Why are STORZ Medical Shockwave Devices Considered the Gold Standard_  (1)

When it comes time to purchase the ‘right’ medical shockwave device, the task can seem overwhelming at first glance. Add to that the overwhelm of discovering that there are a multitude of manufacturers who sell shockwave devices, though the quality varies significantly from one manufacturer to the next.

When investing in a shockwave therapy device, you can trust STORZ Medical as the market leader and a name known for precision and excellence. It’s why discerning medical professionals worldwide identify STORZ MEDICAL as the market leader in shockwave and regenerative technologies.


The History of STORZ Medical 

It all began in 1945 when Dr. Karl Storz founded the KARL STORZ Group in Southern Germany. This innovative organization would influence endoscopy and shockwave therapy in the years ahead.

In 1987 STORZ Medical was founded in Switzerland and became known as the early pioneers of shockwave therapy. A patent received in 1988 serves as the foundation of all of its focused shockwave systems to date. Known for establishing and innovating Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), they were additionally sure to get patent protection.

STORZ Medical today is known globally as the unrivaled market leader in shockwave technology. Their non-invasive solutions are used in a growing number of fields, including urology, cardiology, neurology, aesthetics, dermatology, and orthopedic pain treatment.

Their preeminent research, premium quality devices, and innovative technologies, coupled with their well-earned reputation, make them the world-renowned authorities in the field of shockwave


STORZ Medical Shockwave Devices

STORZ Medical manufactures radial pressure wave and focused shockwave devices and now EMTT devices.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT 

The OrthoPulse Series, also referred to as the D-ACTOR series, are radial pressure wave devices which have been used extensively in orthopedics for over thirty years. Radial pressure waves are able to target shallow yet wide treatment areas. This technology is particularly well suited to treating plantar fasciitis, myofascial pain, and chronic tendinopathies.

Healthcare professionals use EPAT to successfully treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life. It is particularly well suited to the treatment of the following areas:

  • Foot and ankle
  • Lower extremity
  • Upper extremity
  • Back and chest
  • Shoulder
  • Neck
  • Myofascial trigger points

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy  (ESWT)

The DuoLith series includes a range of focused shockwave devices. Compared to radial pressure waves, Focused shockwaves deliver a higher energy density and faster impulse. In this way, Focused shockwaves can target deeper tissues more precisely, enabling practitioners to reach specific areas and providing all of its energy within the targeted tissue. Conditions like localized pain points, chronic tendinopathies, bone stress injuries, non-unions, and deep trigger points are best treated with focused shockwaves.

Radial Pressure Wave and Focused Shockwave are regularly used in the following specialties:

  • Orthopedics
  • Sports Medicine
  • Pain Management & Rehabilitation
  • Podiatry
  • Wound Healing
  • Aesthetic Medicine
  • Urology
  • Neurology
  • Cardiology
  • Vascular
  • Dentistry
  • Veterinary Medicine

Unlike many others out there, STORZ MEDICAL shockwave devices are backed by extensive scientific studies, including Level One studies, which support their efficacy. When only the best will do, look to STORZ Medical with confidence.
