Technology, design and ergonomics -
Medical technology rethought

Development and production of medical technology, in-vitro diagnostics and medical robotics and assistance systems from a single source. That is imk Health Intelligence.




Welcome to imk Health Intelligence

The imk Health Intelligence is your independent partner for the development of groundbreaking product innovations in the Life sciences sector. As a strong team, we combine at one location the concentrated know-how and practical experience of experts in the Medical technology, in which In vitro diagnostics and in medical robotics systems, as well as in the design of gear technology. We bundle competences and as our customer you benefit from the entire portfolio of the Group of companies. Therefore, we are able to offer you the complete service from development to production planning and manufacturing for a wide range of medical technology applications from a single source.


Innovations for medical technology

Our medical technology development focus lies in the Laboratory diagnostics and the medical robotics and Assistance technology. For our customers, for example, we develop robotic Surgical systems and light Exoskeletons. Throughout the entire development phase, we follow the approach of usability engineering, so that the applicability in medical practice is always at the centre of all considerations. Taking ergonomic aspects consistently into account, we build prototypes, carry out practical and stress tests and also take on the production of small series.


Innovations for transmission technology

Whether in automotive engineering, medical technology or other industries, the Requirements for the transmission technology are extremely high today. For diverse applications powerful compact drives are required for maximum torque in the smallest installation space with particularly smooth and quiet running.
For this purpose we develop individual solutions for planetary gearboxes, friction planetary gearboxes and other special gearboxes, for example with innovative triaxial-hyperboloid arrangement.

Our approach is to get the most out of your interlocking. With our software next|gear this is possible, because the Matlab-based programme for the Gearbox design is able to calculate and analyse your idea of a gearing. next|gear enables the adaptation of micro and macro geometry so that the service life, contact and noise behaviour as well as the influence of tolerances find their optimum. Test it yourself!


We take you further

Convince yourself of our expertise, let us inspire you and contact us right away - then we will develop the medical and transmission technology of tomorrow together.

Dr Felix Zörgiebel

Head of Instrumentation
Biotype GmbH

"imk is our partner for device developments, reacting very quickly to new situations and proactively putting together strong teams that work on developments almost like a department in our own company. With excellent expertise in managing supplier networks, imk is also able to act very strongly in areas where it has no expertise itself, making big things happen as a small partner."

Jens Junker

Managing Director / Managing Director
ROTOP Pharmaka GmbH

"The implementation concept developed by imk for a semi-automated solution for the quality assurance of pharmaceutical medical devices has far exceeded our expectations. The imk presents itself as structured, creative and very well networked. In this way, the sympathetic team was able to give us valuable impulses for technological developments and, in addition to the concept, provide important insights and key figures regarding feasibility, risk assessment and cost calculation. Fully convinced by their competence, we are happy to remain imk's partner."

Stephan Oberle

Director R&D
IMS Gear

"With the method developed by imk
next | gear, the service life of the gearboxes could be significantly increased. It also results in the gearboxes running particularly smoothly and quietly. We enjoy working with such a reliable partner as imk, because their competence and expertise in this field convinces us time and again."

Your innovator for diagnostic systems,
Assistance technologies,
Robotics applications
and gear technology

In vitro diagnostics

We develop devices with complex functionality and ensure optimal usability with our expertise in product design and ergonomics.

Medical assistance systems

For the practice-oriented design of assistance systems, we use modern solutions for virtual simulation such as ema, the world's only autonomously operating digital human model.

Gearbox solutions

Our gear solutions with haptic feedback are perfectly suited for the robotic surgery systems to support minimally invasive procedures.


Hands-on innovation from a single source

optimal development and Production location

We develop in an inspiring atmosphere because the skills and know-how of development, production planning and manufacturing are bundled under one roof. This creates valuable synergies and excellent results.

Design, integration and product ergonomics

We always develop for practical use, combining user-friendliness, emotionality and aesthetics with innovative technical functionality.

cross-sector know-how

We have many years of practical experience with high development and production standards, also from other industries such as automotive and mechanical engineering or aerospace.

interdisciplinary expertise

We are a team of professionals in development, production planning, product and process ergonomics and manufacturing. This enables us to provide valid answers to all questions from materials technology to prototype construction.

Time-to-market phase

Everything in-house: skills, technology, infrastructure and a network for international development projects. Flat hierarchies and tight process chains also ensure short distances and high speed.


We reinvent the wheel for you! Using disruptive methods and technologies, we develop groundbreaking solutions and deliver results quickly.
