Basic Principle of Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT®™)

Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT®™) is widely used in the temporary relief from minor aches and pain. MyACT describes the use of acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT can lead to increased circulation, range of motion and minor pain relief – key components in the healing process.

For targeted, non invasive minor pain relief

The acoustic waves generated by the PiezoWave2T MyACT converge at a point deep within the soft tissue to produce an intense, extremely short duration compression burst. The focused acoustic compression force is translated to the surrounding tissue like an extremely precise deep tissue massage. The precise targeting of tissue with Acoustic Compression provides clinicians and healthcare providers with a tool to provide temporary minor pain relief and improve circulation.

Why PiezoWave2T and MyACT are Unique

Other Companies provide compression devices for massage treatment that do not rely on sound waves to create the compression. These devices rely on a percussive application to the outer layer of soft tissue with the hope that the resulting pressure will translate through the tissue to the targeted injury. The deeper the targeted structure the higher the impact required to the outer soft tissue layer with diminishing clinical results due to pressure absorption and increased patient discomfort at the point of contact.

PiezoWave2T MyACT sends an array of sound waves effortlessly and without sensation through soft tissue to the desired, controlled depth and at that point the sound focuses to create the compression. This results in a more controlled and effective delivery of energy along with greater patient compliance to the therapy.

MyACT is not Ultrasound

Ultrasound units delivery thousands of pulses per second in order to vibrate soft tissue sufficient to produce a localized increase in soft tissue temperature. Unlike Ultrasound, the PiezoWave2T MyACT produces slow pulses that do not produce a thermal affect. In addition, the PiezoWave2T MyACT’s slow sound pulses produce soft tissue compression and not soft tissue vibration

Through the delivery of mechanical energy, MyACT provides relief from minor aches and pains.

  • MyACT targets tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue
  • PiezoWave2T MyACT delivers the most energy at a depth that you determine without being compromised by tissue absorption
