The students know and master the theoretical and practical principles of the (medical) arranged electro-, mechano-and thermo-therapeutic measures. You can describe more appropriate analgesic or muscle-stimulating current waveforms based on neurophysiological basis and apply (eg Skenartherapie, electrotherapy "new"). In-depth findings on ultrasound and laser therapy are to be linked with the basics of the Bindegewebsphysiologie and integrated into the treatment of trauma and orthopedic patients.
