Review MEDICA 2017

MASTERPULS® ONE: Surprisingly compact
On the first day of MEDICA, STORZ MEDICAL celebrated the world premiere of the MASTERPULS® ONE, a radial shock wave system suited especially for medical practices that want to take a first step into the world of shock wave therapy. During the whole trade fair, the device was one of the visitor highlights at the STORZ MEDICAL stand in hall 10. The stand-out features of the new MASTERPULS® ONE are its extraordinary compact dimensions, the user-friendly design as well as the easy handling of the device and the handpiece, which will be available in different colours. According to requirements, the device can be used in the medical practice or for mobile tasks/home visits, which ensures efficiency. The MASTERPULS® ONE is an ideal addition for established shock wave practices and a cost-effective solution for new users of radial shock wave therapy. It will be launched in May 2018.


Outstanding modularity: MODULITH® SLK »intelect«
In early 2017, the new MODULITH® SLK »intelect« won the world-renowned iF DESIGN AWARD. During MEDICA, the stand visitors were not only impressed by the design and technology of the new lithotripter, but especially by its versatility. Due to its form and functionality, it can be customised to various demands. In addition, the adaptation to urological workstations or the combination with C-arcs is very simple. Although the MODULITH® SLK »intelect« is mainly used in urology/lithotripsy, it is also suited for interdisciplinary use – for example in orthopaedics for the treatment of pseudarthroses. When not used, the lithotripter can be folded into a space saving position for storage and transport.


STORZ MEDICAL »Scientific Shock Wave Award«
The »Scientific Shock Wave Award« was created by STORZ MEDICAL to honour outstanding medical achievements and research in the field of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT). This year’s award ceremony took place on the first day of MEDICA. The award was given to the two orthopaedists Dr Stephan Swart and Dr Carlo Di Maio from Neukirchen-Vluyn/Germany. The jury explained their decision by saying that »both physicians have contributed significantly to the further development of shock wave therapy and to a better patient care«.
