Next level pain management

In memoriam
Prof. em. dr. Menno E. Sluijter
31 July 1932 - 11 August 2022

Emeritus Professor Anesthesiology / pain management
University of Maastricht

Curious - creative - intellectual - open mind - thinker - scientist - visionary - pioneer - mentor; so many words come to mind.

We are grateful that he shared his profound knowledge, ideas and wisdom with us.
He was a true leader in the field of pain management and many considered him a mentor and teacher. Besides his ideas and wisdom, we will miss his positive look on life, his spot-on quotes, kindness and his thoughtful reflections.

 The Springlife team

What is Springlife Medical all about?

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic pain

Patients with chronic pain sometimes suffer longer than needed. In a lot of cases they can be successfully treated with Pulsed Radio Frequency (PRF) procedures, invasively or transcutaneously, depending on the origin of the pain. As we believe that pulsed RF is, in most cases, a better option than continuous RF, we designed the first Pulsed RF only generator: the Spring2 
For more information of the Spring2, please click here.

Springlife Medical is ISO 13485 certified


Coming up

  • The Spring2 will be present at the meeting of the British Pain Society in London on June 13-15 
  • Please check our calendar for other upcoming meetings.

PRF has more possible applications than just pain management. We have reason to believe that PRF has an effect on oxidative stress and that it reactivates immune cells (RedoxPRF). This could have a wide impact on many immune system related diseases.
At the moment research is being performed in both Brazil and The Netherlands, to find out more about this mode of action. We closely follow these developments.
