It All Begins with A Spark

The very first medical application with extracorporeal shock waves was introduced in the field of lithotripsy – A method used to remove kidney stones non-invasively. Today, ESWT is widely applied as the solution to cell regeneration. This significant and important transition proved that there are many more potentials of ESWT waiting to be discovered. As one of the original players of ESWT and innovative successor to the electrohydraulic technology of Dornier HM3 legacy, the very first medical shock wave device, MTS continues to unravel the endless potential of Spark Wave Therapy – The game changer in modern medicine.

Electrohydraulic Shockwave Therapy:
The Future of Modern Medicine

The phenomenon and physical properties of shock waves were first investigated in the 50s. The first true medical application of shockwaves was witnessed in February 1980, when the kidney stones were successfully disintegrated at the Munich University Hospital Grosshadern with extracorporeal shockwaves lithotripsy (ESWL) powered by the first electrohydraulic shock wave lithotripter, invented by the engineers of the famous airplane manufacturer Dornier at the Lake of Constance (Chaussy et al, 1980). In 1983, the first commercial lithotripter, Dornier Lithotripter HM3, became available and it marked the start of the important role of shock wave application in modern medicine.
