Wound care modalities:

    1. Electrical Stimulation
    2. Ultrasound

However, it the last few years the latest low frequency ultrasounds have been specifically developed for chronic wound healing.
      b. Low frequency: Contact (Misonix), (Arobella Qoustic Wound Therapy), (Soring Sonoca180)
      c. Low frequency: Non-Contact (MIST Therapy)
