Is the SW5S-ED Shockwave machine pneumatic?

Is it necessary to use castor oil or a conductive gel in order to get the best shock waves? Can anyone explain what those plastic caps are at cover the heads tips on the Shockwave machine handles?

Hi Roger A word of caution: while manufacturers may claim that Radial Presssure Wave (RPW) machines can help in the management of ED due to vascular disorders, this is not necessarily supported by the literature If you look at the systemic reviews and meta-analysis studies ( Clavijo et al;. (2017) J Sexual Med; Man and Li (2017); vLu et al (2016)), these studies all point to the benefit of Low Intensity ESWT using focused or Planar ESWT machines. The Energy Flux densities are low ranging from 0.09 to 0,.25mj/mm2 There was one widely publicised piece of marketing material presented by a RPW manufacturer. This quoted a 'study' the manufacturer had done with a local university which 'showed' the efficacy of using their machine for ED. This 'study' was never published and is obviously open to bias My advice if you are considering offering ESWT for ED would be to work closely with a Urologist to provide a diagnosis. If then ESWT is warranted use a low intensity focused shockwave machine having completed a recognised training course I hope this information is helpful Cliff

Seems to be radial...so pneumatic, cheaper technology.
