About Aviv

We live in an era when simply extending lifespan is no longer the goal. Today, many people focus on “healthspan” meaning the number of years they feel healthy, stay active, and enjoy the vitality of both mind and body. Since 2017, this has been at the heart of our work at Aviv.
Aviv Clinics delivers a highly-effective personalized protocol to enhance performance in the aging brain and body via The Aviv Medical Program.
Our unique, intensive Program aims to improve the aging process by increasing cognitive and physical performance in healthy aging adults. Based on over a decade of research and development, the Aviv Medical Program is individually tailored to you, helping you achieve new standards of performance by your brain and body.

The Aviv Medical Program

A tested protocol, backed by a decade
of research

The Aviv Medical Program was developed by the Aviv team and Dr. Shai Efrati, Director of the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at the Shamir Medical Center, one of the leading teaching hospitals in Israel. Over 200,000 hyperbaric sessions have been conducted there to date. The Aviv Medical Program is based on Dr. Efrati’s extensive clinical experience with over 7,500 people having received treatment utilizing Dr. Efrati’s Protocols. The vast majority of participants reported improved cognitive and physical performance*. *While more robust studies are needed, the experiences of many of the people treated are supported by existing clinical research.

Oxygen in the spotlight

Research into the revitalizing powers of oxygen has been in the spotlight recently.
In October 2019, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to three researchers for their discovery of how living cells sense and react to changes in oxygen levels.

Today, we understand that our body senses fluctuations in oxygen, and that rejuvenation processes can actually be triggered by these oxygen fluctuations.
This is one of the main principles behind the Aviv medical protocol.

Our team includes physicians, neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, physiologists, experts in the aging process, and data specialists at the forefront of medical science and technology.
