Abstract

Low DC active current through Nickel electrodes applied on skin in places like hands, forehead and feet provides a novel non invasive diagnostic tool using reverse iontophoresis. This work describes the electrochemistry reactions involved and some medical applications, such as diagnostics of neuropathy, diabetes and cardiac diseases. Finally we provide evidence for the utility of this method through large clinical studies.
