Success stories

  • Team IUVAS
  • Moritz Knoblauch, David Fehrenbach, Sinan Denemec of IUVAS

    IUVAS offers a new drinking aid to help those with swallowing disorders drink more easily, without fear of choking. It allows the patient complete emptying of the cup, without bending his head. Thus, the cup prevents pneumonia, since the lungs do not fill with fluid. In the MedTech Bootcamp 2014, IUVAS further developed their prototype and business model and presented it in front of investors. Since then, the team receives the EXIST grant and is close to serial readiness of its prototype. Furthermore, the three founders managed to get on the famous Forbes list of the European "30 under 30".
  • Simon Spiegel, Christian Anton, Helfried Peyrl, Alexander König of Reactive Robotics

    The start-up Reactive Robotics builds robots for very early mobilization (VEM) with its patented, modular technology. Their device will be used in gait rehabilitation of neurological patients and in orthopaedic patients after joint replacement. The method leads to shorter treatments and better chances of recovery. In the MedTech Bootcamp 2014, the team around Alexander König further developed their business model and got into contact with investors. The founders now have a strategic investor on board and can bring the prototype to market maturity.
