Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy
Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy system by Zimmer uses ballistic, high-energy pulses. For treatment of biological tissues and structures in various pathologies and medical conditions. A heavy, electromagnetically accelerated, ballistic projectile transfers its kinetic energy to a transmitter head in the handpiece. The kinetic energy is transformed into impact energy in the applicator head. Shockwaves result and spread out radially from the contact area into the desired treatment region of the body.
