A noninvasive device that uses pulsed audio shock waves to stimulate damaged tissue regeneration launches in Europe. SANUWAVE, Inc. of Alpharetta, Georgia : The company describes itself as an emerging medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of non-invasive, biological response activating devices in the regenerative medicine area.
Reports the European launch of orthoPACE, a device intended for use in orthopedic, trauma and sports medicine following CE mark approval last month.
The orthoPACE incorporates the Company’s proprietary Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression (PACE) technology platform that delivers extracorporeal shock wave technology (ESWT) to treat a wide variety of chronic and acute conditions in hard and soft tissue.
This award-winning device platform generates high energy, electrohydraulic shock waves that activate biological signaling and angiogenic responses, including revascularization and microcirculatory improvement, helping restore the body’s normal healing processes and promote regeneration.
The orthoPACE™ has a compact, portable design and allows for treatments to be performed by a single operator in both the hospital and office setting. The device features a new, unique applicator that is less painful for some indications and may reduce or completely eliminate anesthesia for some patients. – Full Article Source
