Frequently Asked Questions


Q:  I can’t get my lights to stay on! Is my device broken?

Q: Can I sterilize my ErgoSharp?

A: No – full sterilization (Sterilizer, autoclave, cold solution, etc.) will damage the ErgoSharp! Only disinfect ErgoSharp by wiping it down between patients. The device is made to tolerate wiping but do not saturate the surface. Damage from sterilization will not be covered under warranty.


Q: Do I throw my sticky pad away after each use?
