Reactive Robotics GmbH is on track

September 8, 2017

Clinical validation, market entry in Germany and further countries secured by second investment round with existing and new investors

Founded in 2015 in Munich, Reactive Robotics GmbH is a medical device start-up with the corporate objective to provide the best possible Very Early Mobilization (VEM) to intensive care patients as early as 24 hours after hospital admission, directly in the patient’s bed. Amongst experts, VEM is regarded as one of the key factors contributing to the faster recovery of patients.

Reactive Robotics is developing an intelligent therapy device that replaces burdensome manual VEM therapy with an effective, easy and time-efficient robotic solution, enabling care takers and therapists to focus their time and energy on the patients.

Therapy that is currently only possible with enormous physical efforts by care takers and therapists should – with the help of Reactive Robotics’ intelligent systems – now become the standard-of-care.

Since Reactive Robotics GmbH’s incorporation, the company has been on track. Prototype development, the establishment of a quality management system, and cooperation with business partners and suppliers is proceeding according to plan. On a regular basis, medical Key Opinion Leaders are consulted and care-taking experts are continuously involved in product development. Leading clinics are committed to supporting the clinical validation of the solution, and business development will be systematically established.

To keep up the pace in development and go-to-market, the existing investor consortium consisting of the lead investor MTIP MedTech Innovation Partners AG, High-Tech Gründerfonds, Bayern Kapital and TQ-Group, was extended by an additional lead investor: Dr. Doll Holding GmbH.
A seven-digit investment amount should enable Reactive Robotics to achieve the ambitious time plan and to accelerate the international market entry.
