Drionic is a long established, American manufactured, iontophoresis device which has gained worldwide acceptance in its use for the treatment of hand and foot sweating. Iontophoresis is a process where ions that occur naturally in tap water are pushed toward the skin by a low voltage electro-magnetic field.
