Focusing in on pain
MyACT treats pain resulting from
• Myofascial dysfunction
• Trigger Points
• Repetitive stress injuries
• Soft Tissue Strains
Puts cells into motion
• Years of research have shown that mechanical forces, including tension and compression, greatly influence various cellular functions such as gene expression, cell proliferation and differentiation, and secretion of matrix proteins.
• Cells also use mechanotransduction mechanisms to convert mechanical signals into a cascade of cellular and molecular events.
• Tenocytes in tendons, fibroblasts in ligaments and skin, osteocytes in bone, chondrocytes in articular cartilage, and endothelial cells in blood vessels are mechano-sensitive and respond to mechanical forces.
• Acoustic Compression Therapy's influence as a pin-pointed delivery of mechanical stimulus can result biochemical events that lead to increased circulation and pain relief – key components in the healing process
Easy to understand and simple to operate
The PiezoWave2 TM has a simple user interface and foot pedal controls that enhance it's daily use. The control unit recognizes which therapy source is plugged in to provide the appropriate energy spectrum during use. Individual settings can be adjusted with just a few keystrokes and via the treatment control foot pedals. The PiezoWave 2 MyACTTM is designed with an IPad Holder offering you the possibility to attach your IPad to display patient information, treatment charts or downloaded treatment Apps. (IPad not included)
• A safe, adjunctive approach to treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain
• MyACT improves range of motion making adjustment easier
• Improved circulation alleviates pain and muscle tightness, and promotes healing
• MyACT helps your patients return to more normal daily activities
• Patient satisfaction influences referrals and your reputation as a provider of effective therapies
