19. Sanitization Procedure

Fourth Frontier

Last Update a year ago

The Frontier X2 device and strap can be easily and effectively sanitized by using a mild soap solution. This is the preferred method: 


Salt and dirt on your electrodes can affect the data quality of your recordings.


  1. Sanitize your hands first prior to handling the device
  2. Add 3 drops of liquid soap (hand wash soap that is commonly available) to 500 ml of room temperature or cold water, and create a frothy solution
  3. Soak the device for 20 seconds, rub the device thoroughly in the soap solution; remove the device, rinse with clean water, wipe with a soft cloth, and shake dry.
  4. Soak the strap for 2-3 minutes, rub the strap thoroughly and gently in the soap solution
  5. Remove the strap from the soap solution; soak and rub the strap gently for about 20 seconds in clean water to remove the soapy residue, then hang to dry.


If soap is not available at your location, use an alcohol-based sanitizer, such as commonly available hand sanitizer, that contains at least 70% isopropyl alcohol:


  1. Sanitize your hands first prior to handling the device
  2. Dispense 1 drop of sanitizer on either side of the device; dispense 1 drop into the USB port opening as well; rub device surface thoroughly and gently for about 20-30 seconds with a soft cloth.
  3. Set device aside to dry for 2 minutes, then wipe with a clean soft cloth
  4. Dispense 5-6 drops into a soft cloth, rub both surfaces of the strap gently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds to spread the sanitizer throughout the fabric.
  5. Set the strap aside for 2 minutes, then wipe with a clean soft cloth.

WARNING:


1. Do not use other chemicals or wipes (that are not soap or Isopropyl Alcohol based)

2. Do not use a washing machine to clean the strap or the device.

3. Do not use abrasive materials (that are not soft lint or cloth) to wipe the device and strap.

4. Do not wring the strap while washing.

5. Do not soak the device for any longer than 30 seconds.

6. Do not soak the strap for any longer than 3 minutes.
