Sustained Acoustic Medicine (sam®) is a low intensity, long duration, daily ultrasound treatment that can reduce the need for pain medication and surgery.
Using mechanobiological technology, sam® increases blood vessel diameters to improve blood flow. This increases oxygenated hemoglobin at the site and removes cytokine enzymes and cellular waste. The result is more rapid healing and reduced pain.
The sam® device was developed out of research funded by the National Institute of Health and US Department of Defense to accelerate soft tissue healing and reduce the use of pharmaceuticals.
sam® is clinically validated in over 30 studies and has treated more than 300,000 patients successfully. Safe, Effective and Proven.
Major Accolades Include:
40+ Global Patents, Global Medical Innovation Award, CIMIT Prize for Primary Healthcare and National Institutes of Health Honoree.
sam® is a cost effective, non-invasive, drug-free, modality used for healing soft tissue injuries and treating chronic pain.
sam® is a wearable medical device that delivers a low intensity, long duration ultrasound treatment at 1.3W (.65W/applicator) of energy to create vigorous diathermy in soft tissue as deep as 5 cm below the skin’s surface.
Similar to ultrasound therapy applied in clinical offices, sam’s proven ability to generate deep heat, increase local circulation, and activate cellular pathways helps your body heal faster and stronger after an injury.
Dosing for sam® treatment is typically applied daily (1-4 hrs.) and may be prescribed for 6-8 weeks, depending on the injury.
Recovery made easy with scientific innovation.
Patient Success with sam®
sam® 2.0 is the only FDA-cleared long duration ultrasound device for prescription home-use to reduce pain, increase local circulation, and reduce joint stiffness/contracture. sam® treatment is clinically proven to deliver deep vigorous diathermy and cellular activation to stimulate the remodeling response of damaged tissues.
Soft Tissue Healing with sam®
sam® is a clinically proven mechanobiologic delivered by a wearable non-invasive ultrasound device. Living your life pain-free is possible without drugs or invasive surgery. Ask your doctor if sam® is right for you. Heal soft tissue injuries, get relief from arthritis, or repair tendons naturally with low intensity, long duration ultrasound.
Reduced Opioids with sam®
sam® is a new treatment option for chronic joint pain and improved post-operative recovery. FDA-cleared for home-use in 2020, sam® delivers a safe, daily 4-hour dose of approximately 20,000 joules of ultrasound and is a proven, effective alternative to opioids in clinical studies.
