Veterinary Shockwave Therapy Machines

Your guide to Storz Medical’s Specialist Veterinary Shockwave Range.

A non-invasive and highly effective treatment, veterinary shockwave therapy employs the power of acoustic waves to stimulate natural healing processes within an animal’s body.

Originally derived from human medicine, shockwave therapy has proven its efficacy across a broad range of veterinary applications since the early 1990s. It’s utilised in the treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions, from tendinopathies to bone healing, enhancing the health and performance of animals. It’s particularly beneficial for equine athletes, improving recovery times and aiding in the management of both acute and chronic conditions.

With veterinary shockwave therapy, the focus is on healing, not just managing. Its ability to stimulate the body’s innate restorative processes makes it a powerful tool in veterinary medicine. It is equally applicable to small and large animals, making it an exceptionally versatile treatment approach.

How can shockwave therapy be used in a veterinary context?

Shockwave therapy has wide applications in veterinary medicine due to its non-invasive nature and versatility. It is effective in treating orthopedic conditions like tendinopathies, fractures, and osteoarthritis by promoting the body’s natural healing. It aids in wound management and chronic pain relief, disrupting pain signals and stimulating healing.

Shockwave therapy also facilitates rehabilitation post-injury or surgery, improving mobility and reducing muscle atrophy. Additionally, it is employed in equine medicine for performance enhancement and injury prevention. However, it should be administered by trained veterinary professionals for safe and effective use.

Radial Vs Focused Shockwave Therapy

Storz Medical offers two state-of-the-art shockwave devices explicitly designed for the veterinary market: the MP100 VET and the Duolith SD1 T-TOP VET. Each of these devices harnesses a distinct type of shockwave therapy; the MP100 utilizes radial shockwave therapy, while the T-TOP embraces a focused shockwave approach.

Radial and focused shockwaves differ fundamentally in their mechanics and applications. Radial shockwaves, here employed by the MP100 VET, are pneumatically generated and spread out in a larger, divergent area from the point of application. They are particularly effective for treating superficial areas and stimulating biological responses like pain reduction and increased blood flow.

On the other hand, focused shockwaves, as deployed by the Duolith SD1 T-TOP VET, are produced electromagnetically. They concentrate at a specific point within the body, allowing for treatment of deeper tissues. This focused approach is particularly beneficial for precision targeting and treatment of specific musculoskeletal conditions. Overall, the choice between radial and focused shockwaves depends largely on the specific therapeutic needs and goals.

  • Radial shockwave therapy

  • Affordable and beginner-friendly

  • Completely controllable through the handpiece

Designed specifically for veterinary use, the MP100 VET radial shockwave therapy device has similar specifications to the MP100 ULTRA, but with a 1.5m longer cable for the handpiece, allowing for greater treatable distance from the machine, which is especially useful when treating a large animal.

The optional touchscreen also comes pre-loaded with veterinary-only guides and parameters.

  • Focused shockwave therapy

  • Deep maximum treatment depth (up to 125mm)

  • Wide range of treatable conditions

The DUOLITH SD1 T-TOP VET ULTRA is a highly versatile focused shockwave device that can be used to treat a wide range of conditions in animals. The device runs on the same technical hardware as the standard T-TOP, but with a longer handpiece lead to allow for moving around larger animals and veterinary-specific protocols programmed into the tablet.

Education & Support

With all devices clinicians are offered free training at our Starter level CPD courses. Although the courses are not vet specific, they cover the fundamentals and research behind shockwave.

You can choose to attend as many as you like within your first year (subject to availability) and you also have access to a to hour skype session with one of Venn Healthcare’s trainers as well as an abundance of online webinars and other resources. One to one training can also be arranged, prices on request.

Advanced courses are available for more experienced practitioners if you wish to extend your knowledge further.
