Innovation and experience
MODULITH® SLK is based on a revolutionary new design: it features
a medium-sized shock wave source that is mounted to a flexible, easy-to-move
articulated arm and offers a wide energy range for all indications of shock
its exceptional flexibility, the MODULITH® SLK is also ideal for
interdisciplinary use. Shock wave therapy spans a wide spectrum of
applications, from urology and orthopaedics up to stone disintegration in
gastroenterology and otorhinolaryngology.
system components can be chosen from a variety of brands and models
according to specific hospital requirements. Since individual components can
also be used independently, the MODULITH® SLK is an investment
that provides rapid pay-off even if the number of ESWL treatments performed
is relatively low.

medium-sized shock wave source is mounted to a flexible therapy arm and
enables easy and intuitive positioning. The therapy head can be adjusted
directly in treatment position according to the patient's specific anatomy.
· Flexible and efficient
· Large energy range for all indications
· High penetration depth
· Large coupling surface for almost painless therapy
· In-line ultrasound option by design
patented cylindrical source, STORZ MEDICAL has developed a proprietary shock
wave generator for exclusive use in all STORZ MEDICAL shock wave devices.
wave source offers an energy range hitherto unequalled in the world of shock
wave technology. It is thus possible to select exactly the right energy
level for every indication – from pain therapy in orthopaedics up to the
treatment of urinary stones or pseudarthrosis in surgery.
penetration depth of between 0 and 150 mm, the MODULITH® SLK is
well prepared to tackle any challenge in daily clinical practice.
STORZ MEDICAL cylindrical source is designed to enable in-line localization.
It features a central opening, which is ideal for the installation of an
in-line ultrasound transducer.

The urological workstation
Innovation and experience
stone therapy is no longer an isolated discipline in medicine. Today, it
embraces a wide spectrum of minimally invasive and extracorporeal
MODULITH® SLX-F2 is the perfect solution for multi-mode stone
therapy. It is the result of over 20 years of experience in the design of
lithotripters and of millions of cases of successful stone fragmentation,
but it is much more than that: it is the core component of a fully
integrated stone therapy system with a wide spectrum of general
endourological and diagnostic features.
· Highly effective extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy
combined with state-of-the-art endourology – the perfect solution for the
entire spectrum of minimally invasive stone therapies.
· Innovative StorM-Touch control platform – centralized control
of all system functions for maximum ease of use.
· Stone therapy and X-ray with a single system.
· STORZ MEDICAL cylindrical source for lithotripsy treatments
with the most advanced technology.
· Modular design – solutions tailored to specific requirements.
software options to round off the urological workstation.
MEDICAL has implemented a new pioneering control concept which enables
central control of the most diverse system components. All devices in the
network can be easily controlled from a central touch screen, irrespective
of whether stone therapy, contrast medium imaging or percutaneous procedures
StorM-Touch control platform
StorM-Touch central control platform for urological workstations is based on
the OR1 fully integrated operating room concept successfully launched by
KARL STORZ GmbH & Co. KG. All networked devices are linked with each other
through the Storz Communication Bus (SCB) and can be controlled centrally.
StorM-Touch is complemented by a variety of useful options:
automatic stone positioning system facilitates and accelerates shock wave
all relevant treatment parameters, patient information and X-ray images can
be stored in a database for later evaluation.
for long-term archiving in a PACS system.
Shock wave source
Unsurpassed shock wave source
therapy source is the core component of any lithotripter. It not only
determines the stone disintegration efficiency but also the localization
systems that can be integrated into the lithotripter.
MEDICAL developed a proprietary shockwave technology which is exclusively
implemented in all its shock wave devices. The patented cylinder source
provides unsurpassed fragmentation efficiency with low side effects and an
extraordinary focal depth of 165 mm.
focus depth – A new world record!
been a general trend of increasing obesity in many parts of the world. This
alarming development inevitably means that the weight limits of medical
devices need to be increased and that shock wave sources with higher
penetration depths are required.
MODULITH® SLX-F2 has an exceptionally high weight limit of 225 kg
and can be equipped with an optional therapy source with a hitherto
unparalleled penetration depth of up to 180 mm. These features enable
reliable fragmentation of deep stones even in extremely obese patients and
under difficult conditions.
