start of 1:1-Block public summary

Brief Summary in Lay Language

The study will assess the pain relief and improvement in the quality of life of patients with cervical spine disorder who have been treated with the Rayocomp bioresonance device. The study participants fill in questionnaires on quality of life, performance and neck pain (NDI). The study also assesses demographic and medical history data. In addition, the safety of the treatment will be investigated by recording adverse events during the study. During the study phase, 10 sessions of therapy with the Rayocomp bioresonance device or with a non-functional device (placebo) take place within up to 21 days. The evaluation of the data collected in this study is intended to increase knowledge of bioresonance therapy and to improve the treatment of patients with cervical spine disorder.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

This study is a randomized, prospective, double-blind study according to MPG §23b investigating treatment with the Rayocomp bioresonance device. The Rayocomp bioresonance device is a CE-certified medical device for alleviating the pain symptoms in patients with cervical spine disorder. The primary objective of the study is effectiveness as measured by the NDI; secondary objectives are safety, quality of life and VAS. A total of 52 patients shall be enrolled.
