Focused Shockwave

Intelect® Focus Shockwave

Greater Power & Depth for Better Treatment

In Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), a wave is produced by a small explosion generated underwater inside an 'applicator'. This wave is focused through a lens and transmitted into the tissue.

Chattanooga's Intelect Focus Shockwave device electromagnetically generates an extracorporeal shock wave, which produces a high pressure peak in a very short amount of time (<2 microsecond). This can penetrate deep into the tissue, up to approximately 4.7", with a precise focus on a small target, including treating heel pain due to chronic proximal plantar fasciitis.

Focused Treatment

Focused Shock Waves (F-SW)

Focused shock waves are preferably used in the treatment of deep target areas. The extracorporeal, focused shock wave permits precise diagnosis and therapy of active latent trigger points. Focused shock waves can penetrate approximately 4.7" with pinpoint focus.


The effciency of this modern ESWT device derives from the powerful and individually selectable energy range. The device's shock wave source is equipped with a time-tested cylindrical coil and offers a constantly high energy dynamic in the entire focus zone.

2 stand-offs for tailored treatment

The stand-offs provide different treatment options. The shorter the stand-off head, the more powerful the shock wave and the greater the penetration depth. The longer the head, the more precise the focal zone.
