What is EPAT?
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is a highly effective and noninvasive treatment that uses sound waves to increase blood circulation and help your body repair damaged tissue. EPAT is an in-office procedure that takes 5-10 minutes and can provide immediate pain relief.
Are you ready to be pain-free? Shockwave therapy may be your answer.
Patients like you who suffer from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain now have access to an innovative, non-invasive treatment that will get you feeling better faster.
CuraMedix Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced non-invasive technology which uses energy based on unique sets of acoustic pressure waves.
EPAT helps to improve the regenerative potential, rather than further damage an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse or weakness.
In as few as four to eight 10-15 minute sessions, you’ll be able to return to your favorite sport or activity. And there’s no downtime.
Find out how.
EPAT: Let’s talk about the benefits:
- No anesthesia required
- No risk of infection
- No scarring
- No downtime
- Over 80% patient satisfaction
- Cost effective
- Faster, easier healing
What is EPAT?
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), sometimes referred to as ESWT or shock wave therapy, is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.
What disorders can be treated?
Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:
- Foot and ankle
- Lower extremity
- Upper extremity
- Back and chest
- Myofascial trigger points
Many sports medicine physicians and podiatrists claim this therapy works wonders for plantar fasciitis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, achilles tendinopathy, and calficic tendinopathies.
What are the expected results?
Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.
Is it safe?
Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.
What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?
Treatment sessions take approximately 10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, at least 4 treatment sessions and rarely more than 6 are necessary at weekly intervals.
What are the possible side effects or complications?
The non-invasive EPAT treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases, patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work.
What if I have a special health condition?
The safety and effectiveness of the EPAT procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions. Your doctor will provide you with information about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the EPAT procedures.
- DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
How is the treatment performed?
Coupling gel (ultrasound gel) is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT pressure waves are released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular motion.
Why consider non-invasive EPAT?
EPAT has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time.
- Performed in your physician’s office/ clinic
- Does not require anesthesia
- Requires a minimal amount of time
- Bear weight (i.e. walk) immediately,
- Return to work/normal activities within 24-48 hours
- Resume strenuous activities after 4 weeks.
