Curative Sound launches its new product, CS-Pro VET

The CS-Pro VET is a new extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) device designed for veterinary medicine by Curative Sound, a medical technology company specializing in precise, high-pressure acoustic shock wave products. The CS-Pro VET was recently debuted at the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Symposium in Naples, Florida, in April 2024 and according to the company, received positive interest in the device.1

The CS-Pro VET is the world’s first ultra-portable focused extracorporeal shockwave therapy (f-ESWT) device and will therefore help innovate the current treatment options for equine and companion animal patients. According to Curative Sound, the CS-Pro VET can be used for several conditions including orthopedic injuries or diseases and chronic pain.

"We are excited to introduce the CS-Pro VET to the veterinary community," said Jeff McAteer, founder at Curative Sound, in a news release.1 "Our ultimate goal is to bring this transformational therapy to as many patients as possible. With the launch of the CS-Pro VET, f-ESWT is now more accessible than ever. With its compact design, powerful performance, and incredible longevity, we believe the CS-Pro VET will empower veterinarians to deliver superior care to their patients, ultimately improving outcomes and enhancing quality of life.”

In vitro and laboratory animal studies have demonstrated potential benefits to articular cartilage from ESWT. Additionally, clinical symptoms of osteoarthritis (OA) in humans have reportedly improved following ESWT treatment.2,3 However, data on the effectiveness of ESWT in dogs with OA are inconsistent.2,4

Some key features of the CS-Pro VET include the following1:

  • The device weighs 14 ounces and is battery powered, making it easily portable around the clinic or from place to place.
  • The CS-Pro VET has focal depths of 2 mm, 5 mm, 10mm, 20 mm, and 30 mm and pressure up to 80 MPa.
  • The interface can be controlled and operated with touch screen capabilities.
  • The CS-Pro VET can produce up to 100,000 pulses on a single battery charge and is guaranteed to deliver more than 5,000,000 pulses over its lifetime.

Training videos of the CS-Pro Vet device and product protocols for canines and equines can be found on the Curative Sound website.
