In the world of shockwave therapy equipment, “Storz” Medical is truly unrivalled. It’s why Shockwave Canada has partnered exclusively with “Storz” to bring you legendary Swiss design that offers superior versatility with maximal results. Only “Storz” offers hand unit controls so healthcare practitioners can provide the best in “hands-on” care. And it’s all made accessible by offering the most affordable unit in the industry.
Shockwave therapy was initially introduced as a way to break down kidney stones without direct contact. This innovative procedure is in non-invasive and treats numerous conditions. Shockwave was first used to treat kindey stones and then evolved to treat non-healing bones by activating used to promote bone healing by activating osteoblasts. Storz, one of the only companies that is FDA approved, hand makes the machines in Switzerland and is constantly improving their technology. In the past large, loud machines were the gold standard. Today Stortz supplies machines that are portable and much more practitioner friendly combined with updated technology for the optimal patient treatment.
Compressed air accelerates a projectile, which strikes an end piece. The kinetic energy from the collision is converted into a sound wave, which is then propagated through the skin to the target tissue. The depth and radiation of the wave is dependent on the material of the end piece and the frequency setting of the device.
Newly developed hand control, with all main operating elements integrated into the handpiece. This allows for safer treatments on patients as changes can be made to settings without looking away from the patient. Frequency, energy levels and number of shocks applied can be adjusted directly via selector buttons. Only product of its kind on the market.
Enables targeted application of pneumatically generated vibration pulses to the tissue. Microcirculation is improved by compression and decompression, and metabolic waste products and toxins are removed via the blood and lymph system. Elongation of fascial and muscle fibres restores normal muscle tone as muscle shortening and hardening is eliminated.
VACU-ACTOR® vacuum therapy Radial shockwave therapy and V-ACTOR® vibration therapy with the MASTERPULS® MP200 “ultra” are complemented by VACU-ACTOR® vacuum therapy. Unique ergonomic design: all important control elements are integrated into the “FALCON” handpiece display and, thus, facilitate uninterrupted and quick treatment directly at the patient. The shockwave device itself becomes less important.
Shockwave therapy should never be used on the anterior thoracic cavity because it could cause harm to the lungs, treatment posterior is ok because of the thick layer of muscle and tissue. If a person has or has had cancer they should also avoid shockwave treatment because of the regenerating effects. It is unknown how shockwave will affect cancer cells. Pregnant women and people who have pacemakers should also avoid treatment.
Established in 1941, the objective pursued by STORZ physicists and engineers is to continuously improve medical equipment including shockwave technology, to develop new system concepts and to identify new therapy indications in close co-operation with leading medical institutes.
STORZ products have proved their efficacy in urology in millions of cases. For many years, their wide spectrum of possibilities and the unique benefits offered by non-invasive shockwave technology has also been extended to other medical disciplines. With its state-of-the-art technological innovations, STORZ has set the standards in orthopaedics, rehabilitation medicine, aesthetic medicine and veterinary medicine.
Pioneering achievements such as the invention of the electromagnetic cylindrical source, the first application of shockwaves in cardiac revascularization and combined shockwave therapy (focused, planar and radial shockwaves) provide ample proof of the vast performance spectrum of STORZ in the field of shockwave therapy.
