We analyze here a multitude of results from research and practical use of low-frequency ultrasound in medicine. The technical bases of ultrasound scan welding, cutting, and hydro-treatment of biological tissues are considered from the perspective of expanding the areas of use of ultrasound and creating novel technical devices.
