SHOCK WAVE COMPACT is an electro-medical device that provide therapeutic treatment by using shock waves through the aid of a special probe/applicator.
Shock waves are acoustic waves that carry high energy, transmitted through the surface of the skin and spread radially in the body, in the area of pain. The body responds with increased metabolic activity in the area of application, helping to decrease the inflammation caused by analgesic action induced by the local release of endorphins, stimulating and accelerating the healing process.
It is an active therapeutic type device, non-invasive, mainly used by physiatrists, physiotherapists and pain therapists.
Such equipment can be used in hospital environment and on an outpatient basis.
The SHOCK WAVE COMPACT series provides radial shock waves, since the shock wave is generated by means of a special shaped hand piece gun, whose barrel is closed at the end by a metal cap against which a projectile of steel is launched by means of compressed air.
This generates a shock wave which spreads radially expanding in the skin and underlying first layer of tissue, or in a focused way (depending on the transmitter used). The measure of the penetration depth varies from 4 to 7 cm.
The devices for shockwave therapy SHOCK WAVE COMPACT have a control console optimized depending on the specific field of use and type of operation for which they are intended.
All operating parameters are managed and controlled in real time by a sophisticated electronic circuit microprocessor, with clear representation and signaling of various functions through LCD touch-screen display with backlight (located on the machine) and appropriate sound signals.
The programs stored are the result of operational experience gained through years of support by professionally experienced users and will serve as a suggestion guide for starting treatment.
Three dispensing heads are supplied with the machine and allow you to perform various treatment protocols. The heads are clamped to the probe through the fixing ring.
SHOCK WAVE COMPACT gives the possibility to save personalised programs and client files in two different memory slots:
where you can store and retrieve personalised programs and patient files.
Both memory slots can be FORMATTED at any time to be used again with other suitable devices. You can use these units to save personalised protocols, to load and execute programs and to delete treatments no longer in use.
The standard protocols of therapeutical suggestions are stored in a further fixed internal memory of the device. This memory cannot be managed by the user: stored data cannot be deleted or formatted. You can save any modifications only in the other memory units, creating a personalised protocol.

Execution of the treatment
The surface of the area to be treated has to be covered with abundant contact substance "GEL" (the interface enhancing the acoustic conduction of ultrasound energy).
The distribution of radiating energy must be carried out by means of a massage, moving the applicator on the radiated part, so as to respect the principle of the “equal distribution of energy dose”.
The loading procedure of a treatment follows the steps described in the sections FREE PROCEDURE and WIZARD. When on the display the window of the chosen program appears, you click on the START button to activate emission.
The programs stored proposed are the result of operational experience gained through years of support by professionally experienced users and will serve as a suggestion guide for starting treatment.
The ability to change the parameters according to the needs of the operator ensures versatility essential in medical contexts.
The equipment SHOCK WAVE COMPACT is specially packaged for transport in a single pack with filling which has been specifically studied for safe transportation and storage.
To remove the equipment from the pack, place the box on a smooth, flat surface. Open the top of the box and remove the polystyrene filling. Be very careful when removing the contents of the pack.
The unit and accessories are wrapped in transparent sheets of polyethylene protection and contain the following:
