ULTRASOUND / ECG / IPL / RF gels

Our ultrasound, sterile, ECG and IPL gels were developed for those, who put a great emphasis on using reliable, stable quality, ergonomically and innovatively packed products. We have the capacity to pruduce 18 tons of controlled quality gels daily in our Hungary based factory, which all comply to even the most strict system requirements. Many of our products are available in different packaging to meet your expectations, from 260 gr to 5000 gr. Our packaging materials are partly self-produced, using the latest injection and extruder technologies.

Ultrasound gels

All professional ultrasound scanners will use ultrasound gels during scanning. The primary purpose of this acoustic couplant, developed by Ultragel, is to allow the ultrasound waves to pass into the body without reflecting off intervening air. To further optimize their images, many scanners recommend shaving the area underneath. This enables even better contact between the probe and the skin, as even a light covering of hair will trap air.

So why is air problematic?

Air is the nemesis of ultrasound, based on fundamental physical principles of sound waves. Large reflections occur wherever there is an abrupt change in acoustic impedance, causing boundaries between tissues to appear on screens. Two of the largest changes in acoustic impedance occur when ultrasound encounters air or bone. This is why reflections from bowel or fetal skeletal bone show up as bright white, sometimes creating acoustic shadows behind them.

The brighter the object on the monitor, the greater the reflection, indicating a significant difference between the acoustic impedance of the sound waves and the object being imaged. Conversely, fewer reflections are received when it’s darker, suggesting less difference in impedance.

When ultrasound waves encounter air between the transducer and the body or animal, most of the ultrasound energy is reflected back. This is evident when powering up the machine for the first time, with the screen showing bright white reflections. Acoustic impedance is determined by a medium’s density and stiffness, and mismatches in these properties lead to significant echoes.

Now that we understand the importance of an acoustic couplant, it’s crucial to consider what’s being used. Ultragel is specifically formulated to match the acoustic impedance of transducer surfaces and soft tissue, minimizing absorption or reflection of energy.

For the safety of your patient and the quality of your images, it’s essential to use Ultragel ultrasound gel, ensuring optimal performance from your machine.

The Aqualaser IPL & Laser gel developed by Ultragel is of outstanding quality and is designed for long-lasting treatments and tests.

– It is skin-friendly and contains no irritants.
– Colourless and bubble-free for perfect conductivity.
– It is soft and silky to the touch, non-sticky, does not run off the surface, ideal viscosity.
– Used as a contact gel in IPL treatment for permanent hair removal. Aqualaser gel for laser hair removal is suitable for professional and private use.
– Bubble-free – Bubble-free acoustically precise ensures that the light pulses from the IPL device penetrate easily and are optimally distributed for more reliable results.
– Skin-friendly properties: the skin is not heavily stressed during treatment. The gel is free of formaldehyde, perfume and dye additives. PH value: 5.8 – 6.4 pH, easy to use for almost all skin types.

Gel for radiofrequency treatments

It is particularly recommended for aesthetic treatments because of its high reabsorption and dense consistency, which contribute greatly to effective treatment.

Its unique consistency helps the electrodes to glide easily even on dry skin, making the practitioner’s task easier and optimising results.

When used as a lubricant, it enhances the comfort and effectiveness of intimate treatments (e.g. intimate probes) and as an intimate moisturiser, it helps restore the natural firmness and elasticity of the mucosa.

It has been specifically developed to promote capacitive and resistive treatment of sensitive skin and sensitive areas of the body.

TECARTHERAPY Capenergy

The use of heat as a treatment for various conditions has been known for many years: it provides relief from chronic, traumatic and inflammatory conditions, increases blood flow by improving cellular nutrition and oxygenation, and speeds up the elimination of toxins; improves the elasticity of connective tissue, reduces joint stiffness, muscle pain and spasm, and promotes the absorption of haematomas and oedemas.

Use of tecarterapy:

The application of an electric field with the appropriate power, frequency and waveform characteristics to energise tissues, thus restoring chemical/electrical balance… This is the theory that justifies its use in physiotherapy. Each cell is involved in the regenerative function of tissue through morphological and chemical-electrical interactions.

The thermal action on an inflamed or damaged area frees up space before the mechanical action, allowing a longer treatment duration and deeper application.

Kapacitív, vagy rezisztív mód
Capacitive or resistive?

“Impedance in medicine is a characteristic of any tissue that allows current to pass through it”

How many times in Tecarterapy have we decided to use the capacitive (448kHz) or resistive (750kHz) method for the same treatment because we were not sure which to choose?

Many companies, (perhaps too many), recommend a 10 minute capacitive treatment as well as a 10 minute resistive treatment with greater pain relief.

We need to be clear about something! The electric current we are talking about goes around the body and releases more energy into areas where there are large impedance changes. More specifically, this happens at the interface of high and low impedance, where more energy is released (for example, between bones and soft tissue).

The current will always take the less difficult path (low impedance), so it will never pass through the bone, but will release energy on the outside – according to the principles indicated earlier. In assimilating this concept, it is easy to understand the difference between resistive and capacitive.

A resistive is a non-insulated metal electrode that can release energy where it encounters an impedance difference. If the electrode is below the surface, a high-impedance tissue (such as bone or a large tendon) can be identified immediately, and much of the energy is better distributed over the surface; if, on the other hand, the difference between high and low impedance is identified at greater depth, more attention must be paid to the path of the current. This current path is determined by the position between the plate and the electrode. From this it is immediately clear that resistance is necessary to work well with geometries.
