Question for David L

Posted by Duane E on 5/19/00 at 02:16 (020575)

You mentioned the 'North American ESWT Society' in your post on May 17, 2000. Do you have their web address?

The NA ESWT Society was registered in British Columbia in December of
1999. It is a non profit organization whose purpose is to improve education of those who operate ESWT devices. Presently it provides certification for operators of the Siemens Sonocur ESWT System after they have met the necessary educational requirements. These requirements include a course of study from approved training manuals, 'hands on' instructor applications training, and the passing of an examination. At this time it offers certification only for operators of the Siemens Sonocur System.
All of the technicians/ therapists at the Sonorex Therapy Centers have undergone this training and certification. The Society was formed by owners and associates of Sonorex, Inc. to enhance and standardize Sonocur applications training at Sonorex Centers. All of the treatment technicians at our sites have undergone this training and certification.
The Society has its headquarters in Vancouver, B.C. It presently does not have a web site, but this is anticipated in the future. The Society plans to emphaize continuing education of its member technicians/therapists and to disseminate information about new or enhanced ESWT treatment techniques as they develop around the world.
