Are you looking to treat your hands, feet, or both? Both the MD-1a and MD-2 models are designed for medical treatment of hyperhidrosis. With the MD-1, however, if you’re looking to treat your hands, you will need a partner present to switch the polarity halfway through treatment. Our MD-2 features an automatic polarity switch, so you can treat yourself unaccompanied.
You should also base your choice upon the available features and pricing. If you have questions, our Treatment Specialists are on-call to answer them. We find that talking to a real-person helps provide the best, most accurant guidance based on your insurance coverage, the status of your prescription, etc.
If you want to get technical real quick:
The MD-1 is our classic Galvanic Unit and has been FDA-Approved for over 30-years. Output is manually controlled using an adjustable knob and an analog (needle-type) meter. You can also manually reverse polarity (usually mid-treatment).
The MD-2 is a Digital Galvanic Unit with microprocessor control of all functions and includes automatic current regulation, auto sequenced polarity reversal, a treatment timer with alarm, and 32-character LCD display (aka our latest and greatest with all the bells and whistles).
Both models have great success rates and deliver similalr treatments. However, we’ve been doing this a long time, and from our experience, we’ve found the MD-2 to be more popular with kids, teenagers, and Millenials for its ease of use.
