Sporting events across the globe have been suspended due to COVID-19 and the Olympic Games in Tokyo have been moved to next year. To shorten the waiting time a little, we report in this issue about two professional sports teams from the hosting country. Read on for an insight into the world of professional sports in Japan as seen through the eyes of three trainers: two from basketball team ALVARK TOKYO and one from football team Júbilo IWATA. All of them are licensed judo therapists, a qualification based on a special Japanese osteopathy tradition known as »hone-tsugi« (»bone-setter«).
NEUROLITH installation: in the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, the »Rudolfinerhaus Privatklinik« in Vienna, Austria, relies on Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS)
Throughout the world, more and more specialised medical centres are using Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) with the NEUROLITH® system for the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. In June 2020, another NEUROLITH® system was installed successfully at the private hospital »Rudolfinerhaus Privatklinik« in Vienna, Austria, where it will be used under the medical direction of Dr Matthias Geisler. On-site training of the hospital’s treatment team was carried out by Dr Henning Lohse-Busch (Rheintalklinik, Bad Krozingen, Germany) who also played a decisive role in the development of TPS®.
The new V-ACTOR »HF« handpiece with extended frequency spectrum – A field report by Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch, FACS
My practice started using the V-ACTOR® handpiece in 2012, adding vibration therapy to the focused and radial shock wave therapies that we offer. Vibration therapy is the final stage that I apply when treating myofascial issues, lymphoedema and cellulite with radial shock waves.
STORZ MEDICAL has received approval for the compact device MASTERPULS® ONE in Japan – one of the biggest growth markets for shock/pressure wave therapy. The radial pressure wave system focuses on the entry-level price segment (orthopaedics/physical therapy) and complements the DUOLITH® SD1 »ultra« and the MASTERPULS® MP100 »ultra«, which have been successful in Japan for years. Its launch will enable STORZ MEDICAL to further expand its leading market position in Japan.
