Veterinary Medicine

After having proved its effectiveness in human medicine over decades, shockwave therapy has made its way into veterinary medicine.

Shock wave systems developed by STORZ MEDICAL for veterinary applications, among which the DUOLITH® SD1 T-TOP VET »F-SW ultra« and the highly mobile MASTERPULS® MP100 VET »ultra«, offer a variety of convincing benefits such as maximum mobility, low capital expenditure and maintenance costs, excellent performance and vast spectrum of applications and, hence, guaranteed therapy success.

How does shockwave therapy heal animals, pets and horses?

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) was first used for the treatment of orthopaedic disorders in the mid-1990s. Since then, it has become a standard procedure in pain therapy in humans, horses and small animals. Shock wave systems available in the market today use radial pressure waves or focused shock waves. Focused shock waves are ideal for the treatment of deep target areas, whereas pneumatically generated radial pressure waves are used for the treatment of superficial disorders.

What are the effects of shock wave therapy?

Shock waves have been demonstrated to produce antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Additionally, growth factors have been found to increase in blood vessels, bones and connective tissue. As well as instant analgesic effects observed during the therapy, shock waves primarily have a long-term influence. 

Generally speaking, it can be said that the biological effects induced by shock waves produce a time-shifted and sustained response inside the body. However, pain tolerance differs between horses and small animals, and they respond differently to shock wave therapy. As a consequence, accurate diagnostic examination and differential diagnosis are fundamental pillars of successful treatment.

Masterpuls 100 Ultra Vet

The MASTERPULS® MP100 VET »ultra« radial pressure wave system offers a range of benefits: compact size, excellent reliability, low servicing costs and an extremely silent built-in »Air Power« drive.

Plus unique ergonomic features: All essential controls (buttons and display) are located on the handpiece to ensure uninterrupted and fast handling and application without having to move away from the patient. The extra-long handpiece cable means that the system as such remains in the background. Treatment parameters developed by experienced therapists for all ESWT indications can be conveniently selected using the handpiece buttons. Alternatively, however, the system can be controlled via an optional touch screen.

DUOLITH SD1 T-TOP VET

Veterinarians can treat both near the surface of the skin and deeper lying issues with a large focal area and high energy range. The patented STORZ® cylindrical electromagnetic technology quietly generates the focused waves which offers a more comfortable treatment that is well tolerated by animals. The Storz Duolith Ultra Vet has a powerful energy range, providing reliable therapy and treatment for areas requiring deep penetration.

This also minimizes treatment times and meaning less operator fatigue and also less distress for the animal, plus, via the inbuilt touchscreen, treatments can be easily repeated meaning consistency of approach when targeting problem areas over a number of treatments. The Duolith Ultra Vet T-TOP is lightweight and compact design with a quiet built-in compressor that reduces animal distress.

Reliable, powerful, with long lasting applicators many vets are finding a Storz shockwave system has become an invaluable addition to their practice.
