Reactive Robotics

Intensive Care Rehabilitation

We build robots for early movement rehabilitation of
neurological and neurosurgical patients.


Reactive Robotics develops robots for very early mobilization (VEM) of intensive care unit (ICU) patients with its patented, modular technology. Our devices are used in gait rehabilitation of neurological and neurosurgical patients. We develop, manufacture and sell rehabilitation robotics that automate gait rehabilitation already in the ICU at the very early state, 48 hours after onset of neurological injury or surgery.

Neurological rehabilitation

Gait rehabilitation after neurological injury such as stroke, spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury often starts in the standard care unit after the patient has left the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). New clinical studies prove that the time the patient spends in the ICU holds enormous potential for improvement of rehabilitation: stroke patients that underwent intensive VEM therapy could be transferred from the expensive ICU to less expensive standard care units at least one day earlier while showing significantly better clinical scores six months post stroke than the control group. These studies point at increased plasticity of the injured brain right after injury on which intense VEM therapy can leverage on.


Combining world class robotics with experienced startup leadership.


Reactive Robotics 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. 12 employees and students are working hard as engineers, programmers, quality managers or in business development to bring this device to the patient.

ESA BICFrom 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, the German Hightech Venturefonds, Bayern Kapital and TQ Group. In March 2016, we presented the first prototype of our device and are working hard to deliver our first clinical testproduct in Q2/2017.

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.
