What we do

Innovations for medical technology

The main focuses of our medical technology development activities are laboratory diagnostics, medical robotics, and assistance technology. For instance, we develop robotic surgical systems and lightweight exoskeletons. We follow a usability engineering approach throughout the entire development phase, ensuring that usability in professional medical practice always remains at the center of every consideration. With systematic attention to ergonomic aspects, we build prototypes, carry out field testing and stress testing, and undertake manufacturing of small batches.

Head of Instrumentation
Biotype GmbH

„imk is our partner for instrument development, reacting very quickly to new situations and proactively putting together strong teams that work on developments almost like a division within our own company. With their outstanding expertise in the management of supplier networks, imk also performs very strongly in areas where they themselves do not have technical expertise, meaning that even as a small-scale partner they can achieve big things.“

Jens Junker

Managing Director
ROTOP Pharmaka GmbH

„The realization concept developed by imk for a semi-automated solution for the quality assurance of medical devices for pharmaceuticals greatly exceeded our expectations. imk is structured, creative, and very well connected. This meant that the friendly team was able to give us valuable input for technological developments and, in addition to the concept, provide important insights and figures in relation to feasibility, risk evaluation, and cost calculation. We have absolute confidence in their expertise, and are happy to remain a partner of imk.“
