DirexGroup has harnessed its 23 years of experience in shock wave lithotripsy
toward the development of an orthopedic shockwave therapy system.
This system is designed to provide relief of chronic painful irritations
in tendons and joints, e.g. "tennis elbow", golf elbow" or calcareous
deposits in the shoulder.
Orthima is a compact, economically priced and easy to use system
providing non invasive and anesthesia-free treatment.
The focal zone of the pressure waves coincides with the painful area.
During therapy, low energy density is transmitted through the skin
via the water cushion.
This innovative, cost effective, easy to use system accommodates
in-line ultrasound localization and is used in the physician's
office and outpatient centers.
