Portable Ultrasound Units

If you're in the market for portable ultrasound units to deliver at home ultrasound therapy, OTC Wholesale can help. At home ultrasound units deliver deep heat to body tissues and provide relief from medical conditions like pain, muscle spasms and joint contractures. These portable ultrasound units work essentially by generating sound waves, which cause vibration in the soft tissue, which, in turn, increases temperature and induces vasodilation. And increased vasodilation means increased blood flow to the treated area. Our line of at home ultrasound units includes muscle stimulators and TENS units, as well as electrodes and accessories, like transmission gel and conductive gel. These accessories help improve the patient experience overall and prolong the life of portable ultrasound units. Look for brands like Aquasonic, BodyMed, Current Solutions, Roscoe Medical and Sombra from OTC Wholesale at unbeatable prices when shopping for at home ultrasound units. We also carry superior quality Muscle Stimulators, TENS Units, TENS Electrodes, and other TENS Unit Accessories at the lowest prices on the net.

      Answers to your Portable Ultrasound Questions

      What is a Portable Ultrasound?

      At home Ultrasound Units generate deep heat through a piezoelectric crystal sound heads. Unlike electrical modalities, ultrasound is unique in that the longitudinal waveform associated with sound is not electromagnetic in nature. The piezoelectric crystal converts electrical energy into a strong vibratory sound wave or ultrasound, a sound beyond the normal range of our hearing. Sound waves cause vibration in soft tissue cells, increasing temperature and inducing vasodilation.

      How does a Portable Ultrasound Unit help pain?

      Portable Ultrasounds give you advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves that are transferred to a specific body area viw a sound-headed probe. The Pulsed Sound Waves travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation, which helps increase blood flow to the treated area.

      Theraputic Ultrasound is found to help reduce muscle spasms and joint contractures and is one of the most frequently used therapies by physicians and physical therapists.

      What is Conductive Ultrasound Gel?

      Because air is a very poor sound conductor ultrasound gels are used to conduct the wave energy to the skin. It is water soluable and will not irritate skin or damage the ultrasound applicator.

      How long is the Treatment Time?

      Treatment duration is determined by the medical practitioner and may range from 2-5 minutes depending on the conditions treated and anatomic target site.

      How does Ultrasound Treatment Feel?

      The sound waves travel deep into tissue and create gentle heat. In turn, the heat induces vasodilation: drawing blood into the target tissues. Most patients will feel nothing at all during treatment, while some patients may feel a very slight warmth.

      Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

      TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.

      Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

      EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased

      Galvanic Stimulators

      Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.


      IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.


      Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.


      Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.


      Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.

      Micro Current

      Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
