Since the late 1980s it has been a well-known fact that shock wave energy stimulates the regeneration of body tissue.
LithoSpace® Ortho with its high-energy electrohydraulic shock wave source is the modern successor of the triumphant first generation high-energy models.
The variable penetration depth of 0 to 220 mm affords a trouble-free treatment of femoral head necroses or hard tissues in adipose patients. The dynamic energy density of 0.14 – 0.4 mJ/mm² and the large therapy volume render the LithoSpace® Ortho the ideal device for orthopaedic treatments of both soft and hard tissues in possibly one single session. Therefore, the range of clinically approved indications extends from enthesiopathies (tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis) to the treatment of bone tissues where fracture healing is retarded (pseudoarthrosis).
Thanks to the patented ball head guide, the LithoSpace® Ortho therapy head is extremely flexible in all planes and can be positioned accurately to a millimetre. The unique 3D-SuperVision ultrasound and X-ray localization unit can be offered as a useful optional addition for the precise treatment of hard tissue, for example.
