Founded only in January 2018 in Vienna, PHYSIOTECHNIK Schaffarik GmbH is the youngest company in the ‘Start-up Zone’. When developing the MedBoard (new: Schaffarik-Board) , for which a patent is pending, founder, Gregor Schaffarik, was able to draw on his training in mechatronics and medical equipment engineering, as well as on many years of experience as a physiotherapist. MedBoard (new: Schaffarik-Board) is a piece of therapeutic equipment for the lower extremities, which helps mobilise the joints in the final stages, by training the muscles in both concentric and eccentric movement. It is particularly suitable for patients following transfemoral amputation or knee replacement surgery. The muscle training can be undertaken under partial load in the early stages following an accident or in a hospital bed with post-operative patients.
The ‘Start-up Zone’ is located at the heart of the trade show in Hall 3 Stand D28.
