Acoustic waves generated by a shockwave trigger biological effects which lead to faster and
long-term healing and regeneration of tissue
Shock Wave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (EWST), is a
non-invasive treatment that involves the delivery of shock waves to an injured area to
promote healing. This treatment produces highly effective shock waves that initiate
biological regeneration processes at the cellular level.
Treatment involves technology that applies short, frequent, and high-intensity bursts
of mechanical energy (in the form of a shockwave) into soft tissue that is injured,
scarred, or contains adhesions, is painful, or inflamed.
Acoustic waves (shockwaves) with high energy peaks interact with tissue which causes biological
effects that may include accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia, and mobility
restoration. All the processes are employed simultaneously and are used to treat chronic and
In electromagnetic shockwave generation, the shock wave is emitted by
a flat coil or a cylindrical coil by electrical pulses. In the flat coil, a membrane is deflected which compresses a medium (water). The pulse
is focused by means of an acoustic lens. In the cylindrical coil, the shock
wave is focused by a reflector.
The piezoelectric principle is based on a focus on pressure waves, which are produced by the electrical activation of piezoelectric
crystals. The piezoelectric crystals are mounted in a shell in such a
way that the pressure waves of each crystal meet in a focus.
Treat deeper, wider, and faster with our uniquely
designed ellipsoidal reflector. High energy
discharges create low-intensity focused waves.
