Title
(EN) NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT OF FASCIA
(FR) TRAITEMENT NON INVASIF DU FASCIA
Abstract
(EN)
Various methods and devices for minimally invasive treatment and prevention of conditions of the fascia are provided. In one aspect, a method includes providing an acoustic wave source effective to deliver a focused acoustic wave to a target site within a patient's body, and focusing an acoustic wave through a patient's skin such that at least one location in the patient's fascia is fenestrated in a desired pattern.
(FR)
L’invention a pour objet divers procédés et dispositifs pour le traitement minimalement invasif et la prévention de certains états du fascia. Selon un aspect de l’invention, le procédé comprend l’utilisation d’une source d’ondes acoustiques pour appliquer une onde acoustique focalisée à un site-cible de l’organisme du patient et la focalisation d’une onde acoustique à travers la peau du patient de manière à fenêtrer au moins un emplacement du fascia du patient selon un motif voulu.
