ZeroWire®

We would like to introduce the ZeroWire®

Richard Wolf is happy to announce the arrival of ZeroWire® to its Video product line.  ZeroWire® enables the wireless transmission of true 1080p high definition video signals from a primary signal source to a secondary monitor without the need to run cables.  This eliminates the risk of tripping over a cable, allows a faster room set-up and turnaround, and last but not least ensures high definition video transmission.  ZeroWire® can wirelessly send up to 1080p resolution signals within a radius of 30 feet inside a single room.  

 

With a delay of less than 1/60th of a second, there is no observable difference between the transmitter and receiver.

 

ZeroWire® is especially notable for its ease of use.  Once paired, the transmitter and receiver recognize each other after each power up, allowing for a very fast set-up and creating consistency along the chain of video signals.

Endoscopic Dorsal Ramus Rhizotomy - Seeing is Believing!

Short Vertebris Spine Endoscope for Endoscopic Dorsal Ramus Rhizotomy

Endoscopic Dorsal Ramus Rhizotomy is a revolutionary new technique for addressing non-radicular lower back pain. The goal is to cut the small branches of the dorsal ramus nerve that innervate painful facet joints in the lumbar spine - providing lasting pain relief for the patient.

 

The short Vertebris Spine Endoscope permits visualization of the anatomy, including the nerves around the facet joints, while the Bi-Tip Flextrode RF probe, deployed through the working channel of the Spine Endoscope, facilitates the ablation of the painful nerve branches. For the first time, the surgeon can confirm with direct endoscopic visualization that the nerve branches have truly been ablated.

Extracorporeal Shockwave

WellWave - Gentle Therapy for Chronic Pain

The WellWave is the most effective form of shockwave therapy available anywhere. It’s piezoelectric version of shockwave therapy is an extremely cost effective technology for the patient compared with other technologies.

 

Trigger point shock wave therapy (TPST) is used successfully in the treatment of chronic pain in muscles, tendons and in the region of bones.

  

Therapy right on the spot with TPST. Causes of pain are often to be found not only in the local area of the pain itself but in distant trigger points in the corresponding muscle group. Trigger points are thickened, pain-sensitive points within a tense local muscle. They can cause a variety of pains, even well away from their own location. They are not only painful, there is also a tendency for strains, tears or other injuries to occur at these points. 

  

TPST is made easy with the Richard Wolf WellWave. The intensity and pulse frequency of the shock wave can be adapted precisely to the various indications. To allow treatment, the trigger points can be located with the focus point, using the so called bio feedback principal. With the depth of penetration, trigger points can also be treated in deep muscle. This allows maximum efficiency for the treatment.
