The portable US-1000 3rd Edition is a therapeutic ultrasound device that generates deep ultrasonic waves within body tissues to treat pain, muscle spasms, and joint stiffness.
Unlike electrical modalities, ultrasound is unique in that the longitudinal waveform associated with sound is not electromagnetic in nature. The piezoelectric crystal converts electrical energy into a strong vibratory sound wave, or ultrasound, a sound beyond the normal range of human hearing. Sound waves cause vibration in soft tissue cells, increasing temperature, and inducing vasodilation, to give you the relief you need – all controllable with 3 different power output settings! Treatment duration is determined by a medical practitioner, and may range from 5-10 minutes depending on the conditions treated and anatomic target site. Because air is a very poor sound conductor, ultrasound gels are used to conduct the sound wave energy to the skin.
This portable ultrasound unit is a great choice for non-invasive pain relief. No more pain meds or pills, this unit is similar to the one used in your Chiropractor’s or Physical Therapist’s office, but made for your home.
