Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR ADMINISTERING SHOCKWAVE THERAPY
Abstract:
A device for administering shockwave therapy to a bodily location of a human or animal, comprising a solid body (25) providing a treatment surface (10) and an opposite surface engageable by a striker (20), the striker (20) being subject to a resilient bias such as a spring (50) and being movable away from the opposite surface of the body to a withdrawn position by manual action against the action of the bias, whereby when the striker is released from the withdrawn position the action of the bias drives the striker (20) into engagement with the opposite surface of the body so as to generate a pressure wave for transmission to the bodily location.
