Advanced Medical Device Technology

Von Ardenne Institute of Applied Medical Research was founded more than 30 years ago to push the boundaries of medical research and honor the lifetime achievements of Prof. Manfred von Ardenne. Our institute is well-known for its pioneering work in research, development and distribution of whole-body hyperthermia devices.

Artificial fever as a Therapeutic Agent

Fever is a common sign of a healthy immune system fighting off infectious diseases. Through an increase in core temperature, the self-healing processes of the body are stimulated which helps the body to deal with the illness more effectively and therefore reduces the recovery time. The IRATHERM®1000M is a whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) device which is specially designed to promote the elevation of body temperature by inducing an “artificial fever”. Artificial fever is used as a therapeutic agent with a bright spectrum of indications ranging from preventive applications up to the treatment of chronic diseases and malignant tumors. By choosing a Von Ardenne IRATHERM®1000M, you can trust on more than 40 years of medical research and expertise in the area of whole-body, deep tissue, water-filtered Infrared-A-hyperthermia.
