Handheld device kills head lice with ultrasonic waves

Every parent dreads their child scratching their head it usually means one thing: head lice. An Israeli start-up hopes to ease the pain of dealing with the small, persistent parasites with a hand-held device that uses ultrasound technology to kill lice and their eggs in a treatment that takes minutes. ParaSonic’s vice president of technology, Michael Kardosh, says the technology is not new, but using a specific frequency at a low intensity to treat head lice is a new application of ultrasound waves. ParaSonic’s device is designed to be easy to hold, with wide metal teeth that send the ultrasound waves as it moves through the hair. The teeth are covered with a disposable plastic magazine that collects the dead lice and eggs and should be thrown away after each use.
