The Hidrex® PSP1000 is the most advanced machine available and one of the best-selling Iontophoresis Machines in Europe. It is powerful, versatile and has multiple safety features not found on some machines. Hidrex® Med Iontophoresis Machines are professional grade devices used extensively in hospitals and clinics worldwide to treat Hyperhidrosis, but are safe and simple to use in the comfort of your own home to treat excessive sweating.
This machine offers both a pulsed and direct current setting. Direct Current applies power to the patient 100% of the time and therefore gives the strongest effect, however some users may find this uncomfortable to tolerate on more sensitive skin areas, Direct Current is most suited to the treatment of the feet. Switching the unit to Pulsed Current will provide a much milder treatment experience and this allows the user to increase power to a level not normally possible when using Direct Current on more sensitive areas.
A unique feature of this Iontophoresis Machine is the ability to alter the Pulsed Current ratios. Variable Pulsed Current can be described as a mixture of Direct Current and Pulsed Current, it combines the best of both. Other Iontophoresis Machines do not have this ability – it is a HIDREX® patent. Standard Pulsed Current Machines can only deliver pulsed current in equal on/off ratios, so 50% on 50% off. For example, in this ratio, during a 20 minute treatment the user only receives 10 minutes of dosage. The Hidrex® PSP1000 can be adjusted to extend the ‘on’ ratio compared to the ‘off’ ratio, for example 90% on 10% off, which gives an incredibly more efficient pulsed current treatment. A 20 minute treatment in ‘P90’ gives the user 18 minutes of dosage which is close to Direct Current efficiency and is a major breakthrough in treatment.
This ability to adjust the pulse range increases effectiveness, compared to other pulsed current machines, and comfort compared to Direct Current treatment. Variable Pulsed Current is the most effective form of current and allows optimal consideration of individual needs and sensitivities of the user. For the treatment of younger users or patients with sensitive or secondary skin conditions such as eczema, treating in Variable Pulsed Current is the best choice.
As Seen on TV
Hidrex® Iontophoresis Machines have featured and been recommended by the Medical Team on Channel Four’s Embarrassing Bodies Series 5, for treating excessive sweating. The Hidrex® has also appeared on ‘Live from the Clinic’ in both May 2012 and May 2014. The patients featured in the award winning documentary, were advised to use a Hidrex® machine for Plantar Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the feet) and Axillae Hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) by the show’s doctors and the results were amazing.

Contra-Indications for Iontophoresis
Tap water Iontophoresis (sometimes referred to as TWI) is a proven, non-invasive and drug free treatment for Hyperhidrosis. It is an extremely successful therapy that should be considered if high quality maximum strength antiperspirants are unable to control sweat levels. Iontophoresis is very much the next step treatment for excessive sweating and should be attempted before considering surgery or injections. Please do not use Iontophoresis treatment if you:
- have a heart pacemaker
- have an ICD (implanted cardio-defibrillator)
- are pregnant
- are fitted with a coil
- have large metal implants in the area
- have large skin cuts
- have tumour diseases
- have thrombosis
- have polyneuropathy
- are under 5 years of age
If you are in any way unsure about your suitability, seek advice from your Doctor, Dermatologist or other Healthcare Professional.
Our Hidrex® machines are covered by a 2 year manufacturer-backed guarantee against faulty workmanship.
The warranties on all machines cover the non-consumable items within the iontophoresis kits. This basically means that the most expensive section of the kit (the control panel and power pack) is fully covered, but items that are deemed as consumable, such as the electrodes, sponge covers and pads, are not covered. This is because over time, these consumables may require replacement from normal wear and tear in order to keep the unit serviceable.
Nothing in this warranty affects your statutory consumer rights.
