacted our test methodology development.
There are 20 criteria in the ranking system. The highest priority criteria receive a weight of 20 and the lowest priority a weight of 1. For example, if your highest priority criterion is price, and if XYZ-brand electrode has the lowest price of 10 competitors, it would earn a value of 10 (best) for that criterion. Its value of 10 would be multiplied by the priority weight of 20, providing an overall score of 200 to this electrode brand for this particular criterion.
Since we know the priorities of electrode buyers can vary, we created an interactive online ranking tool that lets you re-prioritize the TheraTrode Challenge criteria based on what’s important to you in an electrode. After you prioritize your criteria, the ranking tool displays a comparison table presenting the best electrode for your needs.
Clear Proof that TheraTrode is the Superior Electrode
When you use our ranking tool, you’ll see that TheraTrode comes out on top in almost every category. This is because we have succeeded in producing an outstanding product that consistently outperforms its competitors in durability, performance, pricing and more.
We’re on a mission to prove that TheraTrode is deserving of its title—and we’ll take on any challengers in the process. See for yourself how some of the so-called “top” electrode brands measure up against ours. View the full TheraTrode Challenge Results now.
