ESWT – EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY
True Shockwave Technology Treating a Wide Range of Orthopedic Disorders
Orthospec™ – Medispec’s Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) system is the ultimate solution for chronic orthopedic indications (as described below). The Orthospec was developed after extensive theoretical expertise and practical experience in the field of shock wave therapy, as one of its masterpieces and one of the most significant devices in the orthopedic field. When other therapies such as corticosteroids and conventional physiotherapy fail, Orthospec provides highly efficient results; it is a safe, non-invasive and rapid non-surgical method for treating resistant or nonresponsive orthopedic injuries, as well as chronic inflammations, reducing pain and increasing function level dramatically.
The system is available in three models; Orthospec, Orthospec Compact and Orthospec Desktop. The Orthospec Desktop is designed based on Medispec’s accumulated experience and expertise, enabling physicians to extend treatment availability to additional small facilities, and at home treatments.

How Orthospec Works?
Extracorporeal Shock waves are applied directly onto the pain source, resulting in analgesic effect. In addition ESWT induce multiple favorable biological effects such as: attenuation of inflation, vasodilation and improved perfusion, induction of angiogenesis, fragmentation and absorption of calcium deposits, tissue regeneration (e.g. Ostegenesis). The treatment protocol varies between one to several sessions, depending on patient’s condition, the severity of the pathology and the individual healing rate. An outpatient procedure lasts up to 20-30 minutes.
The Orthospec has the highest success rate of all medical devices available in the market today. It dramatically reduces pain levels, and enables speedy recovery from a variety of orthopedic ailments and disorders. Numerous FDA approved studies have concluded that ESWT treatments using the Orthospec show success rates exceeding 78%. The Orthospec is in use worldwide since 2001. The Orthospec focuses on safety, simplicity and ease of use. Medispec’s patented Therapy Zone™ is the largest in the industry and guarantees a superior treatment.
