Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) is used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints. MyACT uses acoustic waves to target tissues at varying depths by compressing and manipulating the tissue, resulting in a focused, precise deep tissue massage, resulting in improved circulation and pain relief.
Acoustic pressure waves are characterized by a pressure surge with an extremely short rise time, which is then followed by an exponential drop in pressure and a brief phase of negative pressure. The pressure waves used in MyACT applications focus or develop in the target tissue at the point where the pain originates.
The MyACT Story
Many types of focused soundwaves have been used in the eld of medicine with great success for more than 20 years. Based on a high level of evidence, Richard Wolf GmbH – a manufacturer of lithotripsy (ESWL) and orthopaedic (ESWT) devices – has specfically designed Piezo therapy sources to generate low energy/low pressure applications for the treatment of myofascial and musculoskeletal pain.
Acoustic pressure waves are mechanical waves that result from the back-and-forth vibration of the particles of the medium through which the sound wave is moving. A MyACT single pressure wave is characterized by an acoustic pulse with a spatial expansion and a very short rise time of only a few nanoseconds. After a few microseconds, the rise is followed by a brief period of negative pressure, after which pressure returns to normal again.
The PiezoWave can help alleviate pain from Carpal Tunnel, Plantar Fasciitis, Hip pain, Tennis elbow and so much more.
