In the 1970s, the space race was in full swing with the Americans and Russians competing to reach 'the final frontier'. In terms of the rockets used, the Russians had solid fuel booster rocket systems while the US had advanced re-usable shuttle technology.
If through illness or injury, an unexpected and potentially fatal condition occurred amongst the crew,NASA would be able to assist their astronauts using the space shuttle but a Soviet rescue mission would have taken very much longer if at all.
This difference between the two approaches was pivotal in understanding Scenar development why it was, and remains ahead of its time.
The Russians needed an effective solution that would allow them to treat any condition that may arise with their cosmonauts, without relying on slow intervention from earth.
An elite team of doctors and scientists was assembled to design a device which was lightweight, portable, run on minimal power, be exceptionally medically effective and require minimal training.
The result was S.C.E.N.A.R technology (Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulation).
The blueprint for Scenar was based on acupuncture, Chinese zonal massage and the knowledge of Chi or energy flow through the body. Soviet scientists, who studied the intricate workings of the Central Nervous System and the ability of cells to communicate via different pathways, began to formulate the ideas that would lead to sophisticated electrical biofeedback devices.
They were the first to achieve repeatable therapeutic treatment using electrical signals to stimulate the immune system. For this, two of this team received the Order of Lenin. Development continued with pioneering research led by Dr Yori Gorfinkel and Professor Alexander Revenko Scenar, resulting in the advanced Scenar devices of today.
This success led to original Scenar being included in the inventory of the Buran Space Project. This program was the most ambitious project of the history of Soviet space conquest and employed over one million people until it ran out of funds in 1993 after the breakup of the Soviet Union.
Today we are all able to benefit from Scenar technology and in doing so can rapidly take care of pain and greatly accelerate healing from a vast range of health problems - regaining control of our own health.
