We Participated in a Neuromodulation Workshop

We participated in a Neuromodulation Workshop conducted by PSG Institute of Medical Sciences & Research, Coimbatore on 19th November 2022.

The workshop was attended by more than 50 doctors wherein they participated in hands on training on our MagVenture R30 device demonstrated by Dr. Murlidharan, Professor of Psychiatry, NIMHANS.

MagPro R30:Stimulator designed primarily for clinical use as well as research.

An advanced high-performance TMS magnetic stimulator designed primarily for clinical use as well as research. The MagPro R30 performs repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and runs many complex protocols successively; up to 20,000 pulses in one session.With the add-on Theta Burst option, it is possible to run theta burst stimulation. An add-on 60 pps option and 80 pps option is also available.

INS-IM 2022, a Neuromodulation conference at the Grand Hyatt Mumbai

We participated in INS-IM 2022, a Neuromodulation conference at the Grand Hyatt Mumbai from November 11 to 13, 2022 in association with STORZ MEDICAL AG.

Neurolith is Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS) for the stimulation of brain regions in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The key mechanism induced by TPS is mechanotransduction. It is used to stimulate deep cerebral regions reaching as much as 8 cm into the brain to promote the cognitive abilities of Alzheimer’s sufferers.

More than 400 delegates from 32 different countries participated in this International Neuromodulation Society Interim Meeting. In this 3 day congress Storz launched NeurolithⓇ, a Transcranial Pulse Stimulation device (TPS®) used to stimulate deep cerebral regions into the brain to promote the cognitive abilities of Alzheimer’s sufferers.

Interview with Physiotherapist Ove Indergaard about the benefits of shock wave therapy




Indergaard Physiotherapist is a specialist musculoskeletal clinic in Leeds. Owner and clinical director Ove Indergaard has been using shock wave therapy for more than 8 years. He now teaches shock wave both in the UK and internationally.

How did you start your journey with shock wave?

I started looking into shock wave as I was trying to solve a problem in the clinic. A proportion of my clients with stubborn tendinopathies who were struggling to get better and despite rehab and progressive loading were still struggling with pain. During my research I came across shock wave therapy, and after attending a course I purchased my first shock wave machine which was a radial device.

How I dealt with these problematic conditions then changed forever. I now have both focused and radial shock wave devices from STORZ MEDICAL in my clinic.

What percentage of you patients have shock wave?

In general, as I have been doing this for several years people now come to see me specifically for shock wave therapy. I would say around 50% of my patients are requesting the treatment. I have found that awareness of the technology and its potential to help with pain and mobility has increased massively. Shock wave’s reputation is certainly growing amongst the general public.

What conditions do you see the most of?

Well, tendinopathies are a large part of my clinical practice, from the standard Achilles and plantar fasciitis, to Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome, lateral epicondylitis and calcific tendonitis in the shoulder. But we have great success with chronic myofascial dysfunctions too.

What conditions do you think responds the best to shock wave therapy?

The conditions it has the greatest impact on are longstanding conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles and GTPS. Combined with a good rehab program consisting of activity modification, appropriate loading, and gradual progression these do very well, and the patients are happy.

How has shock wave advanced your practice?

Shock wave therapy has allowed me to increase my success rate with conditions which sometimes struggle to get better. Since I started with shock wave therapy, I have also started using ultrasound scanning to evaluate some of the tendons that come into the clinic, and together I have improved my clinical reasoning, and can direct the patient better in their journey to becoming pain free and back to full function.

As a well-respected educator on shock wave therapy, where do you see the future of the technology?

Shock wave therapy is definitely here to stay for musculoskeletal conditions. We will probably see an increase in the number of indications that is treated with shock wave and the protocols getting better and better. The areas that are exciting for the technology is how shock waves are used in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and even cardiac indications, these currently in its infancy but shows great promise.
