Digital Health Systems

Development partner for personalized medical engineering

Research and development services from a single source - we are the contact partner for you!

Not only do we adapt and license existing algorithms and technologies in existing systems; on request we can also provide application- and customer-specific implementation of R&D services (e.g. requirements analysis, system specification, prototype design, pilot production, test series). We would be happy to carry out complete system development for you and support you from the first steps through to product certification.

Feel free to contact us for more information. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
