Compressed air accelerates a projectile, which strikes an end piece. The kinetic energy from the collision is converted into a sound wave, which is then propagated through the skin to the target tissue. The depth and radiation of the wave is dependent on the material of the end piece and the frequency setting of the device.
Newly developed hand control, with all main operating elements integrated into the handpiece. This allows for safer treatments on patients as changes can be made to settings without looking away from the patient. Frequency, energy levels and number of shocks applied can be adjusted directly via selector buttons. Only product of its kind on the market.
Enables targeted application of pneumatically generated vibration pulses to the tissue. Microcirculation is improved by compression and decompression, and metabolic waste products and toxins are removed via the blood and lymph system. Elongation of fascial and muscle fibres restores normal muscle tone as muscle shortening and hardening is eliminated.
VACU-ACTOR® vacuum therapy Radial shockwave therapy and V-ACTOR® vibration therapy with the MASTERPULS® MP200 “ultra” are complemented by VACU-ACTOR® vacuum therapy. Unique ergonomic design: all important control elements are integrated into the “FALCON” handpiece display and, thus, facilitate uninterrupted and quick treatment directly at the patient.

“I’m from Europe where Pressure Wave technology is the gold standard used to treat Erectile Dysfunction. In the United States pills, potions, injections, tablets and pumps are more popular. In our practice here in the United States I successfully treat Erectile Dysfunction with Pressure Wave Therapy. We are able to give patients spontaneous erections without the needs of pills, pumps, or injections, so therefore, they don’t need to pre-plan. Pressure Wave technology is as natural as you are going to get when it comes to addressing ED. We have noticed that just about every patient has realized significant improvement. This is a very, very good treatment allowing for spontaneous natural erections over a very long period of time.”
