EQultrasound is a low frequency ultrasound device aimed at treating muscle, joint, ligament and tendon pathologies in the equestrian horse.

 

EQUltrasound is a device for a non-invasive treatment generated through the emission of ultrasound, able to produce a temperature increase in the tissues, through the conversion of a source of acoustic energy into heat within the tissues. The passage of energy in the tissues is transformed into heat due to the mechanical friction of the molecules.

The device stimulates and accelerates the natural physiological processes aimed at tissue repair, recovery of cellular homeostasis and restoration of function, thus allowing a better and faster natural resolution of the disease.

EQultrasound therapy can be associated with other veterinary techniques, thus determining the optimisation of rehabilitation times, improving their effectiveness and speeding up a full recovery of competitive activity.

EQultrasound

Ultrasound can be used in three forms:

Continuous: for the increase in temperature of deep tissues;
Pulsed: for the activation of non-thermal physiological effects;
Sonophoresis: as a guiding agent for transdermal delivery of topical drugs.

 

 

The treatments

  • Arthropathies: Arthritis, Arthrosis, Adhesive Capsulitis
  • Calcification: Muscular, Tendinea, Osteophytes
  • Myofascial pains: Trigger Points, Tender Points
  • Tendinopathy: Bursitis, Fasciitis, Tendinitis, Tendinosis
  • Pulled muscle: Elongations, Contractures, Fibrosis
  • Pulled TLH: Tendon, Ligaments, Haematomas
  • Toxemia: Acidosis, Toxicosis

The benefits

  • improvement of joint mobility
  • greater elasticity of tendons and ligaments
  • reduction of muscle pain and inflammatory processes (analgesic action)
  • reduction of pain caused by bone proliferation, improvement/optimisation of the bone remodelling process
  • scar tissue treatments

 


 

THE TRANSDUCERS

 

FLAT PULSED

Diam. 50 mm
Pulsed wave
Defocused beam

 

Mechanism of action:
cavitation, streaming effect, mechanical vibration. For the treatment of diseases where heat is not allowed (acute inflammation).

Suitable for:
Traumas of the musculoskeletal apparatus.
Inflammation and swelling of the musculoskeletal system.
Drainage of oedemas and haematomas in the acute phase.

PULSED CONCAVE

Diam. 50 mm
Pulsed wave
Focused beam

 

Mechanism of action:
equivalent to the flat pulsed transducer but with a focused and more powerful beam to make a deeper penetration, it is the most suitable transducer in the treatment of round surfaces.

Suitable for:
Arthritis.
Localised oedemas.

CONTINUOUS FLAT

Diam. 50 mm
Pulsed wave
Fascio defocalizzato

 

Mechanism of action:
cavitation, streaming effects, diathermic effect. For the treatment of diseases where heat is allowed.

Suitable for:
Resolution of chronic inflammatory processes.
Acute muscular disorders (tensions, contractures, elongations)

 

CONTINUOUS CONCAVE

Diam. 50 mm
Continuous wave

Focused beam

 

Mechanism of action:
equivalent to the flat pulsed transducer but with a focused and more powerful beam to make a deeper penetration, it is the most suitable transducer in the treatment of round surfaces.

Suitable for:
Arthritis.
Localised oedemas

CONVEX TRIGGER

Diam. 18 mm
Pulsed wave
Defocused beam

 

Mechanism of action:
Suitable for the treatment of small concave areas and surrounding tissues. Specialised for soft and muscle tissues.

Suitable for:
Tendon calcifications.
Stimulation of trigger points.

TRIGGER CONCAVE

Diam. 22 mm
Pulsed wave
Focused beam

 

Mechanism of action:
Specialised for tendons and ligaments.

Suitable for:
Tendon calcifications.
Stimulation of trigger points.
