Latest Invention in Medicine: Mini Ultrasound for Pain Relief


The miniature ultrasound device can soon be available to everyone suffering from arthritis or other pain.

The novel device was created by George K. Lewis, the Cornell biomedical engineering graduate student, and is claimed to be the world's smallest ultrasound device. The device sends low-intensity ultrasound to the skin, which relives pain and may also be used to deliver various drugs.

The mini ultrasound goes on the first clinical trial and may soon hit the markets.

My mother is in constant pain after her back surgery. She feels the pain in her leg. She began taking Celebrex and for some reason the pain in her leg went up to her back! The doctors can't seem to help her and she lives with pain daily. This device would be a godsend! How much would it sell for and where would it be available?
