Trier wheel

This special education system was developed in the 1980s in Trier (Rhineland-Palatinate) by Dr. med. Paul Slamka developed and therefore also called "Trierer Slamka education". It is a modified form of reversal education that is, the vines are raised from top to bottom. On the stick in one and a half meters height, a steering wheel-like wheel made of plastic or metal is placed. On the outer rim of the wheel are from a central trunk two to three Kordone (Legs) placed, each carrying an outwardly projecting about 30 to 40 cm long straightener and one to two replacement pin. The evolving ones shoots initially grow up, then tend to the side due to the lack of support and are eventually pulled down because of their own weight. The system will be in steep slopes like at the Moselle used. See also below bow as well as a list of all systems under training system,
