A specific increase in temperature is necessary to achieve a temperature-mediated therapeutic impact by ultrasound in rehabilitation. In order to obtain a physical basis for a definite temperature rise at a certain depths in the human body a human cadaver study in situ was conducted. A set of 16 experiments was carried out with an ultrasound frequency of 1 and 3 MHz. For each frequency the pulsed and continuous mode of energy delivery were compared at a variable intensity of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2… CONTINUE READING
