MyACT Technology

Specifically designed for myofascial treatments 

 

Focused therapy source                            Linear therapy source

Richard Wolf has specifically designed piezo therapy sources that provide low energy / low pressure levels for myofascial and muscloskeletal pain treatment. The therapy sources generating a gentle presure pulse in abstinence of shockwaves with cavitation. Piezo-ceramic elements are geometrically arranged on a concave surface so that when they are excited simultaneously by a brief, high-voltage pulse, they expand by a few micrometers to generate a low energy pressure pulse. The piezo elements are precisely aligned so that each pressure pulse generated focuses in a specific area. This precise focusing of the pulse creates an acoustic compression event at the point of focus.

The PiezoWave2 MyACT system provides you with the choice of two piezo therapy sources for this superficial treatment. The Focused Therapy Source for pin-point, focused treatments and the Linear Therapy Source for larger, more superficial treatments.

 

Penetration depth

The piezo MyACT technology uses interchangeable gel pads which contact the patient to ensure that the shockwave penetrates precisely to the desired depth with as little scattering as possible. These gel pads are used as spacers and change the penetration depth in increments of 5 mm. They accomplish this by drawing the therapy source's static focal area incrementally superficial or deep respectively. Penetration depths of between 0.5mm and 3 cm are possible, depending on the therapy source.
