NEW YORK, NY, October 18, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Osang Healthcare Co., Ltd., a company specializing in in-vitro diagnostics, has developed a 1MHz ultrasound used for physical therapy as a portable device so individuals can easily use the device with convenience. The product will soon be launched through the crowdfunding platform, Indiegogo.
PUM (portable ultrasound massager) by Osang Healthcare, is effective in relieving pain and relaxing muscles in topical areas such as neck, shoulder, and knee through 1MHz ultrasound and EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation), which vibrates a million times per second.
Due to increased use of smartphones that lead to bad postures, more people are increasingly experiencing neck pain, such as text neck syndrome, that causes stiffness and pain in the neck muscles. PUM may be an effective solution for those with these types of symptoms.
Text neck syndrome refers to the neck excessively pulled forward as a default posture of the body, when the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) at the front of the neck tightens and deforms due to prolonged bad posture. If this syndrome is left untreated, it can develop into a neck disc so it is necessary to relieve symptoms by effectively relaxing the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) and through stimulation of physical therapy on the autonomic nerve which causes the neck pain.
Dr. Min-cheol Oh, the director of Osang Neurosurgery who participated in the product development commented, "The key technology applied to PUM is 1MHz ultrasound. It relaxes the muscles located under the skin and provides stimulation to the autonomic nerve through physical therapy. 1MHz ultrasound vibrates a million times per second, and deeply penetrates to a depth of 2 to 4cm from the skin to raise the temperature of the tissue. This then increases the blood flow, metabolism, as well as the pain threshold, resulting in positive physiological response such as pain relief and muscle relaxation."
PUM is made with an ergonomic design that wraps around the neck and directly delivers 1MHz ultrasound to the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) in order to effectively provide deep heat. Due to the nature of ultrasound, PUM is a product that can even be used by users who are more sensitive to pain as the device is non-stimulating to the human body.
Additionally, PUM is wireless and wearable. Since it is hands-free, you can also perform other tasks during the massage. The device can even be used in quiet places such as a library or an office as it does not generate noise when used, making it easy to use anytime and anywhere.
Treat yourself with PUM, the effective solution for neck pain, when it becomes available on Indiegogo in October at a discounted price. Please visit the official Indiegogo website for more information!
