Can a simple hand-held device work miracle cures?
If it's the Russian SCENAR, you bet!
(sometimes spelled SKENAR)

Scenar Device

One of the most brilliant healing machines I discovered in my search for future trends while writing my book VIRTUAL MEDICINE is the Russian SCENAR device (self-controlled energo-neuro-adaptive-regulation.

Actually, it's a whole family of machines and I predicted they will completely change the face of medicine in the next 20 years. They are fast, portable, cheap and effective against almost any condition, from treat sports injuries, strokes, angina, acute infections, back pains and irritable bowel disease (as well as pre-menstrual tension and post-surgical complications) and even defibrillating hearts!


The origin of the machine is surrounded in secrecy from the Russian military. But it clearly springs from research into the electro-magnetic field effects of the body's biological energy. Eventually, a team of scientists and doctors was assembled to study possible medical applications of the technology. The SCENAR researchers subsequently used it to study an Eastern therapy known as zonal contact massage. The intention had been to develop some way of altering the pressure of the massage, according to skin response (in VIRTUAL MEDICINE chapter 3, I described how the dielectric potential of collagen tissue is stimulated by pressure).

Equipment was developed to monitor magnetic effects taking place in the skin and use these to modulate changes in pressure of the massage. The establishment of a biofeedback mechanism led to the creation of a device whose output would depend on skin energetic response.

The aim is to stimulate the body's own endogenous energies to effect the cure, creating a cascade of endogenous neuropeptides. This allows the body its own choice of healing ingredients; a sort of on-board pharmacy. Through biofeedback an interaction is formed between the tissues and the instrument, each new signal evolves as a new output. No two consecutive signals from the device are the same. This allows the treatment to be truly dynamic, adjusting for changes in the body through time and in different physiological states.

The term SCENAR was born. It is yet another brilliant marriage of Western electronic technology and Eastern energetic healing skills (which is what VIRTUAL MEDICINE is all about).


When the Soviet Union decided to send cosmonauts into orbit for prolonged periods, it was clear that they needed to have a means of treating any illnesses that could befall them. Unlike the American system, there were no convenient re-usable shuttles to bring back an ailing cosmonaut back to Earth, should the need have arisen. The possibility of incapacitating disease was a major worry.

The pharmaceutical approach was not tenable, bearing in mind the rigorous weight and space limitations and the fact that drug-oriented medicine is based on the principle of one substance for each (potential) condition. Even a very modest medicine range would be weighty. Also, in an environment where recycling of water is such an essential feature, any drug entering the water circulation system would remain, passing through the cosmonaut many times.

This was at a time when the Russian space programme was being watched by the rest of the world and maintaining national prestige was of paramount concern to the Soviet government. It was essential to come up with something radically new. It had to be light, easy to use and, of course, really effective.

Bioenergetic technology was the only extant medical paradigm capable of delivering these stringent requirements. The SCENAR came to the fore.

Ironically, no SCENAR device has been used in space to date. There were delays caused by the authorities insisting on a waterproofing process. Before this matter was resolved, funds were suddenly stopped at the time of perestroika; the so-called ‘space race' was called off and the team disbanded. The USA began working on combined space projects with the Russians and they introduced the capability of evacuating sick cosmonauts on the shuttle, which meant there was no further need of on-board therapy.

However, four of the original team felt they had designed a very worthwhile system, capable of changing the face of medicine, and decided to take it onto the open market. So far, around 600 doctors in Russia are using it as their principal treatment modality and it is now available to select and trained practitioners in the West. VIRTUAL MEDICINE has crossed-over into the mainstream!

The promise of a small hand-held device that is capable of curing most illness, such as was portrayed in the cult 1970s TV series "STAR TREK", has become a reality.


The original inventor of the Scenar was A.A.Karasev an electronics engineer back in 1973 who made one for himself after some of his family members died and the conventional medicine of the day could not help.

Karasev later worked for the Russian Cosmonaut programme and showed his invention to his superiors who were very interested, so much so that a team was set up with funding to develop the idea further.

Manufacturing was (and still is for some models) carried out by the Priboy company which supplies military hardware.

The device was never actually used in space as they were unable to come up with a watertight model which was what had been specified.

The end of the communist era led to a cessation of funding but some of the members of the team decided to continue and formed the OKB Ritm company in 1983. Names you repeatedly come across are A.N.Revenko, Y.Grinberg, and Y.Gorfinkel as well as Karasev. They managed to get approval in 1986 from the Russian Ministry of Health for the device to be used in health clinics.

The OKB Ritm company still produces several models using names such as Scenar 97, Scenar NT, Scenar 2003, Autoscenar and Kosmed. ( They have a branch office in the Netherlands. (

Karasev decided to go his own way in 1990 and set up the LET Medical company which produces a range of models under the Scenar and Cosmodic brands. (

The Rema company in Belorussia started producing Prologue and Enart models in 1993. ( Check out their English powerpoint presentation where it says 'english version' (

CCC Invet is a reseller of several of the above companies products and has an English website. (

Another company RTS ART was set up in 1995 and now trades as Denas MS producing the Denas and DiaDens models. ( They have many resellers some with English websites such as (

The Pervade Wave company in Hong Kong has a regional (Asia) licence to produce the Space Healer model. These are sold in HK ( and in Australia (

There is also supposed to be a US made model the Inter X 5000 from NRG (Neuro Research Group) but it is taking a very long time to come to fruition..

If you are the owner or connected with any of these websites, please keep your links up to date by contacting me. I am NOT responsible for keeping your potential customers informed. YOU ARE!


It seems that Ritm was originally happy to licence the Scenar idea to other companies, but then when they started to make their own variants disputes arose as to who could use the brand name Scenar and whose model was better etc. Hence there is quite a lot of mudslinging and you sometimes have to read between the lines.

Most of the companies originally targeted the health care market with expensive products although there are now some cheaper home-use models with reduced features. They also tended to sell training courses to their customers and provided little written documentation.

The exception seems to be the Denas company which decided to go down the network marketing route with large numbers of resellers and reasonable prices. They have four current models including a Euro Denas one with CE certification and an English version of their printed 240 page Denas Therapy Manual and its accompanying 2 hour video, although the English translation could be much improved. Their latest model the Diadens-DT even includes two electro acupuncture modes.

You can download a good 172 page English manual from Transformation Technologies website. ( It is not stated where this manual came from but the preface is signed Sergey Solomko and he is the owner of the Invet company.

I also discovered that there is a wealth of Scenar related information on the internet but unsurprisingly mostly in Russian. However I have had great success using the free online translation engine WorldLingo. (

You copy and paste any web address into their website translator, choose the language pair, select the advanced option 'Medical' or 'Electronics' or whatever as appropriate and it translates the page. Then as you continue browsing the site it keeps on translating it for you. If you see something of interest and want more information you go back to the original Russian website and copy and paste the relevant Russian text into Google and that way you find more sites which you translate and so on.

On a slightly separate issue you might have noticed that many sellers of Scenar devices also offer a multilayer therapeutic healing blanket. These were invented by A.A.Datchenko of the Victoria company ( who also licensed other producers including OKB Ritm.. They are approved by the Russian Ministry of Health and apparently very effective.

It was only when I translated some websites that I found out what these are. They seem to be a modern day equivalent of Wilhelm Reich's 'orgone accumulators' where patients lay in a metal lined wooden box for treatment. (

There are interesting blanket articles on the Victoria website including some fascinating feedback from LET Medical quoting the words of 'the well known medium Elsa' when they treated her with one.

The device weighs around 300 gm, resembles a TV remote control and is powered by an ordinary 9v. battery. It is placed on the skin of the chest, head, abdomen or any diseased part, where it collects electromagnetic signals. These are then modulated according to the on-board software programme and played back to the tissues. Essentially, SCENAR is using the patient's own endogenous signals on a cybernetic feedback basis, scanning and re-transmitting many times a second. As described to me, the device ‘evolves' a new signal pattern for the disordered tissues, the machine literally entering into an information dialogue with the body. New frequencies and energy patterns are established, which in turn become fresh input signals, to be further modified, and so on. This output-equals-new- input is much the way that fractals are generated and thus, biologically-speaking, we seem to be on good ground here. On the premise that disease signals are generally fixed and unnatural, anything which breaks up the existing order has the capability of disease-busting.


Male, 69 years old.

This man who was a gardener by profession had chronic suppurating osteomyelitis of the foot which could not be controlled. He was scheduled for an amputation of the lower leg in four days time, largely due to intractable pain. Someone decided to try a SCENAR device on him. It was run over the affected limb for about 30 minutes.

Next day, the pain had vanished for the first time in 8 months. Later that day another 30-minute treatment was given. By next morning the recovery was so dramatic the amputation was called off. A third treatment was given and seven days after the first SCENAR this man was back at work, digging in the garden. His leg has completely recovered.

Female, age 68 years.

This lady had attended for successful treatment of her asthma. She commented on painful arthritic knees. I decided to try the SCENAR. In order to gauge the effectiveness of the treatment I suggested that we concentrate on the left knee only and she could compare any improvements with the status of the right knee.

Next morning she rang and was delighted that the pain had vanished from BOTH knees. One week later, as of the time she returned to the UK, she had no further pain.

Female, age 41 years.

This lady is the presenter of a radio-programme on which I appear each month as the visiting alternative doctor. On this occasion (early-April) she was struggling with her hay-fever, with streaming eyes and nose and constant sniffing which sounded awful on-air.

In a 3-minute gap for advertisements I grabbed the SCENAR device and gave her a fast treatment over the forehead and cheeks. Just before going back on-air she breathed in and was delighted to note that virtually all symptoms had vanished! She needed a further treatment 2 days later, as the symptoms were back. But again, just a few minutes cleared her sinuses completely.

She has opted for regular treatments, until we can do an allergy work up for her condition.


The device is very safe; the impulse times are very short. No pain is felt but the patient is usually aware of a tingling sensation while it works. The practitioner seeks for what the Russians term asymmetry, meaning something different about the tissue characteristics in the vicinity. There are five main criteria:

  1. discolouration (reddening or pallor)

  2. sensation (numbness or hyper-aesthesia)

  3. stickiness' in which the machine drags with a magnet-like quality as it is drawn over certain tracts of the skin

  4. sound changes (the machine begins to chatter electronically as it hits certain zones)

  5. change in numerical output display

Even though it may not coincide with the obvious area of symptoms or pathology, the important point is to treat the asymmetry. For reasons we do not fully understand, when this is eliminated, recovery will rapidly follow.


A summary of findings in different clinical groups on 50,000 cases from 3,000 SCENAR doctors and other practitioners includes cumulative percentages in which effectiveness' is defined as a cure in 66% of cases and some improvement in 33% of cases:

  • Circulatory 82%
  • Musculoskeletal 79%
  • Respiratory 84%
  • Ear and Mastoid 82%
  • Gastrointestinal 93
  • Eye and adnexae 93%
  • Genito-urinary 89%
  • Mouth/jaw/saliva 91%
  • Gynae and obstetrics 78%

This list is far from exhaustive and I have been able to establish that there are many other areas in which SCENAR is highly effective. For example, there is a current 98% cure rate achievement for benign prostatic hypertrophy and in the case of acute mastitis the device is 100% effective to date. Nothing I know of can come close to its figures against frigidity, impotence and infertility (60th percentile).

There are remarkably few contra-indications, notably heart pacemakers and, after 20 years, a complete absence of negative side-effects. SCENAR technology can be used as a valuable addition to other therapies or could be a stand-alone treatment. The extra-ordinary feature is that the same small device can be used to treat the heart of one patient, the knee of the next, the breasts and reproductive adnexae of the next - all relying on one small battery as an energy source!
