The Sonocur Device is a sophisticated Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy device in which a shock wave is generated at the base of the shock tube by an electromagnetic acoustic source. When a voltage pulse from a capacitor reaches an aluminum membrane, the membrane is repelled causing a shock wave to course through a water filled generator. The shock wave moves through the water into an acoustic lens. The lens then focuses the energy of the shockwave on a concentrated point at a fixed distance from the lens.


The Sonocur administers a wide range of low energy shock waves, without the need for anesthesia. The articulating head of the Sonocur machine is placed onto the area where you feel pain and fine adjustments are made to focus the shock waves on the area of therapeutic focus. This might be your elbow for instance.

The treatment consists of initiating a preset number of pulses or shock waves. As the treatment progresses, a trained technician will graduate the energy level to therapeutic levels.
