3 Physical Effects of Acoustic Pressure Waves- EPAT ® Acoustic pressure waves offer a non-invasive treatment solution to long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies. Local treatment in the affected area will support and reset the healing pattern. Today there are several working hypothesis for the physical effects of acoustic pressure waves: Pain reduction: The patient experiences a reduction of pain, explained by the Gate Control Theory. Intensive pulses from the transmitter into the tissues create a strong nociceptor activation of the A-β fibers, which affect interneurons that inhibit the transmission of the pain signals. Increased metabolism: Acoustic pressure waves influence the tissues on a cellular level. The chemical environment of the cells is affected by free radicals promoting the release of pain and inflammatory inhibiting substances. Revascularization: Repeated acoustic pressure waves to the affected area create a revascularization effect, with the new blood flow in the area promoting tissue healing and regeneration. Reduced muscle tone: The vicious circle, as well as the strong pathological association between pain and muscle tone, will be broken and lead to restoring a normalized muscular tone.

4 How Non-Invasive EPAT ® Procedures Work Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is proprietary technology based on several unique sets of acoustic pressure waves that activate biologic and angiogenic responses including new vascularization and microcirculatory improvement, helping to restore the bodys normal healing processes and tissue regeneration.

6 Fields Of Application & Relative Energy Levels Rompe: Extrakorporale Stosswellentherapie

7 All About The Right Energy Levels Stimulation of microcirculation (blood, lymph) and metabolism (nitrous oxide, vasodilation, reduction of oxidative stress) Mechanotransduction – cell matrix stimulation Increase of cell wall permeability (Cell metabolism) Release of substance P Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect Stimulation of growth factors (neogenesis of vessels, bone, collagen) Stimulation of stem cells (cell proliferation, transport and differentiation, skin rejuvenation) Analgesia effect (inhibition of nociceptive fibres – gate mechanism, endorfines and serotonine release, acceleration of substance P washout)

8 Reduces/ Eliminates Pain o Effect on nociceptors: C-fibres (slow) inhibited by A-Delta-fibres (fast) o Analgesic Effect Increases Circulation and Metabolism Stimulates Neovascularization Stimulates Tissue & Bone Growth o Tissue engineering (Mense) Biological mechano-transduction o Cell Proliferation (Neuland) Dissolves Calcium Deposits Reduces muscle tension Treats a Variety of Diseases Antibacterial effects Effects of EPAT ®

11 Clinical Benefits Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT ® ) accelerates healing while improving clinical outcomes non-invasively with all the benefits of traditional treatment methods including invasive procedures and without the risks. EPAT ® Treatment Systems are scientifically proven, versatile and can be used for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions for faster recovery times and easier more complete healing.

12 Clinical Benefits Cont. EPAT® benefits include: Quicker Recovery – Since a non-invasive procedure requires no incisions, no scaring, your body typically heals much faster. No Downtime – No restrictions on normal use. Non-invasive procedures help get you back to your active life immediately. No scarring – No incisions means no scaring or fibrotic tissue build-up Less pain – Because these procedures are non-invasive, there is typically less pain involved.
