The Fischer vs. DERMADRY
Even better: RA Fischer Co. is able to work directly with insurance companies to get the cost of the device covered for patients, whereas Dermadry is only available out-of-pocket.
Read on for technical comparisons.
RA Fischer Co. Vs. Dermadry Canada
While both The Fischer and the Dermadry are FDA-approved tap water iontophoresis devices, there are quite a few differences that make The Fischer device and RA Fischer Co. stand out.
Here is why that's important:
– Dr. Rolf Eilers
The Fischer was the first iontophoresis device that revolutionized the way iontophoresis could treat hyperhidrosis with our silicon-graphite electrodes. Patients no longer need to worry about metal allergies or contaminant buildup on metal electrodes.
Since its introduction in 2020, The Fischer has inspired other companies to integrate similar features into their designs. The latest version of the Dermadry machine, for instance, now includes silicone electrodes.
However, the quality of these electrodes varies from the original design of The Fischer.
Unlike The Fischer’s sturdy silicon-graphite electrodes, the Dermadry machine features thin electrodes with a grid pattern. This distinction can result in reduced treatment efficiency and an increase in the chance of shock or burn.
This reduces the total treatment time in half, making The Fischer 2x as fast as the Dermadry.
IS IONTOPHORESIS COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Yes, The Fischer from RA Fischer Co. is able to be covered by insurance companies. We are able to work directly with many insurance carriers to get the Fischer device covered for patients. Our Treatment Specialists are able to check your insurance coverage and explain the next steps.
The Dermadry device is not covered by insurance.

RESTRICTED VS CUSTOMIZABLE TREATMENT LEVELS
In the comparison of Dermadry and RA Fischer Co.’s The Fischer iontophoresis device, a key distinguishing factor is their mA settings. Dermadry offers preset mA levels, providing a standardized approach to treatment.
In contrast, The Fischer offers adjustable mA levels, allowing for a more personalized and tailored treatment experience that can cater to the specific needs of each individual user. This flexibility in mA settings with The Fischer enables users to fine-tune their treatment intensity for optimal comfort and effectiveness. This feature sets The Fischer apart in offering a more customizable approach to iontophoresis therapy.

Is the Fischer right for you?
Compared to narrow metal electrodes or compact iontophoresis options, the proportions of The Fischer’s water bath trays, pH-balancing foam inserts, and silicone-graphite electrodes conveniently accommodate simultaneous treatment of hands and feet without sacrificing effectiveness. From our experience here at RA Fischer, dual treatment is especially beneficial for pediatric hyperhidrosis patients. The shorter session duration can help them mentally embrace the treatment, which helps to ensure success. Our Fischer boasts a 98% success rate for patients!
