How does it work?

  • Compressed air accelerates a projectile which strikes a fixed applicator. 
  • The kinetic energy is converted into a shock wave delivered to the target tissue through the skin.
  • These shock waves are conveyed radially for broad treatment areas.
  • A shock wave begins by a compression phase. The peak pressure creates shear stress in the tissues. 
  • A tensile phase follows and generates cavitation bubbles. A high cavitation level is a result of a high amount of energy density delivered by the shock wave device. 
  • This energy stimulates metabolic reactions to the applied tissues

What are the benefits?

  • Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
  • Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
  • Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cells activation

A typical session will be around 20minutes depending on the condition and area/s treating.
