Development of a solvent-activated current passing tape electrode system has improved significantly the clinical efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. Developmental work with this electrode system in combination with solid-state battery-operated pulse generators has opened new and interesting areas of application, including pain relief, muscle stimulation, and use as an indifferent electrode.
