STORZ MEDICAL AG – Combined Shock Wave Therapy

There is no talking about shock waves today without talking about STORZ MEDICAL, too. When Dr h.c. Karl Storz laid the foundations of the KARL STORZ Group back in 1945, it was hard to imagine what an enormous influence the products from this think tank would have not only on endoscopy but also on shock wave therapy. STORZ MEDICAL’s presentation of the first worldwide prototype of a urological shock wave device in 1988 was followed by a series of technological innovations in the field of extracorporeal shock wave therapy. Non-invasive solutions for urgent therapeutic problems consolidated the reputation of STORZ MEDICAL as the leading enterprise in shock wave technology in the world.

The new DUOLITH® SD1 »ultra« stands out because of its technological innovations, reliability and precision down to the last detail. The enlarged energy range of radial shock waves and the operating elements integrated into the handpieces extend the lead in radial and focused shock wave therapies.
