A shock wave is a single acoustic pulse characterized by a rapid rise to a high peak pressure followed by a rapid drop to below ambient pressure. They are delivered to the affected area from the point of contact at the skin surface.

The Swiss DolorClast® Method uses single acoustic pressure waves to treat musculoskeletal and dermatological pathologies. It offers two technologies – propagation of radial and/or focused shock waves — to optimize treatment results.

The Swiss DolorClast® Method can treat heel pain (plantar fasciopathy/ fasciitis), tendinopathies (achilles, patellar), ostheoartritis, non-union fractures & spasticity.

Shockwave Ballistic Generation

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.

Stores patients files with automatic treatment history and offers a Visual Analog Scale solution to track pain reduction throughout the treatment.


Swiss DolorClast® Classic

The Original Radial Shock Wave Device

In a class of its own
The original radial Shock Wave device that set new standards in treatments of tendinopathies and calcifications since 1999. Fast-track treatments thanks to free selection of frequency, air pressure and impulses:

  • First Shock Wave device worldwide being used for the treatment of trigger points in 2001
  • The only Radial Shock Wave device on the market with FDA approval for plantar fasciopathy
  • Plug-and-treat system
  • Variable operating frequency (1-20 Hz)
  • Preset impulse rate
  • Automatic impulse counter
  • Applied-pressure indicator for controlled application
  • Autoclavable parts for more safety

Swiss DolorClast® Evo Blue Handpiece

The Only Constant Energy Shock Waves Hand-Piece On The Market

The new Swiss DolorClast® Evo Blue Handpiece, with over 1 million pulses, delivers constant Energy Flux Density (EFD) output throughout the entire spectrum of frequency which enables to treat 6 times larger areas in the same amount of time with a 36 mm applicator at 4 bar, compared to a 15 mm applicator at 2 bar.

New applicator design based on Finite Element Analysis* – for ideal Shock Wave transmission

High-precision smart-lock piston with patented valve system – for unprecedented energy flux densities at all frequencies.

Improved performance
Latest innovation from the inventor of Radial Shock Wave therapy (RSWT®) – the Original Swiss DolorClast® Method

Easy and faster
Easy handpiece revision by quick replacement of smart-lock piston – much faster, more precise and safer than (self-) assembly of single spare parts


Swiss DolorClast® Power+ Handpiece

The Highest Energy Flux Density

A modified design, an adjusted travel distance, the size of projectile and new applicators account for higher energy flux density. The Power+ handpiece extends the range of applications due to higher energy and greater depth of penetration.


  • Variable energy flux density (0.01-0.55 mJ/mm2)
  • Greater depth of penetration (up to 45 mm)
  • Integrated impulse counter and impulse trigger
  • 36 mm planar applicator for surface treatment
  • Focus applicator for directed shock wave application
  • Easy to use and compatible with all Swiss DolorClast® devices
