Alexander Karasev created the first Russian TENS device, which was designed to block pain. This device was approved and tested in his hometown's regional hospital at Krasnodar.
Karasev releases the ENS-01. This is the first model designed to be able to treat disease, not just eliminate pain. This was the first prototype of S.C.E.N.A.R.. It was tested, trialled and put into practice at the sanatorium "Automobilist" in Sochi, under the supervision of Doctor Leontiev, who later became one of the best S.C.E.N.A.R.-therapists. The ENS was manufactured in Krasnodar until 1981.
Alexander Karasev went on to study at two institutes, the Taganrog Institute of Radio Engineering, and Rostov Medical School. Alexander Revenko was a student during this period too; he and Karasev had not yet met.
Karasev, Lev Tatoev and others created the Department of Medical Electronics at the Institute of Radio Engineering for the express purpose of developing electronic equipment for medical use. In 1980, this department was reorganised into "OKB Midas". S.C.E.N.A.R. was not allowed to be developed there, as military projects had to be given priority.
OKB Midas was renamed to OKB Ritm because the head of OKB was changed. By that time Karasev had finished developing ENS-02 and ENS-03 (this latter model was also put into practice at Krasnodar hospital). ENS-01 and ENS-02 pre-dated OKB Ritm.
ENS-03 was offered for serial production through OKB Ritm, under the name of S.C.E.N.A.R.-033, at Priboy factory. However, it turned out that OKB Ritm's promise to help led no where and this attempt at production failed.
Alexander Revenko, who worked as a neuro-pathologist in one of the polyclinics in Taganrog, was offered to trial the ENS-03.
ENS-03 (S.C.E.N.A.R.-033) was also trialled at the Central Institute of Traumatology and some other medical institutions in Moscow. The results of these trials, and Revenko's trials at the clinic in Taganrog, were used to support the application for approval of S.C.E.N.A.R. by the Health Ministry of USSR.
In 1986 Grinberg and Nadtochi came to work in OKB Ritm and formed its information and commercial centre. This team dealt with all commercial aspects, in particular trying to find additional funding for OKB Ritm, since governmental grants for science were not enough. The team simultaneously were trying to introduce computer equipment on the Russian market.
Alexander Karasev creates his own medical centre, to which he invited Yuri Gorfinkel, Pobokin, Kruglov, Pak and other doctors. Gorfinkel and Kruglov created the first instruction protocols for use of the S.C.E.N.A.R.. Later, Revenko introduced some modifications and presented them for registration with the Health Ministry of the USSR, who duly approved the technology for home and professional use.
January 4, 1987
The Alexander Karasev team was awarded the patent for an electrostimulator. (Authors: Karasev and others). This was the first patent covering an aspect of S.C.E.N.A.R..
Model T4-01 was specifically designed for research purposes during an expedition to Lkotsze in Nepal. This model was used for people suffering air insufficiency and frostbites.
March 6, 1989
The Karasev team got its next patent for a device for electrostimulation. (Authors: Karasev, Zakharevich, Revenko, Kibirev, Dygai and others)
Karasev founds and heads the Research Laboratory for Medical Electronics "LET Medical". The laboratory develops engineering samples of models T4-02 (which was used at our medical centre, and sought to research ethnic differences in treatment modalities). This model was produced in limited number, about 20 units.
S.C.E.N.A.R.-032 was developed and prepared for serial production by "LET Medical". At this same time, key documentation went missing and later resulted in the emergence of DENAS devices.
S.C.E.N.A.R.-035 is put into serial production by "LET Medical" at "Arkaim" plant (which was a production department of LET Medical).
Jakob Grinberg and Alexander Nadtochi from OKB Ritm were offered the sales and marketing rights for this model. Karasev provided materials for training seminars and marketing; he also invited Alexander Revenko to become a trainer. The proposed marketing programme included provisions for conferences on S.C.E.N.A.R.-therapy and international events.
On the basis of the research done on T4-01, T4-02 "LET Medical" developed quite new series of devices: S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-510, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-511, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-512, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-513, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-513m, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-520, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-531, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-532, S.C.E.N.A.R. DS-532m. Only 513, 513m, 532 and 532m models were put into mass production and were produced until 1995. This series first incorporated digital processing of the biological feedback, permitted variations in action depth, allowed for ethnic differences, and incorporated other research obtained with previous models.
LET Medical provides repair documentation for S.C.E.N.A.R.-035 to OKB Ritm, now headed by Jakob Grinberg. Shortly after this, OKB Ritm breaks off relationships with LET Medical having decided to go it alone. In 1997, OKB Ritm registers LET Medical's S.C.E.N.A.R.-035 model under the name S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.0, and S.C.E.N.A.R.-035-1 under the name S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.1 and starts marketing them. Gorfinkel and Revenko remain with Grinberg; and Alexander Revenko creates new methods and progressive levels of training. OKB Ritm makes some modifications to the 035 model (including insertion of a display) and call this model S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.4. Some years later, they change the plastic casing and call the model S.C.E.N.A.R. 2003 (or S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.4 Plus).
LET Medical creates new devices in the 600 series, which was meant for research purposes. The models were S.C.E.N.A.R. PS 603 (model for personal use), S.C.E.N.A.R. VX610, 611, 612. The purpose of the models in this series was the placing of the whole electronic block on one chip and employing new research to enhance the reliability of the devices.
In 1997, many of those who play a role in the unfolding of S.C.E.N.A.R. meet in the Bahamas on the occasion of the wedding of Dr Irina Kossovskaia, a Russian eye-specialist and S.C.E.N.A.R. practitioner. During this year Dr James Colthurst, a surgeon and homoeopath from England, is introduced to S.C.E.N.A.R. in Holland, following an introduction by Dr Vladimir Vinnikov.
In January 1998, the first international S.C.E.N.A.R. training event takes place in the Bahamas, hosted by Mediscen International and Dr Irina Kossovskaia. Dr. Colthurst also attends.
Following this event, first in partnership with Philip Barker, then alone, Dr Colthurst introduces S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.4 into the United Kingdom, where he renames it "Kosmed". He secures the CE mark for the Kosmed and commences training on the device. He is deeply committed to ensuring that the training standards adhere to Western European requirements.
In 1999, Mr Jan de Jong enters into a joint venture with OKB-Ritm to commence assembly of the S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.4 in Holland and to market from there. Philip and Gillian Barker recruit Dr Zulia Frost to provide training on the 97.4 they sell via their company, Life Energies.
In 2000, Dr Zulia Frost leaves the Barkers and develops with Guy Beckerlegge the S.C.E.N.A.R. Training Centre (STC) in the UK, and Neuro-Energy Inc. in the USA. Colin Newsome secures the CE mark for the S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.4 for the entire EU area.
During this period, LET Medical creates the 700 series: S.C.E.N.A.R. PS 700, S.C.E.N.A.R. PS 701, S.C.E.N.A.R. PS 703, S.C.E.N.A.R. PS 704, S.C.E.N.A.R. PS 705 oe these are models for personal and semi-professional use.
S.C.E.N.A.R. VX 713 is a professional emergency-care model; S.C.E.N.A.R. VX 715, S.C.E.N.A.R. VX 725 are professional models.
In 2003, Dr Colthurst announces that due to difficulties in securing professional collaboration with his Russian counterparts, he is giving up Kosmed in order to be able to concentrate on developing his own treatment device and programme, to be called the Fenzian System.
LET Medical creates in the S.C.E.N.A.R. series, the model 735, which incorporates all developments and research from the previous years, including micro-resonances of the biological feedback. This model encourages cell regeneration and the activation of stem cells, and represents the direction LET Medical is currently taking in S.C.E.N.A.R. development.
In 2004, OKB Ritm announce the launch of S.C.E.N.A.R. 97.5.
