Multi-Hour Daily Ultrasound Therapy for Soft Tissue Injury

About

Course Description: 

An overview of multi-hour therapeutic use of ultrasound for treatment of soft tissue injuries

Level of Difficulty: ​Intermediate 

Presenter Bio: George Lewis, PhD

Dr. George Lewis has been principal investigator on multiple biomedical research

projects. These activities have included clinical studies, verification & validation,

manufacturing qualification and regulatory/insurance reimbursement strategy for class

II/III devices. Dr. Lewis has considerable experience in ultrasound miniaturization,

wearable electronic systems and the study of biological effects of ultrasound on tissue.

In his career, three of the notable contributions to science are: 1) Demonstrating the

safety of daily long-duration ultrasonic stimulation to biological tissues, 2) Studying the

mass transfer phenomena of ultrasound on molecules and nutrients in poroelastic

biological tissues, and 3) Establishing designing principles behind ultrasonic systems

using ultralow-impedance electronics and transducers. Dr. Lewis has been recognized

for leadership and engineering innovation, and have been featured by the NSF, NIH,

DOD and other government and private granting organizations for biomedical research

and commercialization. In June of 2020 Dr. Lewis was invited to present the last decade

of translational mechanobiological ultrasound research at the 2020 NIH Pain

Consortium Symposium. His personal drive is to bring innovation, science and

stakeholders together to develop solutions to improve healthcare and quality of life. 


Dr. Lewis has spent his career in leadership and growth positions in medical

technology, translational science and education. Dr. Lewis was a Presidential Life

Science Fellow, a National Science Foundation Fellow and United States Senate Page
