Abstract

Shortly after world war II therapeutic ultrasound was developed to treat musculoskeletal injuries (Figure 1). In 2008 doctoral student George Lewis gets literally “shocked” at the Cornel Lab. Shortly after that he invents and patents, a low voltage, low impedance, portable, wearable, rechargeable ultrasound device. At a meeting of doctoral students at Cornel where students would present their doctoral studies Lewis said, his ultrasound device would “change the world”. Thus, Sustained Acoustic Medicine (SAM) Figure 2 was released to the public. Today, 2019 the device is used by several universities, hockey, basketball, football and baseball professional sports teams, and by US government healthcare agencies.
