Wash out electrodes and WaterTabs

Once your study ends, wash out your electrodes and WaterTabs®. 

To do this:

1. Disconnect QuickConnect from the EEG headpiece and the ECG cable from your chest stickers. Remove the chest stickers and throw them away.


2. Leave Sense outside the bathroom.

3. Soak the Watertabs and electrodes under very warm water until they're sticky and soft. 


Do not use shampoo, conditioner, or other oil-based hair products as this can make the removal process more difficult; only use very warm water. The removal process can take up to 40 minutes. 

4. Massage the electrodes and WaterTabs out of your hair – continue until you’ve removed all the WaterTab gel.

5. Throw away the electrode array and headpiece, and any undissolved gel.
