Ultrasound Wound Healing

In hopes of helping patients suffering from extremely slow-healing injuries, called chronic wounds, researchers from Drexel’s School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems and College of Medicine are taking a new approach to using ultrasound as a healing tool. By dialing down the energy level on therapeutic ultrasound, similar to that used to treat athletes’ muscle and ligament injuries, the team is finding a solution that could give the body’s natural healing process a boost and could save patients a great deal of time, money and suffering.
