Greater Power & Depth for Better Treatment
In Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), a wave is produced by a small explosion generated underwater inside an applicator. This wave is focused through a lens 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 (<2s). This can penetrate deep into the tissue, up to approximately 4.7″, with a precise focus on a small target, for treating heel pain due to chronic proximal plantar fasciitis.
