Flashwaves® are longitudinal waves that travel through the body at supersonic velocity, carrying the energy of the flash which created them. The physical force of Flashwave® causes shedding of micro-vesicles from cell membranes without harming the cells.
These micro-vesicles contain nucleic acids as well as proteins and other molecules that activate neighbouring cells—initiating intrinsic healing and repair mechanisms.
These mechanisms include the release of angiogenic growth factors, which leads to to vessel sprouting (angiogenesis) and the activation of stem cells, which in turn causes new vessel formation (vasculogenesis). At the same time, an increase of the metabolic activity of cells, proliferation and a positive, modulating effect on inflammation can be observed.
Flashwave® initiates communication with and among cells, activating an intrinsic repair program within the tissue. This revolutionary cellular communication is the key to Flashwave’s® unique medical efficacy without any relevant side effects.
At the core of Flashwave technology is a high-voltage electrical discharge. The visual result of the powerful discharge in the kilovolt range is a flash, and the acoustic result is a bang.
To harness the energy created by the flash, it is surrounded with a precisely formulated liquid that is displaced when the flash is ignited. The displacement of the liquid is the wave that carries energy needed for the biocellular transduction, traveling at a supersonic velocity from our Cellular Communication Interface (CCI®) to the targeted treatment area.
Each Flashwave® impulse of any other extracorporeal shockwave device presently on the world market. Because of this high energy, Flashwave® technology has been specifically indicated for complex musculoskeletal, urological, diabetic and aesthetic conditions.
Flashwave® is a regenerative therapeutic technology unlike any other. Imagine what it can do for your practice—and for your clients.
