How we began:
TMC were established in 1990. All of our Therapeutic equipment designed and manufactured are based on an understanding that it gives a patient relief and ease of treatment. They are user and patient friendly and are cost effective by either owning the equipment or getting a course of treatment administered.
Whilst visiting one of the medical centres in Israel performing Lithotripsy, we saw a rather disturbing kidney stone treatment being carried out by an ESWL machine. A female patient in her late thirties was on the treatment table in an anaesthetised state, Lithotripsy treatment was being carried out, and her skin at the point of the reflector contact was bruised and bleeding. We also saw a rather concerning occurrence, in that even when the patient was in an anaesthetised state, that the body jumped as every shockwave was released, to the point where two attendants were restraining her to keep her in position.
When a patient is exposed to such a conditions of ESWL treatment there is no doubt that there could be damage to the kidney and the patient would bleed heavily post lithotripsy with excessive hematuria. This was nothing short of being the equivalent to a full open surgery except for a cut to the body. We immediately thought that this is not acceptable.....We really have to do something about this, where upon we made it our mission to design and create a painless lithotripsy machine.
It appeared to be relatively easy... all we needed to do was create an ESWL machine that had less initial pressure, but a higher concentration at the point of focus. We created a paraboloid type of reflector with a small focal zone. This had the desired effect, and we were now able to fragment stones in vitro perfectly, but putting it into factual practice was an issue which first we had to do on an animal subject. How hard could that be? Our first priority was to find a subject, possibly a dog with a kidney stone, which actually took us 4 months to find one. We found that with just one treatment that we had managed to achieve complete success. In fact the results were so successful on this one test case, with this ESWL machine that this treatment could be used, for use on humans too. After all legal registrations and certifications were obtained we actually administered the first human treatment in August 1991.
It was also recognised that it is essential as with any equipment, that you constantly look at ways of improving it, as was the case with the ESWL machine and with this in mind we decided that the next piece of equipment would be called the VL-10. Equally it was extremely important that we found a manufacturer who held the same beliefs and ideas that we did and we were extremely lucky in finding just such a Company who were also family owned too!!
All this might have sounded easy but there was a tremendous of effort and desire to succeed on this quest, but by achieving the above was only part of our mission as a Company. The next part was the hardest and that is ensure that the patient can use an ESWL machine in the knowledge that it is painless even to the point that there is no need for sedatives or anaesthetics too. We succeeded in that with the VL-10.
Many other manufacturers have tried to copy what we at TMC we achieved, we care about the people who use this equipment, we want lasting success that is cost effective and also painless. We at TMC feel confident that we have created an ESWL machine in the VL-10 that is all around result driven for the people that matter the most…..you, the users.
Today TMC Europa Ltd. manufacturers many type of therapeutic medical equipment in the field of Urology, Cardiology and Haematology. We have a sales and service network that is one of the best. We are supporting equipment by way of service and upgrades that are more then 23 years old.
