Sydney Physio Clinic Offers High Quality Radial Shockwave Therapy

Choosing the right shockwave therapy machine for our patients was Sydney Physio Clinic’s priority when we looked into purchasing one of the different machines available on the market. With the relatively recent success of shockwave therapy as a treatment modality, more and more manufacturers are now making radial shockwave therpay units. Prior to purchasing a unit we tried a number of shockwave therapy machines from four of the main manufacturers and spent over three months trialling the different machines before making our final decision. In the end the decision to go with the DolorClast Master Touch Radial Shockwave Therapy Machine was an easy one. Out of all the machines we tested the DolorClast Master Touch for us was clearly the most appropriate for our clients needs, purchasing the DolorClast unit made sure we are able to provide our patients with the option to receive the very best radial shockwave therapy Sydney has to offer and ultimately that is what the whole trial period was about.

Don’t Be Fooled: Not All Sydney Shockwave Therapy Is The Same

At Sydney Physio Clinic we saw no point in purchasing an inferior machine because it was cheaper or more portable. We chose the DolorClast machine because where we felt the DolorClast Master Touch left the competitors behind was that the delivery of energy from this machine to the targeted area was unparallelled. All other machines we tested and trialled although indicating they delivered the equivalent intensity shockwave therapy the actual sensation of energy delivery from the DolorClast machine was significantly greater than any other unit we tried.
The 30 kilogram air compressor of the DolorClast unit was able to deliver a pressure wave and energy sensation to the targeted area that was far greater than any of the other machines could muster. With the other manufacturers shockwave units we found we needed to set them to maximum or near maximum intensity levels to deliver a sensation near comparable to the pressure and energy sensation felt with the DolorClast machine at low intensity pressures. At Sydney Physio Clinic we felt this had a lot to do with among other things the size and weight of the unit and the “punch” it can deliver as a result of the weight of the DolorClast medical grade compressor is significantly greater than any of the other units on the market. Putting a 30kg compressor up against a 7kg or even a 17kg compressor is like pitching a heavyweight boxer against a featherweight it’s obvious who will come out on top.

The Master Touch Shockwave Therapy Machine Has The Research Behind It

Further to the sensation being unparallelled when comparing machines, looking the the body of research behind shockwave therapy the majority of this research has been carried out using DolorClast machines. Shockwave therapy has some pretty impressive research studies to support the use of the therapy. However after trying a number of different machines for us it was obvious that no two machines delivered the same treatment. So although you may be paying for shockwave therpay and doing so because the research suggests it would be useful for your condition. Unless you are receiving shockwave therapy from machines used in research you can’t necessarily expect the same results as the studies obtained. Having looked at much of the research available on radial shockwave therapy this was the final clincher in our decision. Not only did the DolorClast unit feel completely different and superior to the other machines we trialed it had the research to support it.

What Sets Sydney Physio Clinic’s Shockwave Therapy Machine Apart?

  • The swiss DolorClast Machine comes from E.M.S. Electro Medical Systems and was founded more than 30 years ago in Switzerland the provide medical equipment with unequaled quality all crafted with Swiss precision.
  • The Swiss DolorClast Master is the first and only one device to feature an air pressure Vs Energy Flux Density (EFD) converter. This option automatically calculates the EFD output (in mJ/mm²) corresponding to the air pressure level chosen for the treatment.
  • The EVO BLUE unique hand piece delivers constant Energy Flux Density (EFD) output throughout the entire spectrum of frequency, and not only is the EFD constant, but the EVO BLUE delivers a higher energy compared to other handpieces on the market.
  • The EVO BLUE treatment handle used at Sydney Physio Clinic offers therapist controlled variable force application with an indicator to ensure correct pressure is applied during treatment as well as easily adjustable pressure application depending on the area being treated. No other units on the market have the handle feature.

The quality of the shockwave is what is important and not all Sydney shockwave therapy is the same. The DolorClast machine used at Sydney Physio Clinic provides the highest quality radial shockwave therapy Sydney has to offer and DolorClast has the research to back it up.
