Abstract (en)

1. Shock-wave generator for producing an acoustic shock-wave pulse with a focussing apparatus having several lenses (7a, 7b) for the shock-wave pulse, characterized in that the lenses (7a, 7b) in each case have a different bundling characteristic and in that the shock-wave generator is provided with a device onto which the lenses (7a, 7b) are applied in such a way that in each case one lens (7a, 7b) is introduced into the path of the shock-wave pulse and can be exchanged against a different lens (7b, 7a).
