The diagnostic spectrum of the clinic extends from laboratory tests in collaboration with the Institute of Microbiology and the Institute of Pathology at tissue studies, modern diagnostic ultrasound, and x-ray, CT and MRI diagnosis on lung function testing, to weld testing and usual allergological investigation procedure.

To exclude nocturnal sleep-related breathing disorders and nocturnal seizures we provide the extended examination in the sleep laboratory. A special attention is attached tp the treatment of respiratory diseases, in addition to the medical and nursing care and intensive physiotherapy. Frequent sudden loss of consciousness (syncope) is in addition to the studies mentioned above, the possibility of the stress test by a test or a Schellong tilt table.


A supra-regional focus of the clinic is the diagnosis and treatment of children with neurological disorders. These include, besides epilepsy, neuromuscular and metabolic diseases neuro, inflammatory diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, movement disorders, phacomatoses complex, perinatal damage to the nervous system or congenital malformation syndromes.

The diagnostics at the pediatric center of Friedrichshafen

The clinic has a fully equipped lab with EEG waking and sleep EEG, 24-hour EEG, video camera and double polysomnography. Besides we also perform electrophysiological studies (e.g., evoked potentials, nerve conduction velocity). There are modern imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography and Doppler investigations. Chemical laboratory tests, metabolic and CSF are carried out to clarify unclear neurological syndromes.

In addition to specific laboratory tests, musculoskeletal sonography and muscle biopsy can be performed for the diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases.
