No. According to FDA guidelines, the electrodes pose a threat of cross-contamination if used on multiple patients.

How many Axelgaard electrodes can be used at one time?
The amount of electrodes used at a single time depends entirely on the individual, any potential health conditions, and the size and strength utilized in a session.

Are Axelgaard electrodes disposable?
