sam® Sport

  • Traditional clinical power signal strength (Watts) delivered in treatment
 
  • Low Power (Milliwatts) resulting in longer time application (hours) for effectiveness
  • Short treatment times in 5/10/15 minute sessions
 
  • 4-8 hours per treatment session for device effectiveness*
  • Two selections of power output ratings (high, low)
 
  • No choice in selecting output, 1 low voltage setting
  • Patented vibratory massage feedback to indicate when device is coupled and delivering therapy treatment
 
  • No feedback to patients on coupling of therapeutic ultrasound waves. No assurance of coupling while worn.
  • JAS Pulse requires no special skin surface preparation for usage
 
  • sam Sport patch uses adhesive to adhere to skin. Possible allergic reaction to adhesive. Must prep skin surface with hair removal and other to insure adhesion. Sweating and movement can cause patch displacement.
  • Thermal feedback sensor uncouples ultrasound to prevent excessive heat on skin
 
  • Has potential to burn skin surface
  • Unrestricted size of treatment area, can treat smaller surface because of size of ultrasound head
 
  • Treatment area limited to size of patch
  • Tracks actual usage
