Add to that the surprising experience of discovering that many manufacturers 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. Professionals worldwide identify STORZ Medical as the market leader in shockwave and regenerative technologies; they are considered the gold standard.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy, known as radial pressure wave (EPAT) and focused shockwave (ESWT), is an innovative, non-invasive treatment for addressing acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain as well as connective tissue disorders.

Because shockwave treatment is highly effective across multiple medical specialties, it's essential to stay informed by reviewing relevant scientific studies. Here are a few published studies that may pique your interest further.

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 confident to get patent protection.

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

Medical professionals worldwide treat patients with STORZ Medical Shockwave devices to promote tissue repair and regeneration. Medical professionals hail shockwave as a game-changer for patients experiencing musculoskeletal disorders, overuse, soft tissue injuries, pain, inflammation, and more. Explore innovative, evidence-based technologies from STORZ Medical: Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), and Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT).

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) 

The OrthoPulse Ultra Series, also referred to as the D-ACTOR series, are radial pressure wave devices 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.

The most popular models in the OrthoPulse Ultra Series, powered by STORZ Medical, are featured below:

OrthoPulse Ultra 200

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:

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.
