The Innovative & Non-invasive Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)

The Most Advanced & Innovative Podiatry Care In Bethesda, MD & Springfield, VA

 

 

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is the most advanced non-invasive technology platform utilizing acoustic energy based on unique sets of acoustic pressure waves designed for a broad range of podiatric and pain management uses and applications.

Patients, like you, who suffer from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain now have access to innovative, non-invasive treatments. CuraMedix products and procedures offered in our Bethesda podiatry office and our Springfield podiatry office are a modern and proven treatment solution.
 
As an alternative to traditional treatment methods in podiatry including surgery, EPAT improves the regenerative potential, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse or weakness.

When performed by a qualified healthcare professional, EPAT treats the root cause of your pain or injury, improves blood flow, thus improving your mobility and quality of life with minimal risks or side effects.

What is EPAT?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.

This non-invasive office based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

What are the expected results?

The beneficial effects of EPAT are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.

Is it safe?

Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.

When performed by a qualified caregiver, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) has virtually no risks or side effects.

What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?

Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, 3-5 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.

How is the treatment performed?

Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT pressure waves are released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular motion.

Why consider Non-Invasive EPAT?

EPAT has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. EPAT performed in our podiatry offices does not require anesthesia and requires a minimal amount of time. Patients can also bear weight (i.e. walk) immediately and can return to work or normal activities within 24-48 hours and can resume strenuous activities after 4 weeks.
