Sonopulse (1 MHz and 3 MHz) is equipment microcontrolled by therapeutic ultrasound, designed for esthetics and physical rehabilitation treatments.
The ultrasound emission mode can be adjusted in continuous or pulsed; the pulsed mode with pulse repetition frequency of 100 Hz, 48 Hz or 16 Hz and pulse ratio of 1/2 (50%) and 1/5 (20%).
O equipment presents a PROG key, which allows the choice of 46 pre-programmed treatment protocols and 20 private protocols.
Sonopulse (1 MHz and 3 MHz) must be used with coupling gel. The wavelength of 1 MHz reaches an approximate depth of 5 cm and the wavelength of 3 MHz reaches a depth in the tissue of approximately 1 to 2 cm.
The equipment also presents an ergonomic transducer with double function, which consists of the choice of effective radiation area (ERA) of 7cm² or of 3cm²; ERA of 7cm² which allows the selection of frequency of 1 MHz or 3 MHz, with maximum power of 3W; ERA of 3cm² which presents frequency of 1MHz, with maximum power of 3W; inlet for combined therapy and a larger graphic display, which facilitates the identification of protocols and programs.
The equipment must be used only under prescription and supervision of a licensed professional.
