Medical Device Business Review reports that device manufacturer, Alpha Orthopaedics' AT3 pain relieving system has achieved the CE mark. The device is designed for relieving pain associated with tendinosis and fasciosis.

They say that by using non-invasive ReleF technology, the device delivers RF energy and by its cooling effect generates temperature that can trigger heat-shock proteins and other mediators of the wound healing response. According to he manufacturer, both are needed to induce the reparatory process which is believed to relieve the pain and enables the damaged structures to return to regain their normal state.

Alpha Orthopaedics claim that the sustem is superior to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which was demonstrated in a side-by-side study over 18 months of follow-up.
