About Us

ETD_1439The company was first established as PENTRACO LTD. in 1974, with support from the China State Enterprises Export Corporation to introduce Chinese medical equipment and instruments into the North American market. Several successful business relationships were pioneered with major U.S. companies, including American Hospital Supply Corp., American Dental and Weck Surgical.

As the product lines evolved, Electro-Therapeutic Devices (ETD) Inc. was set up in 1981 to meet the growing market in the holistic and home health-care field.

ETD’s core business is serving the holistic health care industry. Our aim is to encourage and enhance the practice of acupuncture through research support, and the continual offering of superior products.

Important information for practitioners!

As the rules for people practicing acupuncture and other therapeutic treatments become more widely regulated, it is increasingly important to be aware of the tools you buy for your practice.

You can search on the Health Canada website for acupuncture needles or devices, which are registered with Health Canada.

There are many brands of needles and electro-therapeutic equipment available from supplies, which may NOT be registered.

Why is it important?

Health Canada reviews medical devices to assess their safety, effectiveness and quality before being authorized for sale in Canada. Using a non-registered medical device (including acupuncture needles) does not guarantee these standards are met. This is important not only for your patients, but also your practice.
