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.
