Professional athletes put their trust in MBST

The demands on the body of the athlete and the medical care in professional sports are high. Downtimes are costly, Return to play – faster is the motto. MBST is used more and more often in the highest classes in national and international sports.

Dr. René Toussaint, team doctor of the first league handball team of SC DHfK Leipzig, also uses MBST in the treatment of his players. These days, after suffering an injury in training, defensive back Martin Larsen is treated with the same therapy that has already helped his team colleagues Philipp Weber and Maciej Gebala.

Larsen’s first feedback: “As a handball pro, I have already been injured a lot. Now with my current ligament injury, I have been treated with MBST therapy for the first time by our team doctor Dr. René Toussaint and I am impressed. Especially the fast healing and improvement of the pain have surprised me. I hope, I will be able to play handball again soon now.”

Currently, also players from top teams of the 1st German soccer league (Bundesliga) and clubs of the English Premier League are treated with MBST.

Due to infection protection reasons, the announcement of the nominees and prize winners, which usually takes place within the framework of MEDICA in Düsseldorf, was streamed this year only digitally as a livestream on the German Medical Award website and youtube. A word of greeting from the patron Karl-Josef Laumann, Minister of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, was also included. The digital ceremony was opened by the initiator of the German Medical Award, Dr. H. C. Yvonne Esser: ”Dear nominees and prize winners. You stand for the medicine of the future. The medicine of the future, that is not only our inspiration, but also our common mission. Medicine of the future and we all are the bridge on which the next generations will walk“.

We congratulate all prize winners and are proud to belong with all these innovative and exciting projects to the finalists of the German Medical Award.

Suffering from osteoarthritis – what to do in times of Corona?

Despite the current good progress in the development of a vaccine, the Corona pandemics and its resulting restrictions will affect all our lives in the next months. But while the public life can be put on hold, degenerative diseases and the accompanying symptoms do not pause. On the contrary, the current situation intensifies the problems for many patients.

Cold weather and a lack of movement aggravate symptoms of osteoarthritis

A man holds his bent knee with both hands

Many patients with osteoarthritis suffer from a subjective increase of disease-related complaints in the cold season of the year. The pain grows and shows more frequently. The joints feel even more immobile in cold and damp weather. But too much rest often has the opposite effect to the intended relief because the joint cartilage depends on movement and stress for an adequate supply with nutrients and the production of the synovial fluid. A lack of movement, because the couch and the warmth in the house are more enticing than the dismal weather outside, encourage an aggravation of the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Complaints know no lockdown

This year, the cancellation of sports courses and restrictions in leisure time activities make the situation even more difficult. Moreover, the hurdle to getting the necessary medical help feels higher. Since large numbers of people with osteoarthritis belong to the risk group for Covid-19, many avoid hospitalisation or consultations with a doctor for fear of infection. In many places, planned elective surgeries, which include arthroscopic and endoprosthetic operations, are also cancelled in order to ensure in-patient care in case of emergencies.

No false restraint with seeking medical help


Instead of trying to cope on their own, patients should not hesitate to get medical treatment if they need it. Modern orthopaedics offers a wide range of non-surgical treatment options for osteoarthritis. With the always high and now even stricter standards of hygiene in medical practices, the risk for catching Covid-19 is very low. If possible, the specialist practices try not to have patients with any acute symptoms of infects enter the premises.

An effective treatment can help patients with osteoarthritis to get through this pandemic winter. When the pain is less, the urgently needed movement also becomes easier. Also during this time, doctors and medical specialists remain the best and safe contact person for all health-related complaints.

Member of the Bundestag Hans-Juergen Irmer visits MedTec in Wetzlar

After his fellow party member Frank Steinraths visited MedTec Medizintechnik GmbH in July, Hans-Juergen Irmer, MdB, took the time this week to get to know the Wetzlar-based medical technology company. In conversation with Managing Director Axel Muntermann, not only the company's more than 20-year history and the development of the patented MBST technology were a topic, but also the principle of action and the fields of application. As publisher of the quarterly "Health Compass Mittelhessen", medical topics are of great interest to Mr. Irmer. Thus, future possibilities of usage which could result from the active principle at the cell level were also discussed.

A tour of the in-house showroom with the exhibition of MBST therapy device concluded the visit.

New MBST licensee for Great Britain

By taking over the MBST Master License, the distribution in Great Britain lies now in the hands of Cell Regeneration Ltd. MedTec is glad to have won such an experienced partner who will further the expansion of MBST magnetic resonance therapy.

MBST Award 2020 goes to Dr. med. Volker Stolzenbach in Muehlacker

Dr. med. Volker Stolzenbach was presented with an MBST Award by Axel Muntermann at the gala evening during the third international medical symposium about MBST. Dr. Stolzenbach has used the MBST magnetic resonance system for more than 20 years with great success. In this time, he has not only given a large number of lectures about MBST magnetic resonance therapy but also been a competent advisor in medical questions for MedTec.

Dr. Stolzenbach uses several innovative treatment options in his private practice for orthopaedics that aim at supporting the body’s own healing processes and stimulate a real healing of the damaged tissue. One of them is the MBST therapy system.

“My specialist training largely centered around surgical treatment methods, as is the case for all orthopaedists. In my own practice, I focused increasingly on avoiding surgery whenever possible. Treatment methods that support or stimulate endogenous weakened powers of self-healing aim at treating the cause of the pain. Their effect doesn’t come as fast as that of pain killers or cortisone because these healing processes take time but they work sustainably. The damaged tissue, for example a tendon or the cartilage in the joint, can recover, regenerate, rejuvenate. And these regenerating treatments also have very few side effects”, says Dr. Stolzenbach.

MBST Award 2020 goes to Ilker Hasa · MBST Turkey

Turkish delegation visits MedTec headquarters in Wetzlar

Extensive expansion plans for MBST in Turkey

MedTec Medizintechnik GmbH und türkische Delegation im Gespräch
F. l. t. r.: Axel Muntermann, Ilker Hasa, Guido Finkes, Yasin Düngur

On February fourth and fifth, a delegation of the Turkish MBST master license partner visited the Wetzlar headquarters of MedTec Medizintechnik GmbH. The MBST magnetic resonance therapy system has already been successfully used for almost ten years in many Turkish treatment centers – among others in Istanbul, Ankara and Kocasinan.

Due to the constantly growing demand, it is planned to significantly expand the number of MBST treatment centers. In this context, the focus of the visit was set on the latest MBST therapy devices of the SPIN·SYSTEMS device generation, as these cover a significantly broader range of indications.

MBST supports Trier soccer player Branscheid

Team doctor Dr. med. Peter Krapf uses most modern treatments for the players of Eintracht Trier to keep downtimes as short as possible. Among others, this is the MBST magnetic resonance therapy that was for instance used in the treatment of goalgetter Jan Branscheid. The aim was to shorten the striker’s injury-related pause after suffering a rupture of a bundle of muscles during training.

The treatment is done in the practice of Dr. med. Peter Krapf in Trier who has long experience in the application of therapeutic magnetic resonance for professional athletes. "The therapy often has fast and sustainable results while also being gentle on the patient and free of side-effects. That is a unique advantage", SVE team doctor sums up that modern therapy option.

Therapeutic approach: biophysical cell stimulation

With its therapeutic approach of biophysical cell stimulation, MBST is not only used in the treatment of degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis but also increasingly in professional sports – also preventive and postsurgical. The aim of the metabolic stimulation is then the acceleration of the healing process in order to reduce the necessary downtime. Scientific data suggests that MBST magnetic resonance technology stimulates various biophysical processes and triggers anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.
