The authors evaluate a Combined Ultrasound and Electric Field Stimulation Device (CUSEFS) on chronic recalcitrant wounds. Patients chosen for the study suffered from Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU’s) or Venous Leg Ulcers (VLU’s). Twice weekly use of the CUSEFS for fifteen minutes a session was performed for one week on patients whose wound had shown no improvement in the previous two weeks. 96% of the subjects showed some response. The majority of these recalcitrant wounds closed between 8-20% in the first week of treatment with CUSEFS.
