      Ultraschall-Bestrahlungsvorrichtung Ultrasonic irradiation device   
 Zur Einstrahlung von Ultrasehall in belie bige Körper, insbesondere für medizinische Zwecke, wurde bisher der in Form eines Handgriffes ausgebildete Ultraschallstrahler in Form einer Streichmassage über die zu behandelnde Körperpartie hinweggeführt. For irradiating Ultrasehall in belie bige body, especially for medical purposes, the designed in the form of a handle ultrasonic emitter in the form of a gentle massage on the treated part of the body was carried away before.  Dieses Vorgehen ist sehr zeitraubend und mühsam, da der Arzt oder die-Hilfskraft während der gesamten Behandlungsdauer manuell beschäftigt ist. This procedure is very time consuming and tedious, as the doctor or the auxiliary force is manually engaged during the entire treatment period.  Aus diesem Grunde ist auch vorgeschlagen worden, den als Handgriff ausgebildeten Behandlungskopf mit einem Stativ zu fixieren und an der zu behandelnden : Sör- perpartie anzusetzen. For this reason, it has also been proposed to fix the handle designed as a treatment head with a stand to be treated and on the: Sör- perpartie be recognized.

    Dieses Verfahren hat sich ebenfalls nicht durchsetzen können, da geringste Bewegungen des Patienten den Schall übergang bereits stören und ausserdem bei der Einstrahlung mit ruhendem Behandlnngskopf der jeweils erfasste Bezirk wesentlich kleiner ist als bei Einstrahlung mit bewegtem Behand lungskopf. This process has also not been successful because the patient's slightest movements transition to sound already disturbing and also upon irradiation with resting Behandlnngskopf of each captured district is much smaller than for irradiation lung head with moving treatmen.   



    Diese überstände werden bei der Vorrieh- tung nach der Erfindung dadurch vermieden, dass an einer Saugvorrichtlmg mehrere Arme angeordnet sind, an welchen leicht drehbar und verschiebbar Ultraschalistrahler angeordnet sind. These supernatants are tung in Vorrieh- according to the invention avoided in that several arms are arranged on a Saugvorrichtlmg to which rotatably and slidably Ultraschalistrahler are easily arranged.   



    Fig'. Fig '.  1 zeigt ein Ausführungsbeispiel der Vorrichtung. 1 shows an embodiment of the apparatus.  Bei 1 erkennen wir den Körper, welcher bestrahlt werden soll, beispielsweise den menschlichen Körper. In one we recognize the body that is to be irradiated, such as the human body.  2 ist ein handels üblicher Gummisauger, 3 ein luftdicht in ihn eingeführtes Rohr, auf welches der Gummiball 4 aufgesteckt ist. 2 is a commercially conventional rubber suckers, 3 an airtight tube introduced into it, to which the rubber ball is placed. 4  Mit 5 sind Blattfedern bezeichnet, welche mit gewisser Reibung um das Rohr 3 herum drehbar angeordnet sind. 5 with leaf springs are referred to, which are arranged with a certain friction about the pipe 3 around rotatable.



   An ihnen befinden sich die Arme 6, auf welchen in Längsrichtung verschiebbar und mit einem einzigen Griff fixierbar, die Gelenke 7 angeordnet sind, welche die Arme 6 mit den Stäben 8 zusammenhalten und sie in jeder gewünschten Richtung gegeneinander festzulegen gestatten. , the arms 6, on which in the longitudinal direction and can be fixed with a single handle, the joints 7 are arranged, which hold the arms 6 with the rods 8, and they allow to define in any desired direction against each other in them.  An den Stäben 8 sind in einer Richtung wirksame oder auch kardanisch ausgebildete Gabeln 9 angebracht, welche dafür sorgen, dass sich der betreffende Ultraschallstrahler jeweils der Neigung der Körper- oberfläche selbsttätig anpasst. Forks 9 are mounted on the bars 8 in a direction effective or gimbal formed, which ensure that the ultrasound radiator in question surface adapts automatically in each case the slope of the body.  Mit 10 sind die flachgebauten Ultraschallstrahler bezeichnet. 10, the flat type ultrasonic emitters are referred.  deren Durchmesser möglichst grösser als ihre Dicke sein soll, und mit 11 ihre Zuführungskabel. the diameter should be as greater than their thickness, with 11 its feeder cable.

    Im Gummisauger 2 sind Mittel 12 angebracht, welche bei sehr weicher Haut ein völliges Hineinsaugen der Haut bis an die Mündung des Rohres 3 verhindern, um ein Nachlassen der Saugkraft zu vermeiden. In the suction cup 2 means 12 are mounted, which prevent at very soft skin a complete Into eyes of the skin to the mouth of the tube 3 in order to avoid a decrease in the suction force.  Diese Mittel können aus einem Rippenprofil, einem eingelegten Drahtnetz oder anderem mehr be stehen, welche ein luftdichtes Anlegen der Haut an die Innenfläche des Gnmmisaugers 2 verhindern. These means may consist of a rib profile, an inserted wire mesh or other more are be which prevent an airtight applying the skin to the inner surface of the Gnmmisaugers. 2



    Die Vorrichtimg wird mit zusamuienge- drücktem Ball 4 auf der betreffenden Körperpartie aufgesetzt, wobei nach dem Loslassen des Balles der notwendige Unterdruck zum hinreichend festen Ansaugen der Vorrichtung selbsttätig entsteht. The Vorrichtimg is placed with zusamuienge- drücktem ball 4 on the relevant body part, wherein automatically created after the release of the ball the required negative pressure for sucking sufficiently solid the device.  Hierauf werden die um das Rohr 3 drehbaren Arme 6 in die gewünschten Richtungen ausgefahren und durch Lösen der Gelenkschrauben 7 die Stäbe 8 so weit nach unten gedrückt, dass die Strahler 10 mittels der Kardanaufhängung 9 am Körper 1 satt anliegend durch die Blattfedern 5 federnd angedrückt werden. Thereafter, the around the tube 3 rotatable arms are extended in the desired directions 6 and the bars 8 as far down by loosening the joint screw 7 downwards, that the radiators are snugly pressed 10 by means of the gimbal suspension 9 on the body 1 by the leaf springs 5 ​​resiliently ,



    In Fig. 1 sind nur zwei Ultraschalistrabler gezeichnet, für eine wirksame Einstrahlung sind jedoch meistens drei oder mehr Strahler erförderlich. In Fig. 1, only two Ultraschalistrabler marked, however, for effective radiation mostly three or more spotlights are erförderlich.  Auch kamin einer der Strahler durch ein Stützbein ersetzt sein, wenn es beispielsweise darauf ankommt, sämtliche Strahler auf der einen Seite der Saugvorrichtung dicht nebeneinander anzuordnen, wie es beispielsweise bei der Paravertebralbestrah hmg erforderlich ist. be a chimney, the radiator is replaced by a supporting leg, for example when it arrives on it, close to each other to arrange all emitters on one side of the suction device, as for example in the hmg Paravertebralbestrah is required.  Da die Saugvorrichtung in diesem Falle sehr schief belastet werden würde, empfiehlt es sich, an der gegenüberliegenden Seite durch ein Stützbein einen Gegendruck auszuüben. Since the suction device would be charged very wrong in this case, it is best to exercise on the opposite side by a supporting leg back pressure.



    Die Vorrichtung gewährleistet eine sichere und reproduzierbare Ultraschalleinstrahlung, selbst wenn der Patient sich während der Behandlung merklich bewegt. The apparatus ensures a reliable and reproducible ultrasound irradiation, even when the patient moves significantly during the treatment.  Auf jeden Fall ist es jedoch erforderlich, ein li : oppelmedium zuvor auf die E Haut zu bringen, welches nicht nur eine sichere Ultraschallübertragung durch Vermeidung der Luftschicht zwischen Strahlern und Haut gewährleistet, sondern ausserdem ein betriebssicheres Ansaugen der Saug- vorrichtung selbst. Es wird vorgeschlagen, hierfür eine wasserlösliche, gelatinöse Paste zu verwenden, welche sich als derart wirksam erwiesen hat, dass die genannte Vorrichtung selbst auf stark behaarten Körperpartien Verwendung finden kann. but in any case it is necessary a li: to bring ouble medium before the e skin, which not only ensures a safe ultrasound transmission by avoiding the layer of air between spots and skin, but also an operationally reliable suction of the suction device itself is proposed. , for this purpose to use a water-soluble gelatinous paste which has proved so effective that the said device can even find use in hairy parts of the body.
