R-SHOCK, fast and flexible

R-SHOCK is an innovative device that offers a new technology: ‘focused TECAR’.

The TECAR energy is split into multiple heating points to provide focused action that is exceptionally targeted. R-SHOCK combines short treatment times with targeted action – most treatments only take 5–10 minutes. Depending on the mode selected, it can be used for pain relief, vascular or defibrosis treatments. It’s efficient and multi-purpose!

“I use it between 10 and 20 times a day. One example is a patient who had constant pain after six months of knee rehabilitation, plus shoulder tendinitis that still caused persistent pain after radial shockwave sessions. A ten-minute treatment with R-SHOCK led to a reduction in pain of around 80%”
Luciana Pereira, physiotherapist (France)
“I was treating a patient who’d had a motorbike accident more than a year earlier. He had the after-effects of burns on his hand. After six sessions lasting 5–10 minutes, the scars and adhesions had disappeared”
Corentin Gaste, masseur & physiotherapist (France)

It’s such a time-saver – because R-SHOCK treatments are so quick, and the battery-operated device is so portable, several practitioners can easily use it during the same treatment session – a big benefit for group practices.

What therapists are looking
for with R-SHOCK

In the current environment, more and more patients are presenting with neck pain, either with or without accompanying headaches. There are a variety of reasons for this:

  • Badly designed work-stations due to home and remote working (for example poorly adjusted seats, screens positioned to one side) and a lack of breaks
  • Fewer possibilities to play sports, and a sedentary lifestyle
  • Prolonged wearing of masks, leading to disturbances in the visual field that mean it’s necessary to change the position of the neck frequently

Collectively, these conditions are leading to the formation of trigger points at the trapezoids, the levator scapulae, the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM), and the masseters and temporals. Irradiation of these trigger points causes pain that manifests at the skull and cervical level.

With R-SHOCK you can release these trigger points in just a few seconds, thanks to the targeted action of the Fractal Handle combined with MIX mode, which combines the properties of TECAR current with PULSE action. Persistent radiating pain can be eliminated using SWAP mode, which alternates TECAR and PULSE current. TECAR current generates diathermy to free the contractures and PULSE provides local analgesic action.

R-SHOCK has multiple features that enable you
to save time and be more efficient

  • It’s practical: treatments are short (5–10 minutes), it provides targeted action, it’s portable and battery-operated
  • It’s efficient: it’s versatility means you can treat acute pathologies (thanks to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and local drainage effects), subacute pathologies (relaxing and trophic effects), but also chronic pathologies (defibrosis effect)
