5 Point Products by Dr Mauch are being illegally copied

10
Feb '10
Based on old Chinese reflex zone therapies, the German physician and medic Dr Walter Mauch more than 20 years ago developed the "5 point reflex zone bed". This was the beginning of an unequalled success story. Today, the shoes "by Dr Mauch" are available in more than 100 countries, either as soles or as the base of a shoe. Demand has been steadily increasing over the years.

At recent international shoe trade fairs, there have been soles and shoes that have been promoted as "5 Zone - original reflex zone bed". These products, named "New Generation", are being marketed as legitimate successors of the products by Dr Mauch. In fact, these are copies that have nothing to do with the doctrines of Dr Mauch. German court orders are being ignored. These clone products arrive from China, Romania and Italy, flooding the European market. In Italy and France, the police are investigating.
The patents, brands and the know-how of Dr Walter Mauch are protected worldwide. All rights are directly or indirectly possessed by the Mauch family and their companies. These rights are incorporated in the limited company Integra l Mauch PLC and marketed worldwide. The allocation of licenses and production rights is linked with quality standards and security guidelines.

In order to assure the quality of products by Dr Mauch, new quality and security standards have been defined. These have been valid from November 1st, 2009. It is our aim to unmask falsifiers. The moulding blanks of the soles which later on are mantled with leather or other materials are being produced according to clearly defined German standards. Shoes and soles may only be produced and marketed with the according licenses. Any misuse of brand is being pursued nationally and internationally.
