What is the instrument called that creates different tones

does anyone know the name of the instrument that is used to create different tones, it is adjustable allowing high and low frequencies and shows the tone in hertz

Theremin? Used a lot in sic-fi movies. Ex. - "The Day the Earth Stood Still"

Ultrasound for medical reasons, measured in hertz.

kind of, but its more of a piece of scientific equipment rather than an instrument- almost like a toner, maybe a dial that increases / decreases the frequency

IDK, but I'll keep snoopin' Is this machine used for medical reason, such as the relaxation of tight muscles? A dial is used to regulate the electrical impulses given out.

That is a very vague description, but a tool that would do that would be a tuner.

A synthesizer could be what your asking for, but I can't know for sure, your question is too vague.
