NEW YORK, NY, October 25, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Osang Healthcare Co., Ltd., a company specialized 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 launched on Indiegogo, the crowdfunding platform and hit 1,000% of the company's goal in a day.
The portable ultrasound massager by Osang Healthcare, called PUM, 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 increased use of smartphones that lead to bad postures, more and more people are increasingly experiencing neck pain, such as text neck syndrome that causes stiffness and pain in the neck muscles. It seems like PUM may be effective solution for the people with such issues.
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. Since this syndrome can develop into a neck disc if left untreated, it is necessary to effectively relax the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) and relieve symptoms through stimulation of physical therapy on the autonomic nerve, which causes 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 be used even by users who may be sensitive as the device is non-stimulating to the human body.
In addition, PUM can be used in quiet places such as library or office as it does not generate noise when used. You can also perform other tasks during the massage as it's a hands-free device that is wireless and wearable, making it easy to use anytime and anywhere.
Treat your with PUM, the effective solution for neck pain, PUM is available on Indiegogo from 18th October to 30th November 2022 at a discounted price. Go to the official Indiegogo website for more information!
