Mobile 2 RPW Shockwave
Like our bigger Intelect unit, the Mobile RPW offers radial pressure wave treatment as a non-invasive treatment solution for chronic tendonapathies and other soft tissue disorders. Treatments administered to the affected areas stimulate the regeneration process of injured tissues which have sustained histological changes.
Radial pressure wave therapy is best indicated for resilient conditions that have not responded to traditional therapy.
Physiological effects of the shockwave include: increased cell permeability, neovascularization, pain control and reduction of adhesions and fibrotic tissue prohibitive of healing.

Greater Power & Depth for Better Treatment
In Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), a cylindrical wave is generated underwater inside the handpiece. This wave is focused through the reﬂector and transmitted into the tissue.
Chattanooga's Intelect Focus Shockwave device electromagnetically generates an extracorporeal shock wave, which produces a high pressure peak in a very short amount of time (<2μs). Thus, allowing for focused treatment of heel spur at a depth of 1 inch. The shock wave is focused to a small targeted area for treating heel pain due to chronic proximal plantar fasciitis.
