Has anyone tried one of those hand held ultrasound devices?

If so, what is your opinion of them?

Maybe you would have got a better response if you asked for a 2nd hand vibrator with headphones.

Again, what do you plan to use it for?

If it's for inspecting karabiners for cracks it would be next to useless.

If you mean one of those ultrasonic devices you can get to do the same thing as the one from your physio then on the advice of my physio they are useless. The ones the professionals get can burn you if used incorrectly - the ones you can buy off the shelf are do weak they can't burn you and they also can't help you

My physio friends told me recently that recent studies show they are next to useless anyway in helping recovery.

If you are talking about what I think you are talking about, my local GP has one and was able to show mr tendons moving and fluid on my elbow joint when I had burstitis. It was usefull for iscolating the problem.

No, I mean for treating pain and injuries. It makes sense that they would be crap for that, as they sell for 1 tenth of the price of ones that a phsio would have, and get sold to numpties with no training who could cook their insides with a proper one.

But say, compare it to any other form of home treatment, better worse? Would it be like chicken soup, as in, no harm but potential assistance in healing?

You have just as much chance of being put out of your misery if we get the chocky crew gathered round to lay hands on you, either that, or you might even become healed.
No, on second thought, you are beyond redemption, so go buy your miracle cure and let us know how it goes.

Well, if that's the case, I feel less concerned about proposing a more risky alternatitve.
Why stuff around with a namby pamby version, which may or may not work, and instead get a cheap professional one off ebay? 2nd hand medical equipment can be a bargain, apparently.

In offering this suggestion, I'm assuming you can get (and follow) a detailed instruction book and will ere on the side of caution, i.e. you're not a numpty. This is purely based on the fact you haven't killed yourself climbing yet, nor afaik, taken ODH (or anyone else) too seriously.

P.S.I'm still happy you like my hardware.

I think you're onto something with the second proper one, if we got 10 people to put in 200 dollars each (about the price of the small one they advertise on telly) we'd have enough for a proper one, which we could share.

They're not that big, so easily transported, so when one of us is crippled, we just go get it off of the previous cripple.

..... and if I had of stuck to just climbing, I would need the damn thing.

RE: Your hardware. Do those long things spin around and tell the time or barometric pressure, or anything useful?
