The Qoustic Wound Therapy System is portable and can be used in many health care settings - including the bedside - by certified wound care specialists, including physicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists and podiatrists. The system reduces splash and aerosolization. It can reduce wound care costs in several ways: fast setup, no required disposables, short procedure times, effective procedures that reduce debridement frequency, efficient use of saline and fast cleanup. The system has FDA 510(k) clearance and uses established reimbursement codes for selective and non-selective surgical debridement and active wound care management.
"Of the ultrasonic wound care devices on the market, I am most impressed by the Qoustic Wound Therapy System, particularly its ease of use and controlled debridement of wounds," said Dr. Jeffrey A. Niezgoda, MD, medical director of Hyperbaric and Wound Care Associates in Milwaukee. "The system allows me to remove diseased tissue while protecting healthy tissue."
Benefits of Ultrasound for Wound Care
When electrical energy is converted to mechanical motion, sound
pressure waves are created. These ultrasound waves can have thermal and/or
physical effects in tissue. Low-frequency ultrasound has been shown to have
cellular- level physical effects, known as cavitation and microstreaming,
that can promote healing. Cavitation is the formation and oscillation of
microscopic bubbles, which expand and collapse as they resonate with the
ultrasound frequency. Acoustic microstreaming is the physica
