Device for Dual Ultrasound and Dry Needling Trigger Points Treatment

Sensors (Basel). 2023 Jan 4;23(2):580. doi: 10.3390/s23020580.


Ultrasound is a well-known tool to produce thermal and non-thermal effects on cells and tissues. These effects require an appropriate application of ultrasound in terms of localization and acoustic energy delivered. This article describes a new device that combines ultrasound and dry needling treatments. The non-thermal effects of ultrasound should locally amplify the needle’s effects. The ultrasound transducer can mechanically rotate in 3D space to align itself in the direction of the needle. The transducer electronically focuses the acoustic pressure automatically on the needle tip and its surroundings. A computer, using graphical interface software, controls the angulation of the array and the focus position.
