New technology for life.

SHOCK WAVE WITH DIAMAGNETIC GENERATOR

The sound pressure field generated by the shock waves is a divergent field tending, by nature, to produce
specific spatial gradients.

In CTU S Wave the operator, through a simple and intuitive software interface, can changethe temporal and
spatial gradient of the shock wave issued, depending on the characteristics of impedance, elasticity and
absorption of the various damaged biological tissues.The technological innovation of CTU S Wave is a more
effective approach to the pathology to be treated.

Furthermore, CTU S Wave combines the effects of the induced energetic component of the pressure field
connected to the shock wave with the effects of the diamagnetic repulsion by associating biostimulating
action with a drainage effect allowing the reduction of treatmenttime by optimizing healingtime.

The shock wave generator of CTU S Wave is a patented device and is the only one that can offer the chance
to contextuallymodulate the following values:

• spatial/temporal gradient of the wave
• power (namelythe pressure gradient)
• waveform (defined “envelope of the wave generated”)
• overall energy that will influence the desired effect on the tissue
• three-dimensional holographic focuson the tissue under treatment.

DIAMAGNETIC GENERATOR
CTU S Wave has an electromagnetic generator, and this causes a substantial evolution of the
transduction process.
When the shock wave is developed, the magnetic energy is transduced into mechanical energy and
transferred to tissues through special focus lens behaving like Fresnel lenses. Fresnel lenses result to be
convenient because allow having a flat contact surface with a very reduced volume making its positioning
and application easier.The lenses can be portioned into series of annular concentric sections to obtain
different focal lengths but also different focal geometries, by adjusting again the pressure wave to the
anatomical area and the pathology.

The flat lens reduces the painful component generating through contact, namely through solicitationof
more superficial pain nerve receptors.
The residual magnetic energy, finished the transduction effect into tissues, is used to obtain an analgesic
and anti-inflammatory effect increasing the treatment efficacy to shock waves.

By using the exclusive diamagnetic effect of CTU S Wave, the interaction of the magnetic field on tissues
can be intensified and extended over the time, including during the therapy, and further effects, other than
those usually produced by the traditional shock waves, can be obtained:

• analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect;
• acceleration of soft tissue repair process (ulcers, wounds hard to be healed, burns);
• drainage by DIAMAGNETIC ACTION of oedematous tissues and of accumulations of slags arisen during
breakdown, and by the inflammatory condition of the tissue under treatment;
• total pain absence during application by effect of cell wall hyperpolarization.

ATR Med shows important technological innovations making it a reliable, efficient and very powerful tool.
The exclusive characteristics of ATR Med are:

AUTOMATIC CONTROL OF THE ENERGY SUPPLIED
ATR Med is equipped with a system for controlling the energy administered to tissues during the treatment.It is able to settle the most suitable energy power on the base of: tissue impedance variations; conductive interface used during the treatment; size of electrodes; preselected parameters at the beginning of the treatment; capacitive or resistive electrode adopted.

EFFICIENCY OF TRANSFER AND CALCULATION OF ENERGY ABSORBED
ATR Med is the only device with a patented system allowing to monitor the efficiency of energy transfer during the treatment session.This information is essential because represents the specific power or rather the normalized power according to the volume of the treatment area.Knowing constantly this information means being sure to carry out an effective therapy in respect of the achievable benefit in a specific pathology, envisaging prospective overloads, losses or addiction of tissue.

INTERPRETATION OF IMPEDANCE VARIATIONS
Impedance, simply put, is the measure of the ability of a body to be passed through by the electric current: a low impedance usually suggests a good electrical conductivity, a high impedance means a higher electrical resistance of the tissue.

ATR Med is equipped with an exclusive and patented impedenziometric system of biofeedbacks for evaluating the efficiency of energy transfer to tissues in real time.
This innovation allows energizing tissues in a selective and effective way through a diagnostic evaluation of skin susceptibility and accordingly modulate the use parameters of the machine according to an evaluation of the therapy progress status in terms of therapeutic efficacy and response to the damage solution.

With ATR Med the impedance variations are monitored and real-time displayed in every phase of the treatment.This allows the operator to verify, not only the initial tissue status, but the whole settlement process during the therapy cycle.

ELECTRODES
The constructive characteristics of electrodes used with ATR Med are patented.

IN ALUMINIUM | RESISTIVE
Aluminium is a strong acceptor and binds very easily to ions present in the tissue allowing better
performance than the more common stainless steel.
INSULATED BYCORUNDUM | CAPACITIVE
Corundum has a higher dielectric coefficient than those of materials such as Teflon, pvc or glassceramics.Said
coefficient is so high thata 150-micron layer of corundum is enough to obtain a higher
electrical capacity than that of a 1000-micron layer of other materials.This increases considerably the
electrical connection, having capacities even 100 times higher than standard electrodes with equal
thickness.

METHOD WITH DYNAMIC BI-ACTIVE ELECTRODES
The dynamic bi-active electrodes are an exclusive of ATR Med and allow carrying out particular treatment
manoeuvres without using the fixed neutral.

ADVANTAGES:
• possibility to focus or spread energy just by changing the electrode movements;
• possibility to modulate power just by using the electrode actions;
• bipolar function

DOUBLE NEUTRAL METHOD
With ATR Med a further evolution is represented by the DOUBLE NEUTRAL PLATE METHOD that allows
obtaining:
• ENERGY BALANCE or rather a symmetric provision of radiofrequencies, very useful whether specific body areas, such as back, shall be treated
• EXPANSION OF THE ENERGIZATION AREA by reducing considerablythe treatment time whether wide body areas shall be covered.
• ENERGIZATION UNIFORMITY allowing to keep even the energy provided to tissues including areas far from the neutralposition.

The main operating performance of ATR Med can be attributed to muscle skeletal traumatic pathologies
even if it includes also the following application fields:

• physiotherapy
• rehabilitation
• pain therapy
• sport medicine
• aesthetic medicine
• dermatology
• phlebology
