The TGS US-7e Ultrasonic Unit is designed for use on horses or other larger animals. The ultrasound output vibrates the surface of the crystal at 800,000 times per second. This vibration is far above hearing but it is powerful enough to penetrate 5cm into the tissue. As this powerful output is beyond what air can transfer there must be a liquid between the crystal face and the skin of the animal. Ultrasonic gel give the beast conduction. Other creams or oils may work but may cause the crystal to overheat, or in the case of oils damage may occur to the cables causing them to become brittle. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE CRYSTAL FACE BE KEPT IN CONTACT WITH THE SKIN AT ALL TIMES WHEN THE OUTPUT IS ON. If the crystal is out of contact for more than 30 seconds the energy that should be passing into the animal will be absorbed by the crystal and cause irreversible damage. Medical machines have an automatic switch off but this has proved impractical with animal hair. Treated with a little care the TGS crystal head and handle will give many years of reliable service.

How does it work?
Ultrasound has been used for over 60 years to help repair soft tissue injuries on both humans and animals.
It works in 3 ways - thermal, mechanical and chemical. All this occurs at a cellular level and no external changes may be noticed during the treatment. The ultrasound is like a deep micro massage. The tissue may feel slightly warm after the treatment bur must never feel hot. If the tissue or the crystal feel hot it may be due to excessive power, often loosing contact with the tissue, unsuitable coupling medium or gel, or the crystal may have been damaged.

As a result of competitive performance, racing animals often suffer from muscle and tendon injuries. Also from inflammation of the joints. The healing period may be reduced by the use of ultrasound and allows the trainer to maintain the animal's fitness.
Ultrasound is compatible with Magnetic Field. Photo Therapy and Muscle Contractors in the treatment of many injuries.
