SAN ANTONIO, TZ – 28 Feb, 2017 – Patients can heal from chronic conditions and recover from pain faster – without the need for meds – through a simple, unique adjunct therapy: portable and wearable ultrasound.
sam® Sport, sustained acoustic medicine, will participate as a first-time exhibitor at the American Physical Therapy Association’s 2017 Combined Sections Meeting Feb. 15-18.
Use it for warming up. Use it for recovery. It’s a wearable, FDA-cleared, active medical device – that uses proprietary, low-intensity, long-duration ultrasound – to stimulate healing and alleviate pain for chronic musculoskeletal conditions. sam® Sport permeates soft body tissue with sound waves that reach over 5 centimeters in depth – in an area approximately the size of a baseball.
Common problems and sports injuries treated with sam® Sport include Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, plantar fasciitis, hamstring strain, groin pull or strain, back pain/spasms, chronic lateral/medial epicondylitis (elbow), shoulder tendinitis, and medial collateral ligament sprain or tear.
sam® Sport has been approved by insurance carriers for worker’s comp and no-fault injury patients.
Adhere sam® Sport to the body onto a specific place, as it uses miniaturization technology to provide ultrasonic waves that penetrate into tissue to increase blood circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery, and it removes waste products, such as lactic acid, from the site of a musculoskeletal injury, said George Lewis, the president of ZetrOZ Systems, LLC, makers of sam Sport.
“sam® Sport accelerates healing and to reduce pain for musculoskeletal injuries, all without the need for prescription pain pharmaceuticals,” said Lewis.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared this technology in 2013, and it is available by prescription in the U.S. and over the counter in Europe, Canada and Asia.
While the use of traditional therapeutic ultrasound is typically applied in short, high intensity bursts from large systems, current research indicates that low intensity, and long-duration ultrasound provides a better and sustainable solution.
In fact, this is the first full season that NFL teams have used sam® Sport, as it now approved by the league’s insurance carriers. Both teams in Super Bowl 51 used sam® Sport all season, as well all teams in the conference championships and the playoffs. Using sam® Sport: 16 NFL teams, 10 NHL teams, 18 NBA teams, 15 professional baseball teams, USA Cycling, U.S. Figure Skating and Rugby Canada use sam® Sport.
