62 yr old DFU patient after 4 SoftWave sessions
MECHANISMS OF ACTION
• Modulates inflammation
• Increased blood supply
• Stimulates cytokines and growth factors
• Promotes Angiogenesis
• Wound epithelialization
• Tissue Regeneration
SoftWave produces a biological response that accelerates angiogenesis and revascularization which promotes faster wound healing.
SoftWave initiates a more rapid and effective healing phase.

Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy (EWST) has been widely used to treat a wide range of conditions, including complex and chronic non-healing soft tissue wounds with different etiologies, such as DFUs, peripheral arterial diseases, venous leg ulcers, and pressure ulcers.
ESWT has been demonstrated to positively impact the four stages of wound healing:
EWST is an adjunctive therapy that can be combined with standard wound care therapies.
ESWT is an evidence-based, non-invasive, convenient treatment for chronic wounds, including DFUs. One study found that using ESWT to treat chronic wounds resulted in nearly three-fourths (74.03%) of wounds closing and not reappearing in the same location.
Moreover, a meta-analysis that looked at five randomized studies implementing EWST across multiple types of wounds, including burns and DFUs, found a 20% absolute efficacy advantage for ESWT relative to control treatments and achievement of 50% of the performance goals outlined for ESWT effectiveness.
The SoftWave TRT patented, unfocused applicator design makes it possible to spread energy to a large treatment area to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and without microtrauma.
