WE CAN GO WHERE YOUR HANDS CAN‘T
Focused extracorporeal shockwave systems are the only medical technology capable of generating mechanical pulses within the body which are precise, have varying penetration depths and are completely non-invasive. Extracorporeal shockwaves function as mechanical stressors which initiate biochemical changes in living tissue. A range of scientific publications and studies, some of which have also looked at focused piezo shockwaves, have demonstrated the efficacy of ESWT. Now successfully used to treat a range of different indications, ESWT is an established procedure for conservative medical treatment.
Focused piezo shockwaves and their unique properties have made piezo shockwave systems one of the top-selling shockwave systems worldwide. We have consistently worked to improve this innovative technology so that it can be used to treat new areas and indications. We have especially concentrated on developing a range of focal zones of varying sizes/volumes, strengths and penetration depths. Using single and double-layer piezo technologies, we have developed unique linear focusing therapy sources with significantly larger treatment volumes.
