In orthopaedics, extracorporeal shock wave therapy, also known as ESWT, has been used successfully for many years - for example to treat chronic inflammations. Another form of ESWT is radial shock wave therapy, also known as RSWT.
In RSWT, radial shock waves are generated mechanically by compressed air. A small, light, high speed projectile is accelerated by compressed air which hits an applicator which lies on the skin and distributes the shock. The impact pulse in the form of a pressure wave is transmitted to the body via a coupling medium such as a gel. An oil-free compressor is used to generate the mechanical pressure wave.
Due to the use of compressed air, this method is also known as pneumatic shock wave therapy. Our oil-free compressor is the heart of the shock wave device. The air compressor KK15 offers you an economical and quiet solution for your shock wave device. Thanks to oil-free compressor technology and a suction filter with a pore size of 2 µm, the compressors deliver high air quality.
Since the shock wave device is located in the treatment room, it is important that the compressor operates at low noise levels. Dürr Technik compressors are also characterized by their durability and robustness. All compressor units are maintenance-free.
For over 40 years, Dürr Technik has been specializing in oil-free compressors for hospitals and medical practices. We supply manufacturers of ESWT devices with optimal compressor units for low-noise, oil-free compressed air generation. Due to many years of experience, we are qualified to advise you right from the conception of the project to the installation and to ensure your satisfaction after the purchase. We would be happy to supply advise to you, so please get in touch.
