A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11857212B2) discloses an apparatus for generating therapeutic shock waves. The apparatus includes a housing with a chamber filled with liquid, electrodes to create spark gaps, capacitors connected to circuit boards, and a pulse-generation system. The capacitors discharge to the electrodes upon reaching a threshold charge, generating arcs and acoustic shock waves. The pulse-generation system performs a two-stage pulse discharge, vaporizing and ionizing the liquid to create inter-electrode conductive paths, leading to the generation of shock waves.

Furthermore, the patent describes a capacitor-array apparatus for generating therapeutic shock waves. This apparatus includes circuit boards with first and second capacitor sets connected in series and arranged in specific patterns. The circuit boards are coupled to electrodes, and the capacitors receive voltage pulses simultaneously from a pulse generation system. The method of producing compressed acoustic waves involves applying voltage pulses to electrodes and capacitors, leading to the generation of shock waves. The voltage pulses applied to the electrodes range between 500 V and 10,000 V, ensuring the efficient generation of acoustic shock waves for therapeutic purposes.
