Shock waves are a short ultrasound emission with a high peak of pressure through a ballistic generator of pneumatic operation.
The generation of the shock waves takes place in the applicator with a precise ballistic. Comprised air is used to speed up a projectile. The movement and weight of the projectile produce kinetic energy.
When the projectile crashes onto a still surface (shock transmitter), the kinetic energy transforms into sound energy. This acoustic impulse is directly introduced into the tissues through an adaptor of acoustic impedance or with the aid of a gel.
Shock waves treatments can prevent surgery in many cases.
