Unsere Geschichte

Getrieben von einer Mission

LIME wird die Handtherapie durch intelligente Technologie nachhaltig verbessern.

Our story started with the participation in "Jugend forscht" (Youth investigates, a German researcher competition for students). Pascal presented a robot hand, which was actually intended to use in dangerous situations such as in space. In order to transform it into a hand prothesis in the next step, he spoke to the senior hand surgeon of the University Hospital of Mainz

During this conversation with our founding father and provider of advice and ideas Dr. Hanke Pascal realized that an intelligent hand therapy device is more urgently needed than a prothesis: all therapists are massively overburdened but only intensive therapy allows a positive therapy progress 

During the collection of ideas and concepts, Dominic joined the team. Together we started to work on our first prototype. We received overwhelming feedback from therapists, doctors and during numerous competitions. This motivated us to found LIME medical GmbH and to make our ideas become reality. 

Since then, the team has been growing and we are passionate about sustainably improving hand therapy.



Step by step towards the future

After founding LIME medical GmbH in October 2016, we realised the implementation of our idea step by step and are now getting closer and closer to our goal.
