How can I minimize gel spread?
Ensure that the Quell band isn’t wrapped too tightly around the leg, as that will contribute to gel spread. The electrode shouldn’t leave an imprint on the leg after it is removed. If it does, loosen the band slightly. Remove the device when not in use to allow the electrode gel to cool. Minimize use outdoors during hot, humid weather when possible. Be mindful about where the device and electrodes are stored in hot and humid weather, i.e., a hot car. In some cases, it may help to alternate between two electrodes (if you switch the device at the 5 -hour or “long-term wear” alert, for example) to minimize the amount of gel migration that may result from extended sessions. Issues with gel spread are less frequent during cooler, drier months.
