Focused Shockwave Therapy

This Focused Shock Wave device uses an electromagnetically generated shock wave produced within a hand-held applicator (F-SW Handpiece). The shock wave is generated by discharging a high voltage capacitor located in the control unit into a cylindrically shaped coil system in the handpiece which is surrounded by a cylindrical metallic membrane. The transient magnetic field produced by the coil induces eddy currents in the metal membrane, causing it to repel from the coil, producing a pressure wave. The membrane is immersed in water and the pressure wave produced by the membrane propagates through the water to a concentric parabolic reflector, where it is reflected to a focal point outside of the handpiece in front of the reflector.

The Benefits

With its progressive technological advancements, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT/ESWT) delivers an evidence-based*, non-surgical solution for patients suffering from chronic heel pain.

It addresses the increasing demand for patient convenience, less down-time and risk, as well as better clinical and economic outcomes, and improved practice efficiencies and cash-flow.

Health care professionals are using EPAT/ESWT to successfully treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or:

  • Foot and ankle
  • Lower extremity
  • Upper extremity
  • Back and chest
  • Shoulder
  • Neck
  • Myofascial trigger points
