SoftWave's History

SoftWave TRT, LLC was co-founded in 2004 by CEO John Warlick and business partner Mark Gronowski. The two men combined their years of experience in lithotripsy, a medical procedure that uses shock waves to dissolve kidney stones, and the predecessor technology to what we use today for extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), to form a new company–SoftWave TRT.

SoftWave’s purpose was designated to extend the medical use of shockwaves from lithotripsy and urology to nerve and tissue regeneration, musculoskeletal pain and injuries, cosmetics and likely many more indications that have yet to be discovered. 

SoftWave is sometimes known as stemwave therapy. SoftWave TRT is the first and only supplier of unfocused shockwaves (Li-ESWT_ in North America and continues to research and develop new uses for unfocused shockwave therapy today.
