Please donate for a new book!

In September 2019 we started the project “New Edition of Manipulative Therapy in Czech”. The project is to re-edit Professor Lewit’s textbook, which still has an important place in the education of doctors and physiotherapists who use their own hands to treat patients. We know that in spite of today’s modern robotic-instrumental world view, human hands are irreplacable in the treatment of pain in the locomotor system.
The textbook is no longer available in the Czech Republic (5th edition, Sdělovací technika) and the new generation no longer has a source to learn from. Professor Lewit was known to continually search for new knowledge and to include these new insights into his textbook. The most recent version is the 2009 edition in English (Manipulative Therapy, Churchill Livingstone). We respect the wish of Professor Lewit that this last edition with the latest observations be translated and published.
In order to publish the Manipulative Therapy textbook in Czech again we need 300 000 Kč, mainly for the translation from English to Czech.
If you feel concerned by our project, please support it by donating any sum via:

About the Foundation Fund

We are physiotherapists, all direct pupils of Professor Karel Lewit, neurologist and rehabilitation specialist, with whom we have been collaborating for years. Each of us has her own practice, or teaches and has a group in a health center. We teach, organise talks, seminars, are active in various groups related to physiotherapy or psychosomatics. This work is our professional link; we have known each other for years. Nevertheless, we all met for the first time in the Lewit home in Dobřichovice in order to preserve his professional heritage,when he passed away in October 2014, aged 98.
