ManaMed said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the ManaSport ultrasound therapy Class II device. The ManaSport device is a new ultrasound therapy device that provides pain relief and treatment for soft-tissue injuries. The new device is set to offer support to those suffering from ongoing issues.
Portable and rechargeable, the device can now be prescribed by medical professionals and is intended for supervised use. It provides non-invasive pulsed ultrasound therapy at localized sites through ultrasound gel, with no discomfort to the patient. A complete therapy session takes 20 minutes, and the product comes complete with ultrasound gel, a strap to hold the applicator in place, and a battery charger.
This compact medical device has a display with simple instructions for use. A built-in calendar helps users stay on top of treatments, while special safety features can lock the device to avoid unintended operation. Physicians and physiotherapists can manually move the applicator throughout the affected area, or use the included strap for a static, hands-free treatment.
