Futura Fit™ is based on a system that combines ultrasound energy with a subsequent electrical current application, in conjunction with fitness, diet, and supplements. The combination results in weight loss, inch loss, toning, improved circulation, lymphatic drainage and muscle re-education. Sonophoresis is a process that can move molecules across cell membranes using ultrasonic waves. It is commonly used to increase the absorption of semisolid topical compounds (transdermal delivery) into the epidermis, dermis and skin appendages. Sonophoresis occurs because ultrasound waves stimulate micro-vibrations within the skin cell membranes and increase the overall kinetic energy of molecules. It is used in hospitals to deliver drugs through the skin. Pharmacists compound the drugs by mixing them with a coupling agent (gel, cream, ointment) that transfers ultrasonic energy from the ultrasound transducer to the skin. Sonophoresis is also used without drug delivery in physical therapy, and as a
