Body & knowledge

Here you will become an expert on your body. Find out in concrete terms, but simply prepared, how a joint works or how your heart is structured. We have put together interesting and unrelated information for you in the “Body in Numbers”. In this area you will gain a better understanding of your body - and therefore also of your health.
