A shockwave is defined as a wave with a rapid increase of pressure within a very short time and then having a gradual decrease of pressure with a small negative pressure phase. Shockwave is aimed at the affected areas that are the source of chronic pain. The influence of shockwaves leads to better vascularization and removal of inflammatory products.
The after-effect is relief from the pain.
The Medray Acoustic Wave has fully adjustable treatment parameters and presets as well as two power settings and adjustments for both. Impulses of 1-16 Hz per second can be achieved. An easy-to-follow menu allows fast and rapid delivery of the treatment to the patient with excellent touch screen graphics that even suggest what treatment head to use.
Acoustic wave therapy has been shown to be a powerful tool in most musculoskeletal conditions such as frozen shoulder, decreased range of motion, and plantar fasciitis. Not only does the treatment promote healing and increased mobility, but it also helps flush out body toxins due to the rapid pressure increase and reduction from the continued sound waves.
The Medray AW is competitively priced and offers the features and convenience of units costing $10,000 or more. Everything is included with the Medray AW and it has one of the fastest learning curves of any acoustic wave on the market.
