The device is small, handy and mobile, EMS reports. ‘It ensures a gentle and efficient treatment with pneumatically generated shockwaves, which are transmitted into the area of pain. Impulse frequencies can be freely selected, allowing the duration of treatment to be kept as short as possible: A treatment with 2,000 impulses only takes about five to ten minutes. Installation is immediate. All you need is a normal electrical outlet, then: Plug and treat!’
