About Electrotherapy

For Medical Professionals Who care!

For over 23 years, Pepin Manufacturing, Inc. has been a leading electrotherapy electrode manufacturer, offering high performance products under the Advantrode trademark name. Pepin's full line of Advantrode brand electrotherapy electrodes offer 100% uniform current dispersion, improved reusability, and ultra-low impedance. Our fully automated processes allow us to offer a superior, USA-made electrode at a competitive price. Additionally, Pepin Manufacturing mass manufactures our own Comfort 1/0 Iontophoresis transdermal patches. All Advantrode and Comfort 1/0 electrodes are FDA 510(K) cleared. In addition to the full line of Advantrode electrodes, Pepin Manufacturing offers a wide variety of TENS units, leadwires, and electrotherapy accessories. Pepin Manufacturing leads the way in custom electrode and sensor manufacturing for the cosmetic, electrotherapy, and medical industries. As a key provider for next­ generation wearable technologies that use the Internet of Things (loT), we design and manufacture cutting-edge electrodes and sensors built to each customer's specifications and application.


  • Uniquely designed Dual layer of adhesive hydrogel enhances the performance, offering ultimate patient comfort. Our premium hydrogel strengthens and increases the life of each electrode resulting in maximum reusability.
  • A layer of Pure Silver (Ag) is uniquely bonded to a layer of conductive carbon film for reduced impedance, greater conductivity and uniform current dispersion. The combination of these high quality materials prevents "hot spots" to ensure patient comfort.
  • Extra long 4.5" Lead Wires with tin coated copper strands for the lowest impedance on the market. A dispersive lug head helps to prevent wire pull-out.
  • Available in Many Size and Shapes along with several choices of Flexible and Durable Topcoat Materials.
  • Low Profile Design maximizes flexibility, allowing the electrode to conform to body contours.
  • The AdvanTrode line of electrodes are manufactured with State-of-the-Art Computerized Technology to ensure precision and quality in every electrode.
  • Made in the USA.

PMI Electrode
Current Dispersion

  • The unique manufacturing processes and material used in PMI electrodes provide a uniform current dispersion throughout the desired treatment site of picture each electrode. This uniform current dispersion eliminates "hot spots" and provides the maximum treatment to the entire electrode surface.
  • A leading brand electrode and a PMI electrode are placed on a "Current Dispersion Meter". An electrical current is passed through each electrode for a period of 60 seconds. The electrical voltage output is identical for each electrode. Results are shown at right.
  • The PMI electrode displays optimal current dispersion while the leading brand treats less than 50% of the surface, mainly where the wire is placed.
PMI Electrodes Current is concentrated in a small area, creating a "hot spot" that is less effective.
