Swiss Duoclast

Swiss Duoclast

The Swiss DuoClast has been designed for practice communities and hospitals with a large therapeutic range.  Thanks to the modular use of the two devices  is the latest addition to a range of products in orthopaedics generating focused and radial  shockwaves for the treatment of various indications of the musculoskeletal, dermatological & urological systems.

Ballistic Generation

 Compressed air accelerates a projectile which strikes a fixed applicator.The kinetic energy is converted into a shock wave delivered to the target tissue through the skin.These shock waves are conveyed radially for broad treatment areas

Piezoceramic Generation

 High voltage is applied to 1,000 piezoceramic crystals generating pressure waves, which penetrate the skin and travel through the tissue focusing on a cigar-shaped volume.

The compression phase in focused ESWT is usually shorter than in radial ESWT The maximum pressure P+ in focused ESWT is usually higher than in radial ESWT .Both focused and radial ESWT can reach an ED+ of 0.4 mJ/mm2, which has been clinically proven to be sufficient for almost all ESWT indications on the musculoskeletal system and the skin.

Always the right technology at hand for tendinopathies, muscle pain or bone pathologies: shallow with Radial Shock Waves and deep with Focused Shock Waves.
