Success story

The 3-Heights™ PDF Viewer brings new impetus to shock wave technology

Brief portrait of Storz Medical AG

Swiss company STORZ MEDICAL AG was founded in 1987 and is a subsidiary of the Storz Group. The objective pursued by the company's physicists and engineers is to further develop shock wave technology and to implement new device concepts. Technical innovations from STORZ MEDICAL AG set new standards in the fields of orthopedics, rheumatology, cardiology, gastroenterology and ENT.

Customer application requirements

The innovative devices manufactured by STORZ MEDICAL AG are characterized by above-average quality and user-friendliness. Customers of STORZ MEDICAL AG want to see the same degree of safety and quality applied to the handling of electronic user manuals for the devices. This calls for PDF viewing software (PDF Viewer) that goes further than the usual workstation solutions.

Specification requirements stated that the PDF Viewer must be fully integrable in the StorM-Touch solution. This would increase the quality, availability and therefore the user-friendliness of user manuals. The necessity of an isolated viewer application should be omitted to provide a cost-effective, easily implementable solution.

Solution concept

The API version (programming interface) of the 3-Heights™ PDF Viewer enabled full integration of viewer functionality in the StorM-Touch solution. Thus, the viewer is entirely controllable through the StorM-Touch application and is characterized by constant runtime behavior. The necessity of an additional, cost-causing viewer application no longer applies.


  • Users can make direct and flexible use of the manuals as and when they need to thanks to the 3-Heights™ PDF Viewer.
  • The fact that there is no need to open a new program considerably enhances availability and user friendliness.
  • Documents are displayed in high quality and controlled directly via the StorM-Touch application.

Customer opinion

PDF Tools AG provided the best possible solution for viewing PDF documents. Exceptionally high speed, high quality and an attractive cost-benefit ratio are the main characteristics of the integrated 3-Heights™ PDF Viewer.
