international patents and licenses on rehabilitation exercise
and sport. The first in the former USSR to create a computer
handbook on fitness and treatment exercise. Co-authored 6
diagnostic and physiotherapeutic computer programs, as well as
the website www.mbfmethod.com. All programs and the website

correction and practical trials of the MBF method program took place
over many years. The authors searched, found, and replaced in their
practice the new and fresh ideas, approaches and presentations of
specialists in the bio-medical, sports, healthy exercise, diet,
physiology, and biology fields published in Europe, America, and Asia.
Our most important resources for our research and publications
are as follows:
Official Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine,
Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise.
Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription (Fifth Edition);

Unfortunately, it is not practical to give the bibliography in the
computer program and website. Besides that, there are often similar
ideas presented in various publications.
The interpretation of the various scientific givens, algorithm of
computer programs, some mathematical formulas, modification of the
known, and the design of original systems and complex exercises
accomplished by the authors are the results of many years of practical
experience and solid medical research. The authors continue the design
of the practical parts of the program and will soon continue different
systems of exercises in accordance with age, sex, height, weight,
physical fitness and general conditioning. The illustrations are
followed by explainable text. Out of the set of exercises, the program
allows one to pick out certain blocks and receive the exercises on a
piece of paper or on a CD.
