What is shockwave therapy with Storz equipment?
One of the most advanced pieces of equipment in the physiotherapy room of the Centrokinetic clinic is the Storz DUOLITH SD1 T-TOP, dedicated to shock wave therapy (ESWT). This model is part of the new generation of shockwave therapy, marked by optimal ergonomics and high maneuverability. The special flexibility of the handpiece cable supports a tireless treatment and, therefore, an easier treatment always directly to the patient - an important factor in daily work.

What is Storz equipment?
DUOLITH SD1 T-TOP has a handpiece with SEPIA focus and a 10 ”touch screen. The SEPIA handpiece allows the treatment with shock waves focused easily and efficiently. All important control elements have been integrated into the handpiece. The frequency and energy level can be adjusted directly to the handpiece. Pre-set treatment parameters save time and ensure undisturbed operation.
The DUOLITH SD1 T-TOP device has uses in:
- Orthopedics and recovery medicine. STORZ MEDICAL shock wave systems have been used for orthopedic applications since 1992. The spectrum of indications in orthopedic ESWT, initially limited to a pseudarthrosis, was later expanded to include insertional tendinopathy, delayed wound healing, and myofascial pain syndrome. STORZ MEDICAL offers focused, flat, and radial shock wave systems to cover the wide variety of indications in orthopedic therapy and rehabilitation medicine and makes the DUOLITH SD1 combined shock wave therapy system and the MASTERPULS radial system the most successful ESWT systems in the world.
- Urology. DUOLITH SD1 is effectively applied to treat erectile dysfunction of vascular origin, Induratio Penis Plastica (IPP), and chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). Scientific studies have proven the success of shockwave treatments in these conditions. The efficiency of this modern shock wave equipment is determined by the range of individually selectable, dynamic, and powerful energy and by the therapeutic depth of focus that can be chosen. Deep areas can be easily treated. Its large focusing area makes it easy to access these areas with a high degree of accuracy. These technical characteristics also demonstrate the superiority of the treatment compared to other ESWT devices. Due to the depth of focus, the shock waves should be applied only on one side of the penis.
- Medical aesthetics. Acoustic wave therapy (AWT) is an innovative procedure for the treatment of cellulite. The procedure has long been applied in orthopedic pain therapy. It was noticed that the shock waves also led to a smoothing of the skin in the treated areas. Shock wave treatment has been particularly effective in combination with cryolipolysis because short, strong impulses can cause more intense tissue weakening than is possible through the use of traditional massage techniques and is also commonly perceived by patients. as being more pleasant.
In 2004, STORZ MEDICAL was the first company to successfully change the physical properties of shock waves to allow their efficient use as pulsating acoustic waves in anti-cellulite therapy and body shaping. Numerous scientific research projects and long-term observational studies have confirmed the long-term effect of this new acoustic wave therapy (AWT). With the development of its innovative series of AWT systems - CELLACTOR SC1 ultra and D-ACTOR 200, STORZ MEDICAL has set new standards in aesthetic and anti-aging medicine.
