Service Description

Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) is a method for the treatment of superficial orthopedic disorders developed over the past 20 years. A projectile accelerated in the handpiece generates a mechanical pressure wave, which is transferred to the human body by an applicator head and which radiates out in the tissue. The mechanical energy is absorbed by the tissue and decreases as the distance from the application site increases. The mechanical stress triggers reactions in the tissue that have a positive influence on a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions. The method is used by therapists all over the world with great success. With the enPuls 2.0, Zimmer MedizinSysteme now offers a system that bundles all the advantages of the application that is easy to operate and apply with maximum flexibility and mobility. enPuls 2.0 is ideal as a system for radial shockwave therapy, for superficial orthopedic problems such as: Insertion Tendinopathy Tendon problems Chronic inflammation Hypertonic muscle systems Myofascial syndromes Hematoma treatments Muscular Injuries Cartilage & Meniscus *studies ongoing, promising efficacy Softshot – pulse enPuls 2.0 generates a special form of shockwave with a relatively heavy projectile and a comparatively low impact speed – the enPuls 2.0 softshot shockwave. The energy is primarily generated by the volume of the pulse and not by the high amplitude and the extremely short rise characteristic of comparable compressed-air devices. This requires that the shockwaves with rise times of approx. 3.5 µs and the typical energy settings also generated by compressed-air devices pass through the tissue without any change in the form of the wave, because the stress is within the moment of inertia and the module of elasticity of the tissue. Different from focused shockwaves, which have rise times less than 100 ns and which results in a desired gradation of the wave in the tissue causing cavitation and tissue destruction, with radial shockwaves it is not the exponential effect but simply the amount of energy that triggers the reactive processes. The slower rise of the wave (approx. 13.5 µs) and the significantly lower peak amplitude mean that enPuls 2.0 does not generate the typical whiplash effect of the shockwave, which makes it easier for the patient to tolerate.
