About SWT Physical Therapy Equipments Radial Shock Wave EPAT Physiotherapy Shockwave Machine
SmartWave BS-SWTX adopts extracorporal shockwave therapy (ESWT), which is a method for the treatment of superficial orthopedic disorders developed over the past 20 years. The extreme method of using bundled sound waves with high intensity was selected because the mechanical/acoustic waves of force can be focused at a defined point with a parabolic reflector to ensure that stress limits are not exceeded in the remaining tissue. The penetrating depth can reach 0 - 60mm.
Shockwave, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, is an internationally established method of treating pain and inflammation through stimulating tissue repair.
Employing high energy acoustic waves, shockwave induces new blood vessel growth and tissue regeneration, thereby treating many pain conditions.
Although introduced to Singapore for well over a decade as one of the best treatment options available for pain relief, its use has up till recently been limited by the small number of doctors offering this option.
Treatment with earlier generation shockwave machines were also quite painful, usually requiring local anesthesia.
They were also very costly devices resulting in expensive treatments, which not many patients could afford.
Fortunately medical technology research in recent years has resulted in new devices which provide much more comfortable treatments and no longer require any local anesthesia injections.
They have also dramatically brought down treatment costs and made shockwave very affordable to patients with pain.
The sources of shockwave generation include electrohydraulic, electromagnetic and piezoelectric principles. Electrohydraulic shockwaves are high-energy acoustic waves generated under water explosion with high voltage electrode. Shockwave in urology (lithotripsy) is primarily used to disintegrate urolithiasis, whereas shockwave in orthopedics (orthotripsy) is not used to disintegrate tissues, rather to induce tissue repair and regeneration. The application of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) in musculoskeletal disorders has been around for more than a decade and is primarily used in the treatment of sports related over-use tendinopathies such as proximal plantar fasciitis of the heel, lateral epicondylitis of the elbow, calcific or non-calcific tendonitis of the shoulder and patellar tendinopathy etc. The success rate ranged from 65% to 91%, and the complications were low and negligible. ESWT is also utilized in the treatment of non-union of long bone fracture, avascular necrosis of femoral head, chronic diabetic and non-diabetic ulcers and ischemic heart disease. The vast majority of the published papers showed positive and beneficial effects. FDA (USA) first approved ESWT for the treatment of proximal plantar fasciitis in 2000 and lateral epicondylitis in 2002. ESWT is a novel non-invasive therapeutic modality without surgery or surgical risks, and the clinical application of ESWT steadily increases over the years. This article reviews the current status of ESWT in musculoskeletal disorders.
Mechanism of eswt shockwave machine pain relief device shockwave therapy
The mechanism of shockwave therapy is not fully understood. The most important physical parameters of shockwave therapy for the treatment of orthopedic disorders include the pressure distribution, energy flux density and the total acoustic energy. In contrast to lithotripsy in which shockwaves disintegrate renal stones, orthopedic shockwaves are not being used to disintegrate tissue, but rather to microscopically cause interstitial and extracellular responses leading to tissue regeneration
What type of conditions can be treated with Shock Wave Therapy?
Shock wave treatment can successfully address acute and chronic issues as:
Break up Calcifications
Enhanced blood vessel formation
Enhancement of Trigger point injection therapy
Collagen stimulation and cellular recovery
New blood vessel formation
Achilles tendonitis and shoulder tendonitis
Chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain (myofasical pain syndrome)
Heel pain/heel spur (Plantar fasciitis)
Tennis/Golfers elbow (radial/ulnar humeral epicondylitis)
Jumpers knee (Patellar tendonitis)
Muscle tension caused by painful muscular nodules (Trigger points)
Shoulder pain, shoulder calcifications (Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendonitis)
Achilles tendon pain (achillodynia)
Shin pain (Tibial stress syndrome)
Hip joint pressure pain (greater trochanter pain)

How long does this treatment take?
Treatment sessions take approximately 15 minutes per site and vary slightly depending on the site to be treated. Generally 3 treatment sessions are necessary and are performed on a weekly interval. If you are improving, but not completely better; up to 5 treatments can be performed.
What conditions can be treated with EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment?
EPAT can be used to treat many painful soft tissue injuries. Including: plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, tendon insertional pain, acute and chronic muscle pain, and myofascial trigger points.
What are the results of this EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment?
After EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment, some patients may experience immediate pain relief, while for others it may take up to four weeks before significant relief is felt. Over 80 percent of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.
Is it safe?
Yes. This FDA approved technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT device, and extensive studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.
Is EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment safe for pregnant patients?
EPAT is a safe treatment, but has never been tested on pregnant patients. Patients are advised to wait at least 3 months post partum before treatment, as many foot pains subside after weight loss and hormonal equilibrium is reached.
What are the expected results?
Most people will experience pain relief after 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the first treatment, but maximum relief can take up to four weeks after the last treatment to begin. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free or have significant pain reduction.
Are there any special aftercare instructions?
All patients receiving EPAT therapy Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment should be off all anti-inflammatory medication for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the procedure and 4 weeks after. This includes common over the counter medication such as, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve) and aspirin. Your doctor will provide you with detailed after care instructions.
What are the possible side-effects or complications?
EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment is a non-invasive treatment and has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. On rare occasion, the skin may become bruised or red after the treatment.
Who should not have EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment?
EPAT should not be used in people who have deep venous thrombosis or malignancy. It is also best to avoid the procedure if you are taking blood thinners.
Why consider EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment?
EPAT has a proven success rate equal to or better than traditional treatment methods (including surgery) without the risks or lengthy recovery time. It is performed in your physicians office without the need for anesthesia.
Is EPAT Shockwave Therapy Machine Treatment covered by insurance?
No, unfortunately insurance companies do not pay for EPAT, though the cost of EPAT can often be reimbursed from a qualified health savings account or flexible spending account. Non-covered services and/or procedures without billable terminology are paid to the office by the patient at the time of service; a claim will not be submitted to the insurance, though our office can provide receipts for reimbursement accounts to consider.
