Meditrac's story begins with the story of its founder, late Dr. Ludwig Stabholz, who was born in Warsaw in 1911
and gained his education in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Warsaw.
During World War II Dr. Stabholz was appointed as a department head of Surgery in the Polish Army Hospital
where he was forced to treat the back of an S.S. officer among other patients.
Since this experience and the fact that the exposure to disc problems saved his life and he survived the war,
Dr. Stabholz decided to dedicate his professional life to research and development of spinal treatments.
Since his immigrating to Israel on 1945, Dr. Stabholz worked as a back disorder specialist in both public and private medical institutions. For many years he has investigated the main causes of failure of conservative traction method and non-surgical solutions for treating spinal disorders.
By 1991, Dr. Stabholz designed the prototype of the innovative apparatus - "Vertetrac" based on his immense research
In 1992, Dr. Stabholz published the book of "Low Back Disorders – Innovative Ambulatory Treatment and Self Treatment" – upon which Meditrac's foundations were built.
Later on that year, Meditrac was established by Dr. Stabholz Stabholz who worked all those years as a well-known consultant of spine. Dr. Stabholz passed away in 2007 and left a huge legacy of spine treatments.
In 2000, Dr. Arieh Grober, an Orthopedic Surgeon took over the management of Meditrac Spinal Center in Tel Aviv as well as the overseeing of medical research programs and development.
Over the years Meditrac has evolved, with a team of researchers and advisors who are at the forefront of spinal cord treatment technology, resulting in innovative devices and a revolutionary therapy concept that benefit health care professionals and their patients worldwide.
Recent research development efforts have resulted in the next generation Vertetrac - Meditrac's lumbar spine solution a more affordable and space saving version, the Cervico 2000 for the cervical spine and the D.B.S. system for Scoliosis.
Today, Meditrac continues to be at the forefront of therapy innovation with its ongoing research and is currently selling
the 5th edition of Vertetrac and the 2nd edition of Cervico 2000.
Meditrac's products have been widely featured in research publications, including studies on treatment efficacy
and the mechanism of motion during treatment.
