ULTRASOUND: PRECAUTIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS-- Although ultrasound offers a valuable therapeutic contribution, it also can be dangerous if used improperly. For purchase by a non-physician, WE REQUIRE A VALID DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION PRIOR TO PROCESSING YOUR ORDER. This may be faxed to 1-800-787-4378. Even with a doctor's prescription, it is imperative that you have a clear understanding of the proper use of ultrasound. Request specific instructions from your health care provider.
Do not use in case of the following or over described areas:
Undiagnosed pain of any type, cancer, active tuberculosis, over an area of infection, over an area of decreased circulation, during pregnancy, over central nervous system tissue like brain or spinal cord, over joint cement from surgery, with pacemakers, over plastic or metal implants, with thrombophlebitis, in cases of bleeding, in persons taking coumadin or other blood thinning medications, over eyes, reproductive organs or heart. Also do not use in cases of acute inflammation.
Excluding the above, Ultrasound may be used over bones or joints as long as it is in the pulsed mode, at low intensity and as long as the ultrasound head is constantly moving.
DANGER: Keeping the ultrasound head stationary during use may burn the covering of bones and damage internal organs.
WARRANTY: This portable Ultrasound unit (excluding gel and cords) are warranteed for ONE-YEAR for defects in materials and workmanship. This applies to the original purchaser only and does not cover abuse, accidents or damage from improper use.
RETURNS: Because ultrasound is a therapy that is often used for short duration with lots of success and improvement in one's condition, we are unable to accept returns on this product unless the unit is defective. Otherwise, it is likely that one could purchase the unit, derive the benefit within a short duration and return the unit to us.
