ABOUT ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound
OVERVIEW OF ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Utilizing ultrasound waves through muscle, nerve, and connective tissue has been well documented as effective in reducing pain, muscle
spasms, and joint contractures.
There are several items that affect the penetration of ultrasound on the target tissues. Please refer to the documentation as a reference on
the appropriate frequency for your clinical needs.
There are 4 sound heads available with the Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound System: 1 cm2, 2 cm2, 5 cm2, and 10 cm2.
Select either 1 or 3.3 MHz frequencies for each applicator (excluding the 1 cm2 applicator). Frequency may be
selected either before or during therapy.
Common Terms
Applicator - The hand held assembly used to deliver ultrasonic energy. The applicator includes the sound head, transducer, and related
electronics.
Beam Non-Uniformity Ratio (BNR) – By nature, an ultrasound beam is not homogeneous. The BNR is a ratio of the highest intensity
found in the beam field to the average intensity as indicated on the output display of the unit. This measure may not exceed 5.0:1.
Because of the areas of increased intensity, the sound head is moved
continuously during the treatment.
Collimating (Coll)- The shape of the ultrasound beam. While neither focused nor dispersed, this ultrasound beam resembles a column
when applied from the unit through the sound head.
Continuous Mode – The output of the ultrasound is not interrupted during the treatment time. This mode imparts the most energy to
the tissues and is used when a maximal effect is desired. (See Duty Cycle).
7
ABOUT ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound
OVERVIEW OF ULTRASOUND THERAPY - COMMON TERMS (continued)
Coupling Media – An agent used to insure that the ultrasound is transmitted from the sound head to the tissue to be treated. Gels or
lotions labeled for therapeutic ultrasound use are recommended.
Duty Cycle – This is the ratio of the “On” time to “Total” time of the cycle, expressed as a percentage. The duty cycle describes the pulsed
modes of ultrasound. The lower the percentage, the lower temporal average intensity. 100% is continuous ultrasound.
Effective Radiating Area (ERA) – A measure of the ultrasound beam made underwater, 5 mm from the radiating
surface of the sound head. The ERA is always smaller than the geometric area of the sound head, but should be as close as possible. This
measurement is used to calculate the ultrasound intensity in W/cm2.
Frequency (Freq) – Selectable to 1 or 3.3 MHz with the 2 cm2, 5 cm2, or 10 cm2 sound head (only 3.3 MHz is available with the 1 cm2
sound head). The lower the frequency, the longer the wavelength, and the deeper the penetration of ultrasound.
Lead Zirconate Titanate – A synthetic crystal used to create the ultrasound beam by vibrating 1,000,000 (1 MHz) or 3,300,000 (3.3 MHz)
times per second. This type of crystal is both durable and efficient in its functions.
Power – A measure of the intensity of the ultrasound delivered to the patient. Unit of measure is watts (W).
Pulse Duration – Refers to the amount of time the ultrasound is being delivered in the pulsed mode. For example, in the 20% duty cycle
mode, the ultrasound is delivered for 2 msec and off for 8 msec (at 100 Hz) throughout the treatment period.
Pulse Frequency – The pulse frequency is the number of pulses per second and is expressed in hertz. The available pulse frequency on
the Intelect TranSport Ultrasound is 100 Hz.
8
ABOUT ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound
OVERVIEW OF ULTRASOUND THERAPY - COMMON TERMS (continued)
Pulsed Mode – The output of the ultrasound is automatically interrupted during the treatment time. This limits the amount of energy
delivered to the tissues.
Sound Head – The aluminum face of the applicator that contacts the patient’s skin. It covers a transducer
mechanism that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy in the form of a vibrating crystal.
Ultrasound Intensity – Ultrasound power delivered to the patient expressed in total power as watts (W) or in terms of the sound head’s
effective radiating area, watts per centimeter squared (W/cm2).
Description of Ultrasonic Field
The spatial distribution of the radiated field is essentially a collimated beam of the ultrasonic energy having a cross-sectional area of 8.5
cm2 for the 10 cm2 sound head when measured at a point 5 mm from the transducer face.
The energy distribution within the radiated field is 3.0 W/cm2 maximum and it takes a generally conic shape, having decreasing intensity
at progressively increasing distance from the face of the transducer. This field distribution applies for the radiation emitted into the equivalent of an infinite medium of distilled, degassed water at 30° C and with the line voltage variations in the range of 10% of the rated line
voltage.

10
ABOUT ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound
Additional Precautions
Potential for Burns
Additional precaution should be used when the ultrasound
is used on patients with the following conditions:
• Over an area of the spinal cord following a laminectomy,
i.e., when major covering tissues have been removed.
• Over anesthetic areas.
• On patients with hemorrhagic diatheses.
It is possible for ultrasound therapy to cause burns if the therapy is
not performed properly. Skin burns can result from one or more of
the following:
• If the intensity (power) is too high.
• If you are using too low a frequency.
• Using a stationary technique (holding the sound head in one
place).
• Moving the sound head too slowly.
• Treating an area with sensory nerve damage (or the loss of
normal skin sensations).
DANGER
Patients with an implanted neurostimulation device must not be treated with or
be in close proximity to any shortwave diathermy, microwave diathermy, therapeutic ultrasound diathermy or laser diathermy anywhere on their body. Energy
from diathermy (shortwave, microwave, ultrasound and laser) can be transferred
through the implanted neurostimulation system, can cause tissue damage and
can result in severe injury or death. Injury, damage or death can occur during diathermy therapy even if the implanted neurostimulation system is turned "off."
• Desensitized areas can be overheated or burned without the
patient’s knowledge. Use extreme caution with these patients
(e.g., diabetes, neural damage, etc.).
• Bony prominences are especially vulnerable: they reflect sound
waves and increase intensity to the periosteum.

ABOUT ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound
Preventing Overheating of the Sound Heads
reduced and the sound head may overheat.
To prevent the sound head from becoming overheated, do the
following:
Patient Susceptibility
Some patients are more sensitive to ultrasound output and may
experience a reaction similar to a heat rash. Be sure to inspect the
treatment area during and following treatment, and discontinue if
an adverse reaction does occur.
• Check to be sure proper contact is being made throughout the
treatment.
• When treating in water, make sure that the sound head is
completely under water.
Output Power
Choose a lower watt setting to reduce output or select a pulsed
duty cycle. Higher output levels have a greater potential for
patient discomfort.
• For direct coupling, you may need to apply more conductive gel
or lotion during the treatment to achieve better coupling.
• You can also reduce the power or duty cycle during the
treatment if you are treating an area where it is difficult to obtain
good coupling.
Coupling
Coupling is described as contact between the sound head and
the treatment site and may be accomplished through the use of
a coupling agent, such as gel, lotion or water (underwater treatments only). Anything used as a coupling agent must be highly
conductive. Air is a very poor conductor of ultrasonic waves.
Preventing Adverse Effects
Perform the following procedures to avoid the negative effects of
ultrasound therapy.
Head Max. Temp. Disclaimer
Head Max. Temp. is for the protection of the equipment, not for
the protection of the patient.
Sound Head Movement
If movement of the sound head is too slow, the patient may feel
periosteal pain characterized by a deep ache or pain. If motion
is too fast, or if the sound head does not maintain good contact
with the skin, the therapeutic effect of the sound waves will be

irritation.
To prepare the patient’s skin for ultrasound therapy, do the following:
1.
Thoroughly wash the skin on which you intend to place the sound head with mild
soap and water.
2.
Dry the skin thoroughly.
