Unfocused/weakly focused pressure pulses (UPP) are generated by an air-gun like mechanism, with a projectile accelerated by pressurized air and impinging on a metal applicator. They were introduced in 1998 for the treatment of orthopedic soft tissue pain. The patient side of the applicator (a circular piston of 6 30 mm diameter) releases single pressure pulses of 2 10 MPa and 4 5 μs duration. Up today, there is no standard for the measurement of UPP sources (UPPS), so data are often reported on… CONTINUE READING
