This industry-leading radial pressure wave device offers innovation and performance combined with unmatched clinical and economic value for acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Radial Pressure Wave: How It Works
The OrthoPulse Ultra 100 is a compressed air ballistic pulse wave generator. The pulse waves in the device are generated with a precision ballistic mechanism in the handpiece. A projectile is accelerated by compressed air. The motion and weight of the projectile produce kinetic energy. When the projectile impacts against an immovable surface, the pulse transmitter, this kinetic energy is converted into sound energy. This acoustic pulse is transmitted into the tissue to be treated either directly or via an acoustic impedance adapter with the help of a gel.
With its progressive technological advancements, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®), often referred to as ESWT or shockwave therapy, delivers an evidence-based*, non-surgical solution for patients suffering from acute or chronic pain. It addresses the increasing demand for patient convenience, less downtime and risk, as well as better clinical and economic outcomes, and improved practice efficiencies and cash flow.
Health care professionals are using EPAT®to successfully treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. Areas include:
