The Vectorsonic is a combination interferential ultrasound unit, offering three modes of operation: Interferential, Ultrasound or Combination mode.
The ultrasound module offers various pulsed and continuous 1 & 3 MHz outputs. Each module can be used independently of each other, allowing two patient treatments at one time, or both in combination.
When being used in combination, the 1 MHz ultrasound transducer becomes the active electrode.
Contact Control Function:
This function allows the user to detect poor acoustic coupling between the ultrasonic treatment applicator and patient. At detection of contact loss the indicator or applicator illuminates red and after 1 second the treatment timer is halted.
The treatment time display also flashes and the ultrasonic output power is reduced. On contact detection the treatment is restored to the selected value.
Contact Display Function:
This function displays the degree of contact being made with the patient by the treatment applicator. Loss of contact, which
activates the contact control feature, occurs at approximately 25% of full scale.
