The device is used for the RSWT (Radial ShockWave Therapy). Generated in the head, kinetic energy is converted to acoustic energy on contact with the skin. The wave reaches deeper tissues (up to 6 cm deep into the body) and superficial tissues.
The biological action of the shockwave produces numerous effects desirable in medicine, such as analgesic, anti-inflammatory, regeneration or disintegration (in calcification).
With its unique properties, Impactis M can be used effectively in rehabilitation, orthopaedics and sports or aesthetic medicine.
The main areas of applications for the device include chronic pain, removal of calcification, elimination of tendon fatigue, intrafascial fusions and enthesopathy.
A powerful amount of energy generated by Impactis M can produce truly astonishing results: it can eliminate a severe condition, prevent a surgical intervention and reduce the rehabilitation time even by half.
Impactis M was designed to provide the operator with optimal working conditions. An easy to read 7-inch touchscreen with a knob for accurate adjustment guarantees easy operation right from the start.
Impactis M offers the full control of parameters and the progress of treatment. A simple and easy to read user’s interface prevents from selecting undesirable parameters or an operation mode. The process of generating and accumulating energy in the head can be stopped at any moment.
Impactis M was cleverly designed to include the maximum power and functionality in as few elements as possible and a neat and compact enclosure. Owing to its small size, the device can be easily transported and used outside the physiotherapist’s surgery, e.g. at the patient’s house or in the sports hall.
Impactis M was developed in cooperation with physiotherapists with many years of experience. Their proposals and observations became the basis for developing 43 treatment programs dedicated to specific disorders. You do not have to worry about setting treatment parameters; just select a proper program from the list.
Impactis M sets new standards in therapy and rehabilitation. The biggest advantages of the therapy performed with the device include:
- high efficiency (clinically confirmed);
- no side effects;
- short treatment duration (around 10 minutes) and short patient improvement time;
- no need to use pharmaceuticals;
- option to combine symptomatic and causal treatment.
Impactis M was made in close cooperation with medical practitioners, physiotherapists and researchers of renowned universities. Thus, as a product that meets the actual needs of the medical community, it has quickly built up a well-deserved reputation on the market.
“I have been working with Impactis M for 2 years and I am a very satisfied user. Big areas in the touchscreen allow me to change parameters easily during the treatment, and the absorbing system has a beneficial effect on the physiotherapist’s work ergonomics. A big advantage is the titanium transmitter that performs well in chronic conditions.”
“I am a sports physiotherapist and in my professional practice I often perform shockwave treatments with the ASTAR IMPACTIS M. So far, I have used the wave among athletes of various disciplines, basketball players, hockey players and volleyball players, with very good results. Athletes are a unique group of patients who need strong stimuli to speed up the regeneration of the locomotor system. Increased muscle mass and strong tendons and ligaments manifestly respond to such mechanical stimulation. I use the shockwave to reduce the increased muscular tension, eliminate trigger points, provide post-workout regeneration, treat the damage to muscles and ligaments (strains or tears) and scarring and treat chronic inflammations (tendinopathy and enthesopathy). In the rehabilitation of athletes, the key factor is the time of recovery and getting back to training. Therefore, I use the wave at shorter time intervals than in ordinary patients. I believe that the shockwave should be the basic equipment of every professional sports club as it accelerates considerably the healing of sports injuries.”
