FMD, LLC was founded in 1999. The mission of the company is to develop safe medical devices.

FMD team used ESWL technology and developed and tested on the TWINHEADS® lithotripter, which uses the "Synchronous Twin Pulse Technique", with two sources of energy instead of one and was led by the combination of urologists and biomedical engineers. The Twinheads® technology is based on the discovery that the collapse of cavitation bubbles can be controlled by the timing and direction of additional shock waves. The generation of another shock wave propagates at a certain angle from the original shock wave which increases the treatment effect of shock waves and abolishes or minimize the tissue damage effect outside the focal area.
