Zimmer Z-wave Studies

How ZWave works

The stimulating effect of low-energy, defocused extra corporeal shock waves on the biological processes within the tissues they penetrate has been the focus of much research in recent years. The biological effect of being penetrated by a shock wave is becoming better understood. There are reports of biological responses that lead to the release of various substances (measured immunohisto chemically), such as VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor), eNOS (endothelial nitric oxide synthase) and PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen) (Siems et al. 2005; Wang et al. 2006); also lesions of the cytoskeleton (Moosavi-Nejad 2006), changes in the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and the nuclear membrane. Shock waves also stimulate blood circulation in the area of application and the patient’s metabolism; they also have an enormous antibacterial effect.

Scientific studies have shown that unfocused low-energy shock waves have a positive influence on the collagen structure of the skin and the body’s connective tissues. They improve blood circulation and metabolism of the body’s fat cells. The intense mechanical massage effect leads to a reduction of oedemas (not for use in fresh, highly inflammatory conditions), and to an improved elimination of toxins. It also stimulates the formation of collagen fibers. The skin becomes more elastic and, after just a few sessions, its firmness is not only noticeable but also visible.
