From the same inventor’s of the UltrOz that we love so much is the SAM. Sustained Acoustic Medicine—or sam®—is long-duration, continuous ultrasound therapy that’s completely drug-free and FDA-cleared. Sam is both mobile and wearable for pain relief and recovery.
With sam®, our goal is to help you recapture your active lifestyle—whether it’s running a half marathon, playing with your grandchildren, taking a yoga class, or reducing pain during your work day.
In the last 15 years, researchers have demonstrated the proven success of ultrasound therapy when applied daily. Unfortunately, the inaccessibility of therapeutic ultrasound at the provider’s office meant that only professional athletes had consistent access to the benefit of Sustained Acoustic Medicine. Now sam® makes the secret of professional athletes available to you.
sam® is the first and only FDA-cleared device for multi-hour, continuous ultrasound therapy. Using powerful miniaturization technology, it delivers treatment more efficiently, compactly, and economically than ever before. sam® is an essential part of any pre-hab and rehab regimen.
sam® works by providing continuous mechanical energy directly into the tissue to up-regulate cellular activity, accelerate nutrient transport, and increase collagen lay down. The deep-penetrating ultrasonic energy:
- Reduces inflammatory pain in tendons, muscles, and joints
- Relieves muscle spasms
- Improves joint and muscle flexibility and mobility
- Increases local circulation
Drug-free sam® is battery-powered, rechargeable, and comfortable to wear—even on moving joints. It can be worn for up to 4 hours, fully saturating sore muscles, tendons, and ligaments with gentle, restorative ultrasound energy.
Whether you’re an injured athlete, weekend warrior, or chronic pain sufferer, sam® can help you maintain your active lifestyle.
What is Long-Duration Ultrasound?
Physical therapists, trainers, and physicians have relied on long-duration ultrasound therapy for many years. It is proven to promote soft tissue recovery while also relieving muscle, tendon, and ligament pain.9 Long-duration therapeutic ultrasound provides multiple benefits:
- Generates deep heating in tissues, helping to soothe inflammation and relieve pain
- Increases circulation and flexibility by increasing cellular movement within treated tissue
- Aids in the removal of cellular waste products, due to increased cellular movement
- Promotes blood vessel vasodilation (expansion)
- Reduces inflammation
- Triggers cellular activities that promote tissue recovery
- Decreases pain through a combination of reduced inflammation and enhanced tissue recovery
How is sam® different?
sam® incorporates the benefits of existing long-duration ultrasound therapy with the latest innovation in mobile ultrasound delivery technology. It is the first 4-hour mobile, wearable ultrasound pain therapy system, providing for sustained, continuous application of therapeutic ultrasound. Sore muscles, tendons, and ligaments can be fully saturated with gentle, restorative ultrasound energy.
sam® is your partner in achieving faster, stronger recovery of soft tissue injury
sam® is the first and only FDA-cleared device for multi-hour, continuous ultrasound therapy.
sam® is an effective, convenient, economic, and drug-free solution that promotes and accelerates soft tissue recovery, while also reducing pain.
For patients with musculoskeletal injury who face the constraints of active work, social, family, and training schedules, therapy that reduces both recovery time and pain is crucial. sam® offers doctors, physical therapists, and trainers a novel treatment modality that can do just that—and can work in conjunction with other elements of an overall therapeutic regimen.
sam® is intended to apply ultrasonic energy to generate deep heat within body tissues for the treatment of selected medical conditions such as the relief of pain, the relief of muscle spasms, the treatment of joint contractures, and the local increase of circulation.
sam® is a prescription use device. sam® should only be administered and monitored by a licensed healthcare practitioner.
sam® is easy to use
sam® is mobile and wearable for use when needed. It can be worn comfortably for up to 4 hours for convenient, continuous therapy. Users often report a sensation of soothing warmth as the ultrasound energy begins to work.
- If the treatment is painful or too hot at any point during the treatment, turn sam® off and remove the device from the skin.
- ALWAYS administer treatment using a new sam® Ultrasound Coupling Bandage. Do not administer treatment if the applicator is not connected to a sam® Ultrasound Coupling Bandage.
- DO NOT apply the sam® Applicator with alternative coupling media as a replacement for the sam® Ultrasound Coupling Bandage.
- DO NOT use if the ultrasound coupling media in the Ultrasound Coupling Bandage is dried out.
- DO NOT apply directly over a bone that is near the skin surface.
