EQultrasound Pro Therapy low frequency / longwave equine ultrasound induces the following effects within biological tissues:
– intense acoustic effects (non-thermal effects)
– diathermy / deep heat (thermal effects)
– mechanical vibration (mechanical effects)
The intense acoustic effects produced by EQ Pro Therapy are absolutely painless also for calcific pathologies, where shockwaves are usually employed. With specific transducers EQ Pro Therapy generates intense acoustic effects, which stimulate the horse body auto-repair processes leading to a faster recovery. Horses can tolerate EQ Pro treatments without the need of sedation. Please note EQ Pro Therapy can be used as a substitution to shockwaves, but works greatly also as an adjunct device to shockwave therapy. In fact utilizing the EQ Pro in between shockwave treatments maximizes the effects of shockwave therapy for a faster recovery.
Diathermy / deep heat is generated only by EQ Pro Therapy continuous emission transducers (Red and Yellow) and causes a deep thermal effect with a minimal increase of skin surface temperature. Deep heat contributes to increase cellular metabolic activity and enzymatic activity, since it produces vasodilation and raises the local demand for oxygen and nutrients. Consequently deep heat also accelerates the removal of waste substances generated by the injury (histamine, bradykinin and prostaglandins). Diathermy / deep heat allows for a faster recovery of the treated areas.
A strong mechanical vibration is generated by EQ Pro Therapy pulsed emission transducers (Blue, Green, Grey and White). The resulting mechanical non-thermal effects increase cellular metabolic activity and blood micro-circulation, resulting in increased oxygenation and enzymatic activity.
Compared to traditional high frequency ultrasound therapy (1/3 MHz), EQultrasound Pro Therapy produces a more effective and deeper action for a faster recovery in the treatment of equine muscles, tendons and joint structures. In fact EQ Pro longwave ultrasound therapy (38 kHz +/-2 ) allows much deeper penetration and strong acoustic effects (stable cavitation, acoustic streaming and microstreaming).
Please note that since EQultrasound is a powerful device, FDA requires it to be sold to licensed veterinarians or under veterinary prescription.
The EQ Pro Therapy generator transforms electrical energy into acoustic pressure waves and controls low frequency piezoelectric hand probes. The internal microprocessor continuously adjusts the generated oscillatory movements to guarantee safety and performance.
Through the use of six different transducers, EQultrasound Pro Therapy is able to modulate a wide range of emissions, so that with the same device several different muscular, joint, tendinous and bone conditions can be treated.
CAUTION: Federal Law restricts this device to sale by
or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
