What are the reasons behind choosing the suggested protocol?

This protocol was chosen based on our extensive clinical proven experience in treatment of cardiovascular ischemia, in order to maximize the effect of shockwaves on the development of collaterals. Collaterals develop usually within 2-3 weeks, which is the reason for the chosen intervals between treatments. In addition, animal studies found that maximal expression of angiogenic […]

I have heard that the shock wave applicator (lithotripter) in the urology department is noisy and there is a need to wear ear protection. Is it required during ED treatment?

No. Unlike Urologic applications, ED treatment with shock wave requires less powerful shock waves (1/10th of Lithotripsy). For that reason the ED1000 is fitted with a smaller generator, producing less intense electrical sparks thus generating significantly less noise. There is no need to wear ear protection during treatment.  

Is it necessary to hospitalize the patient?

What are Shockwaves?

Shockwaves are acoustic waves, similar to ultra-sound waves that are generated by an underwater high-voltage spark. Shockwaves are single pulse waves with high-pressure amplitude, small pulse width and a short rise time. Shockwaves are delivered noninvasively, focused by a special ellipsoid reflector.
