Interview with Dr Yury Perfiliev

Interview with Yury Perfiliev for the 40th anniversary journal of RITM OKB ZAO.

Dr. D. med Yury Perfiliev pediatrician, candidate of medicine, extraordinary professor of the Rostov State Medical University (Russia).

Dr. D. Perfiliev has been working with SCENAR for 15 years. According to his observations, the use of SCENAR in medical practice leads to positive results in the treatment of various pathological conditions, which also relate to children.

Q: Why did you start SCENAR therapy? How did it affect you?

A: I am a doctor who grew up according to the principles of the classic Soviet healthcare system. When I first heard about some kind of miracle device, I was quite ironic but remembered the idea. Back then I worked in Africa. When I returned to Russia, one of my friends told me that her daughter treated her patients with a fantastic machine, which made me doubt even more about the amazing possibilities of a small plastic box. But then my intern showed me the analgesic effect of SCENAR treatment. Now I was really interested. I participated in a short SCENAR therapy training and noted that in my hands I hold the device that offers therapeutic influence. Soon I attended a SCENAR therapy conference where I met my student friend, doctor Alexander Tarakanov. Turns out he had been carried away by this technology for a long time. I was also introduced to Jakov Grinberg, who was then Director General of RITM OKB ZAO. At this point I started SCENAR therapy.

Q: They are a pediatrician. How many children have you treated with SCENAR? Can you please tell us the most interesting cases?

A: It’s hard to determine the amount. In addition, I can say that in some cases, the positive effect was achieved by using SCENAR as an independent treatment. In other cases we used the combined treatment because SCENAR works well with other treatment methods to improve their therapeutic effects. I remember a teenager with a full grown gastroesophageal reflux disease (a chronic pathology resulting from gastrointestinal sphinal sphagitis) that caused severe esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus), multiple stomach erosion and so-called “kissing” (double) pylorus I’m sorry. His condition was documented and recorded on video and made a big impression on other doctors. But they were even more impressed when I showed them the results of a 10 day SCENAR treatment course. There were almost no remaining signs of esophagitis, smooth stomach mucosa, heart rosette formation and thin, barely perceptible ulcer scars.

Later we conducted studies in the Gastroenterology Department to treat other intestinal diseases with SCENAR that showed positive results.

Q: What is SCENAR’s place in modern medicine and where do you think it really belongs?

A: In my opinion, SCENAR occupies an inappropriately insignificant place in modern medicine. This can be explained by the way modern doctors are educated. To be honest, most clinical recommendations nowadays are based only on the use of pharmacology.

How does it usually work? A doctor prescribes the medication. A patient takes them. If there is no positive effect, the doctor will give some other pills. In SCENAR therapy you have to think you have to create individual treatment algorithms, put in some time and effort, sometimes without 100 % guaranteed results. This is because SCENAR therapy is an individualized method of treatment. Every patient is unique. The peculiarities of his body are not always clear from the first session. Sometimes the treatment comes with aggravation, in many cases there must even be aggravated, but the patient may not understand this and rejects treatment.

Despite all the difficulties, SCENAR technology has the future, and I’ll tell you why. Every year we can observe how quickly the body no longer reacts to many medications, especially antibiotics. And soon the alternative (non-medicinal) treatment methods based on knowledge of physiological and pathophysiological processes will come to the forefront. This is the time when SCENAR will take its true place in modern medicine.

And at the moment SCENAR needs more advertising and the involvement of more doctors from different fields in this technology.

Q: There’s a joke: When a cold is treated, a patient recovers in a week if not treated – in seven days. Is SCENAR effective in treating acute respiratory or cold diseases viral infections?

A: The course of the disease depends on the pathogen, level of contamination and immunity of the child. Now we are seeing increasingly lengthy rhinitis accompanied by various complications. In order to prevent such cases, the combined approach is required, including non-medicinal treatment methods. The effectiveness of SCENAR in such diseases is undeniable.

Q: Should SCENAR become a common medical instrument like stethoscope or tonometer?

A: That would be right. Wherever I go, I always have my phonendoscope, auriscope and SCENAR with me. Sometimes a doctor’s help is urgently needed. Phonendoscope and auriscope are the devices for diagnosis, and SCENAR is for treatment. I’ve had many cases where SCENAR helped me in critical situations.

Q: How do you judge the prospects for developing SCENAR therapy in your country and worldwide?

A: It’s not an easy question to answer. Anything used to treat people should have a high level of evidence. This means serious clinical trials: randomized, double blind, multi-centric. This is quite difficult because patients have some very specific feelings during SCENAR therapy. However, this means that we need to look for new approaches to investigate the evidence of the method and incorporate SCENAR into general practice.

Q: Do you agree that every family should have at least one SCENAR home device?

A: Well, I can say all my kids have SCENAR devices as a gift from me, and they saw their effectiveness with their own eyes as they treated the bruises, wounds and sprains of their own children.

A piece of SCENAR history

RITM OKB ZAO Space Program

The leaders of the Soviet Union space program took an interest in RITM OKB ZAO in 1984. When the Soviet Union decided to send its cosmonauts to the Earth’s orbit for longer periods, it became clear that it is necessary to equip them with some sort of a universal aid that can help against any diseases that might occur. The government started to search for an enterprise that is able to develop a complex for testing, evaluating, training, and psychological relief for the cosmonauts. The officials highly appreciated the qualification of our engineers and their new developments in the sphere of medical technology, so the choice was made in favour of “RITM” Special Design Office.

In this letter, the Cosmonaut Training Center (CTC) asks to develop devices that can stimulate the acupuncture points in order to use them to provide medical and biological support of the cosmonaut training process. The letter was sent to the Taganrog Institute of Radiotechnology (TRTI) and then forwarded to OKB, as the actual contractor. That letter shows the interest of CTC in RITM OKB ZAO developments.

The implementation of this project involved serious scientific potential, taking into account the previous studies carried out in the University of Tartu (Estonia) and the Research Institute of Neurocybernetics (Rostov-on-Don) and with the participation of the specialists from Kyiv and Kharkiv. The engineers of RITM OKB implemented the system with biofeedback. (Photo 2)

During the development of the project RITM OKB ZAO was visited by the high-ranked specialists and engineers, including cosmonauts, for whom the room project was created. The photo shows RITM OKB ZAO director Vladislav (on the left), the rector of Taganrog Institute of Radiotechnology Nikolai Malyshev, the Chief Engineer of RITM OKB ZAO Rudolf Kruykov (in the background), and the Soviet cosmonaut, twice Hero of the Soviet Union and Companion of the Order of Lenin Yury Malyshev (in the center).

This project proved the high level of professionalism of RITM OKB ZAO’s staff and the ability of RITM to solve complex modern problems. That allowed the company to implement such modern developments as INTENS, Stabilan, Myokom, and, of course, SCENAR.

However, it happened so that SCENAR was not used in the space back then. It was necessary to work out a few additional requirements, including installing the protection against water. But the financing was stopped because of the Perestroika. The space race was over and the group of engineers had to finish their developments for the space industry.

Later on, the result of this development was introduced to the Russian medical device market. In 1995-1996 first SCENAR therapists started to treat their patients using the new technology.
