Physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, doctors, and veterinarians often need portable devices while working in the field. The from Storz is a compact shockwave therapy machine in the treatment of pain in the musculoskeletal system. Conveniently priced and designed for ease of use, it is the ideal starter model.
The MASTERPULS® ONE
Weighing less than ten kilograms with dimensions of 289 x 238 x 310 mm, the was designed with a clear focus on ease of use, efficiency, and mobility. It is perfect for house calls or other demands, like travelling with a sports team.
The light weight and ergonomic SPARROW® radial handpiece ensures effortless handling and treatment. The handpiece can be serviced directly by the user, which saves costs. It supplies excellent damping during pressure wave generation, reducing handpiece vibrations. As a result, the can run longer than most other radial pressure wave systems available today and is approved for far longer than a working day.
The handpiece introduces kinetic energy into the target area inside the patient’s body as the compressed air-powered projectile strikes the elastically suspended transmitter. These pressure waves propagate across large tissue areas, which stimulates the nervous system, releasing nitric oxide and other messenger substances. Benefits include improved metabolism and angiogenesis and the release of vascular endothelial growth factors.
The can be agilely deployed for the treatment of all standard indications such as achillodynia, tendinitis, epicondylitis, plantar fasciitis, tibial stress syndrome, and tendinopathy.
The Need for Mobility
Once thought of as a thing of the past, the house call is making a big comeback. Advancements in portable medical technology is improving the options for home-based primary care, which can help lower the cost of healthcare by keeping patients at home and reducing the use of hospitals and nursing homes.
In the United States, that two to four million patients could benefit from home-based care, but only twelve per cent are receiving it. This number is expected to double over the next two decades with increasingly aging populations.
Practitioners can use the MASTERPULS® ONE to better help patients receive the care they need in the comfort of their own home.
Shockwave therapy is also a smart choice for injured athletes who aren’t responding to typical first-line treatments, such as ice, rest, or therapeutic exercises. While effective, surgically repairing an injury can require long recovery times. Shockwave therapy offers a happy medium between the two options.
The MASTERPULS® ONE is a convenient shockwave therapy machine for practitioners working with athletes who need therapeutic devices while travelling with their teams.
These are just a few of examples of how the MASTERPULS® ONE can be applied in the field. If you would like to learn more about integrating shockwave therapy machines into your practice, contact us today by calling 1 (888) 741-SHOC(7462) or by visiting our website.
