STORZ MEDICAL has been using shock waves in orthopaedics since the early 1990s. While at first it was only used for pseudarthrosis, the range of indications was later expanded to include tendon attachment disorders, delayed wound healing and myofascial pain syndrome.
The wide range of indications in orthopaedics, physiotherapy and rehabilitation medicine is ideally covered by STORZ MEDICAL with focused and radial shock wave therapy. This is precisely that makes the DUOLITH® SD1 »ultra« combined shock wave device and the radial MASTERPULS® line the most successful ESWT systems on the market today.
EMTT – Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy in Orthopaedics
Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT) is a non-invasive, outpatient treatment solution in which painful areas of the body are treated with high-energy magnetic pulses. What makes EMTT different from other general forms of magnetic field therapy or PEMF is the very high oscillating frequency of the magnetic field (100–300 kHz). The MAGNETOLITH® is the ideal therapy device for the regeneration and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders.
