I had the same problem so I attached the electrodes to two pieces of folded up aluminum foil and put them on the floor under my desk and put my feet on them. Some people don't like this idea, they think that the aluminum might be absorbed through the skin. I think the dangers of aluminum are probably exaggerated anyway because I have many elderly neighbors who have been using aluminum cookware for more than 50 years and they're just fine. Besides I only do the 7/20x3 once a day. Pat.
