Focused Shock Wave

The FDA Approved Focused Shock Wave is the next generation of ESWT Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment with patented focused “Cylindrical Source“ Technology available from CuraMedix.

  • Description

    This unique device leads the industry in innovation and performance for the treatment of pain associated with chronic proximal plantar fasciitis.

    How it Works:

    This Focused Shock Wave device uses an electromagnetically generated shock wave produced within a hand-held applicator  (F-SW Hand piece). The shock wave is generated by discharging a high voltage capacitor located in the control unit into a cylindrically shaped coil system in the handpiece which is surrounded by a cylindrical metallic membrane. The transient magnetic field produced by the coil induces eddy currents in the metal membrane, causing it to repel from the coil, producing a pressure wave. The membrane is immersed in water and the pressure wave produced by the membrane propagates through the water to a concentric parabolic reflector, where it is reflected to a focal point outside of the handpiece in front of the reflector.

    The Benefits:

    With its progressive technological advancements, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT/ESWT) delivers an evidence-based*, non-surgical solution for patients suffering from chronic heel pain.  It addresses the increasing demand for patient convenience, less down-time and risk, as well as better clinical and economic outcomes, and improved practice efficiencies and cash-flow.

    Health care professionals are using EPAT/ESWT to successfully treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include:

    • Foot and ankle
    • Lower extremity
    • Upper extremity
    • Back and chest
    • Shoulder
    • Neck
    • Myofascial trigger points
