Principle of shockwave machine:
A pressure wave is formed via a projectile by using accelerated compressed air. The compressed air is generated by an electronically-controlled ballistic-pressure compressor. Using elastic impact, the kinetic energy of the projectile is transferred into the probe of the applicator and then into the client’s body. Consequently, during the treatment, the end of the applicator must be in direct-contact with the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
Shockwave is aimed at the affected areas that are the source of chronic pain. The influence of the shockwave causes to the dissolution of calcium deposits and leads to better vascularization. The after-effects are relief from the pain.
Shockwave has the following effects:
Cellular: Increase in cell membrane transmittance by improving ionic channels activity, stimulation of cell division, stimulation of cellular cytokines production.
Reproduction of vessels in the area of tendons and muscles: Improvement of blood circulation, increase in concentration of growth factor beta 1, chemotactic and mitogenic effect on osteoblasts.
Effect on nitrogen oxide system: Bone healing and remodeling. Improvement of macro-circulation and metabolism. Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts.
Supports the production of collagen. Reduction in tissue tension. Analgesic effect.
Most men suffering from erectile dysfunction have vascular problems affecting the vessels that supply blood to the cavernous bodies of the penis, resulting in a decreased ability to develop and
maintain an erection. The end result is an inadequate blood-flow followed by premature draining of an already reduced amount of blood
from the cavernous bodies, meaning an erection is not achieved. Shockwave Therapy for ED of this type can be a highly effective treatment.
EMS “Electrical Muscle Stimulation” is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscular injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise passively.
When the muscle receives this signal, it contracts as if the brain has sent the signal itself. As the signal strength increases, the muscle flexes as in physical exercise. Then when the pulse ceases, the muscle relaxes and the cycle starts over again, (Stimulation, Contraction and Relaxation.)
