Common Terms
Applicator - This apparatus is the hand held assembly used to deliver ultrasonic energy. The applicator includes the sound head,
transducer, and related electronics.
Accommodation - This condition is where nerves lose their ability (sensitivity) to respond to electrotherapy.
Amplitude Modulation (Ampl. Mod.) - Amplitude Modulation is an increase and decrease in intensity during treatment. For example, at
an 80% amplitude modulation, with the intensity set to 10 mA, the intensity decreases to 2 mA, and then increases to 10 mA throughout
the treatment. The available amplitude modulations are 40%, 60%, 80%, 100%, and Static (none).
14
OVERVIEW
Intelect® Transport Combo
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.
Beat Fixed - Associated with the Interferential waveform, Beat Fixed is the parameter at which the beat frequency remains constant. When
the Sweep setting is turned off, you must select a fixed beat for the therapy session. The available settings for Beat Fixed are 1 to 200 Hz.
Beat Frequency - Associated with the Interferential waveform, Beat Frequency is the frequency at which the amplitude of the current
increases and decreases. The beat frequency is considered to be the therapeutic frequency and is measured in hertz (Hz).
Beat High - During a sweep, the Beat High setting is the highest number to which the beat frequency increases. The available range for
the Beat High parameter is 2 to 200 Hz. This parameter is unique to the Premodulated and Interferential waveforms.
Beat Low - During a sweep, the Beat Low setting is the lowest number to which the beat frequency decreases. The available range for the
Beat Low parameter is 1 to 199 Hz. This parameter is unique to the Premodulated and Interferential waveforms.
Burst - A burst is a series of pulses at a predetermined pulse frequency.
Burst Frequency (Freq.) - This is the number of bursts per second (bps). The available burst frequencies on the Intelect Transport Combo
are 1 to 10 bps.
Carrier Frequency (Freq.) - Associated with the Interferential, Premodulated and Russian waveforms, Carrier Frequency is the frequency
of the un-modulated medium frequency current. The carrier frequency for Premodulated and Russian is at a fixed frequency of 2500 Hz.
The available carrier frequencies for Interferential are 2000, 2500, 4000 and 5000 Hz.
CC/CV - This is the abbreviation for Constant Current/Constant Voltage. Constant current is a stimulator capable of delivering an electric
current that flows at the same amplitude regardless of changes in tissue impedance over time. Constant voltage is a stimulator capable of
delivering a source of voltage at the same amplitude regardless of changes in tissue impedance over time. Keep in mind that the amount
of stimulation is directly proportional to the current.
Channel Mode - The available channel modes are Single Channel (in which electrotherapy is distributed from one channel), Reciprocal
(where electrotherapy alternates between channels), and Co-Contract (where electrotherapy is distributed from both channels at the same
time).

Clinical Library- Select this button to access the following functions: Retrieve User Protocols, Restore Factory Settings, Restore Factory
Protocols, Language and View Unit Information.
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).
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.
Cycle Time - Cycle Time is the alternating time which the current is "on" and "off." Using the 10/30 setting as an example, the current is on
for 10 seconds and off for 30. The available cycle times are Continuous, 5/5, 4/12, 10/10, 10/20, 10/30, and 10/50.
Display - Available only on the High Voltage Pulsed Current (HVPC) waveform, the Display feature allows you to change the displayed
Intensity parameter from Volts to Peak Current (Amps).
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 electric stimulation and ultrasound. The lower the percentage, the lower temporal average intensity. 100% is continuous
electrotherapy. The available Duty Cycles are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50%.
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 (Electrotherapy) - Frequency is the number of times per second a pulse, cycle, burst, or beat will repeat itself. The unit is
selectable from 1-200 Hz (beat), 20-100 Hz (burst), and 2000-5000 Hz (carrier).
Frequency (Ultrasound) – Selectable to 1 or 3.3 MHz with the 2 cm2, 5 cm2, or 10 cm2 sound head (excluding the 1 cm2 sound head).
The lower the frequency, the longer the wavelength, the deeper the penetration of ultrasound.
Frequency Modulation (Freq. Mod.) - This is the rhythm at which a frequency changes. The available frequency modulations are 0 to
250 Hz in increments of 5 Hz.
16
OVERVIEW
Intelect® Transport Combo

1000 Hz, but lower than 5000 Hz.
Operating Channels - Operating Channels are the paths by which the electrotherapy is distributed from the unit to the patient. The unit
provides two channels of electrical stimulation.
Phase Duration - This is the time in which the current flows in one direction only. Phase duration is the determined period of time
elapsing from the beginning to the end of one phase, usually expressed in microseconds (µsec) or milliseconds (ms).
Polarity - Polarity refers to the charge of an individual lead: positive or negative.
Polarity Reversal - This is a feature available on the unit in which the polarity changes at a determined time.
Power – A measure of the intensity of the ultrasound delivered to the patient. The unit of measure is watts (W).
Protocol – A group of parameters (e.g., Frequency, Duty Cycle, etc.) unique to a form of therapy (i.e., electrotherapy or ultrasound).
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 frequencies for
ultrasound therapy is 100 Hz.
17
OVERVIEW
Intelect® Transport Combo
Pulsed Mode (Electrotherapy) – This is an available mode on the unit in which electrotherapy is distributed intermittently.
Pulsed Mode (Ultrasound) – The output of the ultrasound is automatically interrupted during the treatment time. This limits the amount
of energy delivered to the tissues.
Ramp - Ramp is the gradual increase and decrease in current. The purpose of ramping up the current is to maximize patient comfort by
preventing the abrupt and sudden exposure to the current.
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.
Sweep - This is the modulation of therapeutic frequency commonly used to prevent accommodation. Sweeps are measured in pulses per
second (pps) and Hertz (Hz).
Treatment Time – Measured in minutes and seconds, it is the suggested time in which therapy is given.
Vector - A vector is a geometrically descriptive feature used to increase the effective therapeutic current at the crossing point of
Interferential.
Vector Position - The available vector positions are 0 to 90 degrees.
Vector Scan - Measured in percentages, vector scans are the rhythmic changes of the position of vector. The available vector scans are
Manual, Auto 40% and Auto 100%.

OVERVIEW
Intelect® Transport Combo
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 peak 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 86° F and with the line voltage variations in the range of 10% of the rated line voltage.

OPERATION
Intelect® Transport Combo
starting, Stopping, and interrupting combination therapy
Combination therapy consists of using electrotherapy and ultrasound therapy simultaneously. You may choose to use one or both channels
of electrotherapy in conjunction with ultrasound.
Combination therapy utilizes the ultrasound modality in conjuction with High Voltage Pulsed Current (HVPC), Premodulated, or
Interferential to generate a therapeutic effect. In this mode of therapy, the sound head of the ultrasound applicator becomes one half of
the electrical circuit. An electrode attached to the black (-) Lead Wire completes the circuit.
To do this, do the following:
1.
Follow all appropriate procedures listed in the section entitled "Electrotherapy
Patient Preparation" on page 38 and "Ultrasound Patient Preparation" on page 42.
2.
Connect the Lead Wires to the appropriate electrodes.
For example, for all waveforms used by Channel 1 (all waveforms except Interferential),
use the black (-) Lead Wire as the negative and the applicator as the positive.
For the Interferential waveform, you will use three lead wires and the applicator for
combination therapy: use the black (-) Lead Wire for Channel 1 as the negative
electrode, the applicator as the positive, and the other Lead Wires for channel 2 as
you would for an electrotherapy treatment.
NOTE: Do not use unnecessary force to connect the electrodes to the Lead Wires.
3.
Place the self adhesive electrodes on the sites prescribed by a qualified practitioner. Make sure you press them firmly on the patient’s skin to ensure good conductivity.
