What is a home ultrasound machine?
Home Ultrasound Machines are portable handheld ultrasounds that produce deep heat (which you do not feel) in the tissues, muscles and joints, through a 1 MHz transducer. The 1 MHz can penetrate to a maximum depth of 7cm and is best used for both acute and chronic conditions, muscle and tendon injuries, muscle nerve pain, arthritis and joint pain.
HOW DOES ULTRASOUND WORK ?
Ultrasound is applied to the body using the ultrasound applicator, an ultrasound gel or couplant is used to transmit the ultrasound waves into the surrounding tissues. The vibration or cavitation will be absorbed deep within these tissues and muscle structures, when using the 1 MHz ultrasound.
