Digital Health Systems

Development partner for tomorrow's medicine

In industrialized nations, chronic conditions are the most common cause of death. These include cardiovascular diseases, cancer, respiratory diseases, but also mental disorders, which have a significant impact on the quality of life of patients and their families. In addition, the resulting treatment costs and absences from work pose a major economic challenge to the healthcare system.

Our goal is to help people with chronic conditions live better lives through digital medicine. Our work focuses on

  • the psycho-physiological monitoring of patients,
  • AI-based signal and data processing, and
  • the intelligent networking of data.

We are in close contact with medical experts and our interdisciplinary network of universities and clinics, so we understand the hopes and requirements involved in diagnosing, treating and caring for chronically ill patients. Together with our customers and partners from the medical engineering sector, we help patients determine their own healthcare and we improve its quality at home, at doctors’ offices and in clinics by optimally networking the supply chains.

We would be happy to carry out the complete system development for you and support you from the first feasibility analysis through to product certification in the digital health market.

Feel free to contact us for more information regarding medical sensors, integrated healthcare and image analysis. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
