Ultrasound has been used as a therapeutic agent for decades. Unfortunately many treatments are ineffective because the wrong treatment parameters are used.

These include: treatment size area; treatment duration; intensity; frequency; tissue type; movement speed of the transducer; and the “stretching window”.
