The focused Piezo shockwave to treat wounds
Richard Wolf and ELvation have developed a new and unique linear focused shockwave. Their aim was to develop a more homogeneous and effective shockwave application compared to conventional point focused shockwaves. Using gel pads, the penetration depth can be adjusted in gradual steps to a depth of between 0 and 20 mm, optimizing the focus of the acoustic field for dermatological applications. The size of the focal zone created by the linear focused piezo therapy source (FBL10x5G2, intensity level 10), for example, measures 46mm x 20mm x 4mm. The penetration depth of the focal zone is adjusted prior to activation by applying gel pads of different thicknesses. The "0" gel pad can be used for special applications of the linear focused shockwave. With the "0" gel pad, half of the focal zone remains in the gel pad; this ensures that the peak pressure of the focal center will be focused precisely on the skin's surface.
The system can be expanded at any time by purchasing additional optionally available therapy sources.

The unit requires very little maintenance. To maximize the life of your product, we recommend the following:
In the EU, an annual safety inspection is mandatory. This inspection should be combined with a functional check carried out by a maintenance engineer.
The therapy source has a guaranteed lifespan of 5 million shockwave pulses and/or 2 years. A functional check carried out by a maintenance engineer is recommended at the end of this period.
