Unit shipped on time with no problems, arrived in excellent condition. Unit comes with sm tube of ultrasound gel, instructions for use, DC adapter, and carrying case. Please not this is not a high quality professional unit you would find on a rehab floor costing over a thousand dollars. It is a good quality home/portable unit for the money. The unit provides a pulsed wave at maximum intensity of 50% ( as per literature). Settings available are on/off, 5 min, 10 min, 15 min duration, low, medium and high.As per literature this unit is NOT submersible in water I do not represent this company. I am very familiar with the use and application of therapeutic ultrasound. Please note: Most states require licensing to perform US on another person. I recommend that the user be trained by a licensed medical professional familiar with the application of therapeutic ultrasound for safe use and maximum benefit. Do not drop or bang the unit or leave it on or plugged in when not in use. The sound head contains a crystal that is easily damaged. Ultrasound is usually sub sensory, meaning you don't feel it. you may feel a slight warming effect on the skin (this is usually from the friction created by moving it over the skin) if used properly. There must be adequate amount of gel between the skin and the sound head, especially over boney areas, and the unit must be moved constantly in small circular motion over the target area. If this is not done the unit (as most do) will turn off and start to blink (as per literature). When performing the ultrasound do not put pressure on the sound head so as to squeeze all of the gel out from under the sound head-the unit will turn off- the weight of the unit against the skin is sufficient, and keep the sound head flat against the skin. wipe the unit off when finished to remove the gel, spray a paper towel with some windex and wipe clean. I recommend that you purchase additional ultra sound gel /lotion as you will need this in the future to operate the unit. Please consult a professional before use. You can cause an internal burn if not used properly (even with a pulsed unit). In addition there are precautions/contraindications for use that should be cleared by a professional familiar with its therapeutic use. This is not a complete list: Over growth plates of children, Children under 16, the very old or frail, over a pacemaker/defibrillator.over infection/cancer, trunk of a pregnant woman, over metal implant, over impaired/broken/thin skin, those with sensory impairment, over a unhealed fracture etc. In addition prolonged use of ultra sound on a target area can cause bone demineralization/weakening. The mechanical effect of the sound waves effects the tissue and capillary permeability reducing pain and inflammation (overly simplified explanation). I do recommend this unit for home use, just seek a professional to be properly trained in its use before using.
My husband stays very active and always has back and shoulder pain at the end of the work day. This heating pad is great because it is large enough to cover both shoulders and upper back, plus the moist heat is so much better than the regular heating pads. Only wish the timer was for longer than the maximum of 60 minutes. That is the only drawback. We still give it a 5 star rating, because it does the job!
Unit shipped and arrived on time without problem. I am very familiar with the use of these types of products I do not represent this company. This is an excellent price for this type of unit. You get 4 types of wave forms. Multiple applications, excellent alternative for acute and chronic pain management for those who cannot take NSAIDS, and for muscle spasm and reeducation. Easy to use and set up. Recommend that your purchase extra pack of 40 electrodes ( you will need to purchase addition self adhering electrodes for prolonged use, as this unit -like most-only come with 2 disposable self adhering electrodes which may last 2 weeks of repeated use- this is normal), an additional 9volt battery, and an extra set of lead wires ( the lead wires commonly fail and this causes many people to believe the units themselves are failing). Also recommend that you consult a physical therapist for proper use, setting and electrode placement for maximum benefit and safe use. I purchased this unit for my father for the management of chronic low back pain and chronic knee pain. He is unable to take NSAIDS due to the use of blood thinners and stomach ulcers. It has helped to reduce the pain to manageable levels. This unit came with instructions for use, 9 volt battery, d/c adapter, 1 pack of electrodes, one set of lead wires (2 wires with 2 prongs for electrode attachment)), carrying/storage case. This unit has 2 channels, TENS, IF, Micro current and EMS, simple on off and dual channel intensity controls. Very happy with this purchase. would purchase again and recommend to others.
