Homemade iontophoresis machine for Palmar hyperhidrosis

Palmar hyperhidrosis is a condition that has a big impact on people's lives because they have sweaty palms.
If antiperspirants have not been effective you can try iontophoresis which involves buying a machine that costs from $400 to $2500 in which you immerse your hands.
Alternatively you can make your own device to perform iontophoresis at home. It will cost you less than $100 with a simple power supply. If you have a need for a sophisticated power supply this can be about $250 but you have a laboratory standard device for experiments.
The device utilises pans of water to conduct a very small electrical current through the skin's surface.
Power supply. Jaycar sells this power supply for $175 but you can buy a simple one for $37.

Why Shorten is on the right track.

My past family members improved their lives by working - HARD

My family has convict members who came to Australia from England and Ireland soon after the colony was begun in Sydney. The first two were a man who arrived in Sydney in 1793 and was then sent to Norfolk Island. The second was a woman who arrived in 1796 and also went to Norfolk Island.
