Sanden Electric Co. (or Sanden Electric Belt Co.) was an American-based company that manufactured and sold an electro-galvanic belt, the Sanden Herculex, in markets across the North and South America, as well as Europe and Asia, using various trade names in different cities and regions (such that, for example, advertisements in New York magazines would include offers from a G. B. Sanden while those printed in Boston would be as A. B. Sanden or Toronto as M. F. Sanden). The company was eventually succeeded by the Herculex Co. in the late 1910s.
