If you're in the market for a portable ultrasound unit in order to deliver ultrasound therapy at home, OTC Wholesale can help. Home ultrasound units deliver deep heat to body tissues and provide relief from medical conditions like pain, muscle spasms and joint contractures. These units work essentially by generating sound waves, which cause vibration in the soft tissue, which, in turn, increases temperature and induces vasodilation. And increased vasodilation means increased blood flow to the treated area. Our line of ultrasound units includes muscle stimulators and TENS units, as well as electrodes and accessories, like transmission gel and conductive gel. These accessories in particular help improve the patient experience overall and prolong the life of the ultrasound unit. Look for brands like Aquasonic, BodyMed, Current Solutions, Roscoe Medical and Sombra from OTC Wholesale at unbeatable prices. We also carry superior quality Muscle Stimulators, TENS Units, TENS Electrodes, and other TENS Unit Accessories at the lowest prices on the net.

Ultrasound Units generate deep heat through a piezoelectric crystal sound heads. 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 our hearing. Sound waves cause vibration in soft tissue cells, increasing temperature and inducing vasodilation.
Portable Ultrasounds give you advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves that are transferred to a specific body area viw a sound-headed probe. The Pulsed Sound Waves travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation, which helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Theraputic Ultrasound is found to help reduce muscle spasms and joint contractures and is one of the most frequently used therapies by physicians and physical therapists.
Because air is a very poor sound conductor ultrasound gels are used to conduct the wave energy to the skin. It is water soluable and will not irritate skin or damage the ultrasound applicator.
Treatment duration is determined by the medical practitioner and may range from 2-5 minutes depending on the conditions treated and anatomic target site.
The sound waves travel deep into tissue and create gentle heat. In turn, the heat induces vasodilation: drawing blood into the target tissues. Most patients will feel nothing at all during treatment, while some patients may feel a very slight warmth.
