CTU S Wave


Diamagnetic technology

SHOCK WAVE WITH DIAMAGNETIC GENERATOR

The sound pressure field generated by the shock waves is a divergent field tending, by nature, to produce specific spatial gradients.

In CTU S Wave the operator, through a simple and intuitive software interface, can changethe temporal and spatial gradient of the shock wave issued, depending on the characteristics of impedance, elasticity and absorption of the various damaged biological tissues.The technological innovation of CTU S Wave is a more effective approach to the pathology to be treated.

Furthermore, CTU S Wave combines the effects of the induced energetic component of the pressure field connected to the shock wave with the effects of the diamagnetic repulsion by associating biostimulating action with a drainage effect allowing the reduction of treatmenttime by optimizing healingtime.

The shock wave generator of CTU S Wave is a patented device and is the only one that can offer the chance to contextuallymodulate the following values:

• spatial/temporal gradient of the wave
• power (namelythe pressure gradient)
• waveform (defined “envelope of the wave generated”)
• overall energy that will influence the desired effect on the tissue
• three-dimensional holographic focuson the tissue under treatment.

Controlling the waveform
The sound pressure field of the shock waves is a divergent field tending, by nature, to produce specific spatial gradients. In the generators of shock waves without diamagnetic technology, the spatial gradients cannot be adjusted and modulated therefore only one and unchanging waveform is generated.

Conversely, a generator with diamagnetic technology allows intervening on the spatial gradients generated, influencing positively the pathology in relation to depth, anatomical area and type of tissue influenced.

Absence of the painful component
The own property of the “diamagnetic” generator of CTU S Wave to intervene on spatiotemporal gradients of pulses, allows also the efficient control of the painful component that is completely absent during the treatment.

Spatial focusing
CTU S Wave is equipped with a set of special lenses, built according to the principles of the Fresnel lenses each of which characterizes the focus geometry of the pulse into tissues during the energetic emission. According to this principle the treatment method can be both focused and radial, meeting the different therapeutic needs.

Temporal focusing
Caused by effect of the operating mode selected and wave front adapted.
The temporal modulation of energy pulses allows varying the amount of energy to be emitted in the unit of time on the various tissues in order to avoid overloads and sudden damages of tissues that are not under treatment.

Operating mode
CTU S Wave is the only device allowing to carry out shock wave treatments by selecting specific mechanisms of action and operating modes for a stable adjustment to the sound properties of tissues and to the anatomical pathological phase. In particular with CTU S Wave it can be changed:

• the overall energy emitted, namely the time interval when the power selected is expressed. It depends on the effect that I want to obtain on tissues (separation of calcific and/or fibrotic components, stimulation, drainage), on the interaction on soft/hard tissues and on the acute/chronic phase of the pathology;
• the wave front, represents the envelope of the wave generated and therefore the field gradient. The wider is the wave front, the quicker will be the pulse and therefore the more rigid will be the intervention on tissues. The wave front joined to the operating mode selection allows a specific adjustment to the tissues by increasing the therapeutic efficacy and reducing or eliminating completely the painful component.
• power, namely the pressure gradient to be generated on tissues.The greater is the power selected the greater is the pressure exerted upon tissues.

The selection of treatment parameters takes into account:

• the painful phase of the pathology,
• the presence of an acute or chronic trauma,
• the interaction with a resistant or soft tissue

Diamagnetic effect
With CTU S Wave , when the shock wave is developed, it is transduced from magnetic energy into mechanical energy with special focus lenses in the tissues. The residual magnetic energy, finished the

transduction effect into tissues, is used to obtain an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect increasing the efficacy of the shock-wave treatment.

Applications fields

The therapeutic results, thanks to the DIAMAGNETIC EFFECT, express:

• early evidence of response of the tissue to the treatment
• more manageable application because the patient does not feel pain
• reduction of necessary sessions according to the standard protocols
• net improvement also in treatment-resistant patients treated with the traditional shock wave
