Studies made by various companies using ultrasonic diagnostic systems of all classes have shown that the Mediagel for ultrasound (Geltek, Russia) does not differ from its Western counterparts in sound conductivity, acoustic impedance or viscosity. Based on the results of the multicenter study, the Association recommends the use of the Mediagel for ultrasound studies in medical institutions of the Russian Federation.

The Elcorapan gel has been in use at our health resort for many years as a contact medium for various physical therapy procedures (phonophoresis and galvanization), as well as for massage. We have noted its high tolerability, the absence of side effects and a favorable trend in clinical manifestations after using it to treat patients with various diseases of the joints, spine and skin. The Elcorapan gel with mineral mud lake salts meets the requirements of modern medical practice, is simple and easy to use, and can be recommended for physiotherapy and home use.

Analysis of the study results has shown that Mediagel:
- Provides a continuous contact between the tranducer and the patient's skin throughout the examination;
- Provides a good acoustic effect;
- Has sufficient viscosity for ultrasound;
- Has no side effects on the skin (doesn't cause allergic reactions);
- Can be easily removed from the surface of the sensor and the patient's skin;

The Prenatal Diagnostics Center of the Maternity Hospital №27 performs all types of ultrasound examinations, and has been using the gels produced by Geltek-Medica for many years. One of company's products is Mediagel, which is regularly used by our physicians in everyday practice. Mediagel meets all the requirements for ultrasound gels:
- It has an optimal viscosity that provides excellent contact between the sensor and the patient's body, and creates the conditions for optimal visualization of the organ under examination.
- The gel is well tolerated by patients, it causes no allergic reactions or irritations of the skin or mucosae.
- Due to its consistency the gel does not spread out on the skin, allowing to select the dose for each patient individually and substantially cut gel consumption without compromising examination quality.
- Does not stain clothes.
- Available in different packaging, depending on the needs of the institution and the nature of the ultrasound procedures.
The Prenatal Diagnostics Center uses Mediagel regularly when examining pregnant women, OB-GYN patients (including transvaginal examinations), newborns, as well as for ultrasound examinations of the abdominal cavity organs, mammary and thyroid glands. Our experience has shown that Mediagel has many positive attributes, no flaws, and can be recommended for widespread clinical use.

The Ultrasound Diagnostics Department of the State Scientific Coloproctology Center has cooperated with Geltek-Medica for many years. Gels manufactured by this company are used at the center for various ultrasound studies. Over the years, our experts have found that the Geltek-Medica Mediagel and Mediagel with Aloe Vera are of high quality, equivalent in their characteristics to their foreign counterparts, and meet all the requirements for ultrasound gels: high acoustic characteristics, optimum viscosity, good sensor sliding, no harmful effects on the sensor working surface, and absence of allergic reactions in patients.
Practical experience with Mediagel with Aloe Vera has shown that it is essential for endorectal and endovaginal examinations, especially for patients with inflammatory diseases of the rectum and menopausal patients, because of the powerful anti-inflammatory and moisturizing effects of Aloe Vera latex. We consider it reasonable to continue the production of Mediagel with Aloe Vera.

Mediagel with Aloe Vera has been in use at the Prenatal Diagnostics Center of the Maternity Hospital №27 since January 2003. The gel has optimum viscosity, which ensure an effective contact between the sensor and the skin of the patient and provides excellent transmission of ultrasound. The gel has a pleasant texture, it does not cause allergic skin reactions and does not stain clothes.
The main advantage of the gel in that it contains Aloe Vera latex. The curative and preventive qualities of Aloe Vera are well known. The latex of this plant is widely used in medicine and cosmetics. Not only does it have a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect, but it also possesses a strong moisturizing impact. Such beneficial qualities set gels with herbal supplements apart from other types of ultrasound gels.
Our practical experience with Mediagel with Aloe Vera has shown that the best results were achieved when dealing with OB-GYN patients that required repeated sonographic examinations using transvaginal probes.We have examined 562 patients in 603 transvaginal studies in total. No negative reactions have been observed in any of these cases. Most of the patients (70%) that underwent echographic examinations due to the presence of inflammatory processes of various localization, including coleitis, noted an improvement in the condition of the mucous membrane and a reduction of the distressing symptoms.
Thus, Mediagel with Aloe Vera not only meets all the requirements for an ultrasound gel, but possesses extra advantages. Mediagel with Aloe Vera can be recommended for wide clinical use in the practice of sonographic studies.

Geltek-Medica products - Mediagel with Aloe Vera (gel for ultrasound studies) and Elcomax (highly conductive electrode contact gel for ECG, EEG and REG studies and defibrillation) have been used by physicians of the FSMI MSU №9 of the FMBA of Russia since 1993. Over the past 12 years, 195416 ultrasound studies, 198219 electrocardiograms and 1608 electroencephalograms have been performed. The gel has good organoleptic properties: its high viscosity allows to achieve optimal skin contact with tranducers, the gel does not contain solid particles or air bubbles, does not deteriorate at room temperature, causes no allergic reactions or skin irritation, and does not stain clothes upon drying.
The use of Mediagel with Aloe Vera in transvaginal probe studies does not cause any discomfort to the patients. Dynamic observation has shown that after performing examinations we have never encountered any development of coleitis or vaginal yeast infections in patients suffering from candidiasis. There were no complaints about the quality of the gel over the entire period of its use. The gel fully measures up to our requirements, and, among other things, provides a perfect balance between price and quality.
Many years of experience in the practical application Geltek-Medica products allows us to recommend the above gels for broad clinical application in ultrasound and functional diagnostics.

I use the Low-molecular hyaluronic acid 2% Gel-Concentrate for ultrasound and galvanic procedures. I really like it - the pump is easy to use, and the texture feels pretty good too. I employ it for the anti-aging program, and I also like to use the gel for treating pronounced crow's feet, applying it with a small spatula. Besides, the gel has proven itself as a good solution for mini-massage, as well as for face-lifting enhancement. It also nourishes the skin really well.

Geltek cosmetics products have proven themselves to be great for both professional and home care. Oily Skin Care Gel, when used regularly, tightens the pores wonderfully without dehydrating the skin, and significantly reduces the level of inflammation.
The NEO Aqua Delight Gel is excellent for treating overtreated, overdried, almost parchment-like skin; within a week the client's skin had been moisturized and began to recover.
The NEO Age Control Gel can perfectly replace a cream.
Desincrustation Lotion is essential for ultasound cleaning. Pectin Revival Gel is the perfect hydrating gel for films.
Natalia Deryagina, "dOKtor" medical center dermatologist
A treatment consisting of applying Pectin Revival Gel for 10 minutes under a film and a 10-minutes phonophoresis using Intensive-Revival Serum + Mature Skin Care 2 Gel had a noticeable lifting effect, which intensified considerably on the following day. The clients noted that the skin became more healthy and smooth. The products have made a most favorable impression.
Oily Skin Care Gel is also well suited for combination skin, as well as for sensitive skin. Its employment has significantly reduced the amount of various rashes and blackheads. I also recommend Hyaluronic Acid and Elastin Tonic. After using it, the skin becomes smooth, moisturized, and very nice to the touch. Also, this gel had a stunning effect when applied under alginate and plastifying masks.

I have been prescribing Demoten since it first appeared on pharmacy shelves. The problem of dealing with demodecosis and couperose has been a long-time concern of patients and doctors, as well. All of the previously used products could cause discomfort, burning or redness when applied. There are no such unpleasant effects when using Demoten. The gel is quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving an oily sheen or weighing the skin down, and moisturizes it very well. It's a perfect foundation for patients prone to couperose, demodecosis and acne. Demoten is suitable for complex treatment of the above conditions, as well as for preventing inflammation after a full-fledged treatment.

About Blepharo Series Products
Complex therapy consisting of anti-allergic treatment, tear replacement, and therapeutic eyelid hygiene (based on applying Blepharoshampoo, Blepharolotion or Blepharowipes, and Blepharogel 1) has a more powerful effect on reducing subjective symptoms and objective signs of chronic ABC (allergic blepharoconjunctivitis) than isolated anti-allergic and tear replacement therapy.

Combined therapy, which includes, in addition to anti-allergic treatment, the use of the Blepharogel 1, makes it possible to achieve a more pronounced and rapid reduction in the intensity of the subjective and objective symptoms of the summer-autumn pollinosic blepharoconjunctivitis than standard therapeutic treatment.
The use of Blepharogel 1 in a complex therapy of the summer-autumn pollinosic blepharoconjunctivitis allows for a greater increase in stability of the tear film than isolated anti-allergic treatment.
Including Blepharogel 1 in a complex treatment of the summer-autumn pollinosic blepharoconjunctivitis can reduce the intensity of the combined lipid- and mucinodeficit, as well as reduce the epitheliopathy phenomena of the eye surface tissues.
Use of Blepharogel 1 in a complex treatment of the summer-autumn pollinosic blepharoconjunctivitis improves the efficiency of the treatment.

According to our data, Blepharogel 1 and 2 are highly effective hygienic products for the treatment of chronic blepharitis of various etiologies. Daily use of Blepharogel for 1.5-2 months significantly improved the quality of life of the patients. Given its good tolerability, Blepharogel 1 and 2 can be recommended for wide use in the ophthalmologist practice for preventing and treating blepharitis and blepharoconjunctivitis of various etiologies, including demodectic, recurrent stye, as well as eye fatigue and dryness.
