Pulsed Radiofrequency (PRF) Device 'Spring2'

October 2018

In the past months our new Pulsed Radiofrequency (PRF) device called 'Spring2' has been shown at various national and international congresses. Main purpose was to get feedback in order to finalize the development of the Spring2, that can be used for performing both invasive and transcutaneous PRF treatments. The interest for the Spring2 was above expected. We much appreciate the positive feedback that was given to us and we will incorporate it as smuch as we can.

Succesful symposium in Nottwil (CH)

March 2018

Begining of March a scientific symposium took place at the Pain Centre of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre in Nottwil (SPZ) in Switzerland. Invasive treatments of chronic pain, as well as transcutaneous applications of PRF were discussed. 
Remarkable was the outcome of a basic researchproject that was performed in Brazil by dr. Brasil, that showed a clear balancing effect of PRF on oxidative stress in cells. It may be the first step of defining the mode of action of PRF.
Also, dr. Eveline Kuip, an oncologist at the Radboud University, spoke about cancer and the immune system and about a basic research project at her University that showed a transition of immune cells as a result of PRF. 
Prof. Menno Sluijter talked about inflammation and oxidative stress and the effect of transcutaneous PRF on these mechanisms (also known as RedoxPRF). Both him and dr. Alexandre Teixeira showed case studies of patients treated with transcutaneous PRF.
It was a very interesting congress, where good scientific discussions took place and valuable connections were made. 
The next congress will take place in February / March 2021



Seminar about ImmunoPRF

24 juli 2017

On June 6th, a symposium in Amsterdam was organized by Equip Medikey, solely dedicated to Pulsed RF (PRF). Renowned speakers such as Prof.dr. M.E. Sluijter and dr. Olav Rohof spoke about future developments and treatments of the spine and joints. It was a highly informative day with ground breaking insights. The feedback was greatly positive.
Prof.dr. M.E. Sluijter was so kind to provide us his slides. One is about the mode of action of PRF and the parameters (see this link). The other set of slides is about ImmunoPRF (see this link).

Research

25 juli 2017

In close cooperation with the ‘Nederlandse Stichting Pijnbestrijding’ and a renowned University hospital we’re preparing a pilot study. This study will investigate the influence of ImmunoPRF on cancer patients. We’re hopeful that the study will begin early 2018. We cannot reveal too many details yet, but when the time comes, we will surely let you know.
