The PiezoWave2 is a focused-ESWT device used by therapists and doctors for the treatment of;
- Muscle tears
- Ligament tears
- Bone fractures
Using piezo electric crystals, the Piezowave2 produces high-energy acoustic waves which are focused to a shockwave at precise depths. The therapy source does not use a parabolic mirror or reflector plate giving it the title of the only DIRECT focused shockwave. This means there is no ‘bouncing’ of pressure waves ensuring;
- Maximum, consistent energy being delivered,
- More comfortable treatments,
- Better results in a shorter space of time.
Unlike radial “shockwave”, f-ESWT therapy source allows you to pinpoint damaged tissue, target this region and treat effectively with no impact on healthy tissue.
The linear therapy source is the perfect bridge between radial and focused ESWT. The shockwave delivered covers a larger area of 20mm x 46mm x 2mm (depth x length x height) whilst still maintaining the physiological benefits of true shockwave.
The therapy sources are guaranteed to 5 million shocks each (10 million total) is 10x more durable than any other shockwave on the market, making it the most cost-effective choice.
Why focused shockwave?
- Targeted treatments
- Stimulate new blood vessel growth (Angiogenesis)
- Stimulate biological, chemical and physical responses to promote tissue regeneration
- Induce calcific reabsorption in tendinopathies
- Promote new bone growth
- More tolerable treatments for your patient
- Only DIRECT focused system in the world
- Linear focused shockwave – perfect bridge between radial and focused shockwave
- 10x more durable, (guaranteed to 5 million pulses)
- Most powerful system available on the market
- Lowest noise level
- Precise and adjustable penetration depths between 0-100mm
- Smallest, most accurate focal zone
Conditions treatable with Focused Shockwave

Manifestation pattern of the extracorporeal Shockwave therapy using mechanotransduction
“Compared to other shockwave systems, this is completely different. We are so much more precise with it, so it’s not so brutal. Out of all the devices we’ve used this is probably had the biggest immediate impact. One of our main issues is chronic scar tissue and this really helps us target that. Nearly every player who has been in the last few days has used it and we’ve had no adverse effects”.

Many clinicians are faced with the challenge of having conditions which are hard to treat with traditional conventional methods. Bryan Kelly, from CK Physiotherapy, has been using the Focused Shockwave device to treat the more complex injuries such as calcific tendinitis and plantar fasciitis.

What is shockwave therapy?
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with sub-acute, sub-chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
Is shockwave therapy effective?
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is an effective modality in relieving pain intensity and increase the functionality and quality of life in various tendinopathies such as plantar fasciitis, elbow tendinopathy, Achilles tendinopathy and rotator cuff tendinopathy. There is also successful clinical evidence for the application on bone injury, men’s health and ligament injury.
Is focused shockwave different to radial shockwave?
Yes. Focused shockwave is considered by International Societies, experts and to produce a ‘true shockwave’ whereas Radial produces a much weaker pressure wave, which is also backed up in the literature.
The differences in energy levels produced by each variation of shockwave have profoundly different impacts on the tissues. This is reflected in there being few indications for radial “shockwave” where focused shockwave can be used for much more as it stimulates cellular responses.
Is shockwave expensive?
It depends on which system you are looking at and what you want to achieve. Radial “shockwave” is cheaper than focused shockwave. Clinically, however, focused shockwave systems are considered to be more effective. Focused shockwave is also less painful than radial meaning patients prefer this treatment option.
How do I know which is the right shockwave system for me?
The important thing is to not rush into a decision. Where you can try as many systems as you can and find out more about the companies selling the systems and what support you will get.
The main things to consider are:
– Durability and efficiency
– Energy levels produced
– Indications for use
– Focal zone size
– Relationship between frequency and intensity
– Depth control
– Training options
