Shock Wave Therapy Equipment, ESWT extracorporeal shockwave therapy, also called Acoustic Wave Therapy Equipment, mainly for physical therapy treatment, sports injury and rehabitation treatment.
Radial Pulse Therapy (RSWT) is a newly FDA-approved treatment technique. It uses Shockwaves to mobilize the soft tissues of the body to achieve effects that are difficult or impossible to achieve by handle.
BS-SWT2X SMARTWAVE uses the latest electric-magnetic technology, without air-compressor, so comes with longer lifecycle, at the same time it can provide higher energy and frequency for better treatment result. From technical view, BS-SWT2X can reach energy from 10mJ (0.25Bar) to 190mJ (5Bar), adjustable at stepping 10mJ(0.25Bar). Frequency ranges from 1Hz to 22Hz adjustable.
BS-SWT2X SMARTWAVE has rich software, include: 38 pre-set treatment protocols, wizard-treatment menu, unlimited customized settings, customer profile management. From the view of patient's feeling, BS-SWT2X provides more comfortable feeling, thus even customer receive same dosage in treatment they will have better feeling (less pain).
From the view of transmitter, BS-SWT2X Smartwave has 5 different alloy made transmitters targeting to different depth and treatment disease.It includes 6mm, 15mm, 15mm unfocused, 25mm, 36mm,which covers most applications for physical treatments as well as aesthetics treatments.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The normal number of treatments for most foot and ankle conditions are 4, but certain more severe injuries may require up to 9 (see my story above). 4-10 days between treatments is recommended for the body to recover naturally. If the maximum number of 9 treatments is required, it is advisable to wait 4-6 weeks before the next treatment is given to the same area.
Radial Pulse Therapy: The Smartwave Radial Pulse therapy system is an advanced system that uses short, intense electromagnetic shockwaves to treat musculoskeletal pain. It works by stimulating the break down of scar tissue and adhesions, causing an inflammatory response which increases blood circulation to the area and helps relieve pain, promote healing and improve range of motion. Radial Pulse Therapy is indicated to treat pain from muscle, tendon, ligament and bone injuries due to trauma, overuse or arthritis. The smartwave device consists of a hand piece in which electromagnets are projected on an applicator tip producing radial energy waves that penetrate deep into the tissues (35-40 mm) where other forms of therapy (heat, ultrasound, electrical stimulation) cannot reach.
Here is a list of injuries that we have helped with Radial Pulse Therapy :
• Plantar Fascitis• Achilles Tendonitis• Peroneal Tendonitis• Patellar Tendonitis• IT Band Pain• Hip Pain (Muscular)• Lower Back Pain• Mid Back Pain• Neck Pain• Muscle Knots and Trigger Points• Shoulder Pain• Rotator Cuff Injuries -Acupuncture-Back Pain -Pinched Nerve-Sciatica and Leg Pains-Foot, Ankle and Leg Pain-Achilles Tendonitis-Gluteus Medius Syndrome-High Ankle Sprains-Ankle Sprain-Calf Muscle Injury-Knee Pain
Advantage and Specification of SmartWave:
Long lifespan acoustic wave applicator, over 2-3 million shots before maintenance needed
Ti-alloy made applicator, can fully transfer energy to patients, double efficiency than 1st generation
Can continuously work over 10000 shots without break, so as to provide excellent treatment result
More than 38 pre-set treatment protocols, and support user defined protocols
Energy from 10mJ to 190mJ, adjustable per 10mJ as stepping (equal to 0.25Bar to 5Bar)

Application: Physical: - Sports Injury/- Rehabilitation ( also diabetes )/- Pain relief (Chronic)/- Body injury
What type of conditions can be treated with Shock Wave Therapy? Shock wave treatment can successfully address acute and chronic issues as:
Knee Pain/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 Achilles tendinopathy/Chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain (myofasical pain syndrome)/Heel pain/heel spur (Plantar fasciitis) Tennis/Golfer's elbow (radial/ulnar humeral epicondylitis)/Jumper's 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)/Bursitis (most joints) Stress fractures/Mortons Neuroma/Scar Tissue Treatment (Helps to reduce chronic pain from damaged connective tissue) Hallux Rigidus/Cellulite/Lymphatic drainage/Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)/Heel Pain/Foot Pain/Ankle Pain Plantar fasciitis/Hamstring Pain/Back Pain/Neck Pain/Shoulder Pain/Elbow Pain/Wrist Pain/Hand Pain/Peyronie's disease Erectile Dysfunction (often used in conjunction with PRP injections)
Shockwave therapy is a modality that is becoming more common in the field of physical therapy, as well as other health care fields. Shockwave therapy, or extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), is used in the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions, primarily those involving connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons.
Orthopedic conditions commonly treated with shockwave therapy include:
