STORZ MEDICAL is counting on Fascial Therapy

Fasciae are connective tissue structures that pervade the entire body. In the 1950s, the American biochemist Ida Rolf examined fasciae for the first time. She believed that the connective tissue or fasciae played a greater role in muscle aches than muscles did. This resulted in rolfing, a manual body therapy that affects the network of fasciae in the human body. For a long time, it was unclear what really had an effect on the connective tissue and the role that it actually played. Today, we know that fasciae cover all our muscles as well as all our organs. Muscles are only able to transfer their complete force through them. Fasciae contain above all nerve endings, receptors and lymphatic fluids and thereby cover our bodies like a network. Fasciae are flexible and can change.

SPINE-ACTOR® Shock Transmitters*: Optimally Treat Painful Dysfunction of the Spinal Musculature

Currently, innovations in radial shock wave technology are increasingly found in the area of shock transmitters. In order to further optimize the treatment of individual indications and body regions, shock transmitters are developed which are specially formed for the needs they serve. In addition to the newly developed fasciae shock transmitters specialized shock transmitters for the radial shock wave handpiece for treating painful dysfunction on the entire spinal column are now being presented for the first time: the so-called SPINE-ACTOR® shock transmitters. They allow muscular imbalances and pain conditions to be treated equally well as trigger points.

History of Shock Wave Therapy: Pseudarthroses

Disorders called pseudarthroses can occur in rare cases when bone fractures heal. Certain bones are more frequently affected than others, such as the long bones (lower leg, upper leg, upper arm and ulna with radius) or the scaphoid bone. Conventional treatment occurs via surgical intervention. Today, however, shock wave therapy is being used more and more frequently as an alternative, to great success; a success story which began in the early 1990's.

Successfully Treating Football Injuries with Shock Waves

250 million people of every age play football all over the world – this means that people are destined to get injured. Since football is a contact sport and most people do not use shin pads or other protection, a wide range of different injuries are possible. During a game, players constantly change movements and are continually stopping and running. This places great strain on the entire locomotor system and its connected musculoskeletal system. The weather and the state of the pitch can also cause injuries.

Good service makes for good systems!

Right from the very beginning, STORZ MEDICAL has placed great emphasis on developing high-quality products and solutions that not only provide excellent ergonomic design and superior therapeutic outcome but also deliver exceptional treatment success rates even under adverse ambient conditions. To meet this challenge on a long-term basis, we continually evaluate the installation and application reports submitted by our engineers to figure out if and how we can improve our systems in terms of ease of servicing and installation, reliability of components, transport safety and robustness. The information gathered from this analysis is used both in the development of new systems and in the service and maintenance of existing products operated by our customers. All these efforts translate into an exceptional service life of STORZ MEDICAL systems, which – in many cases – may reach over twenty years with unlimited performance level or localization precision.

The inexorable advance of shock wave technology

The treatment modalities available for urolithiasis have radically changed over the last 35 years. Innovations from all over the world have revolutionized the treatment options in stone management. Extensive open surgery with a significant mortality rate has been replaced almost entirely by minimally invasive or non-invasive procedures for the treatment of stones of any type, size or location. Similarly to other great developments in history, the road to modern stone management has been long and rocky.

To stay ahead, you have to master the technology

Medical history was made when the first patient with kidney stones was treated successfully with shock waves in February 1980. It was in 1989 when STORZ MEDICAL revolutionized shock wave lithotripsy with its special design of a new cylindrical coil to generate shock waves with most favourable field distribution and widest energy range. For the first time, this technique allowed extremely large apertures and extraordinary focal depth. Another striking feature of the cylindrical coil was the central opening that was designed to enable inline localization. This inline configuration was a technological masterpiece.

Switzerland’s Positive Image Abroad

In view of the constantly growing global competition it is no longer enough for enterprises to distinguish their products by quality and equipment features alone. In order to ensure that a product does not go unnoticed in the marketplace, it is necessary to create an individual image for this product and even for the corresponding enterprise. A positive image increases the anticipation of making a unique experience with a product.

The aim was to avoid an indoor climate often found in modern low energy buildings with forced ventilation and systems that keep temperatures at a constant level independent of the season: There employees perceive temperature, humidity and air exchange as unnatural and get a feeling of powerlessness.

Shock wave therapy for veterinarians – an overview

Evolution

The first successful disintegration of kidney stones was on February 8th 1980 in Munich, Bavaria. At that time the milestone for one of the most successful non-invasive therapies was set. In the mid-1990s the extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) was first used for orthopaedic indications. For this purpose, modified urological lithotripters were employed, which, however, did not become established in medical practice because of their shape, size and high investment costs. 1999 marked the beginning of the successful »career« of radial shock waves in orthopaedic pain therapy. Compact and conveniently priced shock wave systems became available for orthopaedic treatments for the first time. The treatments for horses started at the same time.

The history of mobile shock wave lithotripsy

The history of mobile shock wave lithotripsy

Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) has been one of the most innovative therapy procedures in urology over the last decades. During the first few years, however, small hospitals could not afford to purchase a lithotripter owing to its high cost. This explains why ever since the pioneering days of SWL there has been a demand for mobile lithotripsy to make this revolutionary technology more easily available also in remote regions.

Focus on kidney stones with MODULITH SLX-F2

Focus on kidney stones with MODULITH SLX-F2

Kidney stones are a disease of civilisation that affects almost 5% of the population in the course of their lives. The annual incidence rate for renal calculi in Germany, currently at almost 1.5%, is on an upward trend and the condition is frequently associated with significant pain. About 50% of patients experience relapse within a period of 10 years if the stone formation remains untreated. These figures clearly reflect the importance of modern stone management.

(Picture left: Dr med Peter Sprenk, consultant urologist at the Urological Centre and affiliated doctor at Brilon Community Hospital, Franz Haselhorst, urology specialist nurse, Dr med Heinz Grosse-Vollmer, consultant urologist at the Urological Centre and affiliated doctor at Brilon Community Hospital (from left to right).

Physiotherapy on the paddock and in equestrian sport stables: shock waves get equine athletes into shape for top performance

Physiotherapy on the paddock and in equestrian sport stables: shock waves get equine athletes into shape for top performance

An increasing number of veterinarians are incorporating radial shock wave therapy into their regular practice with great success.

In its December 2011 issue, the renowned »Pferdesport Journal« reported about Christel Auer, a human physiotherapist and FN-approved equine physiotherapist who specialises on ESWT-based therapy options to maintain the structural and functional balance of equine athletes. Auer uses the MASTERPULS® MP100 VET system from STORZ MEDICAL for radial shock wave application (R-SW) and has been able to achieve high success rates with this approach.

(Picture left: Radial shock wave therapy is well-tolerated because it uses no painful high-energy shock waves. Horses become accustomed to it rather quickly. Picture right: Radial shock wave therapy can be performed on an outpatient basis. Therapy systems are flexible and ideal for mobile use.)
