EQultrasound is a revolutionary device for the treatment of soft tissue and musculoskeletal conditions in horses, both in the acute or chronic stages.

EQultrasound can be successfully employed in equine sports medicine, lameness treatment, pre-competition warm up and prevention of injuries. It can be used as an adjunct treatment to PRP and stem cell therapy injections, as a pre or post-surgery treatment, but also for sonophoresis (transdermal drug delivery) and to rapidly close open wounds. EQultrasound can be a substitute or adjunct treatment to shockwaves.

Red hand probes feature continuous ultrasound emission and should be employed when heating of deep equine structures is desired. EQultrasound does not appreciably heat the horse skin but can significantly heat deeper tissues such as tendon, muscle, nerve, and bone. Continuous emission modality is usually employed for conditions in the chronic phase or when heat is a desirable element (for example to increase soft tissue extensibility before active or passive stretching activities).

Silver hand probes feature pulsed ultrasound emission. In the pulsed emission modality the ultrasound wavetrain is interrupted at specific intervals (duty cycle). Pauses in the wavetrain occur to promote intense mechanical effects and so that heat can be dissipated by circulation. Pulsed emission modality is preferred to treat pathologies in the acute phase, when heat is an undesirable factor.
The mechanical non-thermal effects of EQultrasound include: stable cavitation, acoustical streaming and microstreaming.

EQultrasound red hand probes (continuous emission) can be used to treat joint mobility limitations, which often are the consequence of prolonged immobilization, bursitis, tendonitis, muscle spasms, scar tissue or adhesions.

When associated with exercising EQultrasound can significantly increase the joint range of motion. In fact by rising the temperature of deep muscle and tendon structures before or while performing stretching exercises, EQultrasound can promote tissue elongation and reduce the risk of fiber damage and tissue injuries.

Continuous ultrasound emission increases collagen elasticity and it is very easily absorbed by structures high in collagen fiber, like joint capsules.

Joint structures are very often responsible for range of motion limitations and treating them with our therapeutic ultrasound makes it much easier to stretch them during exercise.

Furthermore, heating deep tissues while performing stretching exercises will increase the level of comfort for the horse.

The use of EQultrasound in conjunction with stretching exercises is ideal for the rehabilitation of the joint range of motion, where joint movement has been inhibited by certain equine pathologies.

Ultrasound waves are generated by applying an alternate current to a piezoelectric ceramic disc made of synthetic plumbium zirconium titanate (PZT), which is located inside the hand probe. This piezoelectric ceramic disc contracts and expands at the same frequency at which current changes polarity.

Consequently the ultrasound field generated by the piezoelectric ceramic disc makes the molecules in the sound field vibrate and oscillate.

Therapeutic ultrasound produces positive results in the treatment of several equine soft tissue and musculoskeletal conditions. For example ultrasound promotes the repair of deep tissue lesions, such as tendon injuries and ligament lesions. Experimental evidence indicates that ultrasound can increase the rate of protein synthesis by fibroblasts. The movement of ions such as calcium effects cellular activity, increasing the rate of phagocytosis and repair.
