How to Choose the Right Shockwave Therapy Device

August 25, 2022  |  By Elise Hamann

getty imageShockwave was first used in the 1980s and is currently recognized as one of the fastest-growing regenerative technologies in the world. Medical professionals both US and abroad value shockwave therapy as it is evidence-based and non-invasive. 

More and more, healthcare professionals are celebrating shockwave as a treatment game-changer. As word has spread on the efficacy of shockwave, patients now seek out regenerative therapies by name including EPAT(R), ESWT, and EMTT(R). 

Researching and then investing in medical equipment for your practice can be somewhat daunting. When deciding which technologies and devices are best for your practice, put your trust in high-quality products and valued partners.

Define Practice Needs Before Buying a Shockwave Therapy Device

Take time to consider your practice needs and which type of shockwave device would best suit your patients’ concerns and goals, along with your vision for your practice. 

Questions you may want to ask yourself:

  • What issues do my current patients suffer from and seek me out for help?
  • What new patients would this technology help me attract and treat?
  • How will this technology complement the modalities I currently offer?
  • Will this technology help me grow my practice and differentiate me from my competition?
  • Will this technology help me get better patient outcomes and increase patient satisfaction?
  • Is this technology evidence-based and does it have Level 1 studies to back it?
  • When am I looking to bring on this technology?
  • What is my budget?
  • Who have my peers looked to and trusted for onboarding this technology?
