The company could now build on a tradition going back to 1938 in the development of devices for physical therapy and rehabilitation.


Besides the classical physiotherapy devices, the company's product assortment now includes various kinds of treatment tables as well as units for electrical stimulation therapy, ultrasound therapy, ultrasound inhalation therapy and spirometry.


Die TUR - ein Unternehmen mit Vergangenheit und Zukunft


On 1 October of this year Franz Josef Koch and Kurt August Sterzel found the company Koch&Sterzel "Special Factory for Scientific Apparatuses and Instruments" in Dresden, Germany. The development and manufacture of x-ray equipment by the company is based on basic patents – especially patents obtained by the company's founders. The company employs 10 people; from the beginning it is one of the most innovative medical technology firms.


Koch&Sterzel employ more than 200 people.

After the first world war the business sectors of power transformers, high-voltage testing equipment and instrument transformers evolve into mainstays of the company. Between 1923 and 1932 the company also produces radios.


The work force now numbers 1,840.


The company located in East Germany is expropriated and is now state-owned. Several years later VEB TuR (Transformer and X-Ray Factory Dresden) is founded.


Start-up of the production of devices for physical therapy. As a result of the takeover of the company ELMED in Hohen Neuendorf near Berlin in 1964, this business sector becomes one of the mainstays of TuR's business.


The company adopts its well-known logo in time for the Leipzig Spring Fair.


TuR employs more than 5,000 people.


Restructuring following German reunification: while Siemens takes over the sector of x-ray technology, the sector of transformers, instrument transformers and high-voltage technology goes to the Ritz Group. As a result of a management buyout and the founding of TuR-Elektromedizin GmbH in Hohen Neuendorf near Berlin, the business sector of medical electronics – with a focus on physical therapy – is now independent.


Shortly after its founding, Therapietechnik Rostock GmbH purchases the assets for the development, production and distribution of devices for physical therapy and electromedical cosmetics from TuR-Elektromedizin GmbH and acquires the brands "TUR elektromedizin" and "TUR cosmetics". With only 10 employees the company is now starting out again just as small as it was at the time of its founding in 1904.


TUR Elektromedizin plus GmbH is founded in Hohen Neuendorf with the objective of developing a new generation of "human interfaces" for electromedicine and other applications.


In January TUR GmbH is founded in Dresden with a focus on carrying out marketing and distribution for the TuR group of companies.


In February the development of the totally new equipment generation is completed and series production and delivery can get underway.
