Intelligent Robotics for Very Early Mobilization of Intensive Care Patients


Economic and demographic trends demand an increase in efficiency in the healthcare system. In times of aging population and a shortage of healthcare professionals, new therapy interventions need to be developed.

Reactive Robotics GmbH is the first company worldwide that systematically addresses the Very Early Mobilization (VEM) of patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

We develop an intelligent, adaptive robotic system to support critically ill patients and their care takers.

Our Focus:

  • To build a complementary rehabilitation therapy solution for patients in the ICU, who are too sick for only manual therapy.
  • Provide a solution which enables faster recovery for critically ill patients - while easing the work of the care takers and improving overall effectiveness.
  • We bring the therapy to the patient instead of bringing the patient to the therapy.

The Importance of VEM – Very Early Mobilization Therapy

Clinical studies demonstrate that critically ill patients in the ICU who undergo VEM therapy achieve better treatment results.

Our Innovation

Our goal is to enable intensive care clinicians to provide ICU patients with the best possible care.

Our initial clients will be hospitals with ICUs for mechanically ventilated, neurological or trauma patients – for these patient groups, the largest body of clinical evidence is available. Later markets will include the large indications of orthopedic and cardiological patients, geriatric patients as well as elderly patients in home care who are unable to leave bed will follow.


Combining world class robotics with experienced startup leadership


Reactive Robotics is an ISO 13485 certified (EN, DE) manufacturer of rehabilitation robotics and was founded as a GmbH in Munich, Germany, in April 2015.

Our team has a combined 11 years of rehabilitation robotics research, vast startup experience and a large clinical network to bring this device to life. We are a diverse international team of employees and students covering the professional areas of:

  • Engineering, Quality Management, Business Development, Finance

to bring this device to the patients.

From February 2015 through October 2016, Reactive Robotics enrolled in the ESA-BIC, the Business Incubator Center of the European Space Agency.

On the investment side, we are supported by

  • Swiss Venture Capital firm MTIP
  • German Hightech Venturefonds
  • Bayern Kapital
  • TQ Group

In March 2016, we presented the first prototype of our device and in Q1/2018 we are able to deliver our first clinical testproduct.

We are proud to feature an excellent array of supporters that provide advice on every level required for the successful start-up of a medical technology company. Advisors provide access to patients, support us in engineering, on legal issues and when dealing with the details of registering a medical device with the authorities.

Since October 2016, we are located in the heart of Munich. In our spacious open office, we are developing the next generation medical technology.

Reactive Robotics is a Member of the Research Project MobIPaR (Mechatronische Entwicklung einer adaptiven Plattform zur Mobilisation Intensiv-Pflegebedürftiger), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. For further information, please visit the MobIPaR Project Homepage.
