Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment
The Storz Duolith® is the newest EPAT® technology to receive FDA approval. The Running Institute is proudly one of the first clinics to implement this treatment in the nation.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT®) (‘extracorporeal’ meaning ‘outside the body’) is a fast, safe and effective non-invasive treatment option that reduces the recovery period and eliminates the risks associated with traditional surgery.
This non-invasive (no incision) treatment involves the delivery of our unique acoustic pressure waves to the effected areas of the body which stimulates the body’s own natural repair mechanisms and fast-tracks the healing process.
EPAT® is an innovative step forward in non-invasive technology. Precisely controlled and released via a hand piece applicator, the unique sets of acoustic pressure waves transmit from the point of contact at the skin surface to the affected area. The pressure wave energy is propagated through a radial expansion, to the affected soft tissue.
