What is a shockwave?

Shockwaves are acoustic pulses with high positive pressure, fast and steep rise time followed by comparatively small negative pressure (tensile wave).

The science behind SoftWave

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) produces highly effective shockwaves that initiate biological regeneration processes at the cellular level.

Mechanotransduction Mechanism with 3 Phases

  1. PHYSICAL – Generates a large positive pressure wave followed by a negative pressure wave.
  2. CHEMICAL – Mechanical stimulus leads to biochemical reactions. Biomolecules are released and cell signaling is activated.
  3. BIOLOGIC – Angiogenesis, inflammatory modulation, stimulation of tissue regeneration.

SoftWave’s OrthoGold broad-focused proprietary electrohydraulic device creates a shockwave immediately at the start. This allows energy to be distributed in a superior way.

The patented parabolic reflector generates a primary and secondary wave that spreads the shockwave over a wider and deeper therapeutic treatment zone.

This allows for maximum tissue penetration to enhance the biological effects.

Upon delivery, a cellular response is triggered activating the body’s natural healing process resulting:

Increased blood supply resulting in angiogenesis – the formation of new blood vessels to increase blood flow.

The proliferation of smooth muscle cells to restore tissue elasticity and support tissue remodeling and regeneration.

Activation of endogenous growth factors.
