Abstract

See full text

Ultrasound bandages (10) and ultrasound transducer array bandages are provided herein to accelerate the healing of wounds by positioning the ultrasound bandages (10) and ultrasound transducer array bandages adjacent to a wound and generating ultrasonic pulses. The ultrasound bandages (10) generally include (a) a backing layer (12), (b) an adhesive layer (14) applied to, and substantially coextensive with the backing layer (12), and (c) a transducer material (16) disposed on at least a portion of the adhesive layer (14). The ultrasound transducer array bandages generally include (a) a backing layer (13), (b) an adhesive layer applied to, and substantially coextensive with, the backing layer, and (c) an array comprising a plurality of transducer materials arranged in adjacent relation to define spaces therebetween, the array being disposed on at least a portion of the adhesive layer. The resulting ultrasound bandages (10) and ultrasound transducer array bandages allows for medical therapeutic applications as promoting the healing of wounds such as abrasions, lacerations, incisions and ulcers at any section or multiple sections of the human anatomy with the ultrasound bandages (10) and ultrasound transducer array bandages being conveniently discarded after each application and a new bandage then being applied for the next application.
