Swiss PiezoClast

Swiss PiezoClast

The Swiss PiezoClast is the latest addition to a range of products in orthopaedics generating focused shockwaves for the treatment of various indications of the musculoskeletal system such as calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder, superficial pseudarthrosis and patella tip syndrome. Other indications successfully treated with the EMS Swiss PiezoClast are myofascial trigger points in the upper and lower extremities, shoulder girdle and hip area.

Depending upon the specific condition and indication of each individual case, the Swiss PiezoClast allows to adapt energy level and penetration depth as required. Its focused shockwaves are generated based on the piezoelectric principle.

The shape of the handpiece focuses the piezoelectrically generated shockwaves in a single therapeutic focus through thousands of small crystals in the applicator head. The shockwaves are translated past the skin and superficial tissues without effect but instead focused at the desired tissue depth adjustable between 5 and 40 mm.
