DescriptionMedical Products Online US Pro 2000 is our most powerful and deeply penetrating Ultrasound unit that we sell. This home ultrasound unit is as close to what the professionals use as possible and yet even safer than most other models! Therapeutic Ultrasound is an excellent way to reduce deep and painful inflammation, joint restriction and swelling. Unlike electrical modalities, Ultrasound uses deeply penetrating and soothing sound waves that cause gentle microscopic vibration to loosen scarred and tangled muscle, tendon and ligament fibers.

How Does Ultrasound Work?
The Medical Products Online US Pro 2000 is an Ultrasound device that generates high frequency sound waves (1MHz). These sound waves are applied and transferred from the skin surface of the area being treated in Pulsed mode by a Sound Head. The Sound Head is moved across the surface in a circular pattern thereby allowing the sound waves to travel into the tissues below. Sound waves cause virtually unperceivable vibration, helping the tissues to relax and untangle. Circulation is also enhanced through the process known as vasodilation, and removal of cellular toxins is enhanced which enhances healing, reduces swelling, restriction and pain.
Treatment duration is determined by the medical practitioner and may range from 2 to 5 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 wave energy to the skin.
DIRECTIONS FOR USING PULSE ULTRASOUND THERAPY EQUIPMENT
1. Connect power wire to wire socket.
2. Connect AC adaptor to power.
3. Apply sufficient gel to skin at target area.
4. Switch on the power of your portable ultrasound machine. The default modulate duty cycle is 30%, indicator light of L level is on; When the default working time becomes 0, the indicator light is off.
5. Press the MODE button, Modulate duty cycle is adjustable (30%,40%, 50%).
6. Press the TIME button and set the working time. The time indictor light is on, and the device starts working.
7. Place the treatment head on the skin and move it slowly over the target area in a circular motion or in linear strokes at a rate of about 1 inch per second. DO NOT stop moving treatment head while in use.
8. Use special care on bony prominence's to avoid discomfort.
9. The power automatically turns off after the timer runs out or, if desired, the power can be turned off sooner by pushing the ON/OFF switch to OFF.
10. After using the Medical Products Online US Pro 2000 - Professional Home Ultrasound System, clean skin with water to remove gel.
11. Wipe excess gel off the treatment head with a damp cloth. Disinfect treatment head with antiseptic wipe. Do not immerse treatment head in water or solvent.
12. When power shuts off, leave unit off for 30 minutes before restarting unit.
13. After every treatment with the Ultrasound machine, disconnect AC adaptor from power source.
14. Do not impact the treatment head or drop ultrasound therapy equipment treatment head on the floor.

What is Therapeutic Ultrasound?
Therapeutic Ultrasound is a method of stimulating tissue beneath the skin's surface using sound waves. It is a very high frequency massage that can penetrate up to 5" below the surface of your skin.
The sound waves are of a very high frequency, typically between 800,000Hz and 2,000,000Hz. The sound cannot be heard by humans or animals. Humans can only hear sounds up to about 20,000Hz. This very high frequency sound affects very small molecules though like medicines and cells in your body and actually causes them to move.
How ultrasound energy is transferred into the body is a function of many factors. The frequency of the ultrasound waves is actually opposite to how deep they will penetrate the body. A 1MHz ultrasound will penetrate about 4" below the skin whereas a 2MHz ultrasound unit will only penetrate about 2".
While a low frequency means deeper penetration, using too low a frequency will mean that the waves are too wide to properly move the molecules. The frequency also has a significant impact on the phonophoretic properties of the ultrasound. Ultrasound Device is specially tuned to a frequency that maximizes nutrient penetration, energy transfer and phonophoresis.
Intensity Power output is another significant factor to consider when using a home ultrasound machine. It is measured in watts per square centimeter. The higher the power, the more energy is transferred into the body. If too high a power output is used and an ultrasound unit is left sitting still on the body, it is possible to burn the tissue beneath the skin.
While several professional home ultrasound therapy machines are capable of these high powers, your medical practitioner will typically use a low power setting. More power is not necessarily better. Practitioners usually use a higher power to speed up treatment though it is actually more effective to use a lower power setting for a longer period of time.
PEAK INTENSITY VS. AVERAGE INTENSITY
The power output rating of a portable ultrasound machine is often broken down into two separate units, peak intensity and average intensity. Peak intensity can be thought of as how tall the waves are that are being sent into your body. The waves need to be large enough to affect the tissue and provide the desired massage effect. At the same time, your body tissue needs breaks between groups of waves to cool down.
Ultrasound machines actually send the waves in groups giving your body a vibrate-rest-vibrate-rest effect. The average intensity is a measure of how much energy is transferred over a period vibrate-rest cycles.
Often Ultrasound therapy equipment provides a Total Power Output rating. High power units are typically used with large applicator heads to do larger parts of the body. The important measurement part of ultrasound is the watts per square centimeter mentioned above, not the total unit power.
Again, it is more effective to treat the affected area more frequently and for longer periods with lower power, which is why a Portable Ultrasound Machine is an excellent device to carry with you.
Wave form refers to the shape of signal generating the ultrasound wave. Common wave forms are saw-tooth, square wave, and sinusoidal. The wave form impacts the frequency, intensity, and power of a unit as discussed above altering the effectiveness of the ultrasound treatment. Correct wave form is also very important for phonophoresis as the ultrasound waves drive the medication through the tissue.
WHY DOES HOME ULTRASOUND THERAPY REQUIRE ULTRASOUND GEL?
When applied directly to the skin, an ultrasound head cannot effectively transfer the sound waves into the body. To make it work properly, a conductive medium is required -ultrasound gel. The gel simply makes it possible for the sound waves to travel from the unit head into your body. Ultrasound without gel is ineffective and can damage the ultrasound machine.
