Shock waves

//Shock waves

Shock waves are acoustic waves carrying a high amount of energy through the tissues, that irradiate in the body until reaching the sore area. Shock waves are characterized by a rapid change in pressure, with great amplitude and non-periodicity.

The amount of energy that is transferred to the tissue is much higher than the energy produced by ultrasounds.
Our body reacts to the shock waves passing through it by increasing the metabolic activities in the treated area and facilitating the reduction of the inflammation caused by an analgesic effect induced by the local release of endorphins.

The healing process is thus stimulated and accelerated.
Our devices emit a radial (ballistic) shock wave, since the wave is generated by a special pistol-shaped probe, whose barrel is closed at its end by a metallic cap; a steel bullet is shot against this cap using compressed air (max pressure 5 bar).

 In this way, a shock wave is generated that spreads moving radially through the skin
and in the underlying layer of tissue, or in a more focused way.
