VBS Shockwave

The ideal shockwave for equine, mixed and small animal clinical practice

The VBS Direct Shockwave unit provides energy through an electromechanical process as opposed to compressed mechanical energy, enabling it to provide a more comfortable patient experience. The user friendly, touch screen interface includes several recognised treatment protocols for a range of common musculoskeletal conditions. The compact and portable shockwave comes with a robust, hard shell carrier case allowing for ease of transportation and protection in the field or between clinics. There is a simple to use, intuitive operating system with the additional option to save personal protocol set up.

UK Vet Testimonials

"Having used Shockwave for several years on our equine patients, this machine was a significant improvement in size, portability, ease of use and the results are very good."
Chiltern Equine Vets

"...the vets are loving how easily portable and light it is. They have found it easy to use and have managed to have relatively high frequency of “shocks” with cases without any distress."
Blaircourt Equine

"We have recently purchased a new radial shockwave from VBS and Racheal Youngson has helped every step of the way. Nothing is ever too much effort for her, she always goes above and beyond to cater for our needs. Communication and training sessions are always superb and I know Rachael will always be at the end of the phone or email if we needed help! We would definitely recommend VBS. Everyone at the clinic loves the new shockwave, its very light, straightforward to use, and all fits nicely into one box rather than having to carry multiple pieces of equipment. "

What can shockwave therapy treat?

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is an emerging new technology for treating musculoskeletal problems, soft tissue and bone injuries in horses and dogs. ESWT is noninvasive and used to stimulate healing, so that horses and dogs can return to a level of full fitness and useful activity without recurrence of disease. Shockwave stimulates the body’s own repair process by increasing the blood flow to affected areas, which accelerates healing and often results in quicker relief from pain. It also helps heal chronic inflammation, stimulates collagen, which connects and supports tissue, and also breaks up calcium deposits.

Shockwave therapy has been found to be most therapeutically beneficial treatment for injuries at the soft tissue-bone interface. These areas are often difficult to medicate, and unsuitable for surgery. Therefore, the non-invasive and focused attributes of ESWT have proved extremely valuable.

Examples of such injuries are:

  • Proximal suspensory desmitis
  • Collateral ligament injuries
  • Digital Flexor tenosynovitis
  • Calcification of tendons/ligaments
  • Bone spavins
  • Stress Fractures / Non-Unions
  • Navicular Disease
  • Sacro-iliac injuries
  • Joint Osteoarthritis
  • Tendinopathies

Biological Effects:

  • Vasodilation and new vessel growth
  • Stem cell activation
  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Release of growth factors (eNOS, BMP, VEGF etc.)
  • Release of neurotransmitters

Radial Shockwave can be combined effectively with K-Laser to enhance clinical speed and quality of healing.
