SANUWAVE Receives U.S. Patent for Novel Electrode Design to Increase Useful Life of Electrohydraulic Shock Wave Devices

ALPHARETTA, Ga., March 29, 2016, SNWV, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCBB:SNWV), announced today the receipt of U.S. Patent number 9,198,825 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office entitled “Increase Electrode Life in Devices Used for Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)”.  This patent has a patent life to July 2033. The patent has claims related to the special construction of the spark gap electrodes used to generate electrohydraulic shock waves.  These novel electrodes have a larger cylindrical tip portion when compared to their base portion, a central bore and a planar tip surface.  This construction has the advantage to create a larger surface of the electrode tip that translates in slower electrode tip erosion during their use, allowing a longer life for the electrodes when compared to classic electrode designs.  The bore found at the tip of this new electrode also assures a much better heat dissipation, which further decreases electrode erosion and conseq
