Ultrasound

Due to its thermal and mechanical effects, therapeutic ultrasound is mainly used in the orthopedic field to loosen bonded and tense tissue and to stimulate metabolic and self-healing processes. In the context of aesthetic treatments, sound waves can be applied to reduce wrinkles or cellulite.

Therapeutic Ultrasound: Mettler Sonicator® 740
The perfect device for your practiceTherapeutic ultrasound operates at frequencies between 1 and 3 MHz. The frequency determines the intensity of the treatment. The higher the frequency, the lower the penetration depth. The Sonicator® works with a frequency between 1 and 3.3 MHz. Depending on the desired effect, you can choose between continuous or pulsed mode:Enhance microcirculation with continuous modeContinuous sonication of tissue generates heat. Heat develops mainly at boundary layers, i.e., at transition areas between skin, adipose tissue and bones. These reflect sound waves stronger than the surrounding tissue.The body responds to this stimulus by pumping fresh blood to the heated areas to cool them down. The stimulation of blood circulation and the warming effects in deep tissue layers result in pain relief and muscle relaxation.Pulsed mode for massage effectsPulsed sonication primarily creates mechanical pressure.Molecules in the sonicated tissue area experience vibrations and accelerations which have the effect of a high-frequency vibration massage. The maximum penetration depth of this therapeutic ultrasound is approx. 6 cm.Stiff joints and tense muscles can be relaxed by the vibration of sound waves. These vibrations form cavitation bubbles in the body tissue which dissolve locally inflamed and hardened tissue structures.Areas of applicationThermal and mechanical effects cause various physiological changes and stimulate metabolism and self-healing processes.JointsDegenerative rheumatologic joint diseasesCalcificationsSprains FracturesMusclesChronic muscle painMuscle distortions, torn muscle fibersMuscle tension, muscle hardeningTennis/golfer’s elbowTendonsTendon pain and injuries  Nerve and tendon irritations Tendonitis ContracturesSkin / tissueTissue adhesionsPainful scarsDermatological diseases SciaticaBruisesSwellingNervesCarpal tunnel syndromeSciaticaLumbagoAesthetic MedicineSince frequency, intensity and pulse duration can be freely adjusted, the device can also be used in aesthetic medicine. A frequency of 1 MHz is usually required to treat stretch marks or cellulite since the sound waves should penetrate as deep as possible into the tissue.Choose a higher frequency (3.3 MHz)  to treat wrinkles or acne on the face. Facial skin is thinner and tissue can easily be injured. Therefore, a lower penetration depth is required.Technical propertiesFrequency: 1 and 3.3 MHzIntensity: 2.2 W/cm²Penetration depth: Up to 6 cmNumber of applicators: 3Ø Applicators: 10 cm² (22 W)5 cm² (11 W)1 cm² (2,2 W)Modes: Continuous (100%), pulsed (10%, 20%, 50%)Pulse repetition rate: 100 HzPulse duration: 1, 2 or 5 ms Average intensity ratio: 10:1, 5:1 and 2:1 Maximum treatment time: 30 min.Size: 13.5 in x 9.5 in x 7 in

Therapeutic Ultrasound: US Pro 2000™
Designed to treat yourself at home.Therapeutic ultrasound operates at frequencies between 1 and 3 MHz. The frequency determines the intensity of the treatment.

Therefore, it should only be used on the body but not in the face. Tissue layers below the dermis could easily be injured. TreatmentIn order to ensure consistent contact between ultrasound head and body surface, coat the ultrasound head with the provided gel and place it above the affected skin area. Move the transducer continuously.Duration per session: 5-30 minutes depending on area.Number of sessions: 5-15 sessions every second to third day. Later in longer intervals.The healing process takes several weeks.Therapeutic effects are often felt after the first sessions.Technical propertiesFrequency: 1 MHz Intensity and output power (3 levels) (Low) 0.08 W/cm² (0.32 W)(Medium) 0.80 W/cm² (3.20 W)(High) 1.60 W/cm² (6.40 W)Ø Applicator: 4 cm²Modes: Continuous (100%), pulsed (5%, 50%)Treatment time: 5, 10 or 15 minutesSize: 7.95" x 1.93" x 2.76" Weight: 0.43 lbs
