Benefits for the patient
Treatment at the patient’s home
The small size and the use of battery allow you to work with the device also in places where there is no access to power supply or its quality is insufficient for the use of other devices of this type. The portability of the device allows for ultrasound therapy treatments to be performed on patients who, due to their health condition, cannot benefit from treatment in the physiotherapist’s clinic. The device with its full equipment fits comfortably in a specially designed Astar bag.
The PhysioGo.Lite SONO device offers only classic ultrasound therapy treatments, but also the possibility of conducting LIPUS (Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound) therapy, using low-frequency pulsed ultrasound waves. This method is particularly valued for its effectiveness in supporting the treatment of wounds, burns, nerve damage, degenerative diseases and bone fractures. It is also an excellent support in the treatment of non-union (so-called pseudoarthrosis) and delayed union.
Like all other Astar devices, the PhysioGo.Lite SONO meets the requirements of the Council Directive 93/42/EEC concerning medical devices and is also adapted to the latest requirements of the Medical Device Regulation 2017/745. The device has also been awarded the European CE mark, which confirms the appropriate level of product safety and compliance with the requirements (safety of use, health and environmental protection directives).

Design and comfort
The PhysioGo.Lite SONO device was developed in collaboration with the medical community. The device has been optimized for efficient, comfortable operation. Comfort of use is ensured by the 5-inch color display with touch panel.
Built-in treatment programs database
PhysioGo.Lite SONO contains a ready base of treatment programs for such medical fields as orthopedics, neurology, aesthetic medicine, dermatology, angiology, rheumatology and sports medicine. It also allows you to create your own programs and conduct therapy in manual mode. Adding the program to the favorites list allows you to quickly find the most frequently used parameters in ultrasound therapy.
The PhysioGo.Lite SONO device supports three models of ultrasound therapy heads. The SnG head, a new addition to the range of Astar ultrasound devices, is a operator-free accessory with a large front surface area (17.3 cm2 or 34.5 cm2 depending on the selected mode of action), which is used in classic ultrasound therapy, phonopheresis, LIPUS therapy and combined treatments (in combination with electrotherapy).
The GU-1 head with a front surface area of 1 cm2 generates a wave of 1 or 3 MHz frequency. It is used for sonication of small areas of the body in classic ultrasound therapy, LIPUS treatment and combined therapy.
The GU-5 head with a front surface area of 5 cm2 (1 or 3 MHz) is applied in ultrasound therapy, as well as in treatments in which phonophoresis is used. This standard head type allows also to carry out LIPUS and combined therapy.
Each of the heads has been equipped with a temperature sensor, guaranteeing treatment safety.
