inomed is a leading medical device company. We develop products that help clinicians satisfy the basic principal of the Hippocratic Oath, "Primum nil nocere" - "First, do no harm". Within the context of this solemn undertaking, patient safety is the highest priority for every clinician. And while patient safety and welfare are priorities within all aspects of medicine, patient safety takes a preeminent role in the more complex and sophisticated neuro-diagnostics, neurosurgical interventions and related therapies.
The origins of inomed lay in intraoperative monitoring of neurological function. Our research in the field of our core competences is recognized as pioneering. To date, our products have been used to successfully treat a huge number of patients. inomed has been recognized by the “Top 100” Society as one of the most innovative medium-sized German companies. We are currently engaged in four research partnerships with universities and specialized institutes. For the 2012 to 2016 period, 1.5 million euros have been approved for various research projects – investment in this type of activity will result in the creation of new jobs in the areas of product development and engineering at inomed. Further benefits arising from research and development projects will be seen in the product manufacturing and production segments of our business.
Our daily activities are focused on the requirements of clinicians, medical practitioners and their patients. This provides us with a valuable calibration and reference point for our research and development programs. Being a partner and a team player are both at the heart of our values.
