Chattanooga Intelect Focus Shockwave Therapy

The new Intelect Focus Shockwave offers state-of-the-art Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT). Scroll down to see the video.

In 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.

This focused shockwave has high energy, approximately one hundred times more powerful than a Radial Pressure Wave, making it optimum for a range of conditions in urology, orthopaedic indications, cardiology and neurology.

Deep therapy regions can be treated safely and reliably with focused shock waves. The large focal zone provides enhanced targeting precision.


Key Features:

  • LCD touch screen
  • Unit is transportable
  • Enhanced Energy: 0.01 - 0.55mJ/mm2
  • Broad Frequency Range: 1 - 8Hz
  • 12.5 cm penetration with pinpoint focus
  • 2 year warranty (accessories 1 year)

The Focus Shockwave has the capability of reaching 1000 bar, offering greater flexibility and potency than RPW units. The 3 standoff heads allow for customized patient-specific treatments and the penetration depth means that even deep-rooted problems can be addressed.

Targeted Pain Relief
Shockwaves are used to treat a wide range of pathologies such as bone healing, tendinopathies, muscular trigger points/myofacial pain, dermatology, wound healing, spasticity and impotence. Due to high energy levels of Focus Shockwave it is recommended to use ultrasound imaging before treatment.


  • Epicondylitis
  • Calcific Tendinitis
  • Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Heel Spur
  • Patellar Tendinitis
  • Trapezius Muscle
  • Achillodynia
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Focused Treatment
F-SW - Focused Shockwaves
Focus shockwaves are are preferably used in the treatment of deep target areas. The extracorporeal, focussed shockwave permits precise diagnosis and therapy of active latent trigger points. Focussed Shockwaves can penetrate approximately 12cm with pinpoint focus.

Breaking Things Down
Unlike the Radial Pressure Wave, the Focus Shockwave power allows it to disintegrate calcifications, stones, growths as well as providing the standard benefits of shockwave therapy:

  • Activation of the Healing Cascade
  • Enhanced Blood Flow
  • Tissue Regeneration

3 Standoffs for Tailored Treatment
The standoffs provide treatment options. The shorter the standoff head, the more powerful the shockwave and the greater the penetration depth. The longer the head, the more precise the focal zone.
