KOHED is required to disclose financial or other association with any manufacture, commercial products/supporters. KOHED discloses such association with Fibroblaster TM. The instrument options will be used during the course for demonstration and practice purposes and will be offered for purchase. In no way is the sale of the products the primary purpose of this course. The techniques offered during the course are generalized and providers should decide what IASTM instrument(s) and treatment is best for each individual patient.
