Sonopulse III the best seller in Latin America!
The Sonopulse III is a therapeutic ultrasound micro-controlled device in the frequencies of 1 MHz and 3 MHz, designed to be used for physiotherapy and esthetics treatments. It's 7cm² ERA makes it possible to select the frequency according to the protocol to be done. The ultrasound emission mode can be adjusted to continuous or pulsed. The pulsed mode has pulse repetition frequencies of 100 Hz, 48 Hz or 16 Hz, with pulse ratio of 1/2 (50%) or 1/5 (20%).
In the interior of the Sonopulse III's transductor there is a thermal sensor that verifies and mantain the working temperature of the piezoelectric crystal, and consequently, the transductor's aluminium face. This avoids the patient to feel the excessive unpleasant heat. This sensor is set in a way that the aluminium's temperature never exceeds 41°C.
During the treatment, the temperature can increase to more than 41°C and this will make the equipment "freeze". Then the time that was programmed at the timer shut down and ceases the ultrasound emission. The professional must continue to use the transductor because within seconds the temperature will be back to normal. The equipment will "defrost" automatically the time, going back to the original programming.
Ultrasound is delivered to the body using an efficient couplant provides deep heating effects to body tissues. Ultrasound delivered at a frequency of 1 MHz penetrates to a depth of approximately 5 centimeters while ultrasound at a frequency of 3 MHz penetrates tissue to a depth of approximately 1–2 cm.
Ultrasound Therapeutical Effects
It increases the membrane's permeability, enhancing the transference of fluids and nutrients to the tissues and cells.
Vibrations stimulate the tissue to increase the reactions and the local chemical's processes.
Micro-massage effects that increase the cellular metabolism, blood flow and the oxygen supply.
Along with the micro-massage occurs a local temperature increase, resulting from the kinetics conversion in heat by the tissues.
Examine the patient's skin to see if there is any wound and clean the treatment area, rubbing the skin with medicinal alcohol.
Before applying the ultrasound, clean the area with soap and water to remove the oil and possible skin's fragments, reducing the ultrasound's difficult to go through the skin. Wash and dry well the area before applying the ultrasound.
Clean the applicator before each therapy session with warm water and soap.
Apply conductor gel over the patient's treatment area.
Move the transductor constantly during the therapy session in circular moves.
Examine the skin again after finishing the treatment.
Associations with other equipment
Sonopulse III can be associated to the Neurodyn II to enhance the results. The TENS current associated with the 1MHz ultrasound frequency will promote more analgesia. If the professional associate the Russian Current to the 3Mhz frequency, the measure reduction and the body modeling will be seen faster.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Yes, it’s recommended to be calibrated every 6 months or every time the nozzle falls to the ground, present cracks, or any kind of noise. Only after calibrating an effective therapy can be done with trustable doses
The ideal gel to be used with any kind of ultrasound must not have bubbles. It must have clear appearance and be transparent, odorless and without additives (such as alcohol, scents and others). The ideal amount of gel is the one that allows the head of the equipment to slide freely, without sticking to the patient’s skin.
Because the ultrasound’s beam is not uniform, the ultrasound’s head should not be still in the same place for a long time. It also can’t be moved very fast, because there would be no sufficient time for the tissue to enter in resonance. The best way to use it is to make a round-dislocated movement at a 1 to 2cm/second speed.
The ultrasound 1MHz is used in deeper structures (muscles, tendons, bursae), because it is poorly absorbed by the superficial structures and by the adipose tissue. The ultrasound 3MHz on the other hand, should be used in superficial structures, because the energy is absorbed in the tissues that are located between 1 and 2 cm under the skin.
It’s not recommended because after the gel is used in one place, bubbles normally appear, making the gel cloudy. That would indicate a bad conduction.
Many aspects may cause this influence: cloudy low-conduction gel, insufficient quantity of gel, fast movements or spinning too many times at the same place and mainly the lack of connection to the head of the equipment..
To clean the cabinet and its parts, use only dry, soft clean fabric. Do not use any volatile substances (such as benzene, alcohol, diluent and solvents in general) to clean the cabinet, because they may damage the top coat. After using the ultrasound’s transducer, clean it with running water. If necessary, to disinfect it, use just cotton dampened with chlorhexidine digluconate 0,2 (aqueous solution).
The equipment comes with all the necessary accessories for the use of all the currents available in the Sonopulse III.
Cavitation is the radiation of ultrasound to liquids, generating very small bubbles. Under the ultrasonic field’s action, these bubbles get bigger and smaller (stable cavitation) or they may collapse (unstable cavitation). Cavitation is a common phenomenon produced by therapeutic ultrasounds.
Put some water drops in the aluminon part of the transducer, increase the intensity and verify the water’s nebulization’s effect. The nebulization indicates that your equipment is emitting ultrasound and it presents itself differently from one equipment to another. The ultrasound’s conduction mode is released very precariously at this moment. This will cause a quick aluminon temperature elevation to more than 40ºC. Therefore, do not exaggerate doing the test or else it may damage the piezoelectric crystal inside the transducer.
Yes, it is. We suggest following the instructions from the electrode’s manufacturer chosen by the user.
