The Spark Wave Therapy has evolved into a simultaneously effective and gentle alternative to conservative treatment methods in the fields of wound care, orthopaedics, traumatology and urology within the last years. The non-invasive therapy has been approved by millions of patients. It is known to be safe and easily tolerable.
Tissue Regeneration Technology
Recent scientific results show that Spark Wave energy re-initiates the stagnating healing process in a subacute and chronic state and initiates a quick and effective healing process in an acute stadium. Spark Waves are special shock waves that are characterized by a brief rise time and high pressure. They influence the cell membrane permeability within the affected tissue and activate a cascade of biochemical regeneration mechanisms at the cellular level.
Numerous clinical studies confirm that Spark Waves induce amongst others the following biological reactions at the cellular level:
- The body´s own production of growth factors (VEGF, eNOS, PCNA etc.)
- The new promotion of blood vessels (angiogenesis & vasculogenesis)
- An improved blood flow and cell proliferation
- The migration of stem cells
In addition, MTS Spark Waves unfold in vitro a bactericidal effect which strongly minimizes the amount of germs and bacteria in the affected tissue. The combination of all mentioned factors stimulates the healing process and ultimately promotes the development of new and healthy tissue – Tissue Regeneration Technology.
Angiogenesis & vasculogenesis
Spark Waves initiate the increased production of pro-angiogenic growth factors that activate the growth of new blood vessels by means of pullulation and separation processes from already existing blood vessels respectively. The growth factor VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) plays an important role in the vasculogenesis by stimulating the production of blood vessels from endothelial progenitor cells. Angiogenesis and vasculogenesis strongly contribute to an improved blood supply of the affected tissue, which helps it to regenerate on a natural way.
