MIST Therapy Product
The MIST Therapy® System includes several components:
- Ultrasound Generator – the generator produces the energy needed to create the sound waves that are delivered to the wound bed from the transducer tip.
- Ultrasound transducer – the transducer is the “wand” attached to the system that is held near the wound to the deliver the gentle sound waves without direct contact. The metal tip of the transducer vibrates over 40,000 times a second to create the gentle, low-frequency sound waves.
- Applicator and Saline – the applicator is attached over the transducer and dispenses the saline which is the conduit for delivering the sound waves to the wound bed. The applicator and saline are “single use only” and should be discarded after the treatment session is completed to reduce risk of contamination and infection.
- NEW – MIST 360o Applicator
MIST 360o provides a new applicator design with increased flexibility to access even the most difficult to reach wounds while allowing larger wounds to be treated more easily. The MIST 360o design replaces the saline bottle and holder of the applicator with tubing that is attached to a 0.9 normal saline bag. The features of MIST 360o include;
Improve access to difficult to treat locations
Enhance wound visualizarion during treatment
Minimize repositioning of your patients
Treat larger wounds without stopping to refill saline
Lighter transducer designed to minimize user fatigue
