This company "powerinsole" in Austria makes wild claims about the scientific merits of it's medical device "powerinsole". It is a device they claim uses electro resonance to transmit information from chip storage to the cells in your feet. The claim is dubious yet the overall tone of the website is science/science/science. There are links to papers and supposed endorsements from prestigious research organisations, one of which has publicly rejected the claims made by the company.
Notwithstanding the attempt to veneer the product with scientific credibility, at the bottom of each page there is the disclaimer.
Please note that despite its repeated success in various fields, the Powerinsole is not a medical product! In the event of illness, Powerinsole is by no means a substitute for going to the doctor, nor does Powerinsole replace medication prescribed by a doctor or medical treatment!
My question is:
Is this disclaimer by powerinsole enough in Austria to protect the company from prosecution for selling medical devices without the correct authorization?
