Hello !

We understand the gravity of the situation


The former head of the ASBH (Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Working Group) Ms Schlegel, who devoted herself to the lives of her members, once told us that hydrocephalus turns patients’ lives upside down. So we wanted to know more. To understand in more detail how people deal with hydrocephalus in their everyday life, what challenges a patient, their relatives, doctors and nursing staff can expect. We believe that “people who better understand can also help better”.

Your life has been turned upside down, we want to offer you support!

Female patient: "This is the first time in a long time that I can walk again!"

Pediatric patient: "There is so much to discover in life."

Surgeon: "The SVASONA study is a great study yielding very good evidence for gravitational valves!"

We understand campaign visual – Making-of

Hydrocephalus is a very complex disease that turns patients' lives upside down. With the visual, which Julia, a patient, also belongs to, we want to express our solidarity with the patients: “Your life is upside down, but you’re not alone. You can rely on the knowledge, understanding and support of others. For you we will change our perspectives and don't remain with the usual. WE UNDERSTAND shunt technology and together we create new innovations for the best of the patients.”

Together for a better life with hydrocephalus

We have an intensive and longstanding partnership with MIETHKE in the field of neurosurgery. We are driven by a common vision: to improve the lives of hydrocephalus patients with innovative solutions.
