In general, the professional and high quality ECG lead wire is very soft. It will not soften in the high temperature environment in summer, nor will it harden in the low temperature environment in winter. It can be twisted at will and will not break.

Therefore, how to consumers to identify the advantages and disadvantages of lead wire products, test the softness of the product.

In addition, consumers should also observe the scale of the manufacturer and the production environment. Only those sites with empty and clean standards can have the conditions for producing qualified products.
