ACTIVATE THE LUNG

 

 

Stimit AG was created to activate the core breathing muscle (diaphragm).

Empower Patients

Millions of patients around the world have limited capacity to activate their breathing muscles. E.g. intensive care patients lose their breathing muscle function already during the very first days of ventilation in the hospital, when this muscle is passive and inactive.1,2 Clinical complications, dependency on life-supporting devices, and even death can follow.3

 

What we do

Stimit AG is developing products based on a non-invasive technology, to stimulate this breathing muscle. 

 

Our ambition

Empower patients to breathe. 

Reduce hospital stay. 

Positive impact on survival.

We work towards activating the lung function, keep the breathing muscle strong, and potentially save lives.

Pace it - Keep it!
